Week in Pics

I have been facing days that have been quite challenging.   
My heart is comforted as I think of those who have been in my corner.
I am so THANKFUL for your texts, calls, PMs, smiles and encouragement.
You have made all the difference.

I am focusing on the silver linings, blessings and the joys...
they far out number those trying moments.

Week in Pics

We had some full days this week. 
Full days that guaranteed falling asleep quickly.  
Our days were filled with moments that make your heart swell.
Days filled with: dancing, tumbling, shopping, talking, baking, singing, celebrating, learning, crying, sharing, cleaning, reading, growing, loving, playing, praying,
and living creatively moments.

Beautiful messy days; the kind of days that we live for...

A look back at the week in pics:
 I spot a bunny in the yard!
 Isabella and & Michael played for hours outside.
She snapped this one of Michael.
 And this one of herself.
She loves taking pictures!
 Michael getting a warm hug from his Great Grand Aunt.
Can you feel the love?
 Life can be messy, huh?
 Had so much fun celebrating our four  year old!
Candy Rainbow project for Isabella...

 Blessed with rain followed by sunny days perfect for outdoor play.

Bedtime called and Michael was found under our bed...
he went out quickly!
 With the temperatures rising we went outside for painting.
Joseph had an especially grand time.

 Look at these beauties...What a wonderful surprise!
 A quiet moment before church.
St. Anthony's beauty and memories flood my heart and soul.

Fill your week with JOY.

Celebrating Michael's 4th Birthday

We celebrated Michael's birthday.
Our celebration was intimate.
 (perfect for a mid week birthday)
Fun was had with cupcakes at school.
 Later we had dinner at Lazy Dog with the family and Vukojevich grandparents.  
And for the sweet finish, we celebrated with gifts and cake with the whole family. 

Turning FOUR is SUPER!
 I don't want to gush on and on about our Michael, but I will say,
this kid has a mega watt smile that brings me joy.
He also has a curious innocent spirit that I adore!
Singing Happy Birthday
Wish anticipation
Well done!
 Thank you to those who called, sent cards and gave gifts.
 Your  love melts me! (Really it does warm me over)
Godparents called to sing Happy Birthday.  Can ya see the phone in he pic?

The celebration of being a BIG four year old will continue later this month when we visit 
The Magic Kingdom of Disneyland
That ought to be SUPER!
PS  I have taken notice that I MUST pass the camera as I rarely appear in pics.

Academy Awards; Oscars 2014

This year The Academy Award Show was phenomenal. 
 I was struck by the talent, nominations and spot on acceptance speeches. 
 A classy representation of Hollywood's elite on display kept me tuned in until the very last moment! Standouts for best dressed included:  Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawerence, Amy Adams and 
Bradley Cooper.

 A stunning couple and the best acceptance speech of the evening by Matthew Mc Conaughey
"Alright, alright, alright!"
Pink's performance of Over the Rainbow was incredible.
Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler moved the audience and performer to tears.  
A moment!
 These folks missed their marks in my eyes.

 I throughly enjoyed the celebration of film and those who bring story telling to the BIG screen.
This post is a wrap!
