What a Week

On Monday we sent Spencer off to California. On Tuesday we had appointments. On Wednesday we watched cousin Hudson. On Thursday we watched cousins Sydnee and Ellery. On Friday we went to IKEA. That night Van got sick. On Saturday we did laundry, and even more laundry. Today, I pack. Tomorrow, our vacation begins.

For Spencer

Sunday, the fifteenth of May.

Blast Off!

Our Next Adventure

In case you haven't already heard. Spencer's working as a carny this summer. He's going to be running a fast pitch booth at several funfairs. He's currently on a three week stint in California. We're hoping this adventure will be profitable and give him enough downtime to prepare dental school applications and study for the DAT.

Captain Underpants

He's been wearing them for a week now. No accidents since Thursday. Dry Pull-Ups during nap time. Makes a momma proud.


Have you been pinning? I have.


At this time next week I will be here.

Lisa Falls

After Spencer finished all of his exams we knew we needed to do something fun. Van said, "We need to get up to the mountains. Let's go hiking Daddy." So that's just what we did. We took a quick jaunt up the Lisa Falls Trail. It was a perfect, little hike that led to a waterfall.

He Did It!

*Warning: This post may contain way too much information for some.
Today was one of my happiest days. Van went poo-poo on the potty! I'm so, so proud of him. We've been waiting a long time for this day to come and it finally arrived. I'm just so very happy and still can't believe that it actually happened.

To Our Mother's

Shirley: You are happy, unwearying, charitable, and creative.Kathy: You are friendly, hard working, supportive, and giving.
Happy Mother's Day to you both. We love you!

From a Mother

I love being a mom. I love being a mom to my two boys. They are everything. Today I love that Van has such a strong desire to learn. He's like a sponge, just soaking it all in. And as for Gus, I love the way his cheeks get all rosy when he wakes from a nap or has just finished nursing. Thank you Spencer for giving me the gift of motherhood, it is such a blessing to my life.

Mother's Day

Here are a couple of Mother's Day ideas that I've seen out there and absolutely loved. The adorable checklist from Ambrosia Girl I first saw here. And the bacon, egg, and toast cups are from Martha. Here's the recipe. Yum!
