A few years ago we tried baseball. It was fun but Matthew didn't love it so that was the end of that. However, we seem to have our own version of the game. Our version involves plastic cups.
Here is Mathew a few years ago after he had created the game.
Joshua recreated it himself this week. Look how proud he is.
Ready, aim, fire! Something so satisfying about whacking those old cups!

Of course I needed a new Spring wreath. I was watching Studio 5 a few weeks ago. They had this fun idea so my friend Mandi and I got to work while the kids were at school one day. We used swim noodles from the dollar store for the forms, one of my new favorite tricks. Then we wrapped strips of fabric around and glued them in place. It is colorful and bright and fun, just what I am looking for in Spring!

M is for the many cookies she bakes
O is for her open arms
T is for the time she sacrifices
H is for the hugs she gives
E is for our everlasting family
R is for her radiant smile
A poem for me! Now let's not forget the I said to her "Hey Brittany I would love a poem for Mother's Day". But she did it and I love it. In full disclosure the above picture was taken by me for the Grandmothers but I am still keeping it for me cause they must love me too-after all they suffered through taking the picture! So I guess the lesson I have learned is that I am in charge of teaching these kids everything. Including how to handle Mother's Day and this year we all got it right. So now the day is almost done and I am so grateful for this day. So grateful that I get to be a mom to these particular kids. They are great, their dad is great and I am so lucky!

I think they are racing this guy.
It was a lot of fun to hang out with these guys. I hope they are all friends for a really long time!
