Feelin' the Love!

This week is Administrative Proffesional's Week!

I always forget how much I love working at a school during this week.  There are 5 of us in our school and we have been VERY spoiled all week!!

Lots of gift cards for coffee and food, treats, chocolate and small gifts. 

One of our favorite gifts was this beautiful poster made by the students in our Autism classroom.  Just the fact that they were willing to get their hands dirty and create this piece of art for us, means more than you can know.  We just cherish it!!!

Today our boss gave me some cash to be able to take all of the Secretaries out for lunch.  Someone else is taking on our duties for the time we are gone.  So nice!  We'll see if they can handle it while we are all gone!  Ha!!

Easter 2013

We had a wonderful Easter this year!  Drew was home with us all weekend and it was beautiful here in Mid-Mo.  We dyed eggs, went to a great Easter Service, had an Easter egg hunt and ate a wonderful meal.  I love having all of this time with my little family.  So blessed!

Someone didn't like the smell of the dye. :)

St. Louis Trip

A few weeks ago we took a day and toured around St. Louis.  It was so much fun and we are looking forward to exploring the city more since we live so close to it now!  :)

Our little fashionista, ready for her day of fun!
 The Arch was really cool to see!

Entrance to the Zoo.  We tried to get in.  It was packed!  Took almost an hour just to make it to the entrance and once we were there, no parking anywhere.  We will save that for another day! 

 We had lunch at a Root Beer Brewery.  It was awesome!  You could see them making it while you ate.  Such a fun experience for all of us!  

We couldn't be in the same town as a Build-A-Bear and not stop.  This one is actually the first one ever in business.  It was a fun time and Jules loves her new friend!  :)

Pretty fun day.  Looking forward to going back and exploring some more! 

Iowa Visit

Here are some pics from our trip to Iowa in February.  I know these are a couple months late, but life has been crazy.

We had a great weekend and it was SO nice to be able to see Mia and to snuggle with her.  We are planning a trip to Branson to see them in July.  Can't wait for more time with my precious niece!! :)

I love, love, love her!!

 This picture is one of my faves.  Mia looks JUST like Lauren as a baby! :)

Jules and Bodhi!  Such a beautiful baby!

Picture of when they first saw each other.  I couldn't get it to load at the top of this post.  They love each other!!!

We were so lucky to be able to see Morgan while we were there.  He came through town the first night.  We were all excited to see him.  It had been over a year since we last saw him!!
