So yesterday was Mother's Day. My husband surprised me with a collage of pictures that he created on the computer. He even put it in a shadow box with a few of Addie/Sophie's baby items. So cute! We had a fun day with family.

When the day began to wind down, Chadwick and I settled in to watch a girlie movie: P.S.,I Love you. He surprised me by renting it for us. I remember seeing previews for it and really wanting to see it. The movie itself was a little slow, but I really liked it. I wouldn't go out and buy it or anything, but it was a good movie to watch to wind up the day. I won't say too much about it, in case you want to see it. I will say, however that it is a good reminder to Enjoy Life to it's Fullest. Some days it is easy to do what you need to do to "get by." My goal every day is to not do that, but to make connections with friends/neighbors etc. daily, to use the creativity God has given me daily and to ENJOY the task of being a stay at home mom DAILY and to remember that my girls are growing fast....In a few short years (3 1/2 yrs.) Addie will be off to Kindergarten. That seems like a long ways off, but in reality it isn't. Addie and Sophie will never be this age again. I want to do everything I can to relish in it! I do LOVE my "job!"

We watched that movie this weekend. I do not know if it was the movie or my terrible PMS but I seriously cried my eyes out from the start to the finish. Jason was laughing at me the whole time. I could not stop crying. At the end of the movie I even hid under my blanket and let out a momentary sob. Perhaps it was the PMS. It made me want to go back to Ireland, that is for sure! Jason spent the rest of the evening talking in an Irish accent and he even did a little "river dancing". Seriously.
The kids are growing fast. Time is passing for us too isn't it!? Remeber just moments ago we were in college, futures ahead of us....and now we are officially "late twenties!".
Enjoy this day.

ps...I love you! :)

Decent movie. Not amazing, but it was worth renting. It almost put icing on the "worst case scenario." Anywho, I definitely miss seeing my beautiful nieces. It is a blessing to have siblings at different stages in their lives than me. Much to learn / look forward to. I hope you are doing well and enjoying the sunshine [when you get it :)]
