Boy oh Boy...

I  never thought I would be a mother of boys. I thought for sure the hand I would be dealt would include at least one daughter who would be twice the drama queen as I was growing up. I envisioned myself braiding hair, buying Barbies, having tea parties and playing dress-up in frilly dresses with rainbow colored eyeshadow and bright pink nail polish. Then my boys were born. Instead of tea parties, I get wrestling matches, baseball instead of Barbies, and dress up means storm trooper helmets, guns and light sabers. Today alone I filled a bucket full of worms, made a gigantic jumping pit out of pillows, lost a sword fight (twice), read and reread a Pittsburgh Steeler's book, taught the boys how to make spit wads and shoot them out of straws (that will come back to bite me) and pitched a mean game of baseball. All in a days work! Love it...

Here are some photos from today.

Love & Light,


I wish it was as cute for me to have a belly like this!

Sam. My friend's THIRD son! Such a cutie pie.

Cole & Nolan with their buddies, Jack and Charlie.

Lewis Ginter. This is a house of sticks, trees and vines. It is AMAZING! The talent of the guy who designed and built it is unreal!
