Needless to say, the working from home won't go very well until we have an office for Mark (can you see why!). Actually we tried to stay out of Mark's hair, and with Anderson being gone in the a.m. and naps in the p.m. - the boys didn't bother Mark much.... but still!

meet "Mater" - this one is mine...
meet "Dirt" or "Superman" (depends on the day) - this is Anderson's to nurture
Hopefully in several weeks I can post "part II" showing some green tomatoes!!!! I can't wait!!!

I can't believe this day has FINALLY come, but our house is SOLD!!!! It has been over a year, but as most of you know - when we 1st put it on the market we had no idea if we were coming or a going - we just knew that we had outgrown our precious home of 5 years - the home where we brought both of our newborn boys home to, the place where we had so many "firsts" with our precious sons. So many wonderful memories of Kempsville Greens Parkway - from early early mornings on our deck (along with the many golfers) or the late late nites watching fireworks from the same deck, the many birthday parties celebrated there, the evenings spent with friends and family around the dinner table, or on the sofa watching the Dawgs play. While we are soooooo grateful for this exciting news, I am sad for we will have to officially say 'goodbye' to this precious home where God blessed us abundantly!!!!
Barring any obstacles, we are scheduled to close on June 19th!!! Thanks to our enormous support network of friends & family who have offered so much love & support this past year!

So this is what Carter's Easter morning looked like - not quite the little man that we know & love - shortly after this picture he was asleep so we transferred him to the pack-n-play where he slept for 5+ hours (what a nap!). Poor little guy had a yucky stomach bug.

The boys & I traveled to Va Beach during Spring Break to visit friends and our place formerly known as "home". We had a great time picking right up where we left off, but the week went by way too fast! We stayed with the Maggiores again - it works really well for us - we get more play time and avoid messing up my 'on the market' home, plus the grown-ups can hang at nap & bed times!
My pictures are out of order and I certainly didn't capture all of our fun, but here are some pics... somehow I didn't manage a grown-up photo at all, and I didn't get any good pics of my boys with Jen's girls (ARGH!).
Anderson & Ryan have been dying to ride bikes together - here they all, quite 'matchy'. They had a blast racing back & forth!
We left VA at 5:30 Friday a.m. to head to Macon for Easter. I literally put the boys in the car in their PJs - here is me dangerously driving & taking a picture of sleeping Anderson, but I couldn't resist (actually, I was at a light!!!!)

So I've already lamented to a few about this "compliment" I received, but this week during our visit to Va Beach, we took our kids to the playplace at the mall (formerly known as the 'big hot dog'!) - when this little girl (maybe 2 1/2 years old), comes up to me with arms reached out wanting me to pick her up. Well, I'm no dummy - I'm not gonna pick up a strange child unless they've fallen or need help, so I just kinda smiled at her. Just then her nanny (I think) came up to retrieve the little girl - so I said to the little girl, "oh, I must look like someone she loves" - - and the nanny responded "YES, you look like her Grandmother!!!!!!!!" - - Can you BELIEVE that???? Ok, so I've never had a complex about looking older, but maybe I should!!!!!
