Peter Pan Jr.

Seamus and Grace have had a busy few months, preparing for the upcoming Drama Club production of Peter Pan Jr.!

Grace was Lyria, one of Tinkerbell’s fairies.


Seamus was Hop, a Lost Boy.


The kids worked so hard and put on a wonderful production!

Happy 8th Birthday, Grace!

My Gracie girl recently celebrated her 8th birthday!  We made some very special plans, which included a trip to the American Girl Store and Cafe!
Grace's friend Lily was also celebrating her birthday, so she joined us for the fun!  The girls were treated like princesses, and a wonderful time was had by all!

We also had a family party with a special cake that Grace designed and Nanny baked for her!
Our little girl is growing up so fast!  Happy Birthday Grace, you bless our lives in so many ways!  We hope all your wishes come true!

December Catch-Up

December was fun and crazy and flew by!  Here’s some things we were up to!

We celebrated our 10th annual Mommy and Me cookie exchange party!


We went to see A Christmas Carol at a local college!


I got to help out in Grace’s classroom and they had a very special visitor!


We got some amazing snow and even a snow day from school!


We made a gingerbread masterpiece!


Our Sacred Heart School Christmas concert was beautiful!  The living nativity and special visit from Santa is always my favorite part!

Thankful for a Crazy Thanksgiving

Ok…so I am way behind on posting!  Life has been busy, so I’ll do my best to catch up!

Our Thanksgiving this year was a bit different than usual!

I had committed to running the Turkey Trot 10K this year, instead of the usual 5K, so that was a bit nerve-wracking for me!  But the race went great and I finished in a decent time for my first 10K!


The kids typically run the kids’ one-mile race, but just as we were ready to head out the door, Seamus got sick!  Luckily it was a fluke thing and he wasn’t truly ill, but Devon stayed home with them and unfortunately they missed the race this year.  We’ll try again next year!

We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner, but this year we ate early and quickly, since we needed to be in the car by 3pm to drive to Philadelphia.  My mom and I were headed to the Mid-Atlantic Oireachtas, an Irish dance competition that Grace was participating in!

She had a ton of fun dancing and hanging with her friends.  It was a crazy weekend!


I was so proud of her for all her hard work and beautiful dancing!

We also had a fun visit in Philly with Jenn and Simon Greene!  We walked all over the city in the cold and had a blast!


So it was not our typical relaxed Thanksgiving weekend, filled with food, Black Friday shopping, Christmas decorating and more food.  But we had a great time!  I am so thankful for all the wonderful blessings in my life!

Happy Halloween 2014!

I was so excited when the kids decided to coordinate Halloween costumes again this year!  They all decided they wanted to be characters from their most recent favorite movie, The Lego Movie!


Here’s Emmet!


With “Lego hands!”


My sassy Wyldstyle!


And the cutest Bad Cop I’ve ever seen!


Happy Halloween from Emmet, Wyldstyle and Bad Cop!

Liam is 4!

My littlest love Liam is now 4!  I can't believe what a big boy he is now. We celebrated with a small family party and he was just thrilled about his cupcakes and gifts.

He is such a silly little man!  He loves school so much.  He wants to do everything "by myself" and he LOVES playing with his big brother and Sister.

Happy Birthday Liam! We love you so much!
