America Bound!

Hey blog friends! 

I will be missing in action for a bit while I travel to America for two short weeks.  Oliver and I will hop on a plane and land in Seattle on Thursday!  Hope you have a great 2 weeks and I'll be back after that with our last month and a half in Australia! 

There are so many exciting times coming up for our family.  Please stay tuned to see where we are going next.  Any guesses???  (The few of you that know...keep it quiet! :) )

Enjoy today!

Mom, Mum, Mother, Momma, Mommy...How ever you say it!

 Hey friends!  Happy Mother's Day to all the moms and moms to be!  I hope you day was made extra special by the people who love you the very most!  Mine sure was!  It started off with very special gifts from my sweet children and breakfast in bed made by none other than the Breakfast King!  Then the afternoon was spent meeting my friend's brand new baby!  There really is nothing quite like holding 7 lbs of baby love to make you appreciate Mother's Day so very much. 
 In the evening, Matt prepared an amazing dinner of chicken Marsala, egg noodles and steamed veggies. Don't forget the glass o' wine!  Finished with salted caramel brownies, every bit of them homemade!  They were even more amazing than they sound!
It was such a lovely day spent with beautiful people! 

To all the special ladies in my life: I am so grateful that you are there to mentor me and show me what it's like to be a good mom.  I am so lucky to have amazing role models!  Love you all!
Enjoy today!

Photo Fun

 Hey Friends!  How are you all doing?  It's Thursday here and this week has just flown by!  Have I ever told you that we have two cameras?  Well, we do and one of them gets neglected and I forget to add the pictures from it to the blog.  So, today is the day that I will share the photos from camera number two or "the little camera" as we affectionately call it.  :)  Photo number 1...Olli eating corn on the cob!  What a guy!  he skipped purees almost completely and moved on to "man food".
 Olli at the park.
 Olli with his kiddie friends at a birthday party.  Olli is front and center.
 Olli playing at Kid City, an indoor play area for kids.
 Destiny and Addi love Kid City so much that they are going to have their birthday party there this year.  It's going to be a disco party. Dancing, food, games, and fun are on the agenda!
Sliding and holding hands!  The best of sisters!

That's all for the little camera, but I'm so happy I got to share them on the blog! 

Enjoy today!

 Hey Friends!  Guess who is 9 months old?!?!  Our little boy, Olli!  He couldn't be bothered to smile for any pictures, but here he is!  Actually, he's doing quite well because in these pictures he had a UTI and we didn't even know it!
 He has finally decided to start crawling on all fours (he did a commando crawl for ages).  He pulls himself up and says a few different words.  His favorite word to say is "daddy"!  He loves shaking his head "no" too! 
 These pics are especially for my sister's husband, Uncle B!  If Matt can handle two, so can you!  My sister recently found out she is pregnant with twins!  There are exciting times ahead for our family!
This is Olli and his BFF Ezra!  Ezra was a bit sad at the moment the photo was taken, but cute nonetheless!
Enjoy today!

Movie on the Lawn

 Hey Friends!  A while back, when I was not feeling so great, Matt took the girls to see a very special movie on the Ambassador's lawn at the U.S. Embassy.  They showed the film BRAVE and the girls fell in love with it!
 They had to wait until it got very dark.  While they waited they enjoyed some Costco pizza.
 They had so much fun running around with friends too.  You can barely see Destiny running with her arms spread wide! 
What could be better than pizza and a movie with daddy?  Absolutely nothing!  They sure are lucky girls!

Enjoy today!
