Mother's Day #9

It seems like just yesterday it was May, 2001 and I was pregnant with Annie. Now 10 years later, I have a 9 year old and a 7 year and a baby on the way!

Over those years I have witnessed my children experience all things in life...learning about the world around them and learning about themselves.

They are remarkable children and are so different and at the same time so similar.

When they were born, I was just wanting to make sure they lived to see the next day! Now I can't wait to see what they'll do next, yet at the same time wishing I could slow time down.

This year Geoff did exceptionally well with my card, I've copied the hallmark part, but I'm gonna keep his message to me. Here ya go...

"Because you're a Special Wife and mother...
It doesn't take a day like this for me to realize how fortunate I am to be married to you...but the best thing about Mother's Day is that it gives me a chance to tell you what a wonderful wife and mother you are, and that I don't know what I'd do without you and your love"

"Happy Mother's Day with All My Heart"

Honestly, it's one of the best cards he has ever gotten me. Over the last (almost) 10 years of being married and parenting we have gone through so much and pushed each other to the brink of destruction. Now, we have come full circle and in my opinion, we are stronger and better with each other than we were in the beginning. Which of course is part of growing with someone, but it's even better than simply growing with, we've grown together.

I can only hope that we can continue to work together to continue to achieve the goals we have, together. We've accomplished a lot as a family and there is so much more to look forward to, which is the best gift I could be given, future.

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms I know.

Short Baby Shower Update

So my baby shower was Amazing!!!

So many friends braved the sirens and warnings for crazy weather and came to celebrate the coming of our sweet Melissa Jane!

It was wonderful to have so many friends from so many different parts of my life all together in one place!

Jennifer did such an amazing job hosting and everything was sooo cute and sweet!

I'll have to post more pictures from the shower later on because there are lots of them...not to mention when I was opening gifts, I made some extremely funny faces!

Everyone got Melissa Jane some really cute outfits to wear and bathtime is completely handled now! Geoff was really excited to see a baby bathtub since he likes using them to bathe babies.

It was such a special afternoon and once I finished writing thank you notes all I could and can think about is how lucky we are to have so many wonderful friends and family in our life!

Bored at school?

Ok, so last friday apparently I was REALLY bored! The kids had all finished their End-of-Course test, most of their work is done too, so I showed them a movie...but after watching the same movie over and over and over and over again, I got a little tired of it...

At least my artistic endeavors weren't completely for naught...they are nice to look at and there are still a few empty squares for me to add on to! :)

Have a great week and happy monday!

Passover 2011

So clearly I am behind on all my blog posting efforts. What can I say, life has been busy! Geoff and I have finished our classes for the semester and I took my Praxis exams on April 30, so my goal is to get better at posting before Miss Melissa Jane makes her arrival...

To that effort, this week will totally be a catchup week for me!

Here's the scoop on Passover:

We had passover seder at my dad's house. It was a busy evening full of lots of giggling and whatnot...go figure!

Jonas read the four questions this year and did an excellent job.
The kids had the camera, so all the pictures are from their point of view!

Jonas reading the questions.




And seriously, these are the best pictures of the family...ugh!

I think I'll need to take the pictures next year!

We didn't manage to take our big family picture this year, which was a little disappointing...but we will next year for sure!!!

Happy Mother's day to you all!
