"Leigh in REAL life..."

Can I just say that I have SURVIVED the month of MARCH! Jeff and I celebrated our 6 year anniversary - we had a yummy dinner at Carabas and then went to a movie. It really was a fun night and can't believe it has already been 6 years. Sarah's Birthday was a success too. All of the little kids that came seemed to have such a fun time and Sarah is still talking about it. That night when the party was over I literally could not walk because I was exhausted. The next big event was EASTER! Easter was fun! The kids help me put eggs together for the neighborhood egg hunt and they really enjoyed their visit from the bunny and going to church. Yesterday was Britten's birthday party at the Kangaroo Zoo. There were 18 kids there and I just showed up with the cake, ice cream, decorations and party favors. I'm really glad I had it somewhere the kids could just run and play! So, with that said, I survived but I don't think my house has... Here are some pictures of what my house looked like this morning! I know it is totally embarrassing but it's REAL LIFE right?? I have spent most of my energy this week getting ready for Britten's party and Jeff has had strep throat this week and so has not been the help he usually is. So, between all the party planning, the exhaustion of pregnancy and Jeff being sick this is what our house looks like. I did have a stay at home day to tidy our house back up! Jeff is on his way to Filmore right now to pick up our new little puppy and I am headed out with the girls for pedicures and dinner! Just what I need...

CAKE time!

At the beginning of the month Britten picked out some transformers to go on his cake. I think he carried the boxes around most of the month! He was excited when it was time to open them and put them on his cake! Now they are sitting on his shelf with the rest of his transformers!

Present time...

Don't you remember being a kid and having a birthday party?? I think the most exciting part is seeing all of the presents and knowing they are for you! Britten sure was excited about all of his presents and felt really special!

Kangaroo Zoo!

PLAY TIME!! The kids had so much fun running around playing!

Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday we had a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. It was very cold and Sarah wanted to go home before it even started!! Poor thing. She too is ready for warmer weather. But when they blew the whistle she was all about collecting eggies. Britten had fun looking for eggs with his little friend Addy. I think she is his new best bud!

A Poem for SARAH!

author unknown

In my daughter’s eyes, I am a hero,
I am strong and wise,
And I know no fear.
But the truth is plain to see
She was sent to rescue me,
I see who I wanna be, in my daughters eyes.

In my daughter’s eyes, everyone is equal,
Darkness turns to light,
And the world is at peace,
This miracle God gave to me,
Gives me strength when I am weak,
I find reason to believe, in my daughter’s eyes.

And when she wraps her hand around my finger,
Oh, it puts a smile in my heart.
Everything becomes a little clearer.
I realize what life is all about.
It’s hangin’ on when your heart has had enough;
It’s giving more when you feel like giving up,
I’ve seen the light/ it’s in my daughter’s eyes.

In my daughter’s eyes, I can see the future.
A reflection of who I am, and what will be.
And though she’ll grow and, some day leave
Maybe raise a family,
When I’m gone, I hope you’ll see,
How happy she made me,
For I’ll be there, in my daughter’s eyes.

Coming HOME!

Sarah!! We LOVE you!! you came home and our lives changed! Our family felt more complete!! You were such a good baby. And look at how you have grown! I love the bottom picture it is of you and Dr. Wold who delivered you safely into this world!

Our good friends Sean and Veronica have recently had 14 chocolate lab puppies. They have offered us the pick of the litter... I am not sure what to think about this. Anyway, they have sent us a few pictures of a little girl named Wynona. Let me know what you think?

Happy St. Patrick's DAY!

Happy St. Patty's DAY!! Britten and I made green scrambled eggs and milk this morning! It was so fun but I must admit I could not bring myself to eat green eggs. Maybe because I am prego??

Present and cake time!

Sarah got so many fun little presents! This was her first party and she was in a little shock that all of the presents were for her. I think she is ready for another party!

Calling all Princesses and Pirates, Sarah is turning 3!

Sarah wanted to have a Princess party this year and I was a little worried because most of our friends have little boys. So we decided to have a Princess and Pirate party! The kids got their faces painted, played pin the coin or crown on the treasure, collected candy from a pinata, went on a treasure hunt and ate cake and ice cream! About 12 kids came and they all seemed to have a great time! Thank you to my friends that stuck around to help!!
