Welcome Baseball Season!

Jackson started his first year of Little League! He is so excited to be playing baseball's been a long winter. I haven't heard one.single.complaint. from him-they have been practicing in the rain and it's still somewhat cold. At his 3rd practice, he caught his first "fly ball" (a little guy on his team hit a pop fly to 3rd base). He was soooo excited! We were all there to see it as well!

Way to go Bud!

New Puppy

and no, it is NOT ours......even though this little munchkin would LOVE for it to be!
This is my sister and her Family's new puppy, Lyla. All the kids love to hold and argue over the puppy....ALL.DAY.LONG. The dog is really cute, just throws a new dimension into all the kids interacting. We are working REALLY hard on sharing these days. All good lessons for sure!

An Irish Fam

Shawn made a yummy, Traditional, Irish meal for us on St. Patrick's Day....yep, you guessed it, Corned Beef & Cabbage. I love corned beef, just not a huge fan of cooked cabbage. (Shhhhh....don't let my kids know).

Thank You Daddy-O!

Since I had the next day off, I made the kids green crepes for breakfast. Jackson said that maybe the leprechauns made the food green! Cute!

Happy Saint Paddy's Day

If you're Lucky Enough to Be Irish, You're Lucky Enough!

An Irish Prayer
May God give you....
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a Blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A Faithful Friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

C H E E R S!

Weekend at the Cabin

We had a fun weekend at The Brown's Family Cabin with our Friends!

The Boys

Crue, Jake, Jackson, Tate

Tate getting ready to pull the other boys.....just kidding, they were just playing around waiting for one of the Dads to give them a ride.

Crue and Jackson riding down together on the sled....They had so much fun!

Ava, Crue and Jackson playing out in the snow together!
I wish I had gotten more pictures. I forgot to take my camera with me on our long snow mobile ride that we all went on together (adults and kids) it was beautiful up in the hills!
Thanks Becs & Eric and Leah & Brady! We had so much fun seeing and hanging out with everyone!

Our friends Charles and DeDee came over with their twins the other night for dinner. Darling little 4 month old boys, Landon & Kai. Apparently Shawn can only handle one at a time:)
These boys are sure a blessing to their parents who waited a very, very long time for them!

Ellee was the VIP at preschool! She waited a long time for this day (she was the last one in her class). I had to reschedule on a day I didn't have to work inorder to be there with Rylee-the dog & Daddy-O....Jackson had school, so he was unable to be there.

I'm in charge here! I'm sitting in the other "Teacher Chair"

This little girl knew exactly what to do on her day and was proud to show off for her Daddy and I.

I can do it all by myself too!

Ellee's VIP Poster she showed and told about at school.

Ellee, You are a VIP in our eyes and in God's!
