My Day (or so I was told)

My kids were so cute today. I just had to make them reenact this song. :) They are carrying in a new purse for me filled with sweets and some new books to read! Such a thoughtful gift. Too bad I will be exchanging the purse since I wasn't in need of a piece of carry-on luggage. I would prefer something that doesn't present the danger of me losing a kid inside of it. haha. But it's the thought...

And they even cooperated for a picture with their mommy. What angels. Do I look like a statue here or is it my imagination?

Happy Mother's Day to all my friends and family. Hope you each had a wonderful, pampered day!

Congraduations Gradulate!!!

I forgot my camera for my own husband's graduation. What a great wife I am! Luckily my brother and sis-in-law brought theirs, but I can't figure out any way to get the pics from shutterfly to my blog. There MUST be a way, but I am not smart enough to do it.
If you care to see pictures, you can look at them at

Graduations are, for the most part, boring to the point of tears (especially when you are 3 or 5).
However, maybe because I feel like I have been waiting for this day impatiently for the past 10 years, Nathan's ceremony was insanely festive and thrilling and stirring and inspiring...for the first 15 minutes. The bagpipes started playing and the faculty walked in, followed by the graduates. I sat up in my chair with anticipation and held the camera at attention- completely forgetting the fact that Nathan's last name starts with a W. Of course he was one of the last people through the entry, so we had lost a little of our steam by the time he made an appearance. Still, we managed to last through the whole thing and snap a few cute pictures and it's OVER!!!!! I mean, he still has his trip to China, but in my mind, he is a gradute and I will finally have a husband. Until he finds a job.

Congrats Nathan. I am SOOO proud of you for sticking with it and getting your master's and still taking care of your family along the way. Pretty impressive, son.
