Mother's Day

This year, I was delighted to be back home in Louisiana so I could host a Mother's Day Brunch. I got the idea from pinterest last year and it finally came to pass. I got the printables from Amanda's Parties to Go  My parents opened up their house to us and let me plan away. I thought it would be easier to have everyone at mom's house instead of everyone driving down to see us. My aunts were there, and my sister-in-law, and grandmother. We all had a fabulous time!

Still playing catch up with the holidays...I actually have fast internet for a few days so I'm taking advantage of uploading pictures quickly. Theo was away with work this Easter so it was just me and the kids. I ended up volunteering to teach Sunday School since we couldn't spend Easter as a family anyway. Our church had a lunch and Easter egg hunt after the service which was a lot of fun. It has been quite a change going from a church of several THOUSAND people to one with 50 people tops :) But I am trusting God is using me there.

Catching Up: Christmas 2012

Wow, I have been really far behind in the blog arena. I blame it partially on spilling hot coffee on my laptop back in February and not having one for a few weeks. When I finally did get a new one, I couldn't install my camera software on it to upload pictures....until today! So, I am playing catch-up now. I plan on blogging more regularly with Theo's upcoming "trip" as this will be a good way for him to see photos of the kids since he is very anti-facebook!
Christmas this year was nice. We had a low key Christmas with just the five of us. We had celebrated Christmas with my family a few days prior but I haven't figured out where those pictures are these are from our little family on Christmas morning. I love seeing how excited the kids are. We are so blessed to be able to provide for our kids (even though it does seem a bit overboard!). We have lots of extended family who love our kids as well and love to do for them.

 And because Theo is really just a kid at heart....
