Better Late Than Never

Let's get back to blogging...

Little cherished moments...

~ I was dancing crazily down the hall and Maria shouted, “Mommy, stop shakin’ your booty at me!”

~ Maria ~The squeals of excitement as you discovered the Easter bunny came. You kept covering your mouth, hiding your giggles and smiles.

~ Mark was shaking with excitement when we arrived for the Easter hunt. The whole tigger bounce that is all too precious. Your smile can light up a room.

Just getting my feet wet...

Will return another time soon!!

Gratitude Thursday

It's been too long, and I have so much to be thankful for these past few weeks. Here's what stands out in my mind...
~Uncle Wally coming to visit - it's been too long since we've seen him. He's honestly the only uncle I've ever really known. Thank you for visiting us and giving me the opportunity to remember such a beautiful person.
~For having the honor of creating a slideshow remembrance of my loving Aunt Eileen
~For beholding a ring that was my aunt's. I truly am grateful for this remembrance. I've been wearing it daily since I receive it.
~For the rainy day that stole our zoo outing away. It allowed me to spend time with M&M one on one. We had such a wonderful time at Imagine That. I asked the kids in the car what there favorite part was. Mark said the firetruck. Maria said running in the rain with you. It was a memorable run to the car in the pouring rain. I had her in my arms and she bounced up and down in the palm of my hand and he I dragged him along on the left. We slammed through puddles and screamed and laughed the whole way.

I'm sure there was more but I wanted to get these down now.

Today I am thankful for...
~ thankful to have a patient and loving husband hold my hand in the ER while we watched the history channel
~ my ER incident being just an incident and hopefully we'll get to the bottom of it soon
~ watching my children graduate from preschool last nite ... they looked absolutely adorable as they sang their hearts out in their caps and gowns
~ looking forward to a nite away with the crew in PA, on the agenda...swimming, car watching, craft buying, german food eating and cavern dwelling

Just feel like I have to say this...
I love you Mark, Mark and Maria with all my heart and soul. Please never forget it.

To all of my family members...I probably never tell you, but I love you all so much too.

Gratitude Friday

I missed last week's 'Gratitude Friday'... so here's to last week's and this week's gratitude.

I am grateful for...
~Maria dancing beautifully last Saturday. She did such a wonderful job and received so many nice compliments. I am so proud of her.
~Mark making me pictures of fire trucks and fire houses, remembering to write 'MOMMY' on top.
~Although it was sad in the moment, I am grateful that my children got upset last night when I had to go out for a bit. They make me feel so special. The welcome home was even better when they came running from either direction and Maria yelled out, "Me first!".
~My week off last week, beginning to tackle that kitchen. One step at a time.
~Excited and sad to see M&M walk off to their new classroom last Friday for their whopping 50 min in Kindergarten.
~Father's Day--Blessed to have a husband that says "I missed you was too quiet here." And follows it up with his best hugs. Hon, I love your hugs. Thanks for giving them to me every morning. And for the best Father ever, Dude, I love you so very much. Thanks for being such an awesome father.
