Happy Monday!

Man am I tired! It was such a busy weekend, but alot of fun. My parents flew in on Thursday morning for the weekend and they left yesterday. We had to cram a TON of stuff into just 3 days. They flew in Thursday at 7:30 a.m. and took us out for breakfast. We took the kids to Chuck E Cheese for a birthday party for Malachi - a little late, but he wanted to celebrate with Oma and Opa. Did I tell you how much I LOOOOOOVE Chuck E Cheese(can you hear the sarcasm? ) Oh well, once a year for the kids is okay.

Friday we spent the day at the West Edmonton Mall Waterpark. Malachi loved the wave pool. Kiana was a little more wary and wasn't all that excited about being there. We couldn't get Malachi out of the water. Kiana was content to sit on her chair and watch us all play.

My parents spoiled Chris and I as well. They gave us money so that we could go out for dinner and my mom also took me shopping for some spring clothes. All in all, a pretty exciting weekend. But I am sooooo tired - I need sleep to recover from it.

Poor Kiana tho - she always has such a hard time when they leave - so we have lots of tears this week because we miss Oma and Opa so much!

So, this month is Autism month. Go over to Technique Tuesday and buy your autism stamps and support the cause.
Well, I hope you all have a wonderful week - got a couple of projects on the go and get my house back to normal now that my folks are gone. And today is the perfect day for it because its cold and snowing. UGH - I wish that spring would finally come.

On that note, I would love to know three things that you look forward to in spring - what do you love about spring? What can you NOT wait for?!

Here are 3 things I LOVE about spring:

1. Blooming flowers
2. The smell of the first cut grass
3. The sounds of birds chirping thru my open window as I am just waking up.

Ciao for now!

you should be tired Mona ... LOL ...looks like a lot of fun though.
I get the being away from the grandparents thing too. It's hard for the kids... and sometimes the parents too:(
How great that you and Chris got to get out!!
My 3 favorite thins about Spring would have to be, in no particular order: flowers blooming, the smell of cut grass and sitting in the backyard by the fire pit.
Have a great week Mona.

Sounds like a very busy time but certainly a lot of time! I know what it's like to have your parents live so far away. I feel bad that my kids don't get to see their grandparents often - they all sure miss each other. But, we just have to be sure that the time we do spend together is extra special! Just like you guys did! Glad everyone had fun!
