Happy April everyone, a little late but still much awaited and excited for! I'm sharing a random post today since my PL isn't quite done yet. I am trying to fit some pictures in the little pockets and it's not working. So rethinking my plan for them and will post later on. Hope everyone had a lovely Easter, ours was pretty nice despite the cold temps and gray sky. I will be hopfully sharing a picture only post with you on Friday, it's been awhile since I've done that. So today it will be words only.

sam had his first soccer practice last night, bundled in winter coat/gloves/hat and still cold but he LOVED it and his coach has been wanting him on his team, YEA!  Looking forward to another soccer season.

Rich and I celebrated our anniversary on Monday, YEA!! I LOVE LOVE THIS MAN MORE THEN WORDS CAN SAY!! I'm thankful each day for all he does and has done for us. We went out for a quick Subway dinner that night. I'm planning on doing a post about how we met and our story sometime later this month.

It's been cold here again, haven't even made it to the track again this week, go away cold windy weather!

We are on spring break and enjoying the relaxed days and no schedules and packing lunches!

The kids have finished most of their make up work for when we will be gone, Sam had tons to do but did it with a happy attitude.

LOVE LOVE that Kristin was home for Easter this year, it's been a long time since the last one. So nice to share this holiday. A day filled with Church and two family gatherings was just what we needed. We had a nice talk about her new gorgeous bible and GOD. She is starting this journey too just as I am and so it was nice to talk to her about this.

Happy that Kristin found a side job that she loves already!!

Little purple blooms growing my the front door, YEA!!! SPRING!!

Shopping for new shorts/bathing suits/sunscreen for our Disney trip

Excited doesn't express how we are feeling about our Disney trip, seriously CAN'T WAIT!!

I will be meeting my blog friend Bonita for the first time, it's going to be so awesome to finally talk to her face to face. She is living out her dream on the beach and I can't wait to see her new home and walk the beach with her. It's going to be such a lovely day with her, so happy she lives nearby Disney so we can make this meeting happen. Thank you Bonita and Greg for having us over!!

We have a month of birthdays in our family this month. Need to get busy thinking of gifts and making cards.

Looking forward to my funny shows that are on tonight, Wednesday nights are my favorite for tv

Enjoying these last months of Sam in elementary, can't believe he will be in middle school in the fall. Time is going so fast, he is my baby you know. Not ready for him to grow up just yet.

The sky has been blue and filled with big white clouds the last 2 days!! LOVE LOVE THIS!!

We/the kids are hooked on their new Family Fued app on their ipods. I've always loved that game show.

Looking forward to our Taylor Swift concert when we get back from Disney!! It will be the first concert for the girls, excited to share this with them. Poor Sam didn't get to come and he really likes her new RED CD and sings them pretty well.

To my friend Nancy who reads my blog, while I'm gone just read my April 2012 posts. Hope this will keep you entertained and not miss my posting to much. I'm thankful each day for you and the wonderful friend you are for me. So happy that you love reading my blog and it makes you happy. Will miss you while we are gone, take care and hope the weather warms so you can enjoy the outdoors more. Just relax and enjoy your new freedom of retirement. HUGS!

Dear friends please keep Lucky in your thoughts/prayers for us. This is the only sad/hard part of us going to Disney, is that we will miss Lucky sooooo very much. He's been so happy having the kids home this week and it will break our hearts even more when we leave. I know my sister Annie will take good care of him but he will miss us greatly too. It will be our first time of all of us leaving him so please keep him in your thoughts. Thanks so much!!

Thank you Annie for helping out while we are gone. Enjoy the best dog ever and my big backyard sky for me. I will miss my walks everyday out there no matter the weather so take a picture of it and send it to me. THANKS!!! HUGS!!

Sorry for the long list, kinda got carried away. Thanks for reading and for being the best readers a girl could ask for. Take care and enjoy your week. Come back Friday to enjoy some photos! HUGS!!
