PJ day at Little Fishes

A couple of weeks ago, it was PJ day at school for Evan.  But Drew likes to be just like his big bro, so I obliged and let him wear his PJs too.  I love that Drew is trying to be a big boy, but not quite ready to give up my baby!  He is "almost" ready to be potty trained, and is talking about going potty, I just need to get my butt in gear and do it.  He already knows many of his numbers and letters, and knows all of his colors and some shapes!  All our reading has finally started to pay off!  I know, I know.  How did a PJ post go into braggin on Drew.  But I am a proud Mama!  So deal!

My Monkey

Drew is my little Monkey these days. He is a goof ball, and he always wants a ride on my hip.  Instead of saying "hold me" like he used to, he says "monkey, mama".  And that's how I know he wants me to hold him.

Ugbie's Hat

Here is Drew in "Ugbie's hat".  He loves his Uncle Kevin, and likes to wear his Hokie hat he gave us, every chance he gets!

Word from the wise

Do NOT push down the spinach in the blender in your morning smoothie with a plastic spoon unless you want lil bits on spoon in your "green lantern" smoothie. And btw..... Calling it a green lantern smoothie does not fool EVan. He is wise to my ways. Blah. Crunch crunch.... Mmmm... Plastic spoon!

Camping Out. Disney Style.

Last weekend Daddy and Evan went camping at Camp Wilderness, for Evan's buddy Bowen's 5th birthday. He had a BLAST!!!  And I have to say I really enjoyed my alone time with Drew. Evan loved it so much that he is already planning his 5th birthday there!


Went to a spray tan party the other day. It was delightful!  Wine, dessert, spray tans, and great gals!  What more can a tired, hungry, pale and thirsty Mama ask for?  Next time I will have to remember NOT to shower after my tan, after 3 glasses of wine. Because I forgot to really use soap I think.  Hence the uneven-ness.  Whatevs. I kinda like the Jersey Shore look. WPP.

Easter Portraits

I got an ADORABLE plaid bow tie for Drew to wear for his Easter pictures. He had a different opinion about it. Adorable wasn't one of the words he used. It was more like " I DON'T LIKE IT. I DON'T LIKE IT!!!!!!!" So this was his back up option. I think I got a few cute ones!  It's funny. I remember when Evan was 2 years old, thinking, Wow. I am kind of scared of him.  I didn't want to set him off.  It was kind of like walking on egg shells at times.  And I thought the same exact thought the other day about Drew. Lovely, huh!

My new fave...

My new favorite picture of DD.  It's just so Drew. Head tilt, the almost bashful expression, big toothy grin. That is so Drew, the sweet Drew I take care of every day, but almost impossible to catch on camera.

Missing My Far

Sad face.  That's what my ole mug has got right now because I am missing my girl dog something fierce. Today more then other days because it was one year ago today that we sent her to Doggy Heaven.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her. And if you think I am nuts and don't understand the sweet, unconditional love of a pup, then that makes me more sad. Because it's an amazing and beautiful thing. If it were up to me, I'd be a crazy dog lady with 9 or 10 rescue dogs running around the house and sleeping in the bed with me, and they would all have some kind of physical or mental condition that I would feel the need to treat, I am sure. Anyways.... miss you Farley. It just ain't the same roun' here without you.

You can probably get your 4 year old to wear a bow tie too, if you bribe him with your iphone and let him listen to your itunes!!! LOVE SPRING and all of the picture opportunities it brings along with it!

Claire's Rainbow Party Pictures

Here are some pics I took at Claire's Rainbow Bash. Her Mama is so creative and she thought of everything!  I love the rainbow cupcakes she made, and those fruit skewers were DELICIOUS and so beautiful. But nothing topped Claire's homemade rainbow tutu, NOTHING! I just wish I could have lined up all the guests in rainbow order according to their shirt color and made a friendship rainbow! But all the guests were under 6, so that would have been a challenge, perhaps.
