Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!! Its so hard to believe that I have been a mom for already more than 4 years! Here are some of my favorite pictures from when the kids were younger...

The one thing that I have learned while working on this post is that there are NEVER enough pictures of mom and the kids~ I guess that I am the one with the camera all the time... 

Hoping that you have a wonderful day!

Mayfair End of the Year Program

 Every year, our kids have an end of the year program at their pre-school. It was so much fun seeing all 3 of ours perform this year! Josie's class just came out to say hi in the "Bye-Bye Buggy" and Addie and Alex's class performed several songs. Here are some pictures from this special day. As you can see in the picture above, taking a picture with all 3 kids, has not gotten any easier~ 

To the right, Addie was so excited to see that we were sitting in the front row. Its hard to catch her with a "REAL SMILE", but I did it several times today. 
 I LOVE this photo to the left. Check out Alex...... He is reaching for Addie's hand. This year, they were in the same class. At the beginning of the year, we were hoping that they would have been SPLIT. But, we had a GREAT year and are so thankful that they were together for at least 1 more year in school. We'll see what next year brings. Great job Addie and Alex! 

Addie & Alex: Mother's Day Program 2012

 As if I don't have enough to do.... I have decided to start writing again on the family blog! For those of you that might not know, we've been staying busy on The Coupon Centsation blog for almost two years. But, starting today, we're coming back! 

Addie and Alex had their Mother's Day program at school this week. It was awesome! They sang songs, served us snacks and presented their special gifts. I was so proud of how they sang during the program. Its so hard to believe how fast this school year has come and gone... 

Here are some pictures from our special day~ I'm looking forward to Mother's Day tomorrow!

Early Birthday with Oma

Over Thanksgiving, we decided to let the kids have their birthday with Oma while she is in town. We have agreed that with their birthday so close to Christmas that it is fine right now to spread it out. These kids will have so many gifts between the 19th of December and the 26th that they won't know what to do! So, allowing them to get some early was a good choice!
From Oma, they got a kitchen set with lots of dishes and food and a train table with lots of train accessories. These things have kept them busy all weekend! Now, if they can only learn to pick up all the dishes and toys when they are done, we will be happy :)

Alex is quite the cook! He will make you just about anything you want!

Turkey Day 2009

We decided to stay at home this year for Thanksgiving. So, our family has taken turns coming to our house. Over the holiday, mommy was fighting strep throat and a bad cold. The week before, Alex had been in the ER for a double ear infection, strep, and conjunctivitus in his one eye. However, we still had a great time this Thanksgiving!

As all family can agree with now, getting pictures is not an easy task these days! Addie and Alex are EVERYWHERE and it is so hard for them to hold still at the same time to get a perfect shot. However, we tired our best!
