Mother's Day 2016

We had a fabulous Mother's Day! I got to sleep in until 10am!! Wow...I have never done that. I awoke to Acadia and Jordan bringing me a plate of bacon in bed. Yum! They let me watch a little HGTV while I sipped my coffee. Then we went for a walk at Wildwood Nature Park. It was ALIVE with wildlife. The air was warm with cool breezes, the sky was brilliant blue with fluffy white clouds. Such a gorgeous day! After our walk, we met up with Mom and Pop for dinner at Carrabas. Delish! A quick bike and rocket ride up to the church parking lot rounded out our day! It was the best Mother's day ever!

Project365 {A Walk In Our Jammies}

I'm trying to get back in the saddle, so to speak! I haven't abandoned my project 365, I just haven't been posting on my blog.  I've been taking photos every day but have been focusing on editing and I'm just not getting it! But I press on because overall I'm just so pleased with where I am, photographically speaking, and how far I've come. Still so far to go and much to learn, but finding it all so therapeutic at times.
With this beautiful spring weather, we have been starting to spend a lot of evening time outside. Not always practical on school/work nights but necessary for these 2 high energy kids.  So last night...dinner, bath, jammies,  bikeride. In that order! Hey, you do what you gotta do!

Project365 {sisters}

I read somewhere recently that your family can push your buttons because they are the ones that installed them. For as true as that can be, sometimes family can also be the only ones who can make you laugh. You know, that hard belly laugh that brings tears to your eyes and makes you face hurt!  Despite the fact that our family lost someone very special this past week, our dad's only brother, it gave me and my sister's the opportunity to spend some time recalling precious family memories and making new ones. Sisters.  Just nothing like them!

24/365 {sledding}


Finally, a day to get out and actually enjoy the snow!  We had so much fun sledding with our friends, Karena and sweet Emma.  Cadie and Emma are in the same Kindergarten class and love each other like sisters.  Sweet!  We have awesome hills to sled on just around the corner at the local High School.  Some of the kids already there built some moguls on the hills, so it was a mission each and every time to hit a mogul catch some air.  Cadie was a little scared at first, but once she got the hang of it, she seemed to enjoy it.  Jordan...well, as I've said before, he's a work in progress.  The snow does not impress him, nor did all the antics of the sledders.  He wanted nothing to do with even standing in the snow.  In fact, all of these pictures, except the one's he's in, were taken with me holding him in one arm or the other!  There was a small patch of grass that he would tolerate, but that was it.  We'll just see how this all plays out next winter.  I think this kid is going to be the first one in his snow pants!

23/365 {noodle bowl}


 Cadie's noodle bowl.  She refuses noodles in any other bowl. It must always be this bowl.  I have tried to serve her noodles in other bowls, only to have her hold out until I take this one out of the dishwasher, wash it and serve up her noodles in the proper fashion!  Yes, I'm a pushover at times.  But this daughter of mine can dig her heels in like nothing I've ever seen before.  And as a mom, you gotta pick your battles.  The noodle bowl wins!
