First...no super cute pictures this week. I forgot my camera on Mother's Day, and neither one of my adorable children have been smiling for the camera. They sure do ham it up when the camera is off. Carter is even laughing now. It's so cute. There is a little squeak mixed in with the laughing.
So, Happy Belated Mother's Day to you all. We had a wonderful day. When I woke up, Tucker gave me my Mother's Day presents. Tucker and Carter gave me a trucker's cap, and a "I love Mom" mug. Jeff had already given me a beautiful patio furniture set. I cannot wait to set it up. We started the day off with early service at church. Carter managed to stay awake, eat a bottle (rather loudly), cry, and soil himself and me along with him. Other than that, it was a great service. Then we took a trip over to the cemetery so that I could be with all 4 of my children on Mother's Day. We took what we thought was a really good picture. But upon further investigation, Tucker was making a face like the devil. I just couldn't post it. We then headed to the Holiday Inn for a wonderful Mother's Day Brunch. The food and company were great. After brunch we went shopping. And who doesn't like shopping. The rest of the day was mine. I went on a rampage and declared war on the house. I was putting away winter clothes and getting out summer clothes. I organized all of Tucker's old baby clothes in order by size and dug in on garage sale stuff again.
Speaking of...I am having a garage sale in a couple of weeks. It is truly amazing how much stuff one can accumulate in just a few short years. I spend at least 1-2 hours a day going through our attic, and I still haven't put a dent in it. Which leads me to one of my great things coming up for me. I am purchasing a Nikon D40. For those who are not in the know, it is only the best camera out there. I have already started looking up different photography techniques and zoom lens'. I am very excited, and it is motivating me to get rid of as much stuff as I can, so I can treat myself to this camera. Be prepared for my pictures to start improving in a few weeks.

Another great thing coming up in our lives, is a trip to Virginia in the beginning of June for my brother's high school graduation. Yes, high school. We are going down a week early to spend the week at my grandparents river cottage. I grew up there every weekend since I was born. I cannot wait. We are going to have a great time. Maybe we will even teach Tucker how to ski. Well, why not? I learned when I was four. We'll see!

I can't wait for you to get the camera! I think I'll let you be the guinea pig first. Then maybe we can talk Marc into it!
