Hard to believe it is Easter time again. Jenna has been on Easter Vacation since Thursday and will not return to school until Monday, March 31. Since she was off from school, I decided to bring her in to work with me on Thursday. She had loads of fun hanging out with me all day. We then decided to go see Grandma Gladys and Mike at their offices. Too bad she was asleep the entire visit for both Gladys and Mike. I must have worked her too hard at my job. At 5pm when we left Mike's office she woke up and demanded to go to the large park by his job. I think she is finally catching Spring Fever and wants to be outdoors!
Friday we headed into Staten Island to the Children's Museum with Jen and Madison. It is so nice to go to a museum where the girls can actually touch things. They had a blast playing and checking out the different exhibits. We even got them to take a baking class.
Saturday, the weather finally turned warm and we participated in the Bayridge Easter Egg Hunt. The girls had a lot of fun gathering up their eggs and receiving their Easter prize. Afterwards they hung out at the park enjoying the nice weather.
Easter Sunday, Jenna woke up to her Easter Basket from the Easter Bunny. She was so excited that he left her something. We went to church and then over to Grandma Gladys' house for Easter Dinner. We had a great time seeing everyone.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.

Luke's First Birthday

I can't believe that Luke was born a year ago already! Time has flown right by and he is no longer a baby. Jenna had a great time playing with Luke, Vanessa, Sara and Ryan. She was so excited to see her Aunt Shel. Luke looked like he had a great time and even grabbed a nap before his cake.
Happy Birthday Lukie!

Me and my big girl.

Easter Bunny Weekend

Saturday St Anselms hosted an Easter Bunny Breakfast for the kids. Jenna had a blast meeting the Easter Bunny, checking out the animals and doing the arts and crafts. We enjoyed breakfast with Jen, Mark and Madison and also Sharon, Joe and Dylan. Jenna and Madison were very excited to play with some of the kids from her class. Jenna cannot wait until Sunday when the Easter Bunny comes to visit our house.

First weekend in March

It's hard to believe that it is March already! Time just keeps flying by. This past weekend Mike and I spent some time with our friends Meredith and Jimmy at their new home. Besides seeing their beautiful home, Michele and Rich brought Luke. He has gotten so big and I can't believe he will be 1 on March 14. If you are wondering where Jenna was, she spent the day at Grandma Teresa's house. She had a fun day playing with Grandma, Uncle Jason, Kristin and of course Murphy.
Sunday the weather was ok, so I took Jenna out for a ride on her scooter. She has gotten very good at riding it. I can't wait for the weather to warm up a little more so we can ride down to the park.
