We had a fun little St. Patrick's day party tonight, and I took a few pictures to capture our green dinner tradition. My parents sent some cute costumes and stuff in the March box (have I mentioned how amazingly thoughtful they are?!), so thanks to them, we really had a blast together tonight...

What a fun party!! On the way home, we talked about how she really is a princess. She seemed surprised, but I explained that she's a true princess because she's a daughter of a King. We also talked about how pretty dresses, makeup and shoes are fun, but the most important attribute a princess can acquire is charity. It was really nice to spend some one-on-one time with my sweet little princess today.

Benny was surprised to see his baby brother in a swimming suit! haha!
Yes, there he is. Now before you judge my judgement... hear me out... I forgot to pack his swimming trunks, but I had an extra swimsuit for Charity.. And I certainly wasn't about to pack up all the kids again after 8 hours of driving, and go buy a new one for him. Maybe if it were my first or second kid, I would have hesitated... but I'm learning you just gotta do what you gotta do sometimes!
Then we went to the COSI museum in Columbus on Saturday. It was such an amazing place. It's voted the #1 science museum in the country by Parents magazine, and it didn't disappoint. However, what WAS disappointing was the line to get in!! We waited for about an hour just to buy our tickets. But we just made the best of it. My mom is my best friend (other than my hubby), so there is no one else I would rather burn an hour with.
My mother is the most loving, forgiving, and kind-hearted person. I'm so grateful my kids get to have her in their lives, and that we got to spend some time with her.

Haha!! ;) My older brother Joey has wanted a pet pig for as long as I can remember, so this Christmas, his girlfriend Tessa got one for him. She is the CUTEST, but she's probably as high maintenance as a newborn... or maybe a toddler, since she throws tantrums when she doesn't get her way. She's constantly making noises, she eats everything (including Ben's homework once), and she is SO smart! They've taught her all sorts of hilarious tricks. And I think from the messes, to the potty-training, and the talking back, they're getting a glimpse of what life will be like as a parent! Here a few more pictures of sweet Belldandy...
So the first day of my trip, I felt so free, and thrilled to finally get a break. But by the second day, I really started missing my hubby and kids, and couldn't wait to get back home. So when I walked in the door, I got tackled my my sweeties, and then Celeste gave me this note. I am one lucky mommy.
