Wedding Day

Cheri and Joe got married!
Woo Hoo
It's about time too!

They did a little ceremony at home last night and then there was a big party. 

Low key and so sweet.

Kevin and Pop were the official witnesses.

And mom was on cloud nine!

It has been raining off and on for like a week. That NEVER happens here. The other day Holden woke up, saw the rain, and said, "Oh no, now we can't go to school!"  She had never gone to school in the rain before, snow and ice yes, but not rain. She is not a fan, but Everett is in love with the rain and splashing in the puddles, no matter how chilly it may be.

And I just had to share two more sweet photos of Lily!

I'm Getting a Baby

Ha Ha! Did I get ya?

I am getting a baby niece on MONDAY!!!

Lillian is head up and just so wedged in there she can't seem to flip around. Despite the 37 tricks, exercises, and old wives tales Courtney and Mike have tried to get her to move. 

So, a scheduled c-section it is. Sounds like little Holden all over, I wonder if Lily will be as stubborn as Miss H?

This little lady will be entering our world the same day her brothers left it one year ago. It is bittersweet, but will always give her a special connection to the twins Courtney and Mike lost one year ago. Her guardian angels will always be watching over their little sister and protecting her. 

Mother's Day will be crazy as these two expectant parents usher in family and friends anxiously awaiting Baby Lillian. Mike's parents along with Grandma and Opa will be here for the celebration and we are planning a big Mother's Day picnic at Mike and Courtney's to celebrate and anticipate their big day on Monday.

We are just twiddling our thumbs and counting the minutes till we all get to meet this precious baby, smother her with love, and spoil her rotten. 

In the brilliant words of my son, Everett (the scholar),

"Baby Wee Wee  comin soon!"

He can't say the L sound very well so we have 

Wee Wee- Lily
Wee-Wee-In- Lillian

We will see you soon angel face:)

Big Day

The end of the school year is drawing near...(did you hear the sigh?).

Now, we all know I adore my children, I love them to pieces with all I have, 
 but man, I get about 3 hours a week, while they are in school to do a million things and I am scared of a summer without that time.

Anyway, that's another post for another day. Today is all about how proud I am of my little munchkins. We started the morning at Happy Valley watching Holden's spring performance with her classmates. 

We sat outside next to the animals in the sun and breeze and got excited for summer while listening to the amazing talent of a bunch of 4 year olds!

H was felling a little under the weather and sleepy so her performance was peppered with many
 coughs and exaggerated yawns!
She was very proud to give me some love and Mother's Day gifts.

We all loaded up and headed to Everett's school for his last day celebration. I didn't realize it would be such a big deal and I was glad to have the camera!

Big sis was happy to help with the replacement of hats!

And the eating of the ice cream sundaes!

Like Ev's 2 handed style. That hand follows the spoon to catch anything that doesn't make it all the way to his mouth. He just shovels the lost pieces in with his dirty little fingers.

We were so glad to have Ian along for the morning to share all this fun and excitement!

Where's The Fire?

Last weekend we loaded up and headed down to Colorado Springs to spend some time with our old friends. J.T. had a party to celebrate his second birthday and we had a sleepover at Ty and Nichole's.

Emily and Holden had their second sleepover, sleeping in the same room and everything and it took about 3 hours for them to settle and finally fall asleep.  The biggest obstacle was apparently Holden's thumb sucking.

Holden:  "Emily keeps saying she hears squeaking and she can't sleep. 
I can't hear anything though?!?!"
Emily:  "It's your thumb! When you suck it it squeaks!"

Those girls.....

Anyway, the next morning we took the crew down to the Blackforest Fire and Rescue to visit Mr. Ty at work. The kids had a blast tearing through the fire station, riding the truck, blowing the horn and flipping the sirens off and on, which I am sure all the neighbors loved.

As usual, Nichole took some very cute pictures and I will let them tell the rest of the story!

So I am a finalist in this contest on a Design Blog. And I NEED you, yes YOU to head over and vote for the awesomely cool dresser I redid for Everett's big boy bedroom.

It looks like this, just so you don't accidentally vote for another project 

(even if you think it is better than mine). You are MY friend after all!
