I feel so blessed to have such incredible children. The things they say and do...they just fill my heart so much. I seriously think these are the best years of my life and everyday I wish it would go a little slower. Sure...there are hectic, crazy moments in there too, but really, I couldn't be happier doing anything else. I love watching my kids grow, teaching them things and even learning from them.

Garrett is so tenderhearted and sensitive. The other day after a very busy couple days of yard work, Damian came home late and I was just worn out. I fed the kids a quick dinner and hadn't done any housework all day-you know, one of those crazy days!

We had just got all the kids bathed and ready for bed when Garrett said he had to do something, went into our room and told us to stay out for a few minutes.
About 10 minutes later he lets us go in. He had made our bed for us, brought in 2 glasses of water and brought us a big container of leftover fettuccine alfredo for our dinner. He said he wanted us to have a nice dinner relaxing.

Oh my about melting his mommy's heart! I seriously feel like the luckiest mom on earth.

she didn't want me to take her photo

Little Bella is developing an attitude, lol!

I can't begin to tell you how hard it is to get a good photo of Bella looking anywhere near the camera. She sees that camera coming and goes into ignore-mommy mode. So,when I got this one of her while she was looking at an airplane yesterday, I was thrilled! I can see her beautiful eyes!

The boys were pretending to take each other's photos in front of this fleece when Belle decided to join the fun. Of course I had to get one of her.

green today

He has chameleon eyes. They change from blue to green depending on what he's wearing or what around him.

and his big blue eyes. You'll never believe what mischief this boy was heading up the other day. I guess one of his aunts had told him about this and he decided to try it out.

I had to get some work done so I turned on a movie for all three of them to watch (I know, not the greatest thing to do). So I'm cooking dinner and I hear giggling coming from the bathroom. Quiet giggles from them are NOT a good sign. So I run into the bathroom to see what's going on. And I find Chris and Bella standing there smearing Vaseline all over the toilet seat! Garrett's just standing behind them laughing because he knows better then to get too involved, lol! Christian said it was a joke so that when the next person sat down they would slip right off! OMG, I had to laugh even though I tried really hard not to. And to the aunt who told him to do this, I know who you are, lol!

The weather this Easter was crazy! We had flurries, gray skies and frigid temps on Easter Sunday so there were no great Easter pictures. I guess I can dress them all up again when the weather warms up, lol. And Bella was in a MOOD the entire day. The poor baby is getting 5 teeth and has a bad cold so she was just unhappy. Though seeing her Easter basket did cheer her up! Nothing like "minky" (her word for candy) to get her excited.

I did manage to get a cute shot of my handsome little men together. They were so good all day and didn't seem to mind that the weather was rotten. As long as they got to hunt for eggs (indoors), they were happy!

garrett in the field

You'll have to click on this one to see it at the right size.

I didn't pick up my camera today, so this is from earlier this week. I had a busy day of shopping, Drs appointments, house cleaning and playing with the kiddos. ;-)

Tomorrow we're off the the Children's Museum and then back home for dinner at our house with my siblings.
Have a wonderful night everyone!

caught!, originally uploaded by ~LeahP~.

I sent them out to the backyard to play and when I went out to check on them this is what I found giggling out there. Two very soaked and mud covered little boys. We live in a rural area so they decided to run into the cornfield next to our yard and have a good old time jumping in a monstrous puddle out there. Boys.
And of course being the good photographer mom that I am, I ran inside to grab my camera and snap a picture of them. :-)

i wanna big one like that!

my week in pictures

Nothing too exciting yet, but I snapped a few.

A storm that rolled through.

My weeping cherry tree is in bloom!

A cocoon that the boys found and are hoping to watch hatch. They check on it every day, lol.

Yesterday at my mother-in-laws house for an early Easter celebration. Everybody's just doing their own thing.

She's so hard to get a good picture of right now so I'm constantly having to invent games that get her to look at me. Playing peek-a-boo from behind the couch worked well today!

Eating a cracker in Daddy's arms (even though you can't see him here).
Nothing exciting, just had to make sure I posted one before the day was over!
