We finally had it! Micah has been paciless for a while now, but has had a major problem with pooping in the potty (TMI?) I won't go into detail or anything, but he made a BIG step 2 weeks ago, and has been doing a whole lot better with this. We had bribed him with almost everything known to mankind, and Chuck E Cheese's did the job. This evening we celebrated and had a No paci, Poo Poo in the Potty Pizza Party. We had fun. We have accomplished a lot this year and the Next step is School! :)
I was so happy! We chatted and spent about an hour together until it began to rain, but it was the best part of my day by far. Micah and Lucas played together and it made me sad again that they moved, because I'm sure that even though they're 18 months apart, Micah and Lucas probably would have been the best of friends.
I was sad to see them leave, but I know that I'll see them again, even if next time I have to go to Brazil....Now wouldn't that be nice?

We were SO hoping celebrate with a small get away this year, but weren't able to, maybe next year :) We plan on having a date night this weekend and I can't wait! Stacy has been working out of town and is gone Monday- Friday, so my week is spent counting down the days until he comes home again. Isn't it nice to have someone love you that much?
Tradition is that we all attend the parade, have lunch at Sonny's, and then spend the afternoon swimming at the Rent's. This year half of the family didn't even come to the parade, but most ended up meeting for lunch anyway. We still went to the Rent's, but the pool was SO Cold only the children were brave enough to enter. I Love the pool and can't wait to get in!

I am the mother of Micah. The Busiest Boy in town. He keeps me going all of the time, that's for sure. I think that if you ever have a problem falling asleep at night, just borrow Micah for the day, you'll sleep great after a day with him :) He is JUST like the Energizer Bunny, he keeps going and going. I Love Micah with all of my heart and don't know what I'd do without him. Yesterday he told me Happy Mothers Day numerous times throughout the day. Stacy cooked a wonderful breakfast for me while I, along with the sisters made lunch for our dear Mama. I had a pretty restful day and even got to enjoy a nap! I never ever get to take naps, but I have been SO tired lately. I just don't know what's wrong, other than the fact that I chase a little man all day :) For Mothers' Day all I asked for was Pine bark for our yard, I have yet to get that, but I did get a little wheelbarrow that Micah made me at The Home Depot workshop and a flower. I also got a Much needed memory card for my camera. Here's some pics from the day :)

We are not Mexican, but love any excuse for a celebration. We used to have shirts with the Mexican flag that we wore to celebrate this special occasion, but have finally gotten rid of them. We are not drinkers, but LOVE some good Mexican food, so we'll eat and celebrate with everyone else who has no idea why they're celebrating. At least we know why this day even exists!
This year Laura found some tickets on Craigslist for cheap, so I told her that we'd be more than happy to accompany them. We got there right before the gates opened and got to watch the opening acts. We even chatted with the captain of the Pirate ship. It's just such an interesting but fun place to go.
We watched several shows, but my favorite was the Barely Balanced Acrobatic Show. I laughed So hard. There was a little bit of adult humor, but that's probably what cracked me up the most!
I know in years past I have NEVER been impressed with the food that I've eaten there, but this year was SO different. I think that everyone enjoyed their food. Stacy ate "The King's Weenie" and got his favorite: a funnel cake. Laura and I both almost died from something called "The Death By Chocolate Brownie Sundae." All I have to say is, I probably won't be craving chocolate for a month after that!
