playing catch up

so what i really wanted most for mother's day was a picture of me with my boys, but alas, since sundays are the most hectic days ever it never happened! all i really wanted on easter too was a nice family picture, but again - sunday! busy! in fact, on mother's day i even dressed my boys in their easter outfits thinking that we could maybe get a second chance but nope!
oh well...i love being a mother and darek and the boys took good care of me,
so no complaining here!

yummy cake

and homemade cards
you can't really see in the picture but atticus was very diligent in coloring the "R"
red on my card and was so proud of it. he talked about it all day long! we hung it on the fridge
and every time he's pass by he'd point out how great that red R looked. true talent!

and flowers
potted ones that we could add to the landscaping that is very slowly happening in our yard
but...it's a little kept secret that i am a convicted plant killer and despite my best efforts this little
plant was sent to an early grave. seriously! water! that's it right? i tried...it died.

and ironically as i was uploading this picture yesterday the boys were outside totally
and completely obliterating this plant. they tore it to shreds!
so i'm thinking that even if i hadn't killed it, they would have.

easter

again, didn't get the pics i wanted
in fact we never even got around to dying eggs or doing an easter egg hunt
sorry kids

but luckily the easter bunny still stopped by with baskets
so we still got chocolate
and everyone was happy

I hear you on the picture thing :) !! Trying to take family pictures on a Sunday either before or after church [before can be too early when you have 9 am church, and by the time you get home, everyone is hungry and on melt down mode!]is a bit chaotic. I normally have the same desire, though - to get at least a decent snapshot of me and the kidlets.

The funny thing about this year, though, is it didn't even cross my mind until AFTER the fact that I wanted Easter and Mother's Day pictures. Oops ... something about being 9 months pregnant on Easter and then having a brand new infant on Mother's Day :) !!

We love and miss you and hope to see you sometime this decade ;) !! Congrats, too, on the pregnancy! Such exciting times!
