And we are back ...

Ok, I know it's been a while. But I am happy to say that we are all healthy again. Things have been a bit crazy, so this will be a long update!

I'll start with the oldest stuff first. We are Mets fans in this house. I am/was a Red Sox fan, but it's too confusing to raise the kids as a combination of both, so they will be raised Mets fans. Really, it's much easier, given that we are so much closer to NY than Boston. Either way though, our children will be raised to hate the yankees. In the kids Easter baskets I had a Mets outfit for each of them. They are super cute. My husband is very excited about his little Mets fans. So here you go with some cute pics!! Many more pics if you click on either one!


So what else? I wasn't allowed to write about this on the blog until now, but we had a super fun 40th birthday party for my brother-in-law last weekend. My sister threw the whole thing, it was at this super fun brewery in NYC, and it was just a blast. My sister wanted to do a presentation for him, kind of a "This is your life" type of thing. We worked on it NON-STOP for like a month prior to the party! I must say, it was a super great success. My sister really knows how to throw a party! It had a whole casino thing going on, so there were craps tables, a roulette table, and a few poker tables. She had "funny money" made up with Anthony's face on it... which was hysterical. And look how cool this stand-up was that she had made! It really looks just like him!

What else? Jake got hurt at daycare! Ugh. It was so sucky. I was driving to pick them up from daycare on Thursday and my cell phone rang. It was the kids daycare. The director told me that Jake was trying to walk, and he tripped and fell onto a shelf that had toys on it, and he hit his face on the corner of the shelf. He got a huge cut to the side of his eye, and it was bleeding really bad. She said that they had stopped the bleeding, but it was bad enough that I should probably bring him to the pedi to see if he needed stitches. Ugh! I was so sad for him! Lucky for me, when I got to daycare, he was just laying in the area where they change diapers, and he was all smiling and happy to see me. They cleaned him up and put a band-aid on, and he seemed to be in good spirits. We brought him to the pedi that night, and thankfully he didn't need stitches. They actually glued the cut shut. How crazy is that?? Here is my bubba now.

So finally, we took the kids to the park yesterday to enjoy the nice weather and have some fun on the swings with Aunt Chrissy and Uncle Ant. The kids really enjoyed the swings! But they weren't HUGE fans of the grass. Hailey didn't like the feel of it and she would cry if she crawled or walked into it. She's such a prima donna.

And now I am ready for bed. I hate when the weekend is over. Ugh.
