Where have I been?

It's been a crazy week!! So much going on...
We had a playdate on Tuesday, and made cookies.... I also realized that Matty's hair was VERY long and needed to be tamed.

So... we took him for his very FIRST haircut!

We spent some time with Daddy home, this week, because he had some legal issues to take care of.... (nothing big, just a speeding ticket in a small town... never fight those, btw... you will lose, even if you weren't really speeding!)


We had the cousins over, for Nana's (my mom) Birthday! Happy B-day mom!


Why did I even try to get a group shot?

Carli turns one, this week. Do you believe it? She's larger than Matty; it's insane how fast they grow!

AND, look... LOOK who is in this photo! ASHLEY! :) We stole her from college (literally... and surprised my mom! It was so much fun!!) , this weekend. It was an amazing visit! :) I miss her already. Spring break can't come soon enough!



and my best shot of the week... This is Matty, at Cookie Cutters, before his haircut. I love the reflection in the metal!

A busy week indeed. I love hearing about your family. There's obviously so much love there. And how cute is Matty with his long hair??

Brittany you made my Birthday ROCK!!
Thank you for updating your blog.
I love reading about our family too.
LOL!! We are truly a very blessed family! I loved hearing all the kids singing in the car on our way back to college with Ashley! I miss her already too...Love you Britt!

Hey Brittany! With the meatloaf we had baked potato and we were supposed to have a salad but it didn't work out.
Oh and I'll be in the Target aisle next to the Pilot pens!!! :)

Well, you have been busy as usual! What great shots of all the kids together, too. Those are wonderful to have to look back on when they are all older. Happy birthday to your mom!

Your little man looks so grown up with his haircut. I love that last shot too.

Awww! Girl, Matty looks ADORABLE before AND after his 1st hair cut!!! :)) Too, too cute!!!

Btw, just have to ask which Cookie Cutters you go too? We go to the one in Dublin! Maybe we will run into you sooner rather than later!!! lol!!! :)) That'd be cool!!!

Definitely got a lot going on! That was so nice of you to go get your sister. I bet your mom loved that!

Hayley said...

What a wonderful shot! I have to admit, I am jealous of your ability to have your son's hair cut. My toddler wouldn't dream of it (as you can see on my blog). When we go to the salon, my stylist runs after him and kneels down beside him as he throws pennies into an indoor fountain. She gets about three to four clips and he is done.

You guys have been busy!!!

I've been MIA, too. Love the boys hair cuts. Harrison got one too, wait until you see it!
