Around the House...

It's been a busy last few weeks....
 My dear sweet Riley, left, decided 3 years ago to grow his hair long in anticipation for the kids cancer foundation shave that would occur at his school in 2011. Ethan, right (sporting his best game face), decided that he'd participate too.
I couldn't be more proud. 
Together they raised over 3 thousand dollars.


Post shave. The boys will also donate their hair to a foundation that makes wigs for children with cancer.
 Then this little man had a third birthday. (more on that later) How is it that babies grow up so quick?
 Lastly, my eldest boy, Connor, has had a busy week doing auditions for theatre school. He's pretty sure he kicked it. Waiting is never easy and I'll be relieved when we find out next week where he'll be going.
 So, needless to say, I'm spent and looking forward to an outing... something like this one, and the relaxation of doing nothing with my 5 fantastic little men for the long weekend. 
To all of my lovelies... thanks for reading. I appreciate you all more than I can say.
Wishing each and every one of you a splendid Easter! xoxo

That is so beautiful! You must be so proud. I just found you after over a year. (You once commented on my blog and I remembered seeing yours--but apparently I didn't click "follow," newbie that I was). I'll be following now and look forward to it :))

Happy Mother's Day! You are very blessed and all of your sons are so handsome. Maybe your oldest is looking at the NC School of the Arts in Winston Salem, where I live. It is a great school.
