They're heeeeeeeerrreee.....

I knew it was a possibility...I hoped it wouldn't happen.  That they wouldn't come.  But they did.  They are here. 

Curls.

After her bath last night, we were playing...and there they were. 










































I have faith that she can pull them off a LOT better than I could.  Here's hoping! ;)

Monster Weekend! ;)

WOW!  What a weekend!!!!

It all started with a VERY special surprise for the boys...MONSTER JAM!!!!!!!!

GRAAAAVE DIGGGEERRRRRRRR!

























Then the ladies did a little shopping...

























That evening, Mick and I went out to dinner to celebrate his birthday!  Catonsville Gourmet...yummmmm.  We especially liked that you can bring your own wine.  Mickey chose something from one of our favorite wineries in Sonoma, Chateau St. Jean.  :)

























On Sunday, we spent a lovely day at Nanmom and Po's to celebrate on Mickey's actual birthday.  Michael and I spent some time at the neighborhood park.








Some of our weekend was spent birdwatching.  We are now using the iPad to identify the species of birds we are feeding!  :)

This and that...here and there...:)

Come onnnnnn SPRING!  We are so ready over here...sick of getting sick, want to go out and play, ready to feel warmth again!  We have been doing our best to lure spring out of hiding.  :)


We spend lots of time birdwatching.  The littles and I LOVE it. 



















Luckily, we have had several mild days recently!  We play outside every day...and have even ventured over to our favorite place, the Howard County Conservancy.  :)

chickens...

We even found a few signs of spring...



















Having a little fun!


















Ry got a little tired...she skipped her nap that day.  ;)


















We also did some indoor planting!  I have been wanting to do terrariums with the kiddos for a while.  This week, we did it!

Little touches for each kiddo...a pig and a monster truck ;)




















And sometimes, we just walk the runway for a little bit of fun.  ;)

Woohoo! Project Life Tuesday!!!



Oooo...I have been a busy lady!  Not much time to blog this week.  Photography, illnesses, and quick trip to Atlantic City with my pals have kept me away!  BUT, I did have time to work on my Project Life!  I chose to focus mostly on Valentine's Day.  And really enjoyed it!


On the left, I used various size page protectors to save all of our Valentines. :)  





















The Right side is my Valentine's Day page.  :)  I used some of our crafts and stamps to make this page.




















I also included some cute snapshots and artwork from the week.  :)



















All together now!



















Today, I am linking up in the usual spots.  ;)  HERE and here:

We found joy just about everywhere this morning!  We had a playdate with our good friend and had a grand ol time!

I can't get enough of this one...

Seriously, one of the sweetest little guys you will ever meet.

And one of those little things that brings be sooo much joy it's silly!  I recently moved one of my birdfeeders in front of my kitchen windows so I could actually see the birds.  I just loooove watching them enjoy the food we give them!
