Beauty and the Beast

my mom treated the kids and i with tickets to see beauty and the beast, the broadway play.
and it was amazing.
my mom and i saw it when i was in high school in new york city.  and it was just as wonderful as we remembered it.
and it was so much fun to watch pierce and stella as they sat mesmerized.
thank you grandma for such a special afternoon.  we love you.

we enjoyed a fun, family easter at my parents.
the kids loved getting to hunt eggs and play with their cousins.
such sweet memories.
thankful for parents (and grandparents) who love jesus and share that love with us.
and thankful for all that easter means and represents in my life.

an attempt at easter pictures.

 after church on easter, we attempted pictures.
you know... the typical sibling pic in your easter outfit?
i know that my parents have one of alison and i each year.
all we wanted was a couple of pictures.
that isn't too much to ask for, right?
holy moly. 
i will let the pictures speak for themselves.
oh my.  everyone was in a mood by the time they were done.
needless to say, we did survive.
happy easter.

last soccer game of the season. and a party too.

we are definitely a soccer family.
 and i have totally embraced being a soccer mom. 
without the minivan. :)

pierce's last soccer game of the season was last weekend.
and i finally remembered to take my camera.
i love watching him play.  and grow was a player.
they can come such a long way.

i am thankful for soccer.
and all that it teaches pierce.
and the sweet friends he has made.

and here's to a little break to squeeze in a tee ball season.
