Where the heck have I been??

Oh yeah... i've been creating:

I've been watching this cutie grow (and grow! he's getting so big, isn't he?? I can't believe he's already 4 1/2 months... sniff, sniff):

I've been watching these three get into some serious trouble together ;-) (I can't get over how old noah looks in this photo! and what a beefcake Lucas looks like lol):
I've been having fun with my fam (that's my parents and my bro):
And seeing lots and lots of my beautiful mama:
And, of course, I was ringing in a new year with these little ones:
It's been busy here, but life is good. Lucas came down sick for the first time a couple of days ago, but he seems to be on the mend, thankfully. I am gearing up to go back to work in a few weeks. Although I really enjoy my job, i'm definitely bumming about having to leave the little guy. I feel blessed to only work part-time, so I know i'll still get to spend a lot of time with him, but I know it will still be a transition period for all of us!

So, I have to share this story (and for those of you who are my Facebook friends, I apologize if you already read it!):

The kids and I were talking about Martin Luther King at dinner the other night. Chloe excitedly announced that she had a book about MLK and left to go get it. Knowing that she has typical 4 year old girly books, I had no clue what she was referring to. She returned a minute later and proudly held up a Cinderella book. Enter our dumbfounded faces lol. Seeing our confusion, she opened it to a particular page and said, "See?! It's Cinderella and the man you were talking about - the king!!"

Oh. My. Goodness. I just love the things that come out of children's mouths :-)

Well, my friends, off to go play with my gorgeous January AMM kit while the babe is sleeping (for now!). xoxo
