My sister, the Paramedic!

My sister, the Paramedic!

I am THRILLED to announce that my darling sis, Alexe graduated from Paramedic School!! I have spoken on this once or twice before…but our family is pretty darn excited about it, so excuse me whilst I gush on the how proud I am of my little sister! After dealing with working, schooling, and doing clinicals all at once, she is finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. She will be using her new found skills as a Paramedic on an ambulance in Harrisonville, MO. Here’s a glimpse into her ceremony…

Max is TWO!

Max is TWO!


My crazy little Max man is TWO YEARS OLD! I can’t believe it. I’m sure all of you mommas and daddies out there know what I’m talking about when I say that I can’t imagine my life without him, but I still can’t grasp the fact that it has already been two years since we welcomed this crazy little kiddo into our family. He has given us a lot of exercise and even more laughs in these past two years, and we’re so excited to see how he grows…and when he’ll slow down!

In the midst of the Easter gatherings this weekend, we had a “Where the Wild Things Are” party for our little king of the Wild Things. He absolutely loves that book…of course adding his own spin when we read it, by vocalizing the “terrible roars”, so it was only appropriate that we celebrate his arrival to the terrible twos (hopefully, not!) in this way. The festivities of the day included pin the tail on the “Max” (from the book), and an Easter Egg hunt. So fun! Here’s a little sneaky peek into our fun day.










A huge thank you to all of our friends and family who cane out to celebrate two years of Max with us! He is such a blessing to us, and so are all of you!
