I have never met two kids more into their "special blankies" than these two. Their Gran made them each a blanket with silk around the edges when they were born. When they have their blankies, thumbs automatically go into mouths and all crying ceases. The blankies were in the hallway this morning. When I came around the corner they were both laying on the rug relaxing. I'm ashamed to say that I finally got rid of my special blankie when I got married (and I've finally quit sucking my thumb too :)

Mother's Day

There is nothing better than spending the day with my family. Oliver kept saying, "Happy Mother's Day" throughout the day. We celebrated Mother's Day, Alex's birthday (tomorrow), and my dad's birthday day (Wednesday)all in one big sha-bang.
My mom got me a beautiful plant. She put pictures of the kids in it and wrote some really nice notes. I'm posting a picture because I thought it was cute and creative, plus it meant so much to me.

Alex and I returned last night from a trip to Destin, Florida with seven other couples. It was a great time, and the weather was beautiful. Here are a couple pictures from the trip. It was a much needed break, and we are happy to be back with our kids.
