Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree

"I looked out the window and what did I see?

Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!

Spring has brought me such a nice surprise!

Popcorn popping right before my eyes!

I could take an armful and make a treat.

A popcorn ball that would smell so sweat!

It wasn't really so, but it seemed to me!

Popcorn popping on the apricot tree!"

This is my FAVORITE tree! It's a Magnolia tree and I had never seen one until I moved out here to CT and I think they're just amazing!

Hiking with Magic!

Today Magic and I went on a hike with Connor, Christina, and Roz. It was soooo much fun! Magic was so excited to be out and about and the kids were so excited that she was there too! Well Connor wanted to hold Magic's leash but Magic is WAY too strong and so I held the leash and Connor held the middle of it for almost all of the hike.

I really want to see what this place looks like in the Summer, it will be sooooo green!

There were lots of little streams and a few even went over the path so we had to jump over them!

Roz and her kiddos :)

Connor and Christina enjoying nature!

Our little hiker with her hiking stick!

Sooo much fun! We need to do it again in a few weeks when there are leaves!

Tonight I went and saw Memphis! It was amazing!

I went and saw it with my ex-employer Roz. She had told me when I left the job as a going away gift we would go see a Broadway together, well seven months later we finally got around to seeing our Broadway! I'm so grateful to have her for a friend and I really hope that we'll do this again soon!

We had great seats. We were in the balcony but we were in front row so it was perfect! Here's the view I had of the stage.

Memphis was amazing! Click here to learn more about the show, I would highly recommend it!

Passover Eggs! haha!

Today I did Easter Eggs with the boys. We had a lot of fun because really the boys have never done this. They're Jewish and when we mentioned to their dad that we would be doing this he said they had to make some passover eggs too since today is the first day of Passover. So we drew some Star of Davids on some of them to make them Jewish... But really Easter Eggs have nothing to do with Jesus so I had no problem doing this with them!

The boys said that Casey was amazing at this!

So fun! Can't wait until next year!

Birthday Party!

Man! 24 never looked sooooo good!

Tonight I had a birthday party with a bunch of my friends.

Here I am with my cake while everyone sang Happy Birthday to me

Dishing out the cake, I hear it was good, I wouldn't know though because I haven't had sugar in 4 weeks! Am I crazy? Of course and that's what makes life so fun!

Casey hanging out watching people play Guitar Hero

Everyond had fun rockin' out on Guitar Hero!

I had fun playing pool with different people. Being a girl it usually surprises people that I can actually play pool, I like that! I really liked that I was playing against two boys and they had to team up against me because I was doing too well... trust me most of it was luck!

Sometimes I wonder how sane my friends are, here's Ryan running around with a FedEx package on his head... oh no...

Today we went and played with the little boy I used to babysit Luke. Luke is only 2 days older than Kaitlynn so it's fun to see how different they are. Last year they played together too, click here to see the pictures!

They both were very hesitant at first but once Luke's mom left he was ready to play! But Kaitlynn wasn't! Kaitlynn needed coaxing to be nice and play!

Really we only got this picture because we told Kaitlynn she would get a snack if she did it :)

Cute Kids!

I like this picture because we're singing if you're happy and you know it and Kaitlynn loves keeping her fingers on her face because "her face will surely show it" and Luke is clapping because "he's happy and he knows it!" Love this song with babies!

Both of them love reading books!

It was so fun having those two together and Kaitlynn sure enjoyed being with someone her own age and having age appropriate toys for once!

Today was the last full day that Rebecca and Kaitlynn are here! So sad! Here are all of our pictures!

So we put Kaitlynn down for a nap and we actually hid and fell asleep ourselves, but Kaitlynn took a looooong time to fall asleep and she kept doing stuff but we couldn't see her so we couldn't tell what she was doing, well when she woke up this is what she looked like! How did she do that? And wow does that look uncomfortable!

Today after church we went inside and hung out with the boys. It was so cute because C was in the living room reading so Kaitlynn got a book and went and read with him.

The family I work for is Jewish and today they went and learned how to make Challah. Here's one that C made:

And here's what the big ones looked like:

Yesterday Becca bought an "I <3 NY" Shirt for Kaitlynn so here we are in our matching shirts!

I have a bunch of picture magnets on my refrigerator that Kaitlynn kept reorganizing for me, well this time she was just walking around with them pretending like she was on the phone, so cute!

And she found my huge coca-cola bank...hopefully in a year it will be too heavy for her to pick up!

Haha I love this picture! I guess it's her way of saying "STOP TAKING PICTURES OF ME ALL THE TIME!"

When Kaitlynn was getting ready for bed I guess she needed to read a story to her dolly

Oh I'm going to miss this silly girl!
