A New Tee and Chase's First Phils Game

I ordered a new Phils T for the game tomorrow. I've wanted a T from Birdland for a while, but never got around to ordering one. I have to say, I'm glad I finally did. I love it!! Check out their site for great Phils gear.
Tomorrow's game is Chase's first. I am so excited! I know he's going to love it. I told him this morning he is going to see Ryan Howard in real life - I may have been leading him on a little, but I find in unlikely that he will be disappointed.

Chase isn't really throwing up gang signs... :)
His party was a success! He had an awesome time! Details later.

Party Time!!

Chase's birthday party is Saturday at the park across the street from our house. We are so excited! Amber from Amber's Announcing You Etsy Shop designed the invitations, matching poster (above) and stickers for the gift bags. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all! My plan is to decorate in green, blue and orange - no brown since there is already so much brown in the pavilion where the party will be held. We are going to have a cup cake "bar" where the kids can make their own cupcakes and a candy/gift table! Oh, we also got a Monster Truck pinata! :)

Since I'm still blogger illiterate, here is the link to Amber's shop. I really need to learn how to make her name the link.

I'm Growing Out My Hair... But...

I sure do love Heidi's new cut.

He's 3!?!?!?

When did this happen? When did my little 8lb baby turn 3?! Craziness. The past three years have flown by. Where did the time go? 3 years ago today at 10:16 pm my life changed - my little man was born. It is the happiest day of my life. He is my everything. I love him more than words. He's my angel. Our miracle.

When we were in VA last weekend, my family threw a little party for him.

Daddy and I love you so much! We thank God everyday for giving you to us. You are our world. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!

So Much to Say...

I feel like I have so much to stay and don't know where to start. So, while I sort through my thoughts, I will leave you with a few photos of my man.

Ryan F. - These 2 are for you...

My boy turns 3 tomorrow so I made him this shirt to wear to school today. I know the pictures aren't that great - I'm sorry. Once we get our new camera I won't be able to stop taking photos. I can't wait!!

8 Years Ago... Where It All Began

Rob and I were married 8 years ago today in Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada! We were planning a large wedding, but decided Vegas was a better option because of it's affordability. So, four weeks after we were "engaged" we flew out with only his best friend and his girlfriend. I wanted to share some wedding pics, but couldn't find them lastnight in our flooded basement (another post all together) but I will try and eventually post them.

This is the chapel where we were married. It was right out of 1975 - wood paneling and all!
Looking back I sometimes wish we had a large wedding, but then I think about how much I love Rob and know that it isn't the wedding that matters, but the marriage.
Happy Anniversary Rob! I love you! Thank you for being such a wonderful husband and the best dad ever (that's what Chase told me the other night and I agree). Thank you for all you do for us and for loving me long after my prime. ;)

Happy Easter... Monday

Oops... I meant to post this weekend, but things got crazy!
Friday I was off so Chase and I made it to Good Friday service. It was really nice... with the exception of the Philly traffic on a Friday!
Yesterday was a very nice Easter Sunday! Church was awesome! I kept getting chills. We sang all of my favorite hymns and afterwards had a so, so breakfast at a new restaurant in town. After our naps, we headed over to Rob's sister's house to celebrate with his family.

When Chase saw the table he said "The bunny came..." very calm with no excitement at all. I asked him what was there and all he said was "candy"... Nothing about his monster truck, or his new Phils t or even the book he has been pestering me about for weeks. Eventually, he got excited...

The following pictures are proof that Chase is a descendant of a Redneck family. On my southern side, not Rob's southern New Jersey side.
Clean, happy and blowing bubbles with his cousins.
This is where it starts. No shoes.
No shoes... on a Barbie Quad.
At this point, I looked outside and saw him. I told my mother-in-law that he was "such a redneck"... She thought it was pretty funny knowing my family and all. ;)
No shoes... holding a Walmart bag. Enough said.

Hope you had a wonderful Easter celebrating the Risen King!

when I got home from work, Chase and I took a walk to the park across the street from our house. The park is one of the major advantages of living where we do. It's a National Monument so it's is very well maintained and clean. After a LONG, COLD winter, my boy was so excited to be outside. Thank God it's finally spring! I need some Vit D!

Look how happy he is!

We were racing and I wanted to get a picture of him running in the field. It's VERY blurry, but I kinda like it.

He is my sunshine.
Look at those eyes! I love his face.

Chase, we love you so much! Thank you for making everyday so special. You really are the best little boy anyone could ever ask for. I love you!
