We had a very blessed Christmas and I hope you did, too!
Happy New Year! Was it everything you hoped for? How are those resolutions coming? I didn’t make any. I never do. I like to keep my standards low thus minimizing my self loathing throughout the rest of the year. But that’s just me…
This January was marked by celebrating the retirement of my dear Mother in Law after 43 years of nursing. We decided to throw her a little retirement bash and I was in charge of ordering the cake…how fabulous is this??
I became an aunt…again! This little bundle of cuteness blessed us with his presence on February 23rd. Almost a full week late. My babies had the common decency to be born 3 weeks and 2 weeks early, respectively and to weigh in under 8 pounds so I couldn’t even imagine what my poor sister was going through when this beastly (practically 9 pound!) monstrosity decided to take his sweet time to join the world. Good thing Mr. T is devastatingly handsome. And, incidentally, as a child of the 80’s, I’m going to have to come up with another nickname besides Mr. T. for him. I can’t say that without picturing his sweet little baby face shouting “I pity the fool!” and sporting a Mohawk. Hmmm…
Happy Birthday, Miss A! My princess turned 4 years old in March! We had a girls only Princess Tea Party for her at a charming little tea shop downtown. All of the guests were required to wear a fancy hat. I love her little “superior” face in this photo!
Happy Easter!! We celebrated at my mom’s house, and thankfully, the Easter Bunny was able to find us. He again rose to the challenge of providing peanut free Easter treats for Mr. Peanut Allergy…not an easy task! I’ve heard he likes to use this website to load up on fabulous options. Check it out!
Happy Mother’s Day! I had a simply lovely Mother’s Day this year. I spent almost the whole day not having to mother my children. Isn’t that what Mother’s Day is all about?? My sister-in-law and I spent most of the day at a spa and then rejoined our families for a late afternoon champagne brunch. Fabulous! Mother’s Day is just not Mother’s Day in my opinion if I don’t get to spend it childless, well-groomed, and slightly drunk. Kidding. (Kind of).
So, there you have it…that’s what I’ve been up to (more or less) since Thanksgiving. I hope to never leave you for so long again…I really have missed Filling Up My Cup and have written many posts in my head. I can’t wait to try to get some of them out of there and out into the blogosphere… Let’s have a fabulous summer together, shall we?
