We're Alive - Here's Proof!

Sorry to be such a negligent blogger. Life has just taken me on a different path right now and blogging is not top on my list of things to do! We're still alive. Boys are healthy and doing well. Tim and I are great! We're just busy.

It's time to learn to swim. Jack and Mason are NOT fond of the water (at least swimming in it) and at the prodding of parents, we've enrolled them in a Swim America Swim Program. We forewarned the instructor that they might not even get in but to our surprise, the cute young girl, enticed them in and at the end they said that "it was fun!".

No we didn't get heads wet or put our faces in but it's a step - and now with a little enticing of my own, hopefully we'll see some progression in the next four weeks so that we have two children who like the water and will have fun this summer - keep your fingers crossed!

It's hard to believe that four whole years, a total of 1460 days have passed since this sweet precious little boy came into the world and made our family complete. Making Tim a Daddy again, me a Mommy again, and Jack a BIG BROTHER!

Yes, sometimes I wonder how we survived his first year with countless trips to the pediatrician, hospitalizations, pulling him out of daycare for a month to get him healthy and MANY MANY MANY sleepless nights just worrying about him. But we did it....and then some!

Now, he's full of life, of fire and of attitude. He's his own person. Strong willed, determined and loving are probably the three words that I can best describe him by. Three words to me that will always remind me of Mason. He will always be my baby! But today....he's FOUR!

Happy Birthday, Mason!
Mommy, Daddy & Jack Love You!

A Painting PAW-ty!

How do you celebrate a 4th Birthday? Why...with a visit to The Painting Paw, in Chesterfield for some time to let your creative juices flow! Mason, along with Jack, Sophie & three of his friends from school spent some time on Sunday celebrating his birthday and had a BLAST!

Yes, he was partially influenced by Mommy for his venue selection, but how could we pass it up when Stacey Donnelly and her staff at The Painting Paw do it ALL for you when you throw a PAW-ty! The invites, the fun, the cake..... I didn't have to lift a finger! And....the best part.....a week later you pick up your pieces of artwork and have a souvenir to remember your special day by.

Thanks to everyone who joined us! We had a great time and were so glad that you could celebrate with us.

In The Blog House!

I was informed this evening by my sister (Thanks D!) that I am a sucky blogger now that I have a job that keeps me off of the internet during the day (which is perfectly fine by me). So I lack in updates but what is really sad is that we have no real ultra blogworthy updates anyway!

Weather has been normal, boys have been healthy, Tim & I have been healthy, the boys got new shoes (so what) and they are now official card carrying members of......................the St. Louis County Library! Yep, Library Cards! We took our first adventure a couple of weeks ago and came home with 15 books and 1 DVD! But you don't want to hear about that do you? No...

So........I have nothing to share except for these cute pictures of Easters past! Until next time! {Smooches}

A Little Of This A Little Of That

There is only one word to describe my life right now and it's busy. But it's a good busy. My days of updating my blog during lunch are a thing of the past as I am finding myself working THROUGH my lunches right now. But the's AWESOME! It's going so well I couldn't be happier. There's still so much to learn but I am surrounded by some wonderful people who are so helpful and willing to listen to me ask my questions and help me through my lack of understanding.

As for life at home with Tim and the boys....we've been up to a little of this and a little of that. Two bouts of the stomach bug (nope, no pictures from that!) but thankfully only a short 4 hours of misery before it subsided.

We had a visit with Moots......

And a trip to the bowling alley just to work off some of our pent up energy.....

And then spent a morning with some creative fun!

Just a little of this and a little of that. Nothing too major or all that exciting. I knew that it was about time for an update before someone starting wondering what had happened to me and my blog. So here it is............the obligatory update for all of you who are still followers! We are all alive and kickin and doing well.
