Enjoying time with my girls

I'm so thankful for this spring break with Peanut! Bean and I are soaking up this extra time with her at home and finding fun things to do around town together! It makes me realize just how much I miss her everyday while she's at school; but I'm grateful for all the amazing things she's learning day-by-day!

Spring Break trip to the Joslyn Art Museum

The girls and I had a very relaxing and enjoyable day today! We ran a few errands this morning, stopped by Barnes and Noble for the girls to get some Train Table play-time in, and then had a picnic lunch outside of Joslyn Art Museum before touring the art exhibits! Peanut and I went to Joslyn a while back with her Kindergarten class for a field trip and when she heard it was FREE Admission right now, she's been BEGGING us to go back! We took full advantage of an entire AFTERNOON to spend inside and out looking and and enjoying the different art pieces and sculptures!

The girls enjoying their Take2 find - Strawberry Shortcake's Cafe! They LOVE it!

Bean posed herself like this before we left the house, LOL!

Deciding which direction to head!

We LOVE the Chihuly Glass on display here!

One of Peanut's favorite pieces!

I really enjoyed our time together and the girls did absolutely amazing in the Museum and enjoyed all of the different types of art and sculpture we took in! We made some special memories today!

Ernie's SURPRISE 40th Birthday Open House

I wanted to surprise my love and throw him a "SURPRISE" 40th Birthday Party, and decided to make it more of an Open House drop-by-when-you-can event!  I sent out invites to family and friends near and far and asked those who weren't able to attend to shower him with LOVE and send him cards in the mail!

I started planning the party about a month in advance, but then LIFE happened and I took a trip to be in a dear friend's wedding, a family member was admitted to the hospital, I had to submit both my mom's and my items to Take2 for the Children's Consignment sale, I got sick and I hosted out of town family! So much of the party planning was placed "on hold"! It was a much simpler party than what I had hoped, but Ernie stated how much it honored and touched him for me to plan something like this and invite so many special people from his life to come and celebrate with him! I couldn't have DONE this party without the help of both sets of parents!  THANK YOU to both our Mom's and Dad's for EVERYTHING!!!! We LOVE YOU and can't thank you enough for ALL your help! A HUGE THANK YOU to our church for allowing us to host the party in our fellowship room as well! It was a success!

Thanks to Ernie's dad for capturing his entrance on video!

Some of the many awesome family and friends who stopped by

Ernie's mom made the cupcakes!  Thanks MOM!!!

Just some of the MANY awesome cards he's receiving from family and friends!

This isn't everyone that stopped by, but it was a wonderful JOY to see so many friends and family come out to help me Celebrate my LOVE!  Happy 40th Birthday Babe!!!  Thank you all for the amazing and thoughtful cards you continue sending his way! He has been very touched!!!
