events over the past couple months:*went to a marriage conference and met the duggars!
*saw veggie tales live (almost equivalent to the experience above- well, for E!)
*elijah used the potty for the first (and maybe last) time!
*daniel has started soccer, and his coach is just the best ever- daddy!
*we made the kitchen a much more cheery place to be.
and apparently, it was exhausting.
spring has sprung! i'm not sure how exciting it is considering the winter of 2011/2012 was m i l d, to say the least! we went from about 6 inches of snow in the morning, to 50 degree weather by 2pm. weird!
i do love spring though. my flowers start blooming, and the weather goes from cold to cool (it's supposed to anyway.) we just celebrated daniel's 7th birthday this week. he had some fun at bounce n play with his cousin, then a birthday party at his favorite pizza place (equipped with an arcade! i think i heard "mommy, i need another dollar" about 25 times.) then on his actually birthday, march 26th, we ate dinner at "the cook out" and took him to the mall for a couple more gifts. it was a great birthday; and a great celebration of seven wonderful years with our sweet first born!
**Daniel, you are such an incredible blessing in our lives! You made me a mommy seven years ago, and I am so very thankful for that gift. You are smart, kind, loving, goofy, and so much more. We love you so much, and that will never change. Happy seven years of life, sweet boy!**
i've also been preparing to say goodbye (for now) to one of my dearest friends as she and her family head to texas.
kathleen (and her family) has been such a blessing to us, and we're sad to see them leave; but so excited for this journey the Lord is taking them on. we had a little goodbye dinner last night..such good times!
while i was sitting at the table, the phone rang- it was abe. he called to tell me he was texting me a picture of elijah; but first assuring me that he was fine. yeah, never good when you have to be warned. -boys- i have to admit i'm becoming a little numb at this point. no concussion? don't need stitches? okay, you're good..keep going! :)
