You are special!

I love to celebrate!! Birthdays, anniversaries, special holidays, I get exited for them all! I love making my family feel special on their special days throughout the year, and can't wait to keep celebrating as we all get older! I have always loved this ... but $30 + for a thanks! So I decided to make my own! Here it is in all it's home-made glory!

HA! I think I could have worked on it for hours, but I finally decided that my family won't be looking for tiny mistakes or critiquing my work! (Danny loves it btw. Such a sweet hubby!)
Can't wait to use it...maybe I'll be the first with the big 2-5 celebration in September!! Eeek!

School is in session.

Life is crazy!!! With work, school, homework, research, volunteer work, GRE study time, and 'can I have a moment to myself time time' Daddy is pretty maxed out. A maxed out Daddy = a maxed out Mommy for sure! Anyway, only a few more weeks until some of the craziness dies down. We are counting down the days...
During the past couple months, Mommy has found herself without a car much of the time so we have become home bodies to the max (the bike and stoller have saved us on many an occasion)! You can only play in the grass, run around making messes, and taking down mommy's decorations for so long before we all start to get a little shack wacky! A schedule is a must. The newest addition to our schedule is schooooool time!! That's right, Rowan has enrolled in Mamma Lam's Pre-Pre-Pre K School for Brilliant Children. :p He sat for a whole 10 minutes today everyone!! Whoooooo!
We did these... working on animal sounds...Ro has the monkey's "Ooooo AHHH AHHH" down pat. :)

and read these...

and sang these...

I will call it a success! Now we have done all these activities before, it was just a nice change to sit Ro down and capture his attention and brain for an extended period of time.
I am sooooo happy that I get to stay home with my baby and soak up every minute he is awake. I am so grateful to my husband for working so hard so I can do this. He is incredible. Love my boys.

Farm country.

We love visiting the Judd farm in Genola. It is so beautiful and makes me want to live on a farm for a minute ;). It's so fun to chase the chickens, pet the horses, and smell that fresh cow patty air! We even got to take home a dozen fresh eggs. We collected brown, green and even blue eggs! They were gorgeous...and tasty!!!
