Day 50. 2012.

Meet the kids new playmate....


Their auntie got a brand new baby puppy this week and we have been over to visit almost every single day.

She is soo cute!

Day 49. 2012.

I have been extremely busy the past month, and today was one of the craziest days of them all!

Here's a true, 'day in the life' glimpse at my everyday....

My 'littles' aren't so little anymore...

1st grade field trip.

I had a great time skating...wish I could say the same for my son, but it wasn't really his cup of tea! DSC_0085 DSC_0092

We came home and couldn't stay inside on such a wonderful day so we ventured down to play on the bales while watching Uncle Brent plant their soybeans. DSC_0596

My kids love their cat, you can't tell or anything can you?! DSC_0511 DSC_0538 DSC_0540 DSC_0560 DSC_0561 DSC_0522

I think all three of them are going to love the fact that they grew up on a farm, someday.

Tonight, I was having a blast just watching them! DSC_0622 DSC_0621 DSC_0553 DSC_0549 DSC_0566 DSC_0584 DSC_0610

While Madi went to spend time in the tractor with her dad, the boys and I had a great time together playing and being silly. DSC_0647 DSC_0651 DSC_0659 DSC_0667

Day 48. 2012.

We celebrated Mother's Day a day early with my mom and after enjoying the wonderful Italian meal she made for us (she insisted), we spent the beautiful evening outside playing at the park.

I am so lucky to have such an amazing woman in my life who has loved me through thick and thin.

Growing up, I'd often hear that I was the spit-en image of her.

This used to bother me, because I wanted to be my own person, and I would always say, 'I just look like myself.'

Today, however, I feel extremely fortunate that I take after her, and I hope that I can be half the mom to my three that she was to me and my sister.

Happy Mother's Day Mom! I love you!
