The Month of March

March this year just seemed to fly by. Between guests, a quick trip to Maui, and three kids keeping me oh my toes, it seemed that April came all too soon! I have a months worth of pictures to post, not just mine, but also Grandma Lucy's as well (who visited for two weeks at the beginning of the month)….There are over 200 pictures combined haha. 

The first two weeks this month Grandma Lucy was here to visit (she arrived the day before Grandma Deb left) and she stayed with the older two kids while Matt and I went to Maui for a friends wedding (we took Penny, since I'm her food source haha). Erin and Dan were here as well before and after the Maui trip (it was Erin's sister Kate who got married). While in Maui I was able to meet up with some family friends I haven't seen in about 19 years, the Kittner's. After returning from Maui, Kim and her youngest daughter Hailie came to visit for a few days so they could see Lucy before she went back home. 

I loved having everyone here; it was fun and also very helpful as well. But after 7 weeks of non-stop guests, it was finally time for me to be with the kids by myself during the day. It hasn't been too bad, thankfully, since Penny still sleeps a lot. The older ones keep me busy by breaking up fights over toys, cleaning up messes, and just the usual of making sure they aren't getting into trouble. 

It was also my birthday this month and I am now 32yrs old. Yikes, when did THAT happen?? haha!!

Below are pictures taken from our camera, then I will post pictures from Grandma Lucy's camera. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the pictures! 

 She's getting so big!

 I thought she finished her dinner… apparently it was just all on her lap. 

He had to be good for 5 day to earn his Ukulele.. it took almost 2 weeks but he finally did it!

 Having a fit… "why?" you ask...

 Because her brother is sitting on the chair with her. 

 Wearing the froggy jammies that used to be Isaac's, then Rose's, and now hers. 

All three wearing the froggy jammies. 
Isaac was 10wks old. 
Rose was 4-5wks old. 
Penny was 8wks old. 

 Holding hands, so sweet!

He just loves his baby sister
