It is hard to believe my baby is 4 years old today. He is defiantly one little ball of energy and has kept us on our toes.
Liam's favorite thing is still mickey mouse!

We love you! More pics from his special day yet to come. He got to go to build a bear for his birthday! Here is a picture of his quick birthday cake creation. Kind of looks like a cross between mickey and a clown.

Mothers Day

Happy belated mothers day to you all mommy readers. The kids brought me loads of mothers day goodies home from School.
Liam made me these beautiful flowers in preschool.
He also made me a card
The other kids made cards, Cassidy made a painted heart pin.

They all got me three plants in a planter.
Steve celebrated the big 30 last weekend as well. He isn't much of a party person so we had some family over one night for cake and some friends over the night before.


Mothers day was a beautiful day and we headed out to the park so the kids could practise there soccer skills.




and a couple more from the past week....

This weekend we are heading up to the cabin at Lake Metigoshe with our small group and NO KIDS!! We are all very excited for the much needed break. The weather doesn't look too promising but I think we still will enjoy our relaxing time away. We also got the new trailer all ready and are hopeing to head out the following weekend.
Business has been a tad crazy so I am looking forward to a much needed break.

Happy Mothers Day!

Before I was a Mom, I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom, I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom, I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom, I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom, I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body..
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom, I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom .

I will warn you, this post has TONS of pictures! Life has been busy!! Soccer season started this week which means soccer games 4 nights a week. Yes, it is crazy but the kids are enjoying themselves. The weather has been beautiful as well. I am so glad we are enjoying comfortable warm weather. It is about time.
This is Cassidy's first year playing. She did great her first time and even scored a goal! She sure suprised me. I have yet to upload some pics of Aidan playing. He is on an older team this year that is more competitive and structured.

Cassidy is super proud of her pink shoes and socks!


Of course, here are some more pics of Liam. He actually gave me a few cute pics as I was testing out some new softboxes today. Although he has a distracted GAP logo on and a orange mustache, he still is pretty cute! Can't believe my baby will be 4 in a few weeks. Since my May is so busy, Liam won't be having a big party. We plan on taking him to build a bear and going out for supper to celebrate.






May is defiantly the start of a VERY busy season when it comes to my business. I am completely booked! It feels good to have steady business and I am very excited about how things have all progressed. I am hopeing to do some website revamping but have been so busy I haven't had a chance! I am also excited for wedding season to get underway.
