Warm Weather and Hand Made Warm Fuzzies!

I am sooo glad that we're finally getting some warm weather here! We've been bombarded with rain and chilly weather for weeks now and I think I would be good if I don't see another rain cloud for a very long time! Its interesting that Sweet Pea's daddy and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary this weekend, and I remember when we got married it rained Every. Single. Day. until our wedding day, when it didn't rain at all! So, I always expect lots of rain around this time of year. But, that doesn't mean I accept it!

So, to celebrate some sunshine, Sweet Pea and I played outside for a bit before dinner tonight. She LOVES bubbles, too bad she hasn't mastered how to actually MAKE bubbles. She'll figure it out!

Also, I was surprised by my very first "hand made" Mother's Day card this evening when I picked Sweet Pea up from the baby sitter (who also happens to be one of my BFFs :) Check out this fabulous artwork! I see an artist in the making!!!

Happy Mother's Day 2010

We had a great mother's day this year! The weather was a bit chilly, but, it felt great to be outside! We went to my mom's house and grilled and played with the kids. We can't believe how big Sweet Pea is getting!!! Can you believe how much she's grown since last year??? Click here to see Mother's Day 2009!

The Girl Loves Hardware Stores and Heavy Machinery!

Yesterday we had an appointment with the local school district's Parents as Teachers program. I love the lady who has been assigned to us, she'so nice and Sweet Pea loves her! One of the toys she brought with her was a book on farm equipment. Every time Sweet Pea looked at the book and came to a page with a picture of a tractor on it that girl went nuts! It was the funniest thing! I think its especially cool because my dad owned an excavation company that he built from the ground up - no pun intended! I guess her daddy and I never thought of even exposing her to things like that, and all the gifts she's ever recieved were either gender neutral or girly.

Its even more funny that after that we made a family trip to Home Depot to look at some floor lamps and Sweet Pea was in absolute heaven! I've never seen a kid so excited to be at a hardware store! She was squeeling with sheer delite and running up and down the isles with her arms straight out in front of her as her daddy and I chased behind. It was a sight to see!

Later that afternoon we went out to eat and across the parking lot there was some construction going on and a big Cat backhoe parked right there and Sweet Pea got sooooo excited! Needless to say, I'm making a trip to the toy store to get my baby girl some tractor toys!
