Spring is finally looking like it might stick around for a little while.  Which make me super excited.  I am getting ready to plan my small gardens and wishing we had more space for some larger scale plantings.

Highlight of the past weekend:

I FINALLY got to see my new nephew!!!!  He is six weeks old and I'm the last aunt to see him :(.  We had the flu the week/weekend they were visiting, so we never got over to see the new little man.  I really cried about this!  We visited with my sister and brother-in-law this weekend.  My husband and the boys went to watch the Indiana High School Basketball State Finals in Indianapolis, while we girls had a 'girl' day.  Nail painting and singing to Frozen and all. :)  The boys were all so excited that their team and alma mater, Marquette Catholic High School, won in overtime.   It was fun seeing how much fun the boys had with daddy.

 If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.

What I keep telling myself every, single time someone mentions I have my hands full when I am shopping with my kids.  I do have my hands full.  But I wouldn't trade any single moment of it.  I live for the chaos.

From my Camera:

Ruth & nephew | AddyLou CreatesSuch a sweet little man!!!  So happy I was finally able to meet him!  Please excuse the crazy hair - I got ready for church in under 20 minutes and the super tired looking eyes  - the kids didn't sleep this weekend while visiting.

Have a great week!!
