The Easter Bunny Came!!

H A P P Y E A S T E R ! The boys enjoyed their own little indoor Easter egg hunt indoors Sunday morning. They didn't get it at first, but once they realized there were eggs (filled with candy) "hidden" throughout the house, they were having a good time. They surprisingly didn't fight over many of them either. Overall, it was really cute and really fun. They weren't into their wheelbarrows as much as I was hoping they would - but we can save them for the Cape this summer. I think it will be fun to use the shovels and fill them up with sand, or shells, or even some water from the ocean. What they REALLY loved was the $2 "grass" that filled up their baskets. Of course it makes a massive mess and I was having an anxiety attack over it. But they were having fun. Look at them! Then we Facetimed with my sister and Jim's mom...the boys love using the iPad.   We made it to Auntie Debbie's around 2ish...we didn't

Easter Prep! Art Projects, Baskets, Cupcakes, and Food

At daycare on Friday, the boys made these adorable Easter projects. She used a picture of them, a bunch of cotton balls, and turned them into Easter bunnies! How cute!! She does so many crafts with them, it's so fun to see the pictures while I'm at work. Conor - Caden - Then we met the actual Easter Bunny at the Burlington Mall. Instead of sitting on his lap, he came over and greeted us and we gave him a few high fives. We were shy at first, but warmed up towards the end. :) We went grocery shopping to pick up a few things for Easter on Sunday. I am in charge of some delmonico potatoes, green beans, and cupcakes. I also grabbed some things to make dinner last night - since it was Good Friday. I picked up some salmon and shrimp - and made dinner for me, Jim, Jordan, and Chelsea. I unfortunately didn't take any pics while making it - but I sauteed some EVOO, diced red onion, red bell pepper, orange bell pepper, scallions, and let it simmer for a while til everything s

Mama Mondays!

Mondays are my favorite. I know that may seem contradictory to the common person...but it's the one weekday where I am able to spend time with my boys. Granted, I don't have every Monday off (even though I would love that), but I have every other Monday off and for that, I am grateful. I love my day with them. With that said, this Monday felt different. The reason for that is we have taken a little break from Early Intervention. While I am still an advocate for the program and think it works wonders for some families - I feel we have a lot going on, and I personally needed a little break. There have been some scheduling issues lately and lots of time spent (too much time spent) with visits from their SLP and others. Honestly, between you and I, I need a break. I want my Mondays back. I want to be able to play games with them, go on walks with them, take a ride with them, run some errands -- and NOT feel so constricted with their schedule. I am already a stickler when it com

Mama Solo Weekend!

Jim ventured down the Cape this weekend to do some work on our Cape house. We have a renter coming in Memorial Day weekend so we wanted to fix a few things, and buy some new storm doors. Our old ones were rusted out. He and his brother Joe went down to the Cape on Friday night, and will hopefully be back sometime before naptime today. Mama had a fun weekend with Conor and Caden -- and even had a nice visit with Aunties Chrissy and Lindsey yesterday! Chrissy had her bridal makeup trial, and we had some lunch/snacks. It was a fun afternoon. But first, a quick recap of St. Patrick's Day on Thursday... Friday night consisted of a visit to Daddy's work, a lot of hanging out, and enjoying some PIZZA!  Saturday morning started off with blueberry pancakes! YUMMY! And then Saturday, a fun afternoon with Aunties! Lindsey spent some time with Con...and Chrissy was sharing her soda water with Caden. :) Then the makeup trial st
