about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Maggie had an Easter party at preschool yesterday and of course, I forgot the camera. Just imagine cheese doodles, cheese cubes and crackers, bunny cupcakes and Spring m&m's and a bunch of children with juice boxes. Of course, there were treat bags (and I forgot our treats and have to take them tomorrow) and Maggie was allowed one piece of candy after nap.

The weather is supposed to be delightful starting tomorrow and going through the weekend, so I took the girls to the not-so supercenter to get Ellie a swing for the swingset. We'll be spending lots of time outside this holiday weekend. I wore her in the K'Tan and put the swing up and then I couldn't resist letting her try it out for a few minutes after lunch. She wasn't so sure at first, but then she loved it. She'll enjoy it even more when Maggie is on the swing next to her.

We haven't cloth diapered since Saturday because of a nasty diaper rash. Poor Ellie is teething (SIX teeth) and has been going to the bathroom A LOT. She's still pretty happy, but she puts everything in her mouth and likes to bite on anything or anyone around.

Big Daddy and I are hoping to visit a few new places this weekend. We are feeling a little desperate to find somewhat local places to go this summer. We need a new normal and we are missing our old hometown and wondering if anywhere will ever really feel like home again. I guess after nine years, Sanford grew on us!

Tomorrow is the preschool Easter parade and Egg Hunt and we have the Library Egg Hunt on Thursday, followed by Big Daddy's day off on Friday. We are hoping to be busy having fun all weekend long! And have I mentioned how crazy in love I am with Big Daddy right now? It must be the Spring air!!

My doctor's visit last Wednesday went well. The new doctor gave me two new medicines for my asthma and referred me to a podiatrist for my toenail fungus.On Monday, I'll be leaving the girls with my mom while I go to the doctor. Hopefully, I'll come back minus my problem.

Until next time...

Another Brad update: Brad has continued to respond appropriately to questions. The doctor's made the decision to put him back into a medically induced coma last night because he was breathing against the ventilator. This will allow them to control his breaths and it will keep him from getting upset. Please keep praying for him and his family. There are lots of fundraisers in the works because the family is going to need help with the medical expenses. This is day 28 of his hospital visit.

I love this time of year and the weather is going to be great. Hope y'all find some fun things to do around there. I think my allergies are starting to act up today.

Still amazed at "Brad"!! Praise God. My favorite part of your post was how you are crazy in love with your hubby! Yay for Love! The girls are precious, as always!

It takes time for a new place to become "home." It will, I have faith. Isn't it crazy what sugar does to kids, one piece of candy is a good idea!
