Teagan, in all of her sweetness!

It's a shame, really.... Teagan just will not let me do anything to her hair. She looks sooo cute when she has pretties in her hair too. Here was a rare occurance of when she let me put pony tails in her hair. They lasted just long enough to show Greg. I love this outfit too, I told her she looked like she was ready to play tennis!

Here's Teagan, splashing in the gutter. I can totally remember doing that when I was a kid, the way the wet concrete smells and everything!

It's hard to get a candid photo of Teagan, if she see's the camera, she wants to see the picture (ahhhh, digital!), OR Declan is hamming it up for the camera.

Well, I hope everyone has a nice Easter, I'll post pictures!

Happy Birthday to ME!!!

Well...... I am now officially OLD. I could tell right away when I woke up this morning. My back was stiff and my voice was froggy. Great. I'll probably find 25 new gray hairs too..... I'll post more tomorrow, for now, I'm tired.... getting old does that to ya.

On this day last year....

This is what our backyard looked like!

And today....

I know it's been foreva since I've posted to the blog. 19 days to be exact. I'll give a brief synopsis of the last 19 days.... a peek into my world, if you will....

I went to a 'Mixer' at a friend's house, and the next day went to a scrapbook crop at Scrapbook Station. I met several people from Scrapjazz. It was fun to meet people I've chatted with for the last 2 1/2 yrs in real life!

Maren had some virus that gave her a temperature, measuring 102 for a few days. The other kids were fine, just the baby was sick.

We've gone to play at our friends Luke and Benjamin's house a couple of times.

We had my girlfriends over with their kiddos, and a husband. It was a good reason to clean the house, although if you looked at it today, you'd never know.

Maren has really gotten into eating solids, in fact, she is quite the little chowhoundress. Yesterday, I pureed spaghetti and she ate it like it was going out of style.

I managed to get out of the house to get a pedicure on Sunday, and came home to paint Teagan's toes too. I'll take a picture after she gets up from her nap, and post it later.

We've been to visit the Easter Bunny at the mall. It was Declan's idea, but when we were leaving, he asked me if it was a man in the bunny suit. I told him it was, that they just don't make bunny's that big - thank goodness!

We're spoiled by this weather, and we've been taking advantage of being outside as much as possible. In fact, I may go out and plant my flowers this afternoon (before they die...).

And last, but not least, I turn 35 this Friday.
