It's me!! Thank you photo toaster for hours of fun!
**UPDATE: I made this post from my phone and the photos are horrible and cut off!  Boo to the new Blogger app!!

Look who made me a delicious dinner for Mother's Day? It was so good, my favorites: lasagna, roasted asparagus, salad and French bread. I am one lucky mom. I got to spend the afternoon with my mom. Great day!

Life is almost too busy around here sometimes I think.  I've skipped all of April here. The family is doing well.  Taylor got his low blue belt in Taekwondo, Hannah is doing so great at soccer we will all be sad to see the season end. Yesterday her team played a team that has been undefeated for 3 years and our girls beat them!!! Mike is super busy at school and work, so there is always a challenge to find balance.  The weather has been amazing and that usually leads to two things around here: wanting to get my patio pots planted and wanting to do something with our boring, shade-free backyard.  This is always a problem because there never seems to be resources to get the backyard of these days! I have lots of ideas, of course.  Less than a month left of school and summer will officially begin.

Thank goodness I have the iPhone to snap some pics here and there!

Amy joins us on many outings-here she is enjoying a Jimmy Johns sandwich.

Cinco De Mayo! Taylor apparently isn't too thrilled about the sombrero.

This guy outgrew his bike he's had for the last five years, so we went to REI and got him  a new one.  He LOVES it to say the least.

Hannah loves that Meggie.  We got to watch her while my Mom was out of town for 10 days.

Hannah's school had a fundraiser so I made buttermilk chocolate cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream frosting.  They were out of control good!
