May 8th?

Has it really been that long since I wrote a blog entry? Holy cow time flies. I will fully admit that I'm a "why do today what I can put off until tomorrow?" person much of the time. But I really have been quite busy lately.

 My Dad came to visit*:


then my Mom came to visit:


I edited these photos to look seventies-ish but looking at them now I think everyone appears to have gone a little heavy on the self tanning lotion. I'll have to work on that.

We've also been busy with landscaping stuff (and by we I mean Chris- although I did pick out the annuals he planted). We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into with such a large yard. This is our first Spring in Wisconsin (and in our new house) so it's been fun to watch everything bloom and to learn the names of the plants/trees/bushes/flowers in our yard. To my delight I discovered we have a Lilac shrub/tree in our backyard. I literally followed the scent and found it. I love little surprises like that.

Probably the biggest reason for my absence as of late is...sleep. I take it where I can get it these days. If my two little ones are sleeping, I'm not far behind. I used to blog during naptime. I'll get there again. I hope! 


*The thought of editing/posting multiple pictures was a bit overwhelming to me today. Instead of not posting at all I picked two of my favorite photos from their visits to share. Not posting at all is for losers.

Hooray!! I'm glad to read your update AND so glad everyone is doing well. I thought maybe you'd headed this way for Da'Gorgeouses birthday celebration after all & somehow got lost along the way!

I'm with you on the pics, better to edit & post a couple than none at all---and those are both PRECIOUS!! As for the self-tanning, I have no idea what you're talking about, everyone in my house is a few shades darker than that so it's all good---LOL!!

Hugs & Blessings!
