My Easter Post

With the help of super high tech tools like a paper clip, our photo card was rescued from the computer slot where it was not-so-tenderly shoved and Camden will live to see his 3rd birthday. Without further ado, Easter pictures!

Camden was so excited about his first official Easter egg hunt. They gave out bags of candy at the beginning and he clung tightly to it. He didn't realize there was candy in the bag until much later, otherwise there wouldn't have been this picture.

Camden found one egg and was so proud to have it! The Easter egg hunt was rather lame, but he had fun and that's all that matters. Easton, as usual, slept through the entire thing.

We had so much fun decoarting eggs together. Cam had to count them all to make sure there really were 12 eggs. He also insisted each egg had a name.

Of course the boys got new clothes for church and I had to take a picture. Notice the look of terror on Easton's face. "Mom, you're going to let Camden hold me? Are you crazy?!?!" Yes my dear child, I am. May you live to tell the tale.

Finally Camden actually looked at the camera and smiled. Easton looks resigned to his fate of being held by big brother.

And one last picture of a smiling squishy. I love those cheeks and that smile! Chubby babies rock my world!

In this spot . . .

In this spot you should be seeing MLM (now a week and one day late), but you're not because I still haven't gotten around to it. I want to write a longer post and just haven't had time (doing fun stuff like decorating eggs and cookies with my kiddos over spring break). It will be up sometime this week. Thanks for being patient with me.

In this spot I was going to do an Easter post, showing lots of pics of my sons. But Camden, that dear, sweet, almost 3 year old boy, had some fun with the camera card and our laptop, so said laptop is currently at the computer repair shop where they can hopefully extract said camera card from the card slot on the computer (where Camden jammed it in sideways). The fun of toddlers!

No time

As you can see, I never quite got MLM up yesterday. I had really good intents. I even thought about the post last night as I laid in bed, not falling asleep. As much as I want to, I won't get it up today either or in the next few days. I figure many people did something with St. Patrick's Day (at least I hope), so I will post this week's topic (your greatest adventure) next week. If you have already completed it, post your link next week. If, like me, you haven't even started, you have another week to get it done.

I never knew how hard it would be to work full time and take care of two children. I love my life, but is a crazy hectic life. Between wearing the hats of wife, mother, and teacher, I also wear the hat of mentor teacher and department head at my school. Right now there are lots of deadlines looming in all these areas (taxes at home, ordering new textbooks, completing mentoring paper work, setting up school visits, etc), so this will probably be my one and only post for this week. Hopefully by Monday things will calm back down again and I will be back on track! Thanks for hanging in there with me!

My Life Monday - pictures

I assigned this topic really quick last week because it was the first thing I could think of that sounded fun. And I planned all week to take a really cool picture of some sort. But that never happened (surprise surprise). So I'll use this as an excuse to show off pictures of my boys!

This is Chef Camden. He loves to dress up. This cute hat and apron were made for him by a friend of ours. Whenever he "cooks" in his kitchen, he has to wear this.
Camden loves to line up things in what he calls "slides". For this one he took every single Magnetic in our house and lined them up in a huge snake around the living room. He was very proud of himself.

And this post wouldn't be complete without one picture of the squishy I call Easton. No story, just a really cute baby!

Next week's topic - share your greatest adventure. Whatever that may be. :) Leave a comment if you participated this week, as well as your link. Oh, and please either leave me some MLM ideas in the comments or email me some. I need more! We can also recycle old ones if you so wish. Thanks!

My Life Monday - 6 word life memoir

Today was busy at school, but at least I got it up before Monday ended! Today's topic is the 6 word life memoir described here. This was a hard one even for me! I'm still not satisfied with my answer, but it will do for now.

I first thought of posting "I am a child of God," but decided that was the easy way out. Then I thought of "Taking the road less traveled," but thought maybe that wasn't totally accurate. I really liked
Musical Mom's after I read it and wish I had thought of it first. This is what I finally came up with.

Divinely guided through life's thorny paths.

Not much, but I feel it really fits my life. I can't wait to see what others put.

For next week I haven't had much time to think of a topic, so I'll just throw something out - share a recent picture and the story behind it. Have fun and be creative! Be sure to leave your link below if you participated today!
