Proud Wifey!

This deserves a post of its own.  Aaron was just offered the Activities Director position for Forest Lake High School.  I was waiting to share the news with everyone, so that Aaron could get the word out but he is so humble and taking too long! Now press releases have gone out, so I am excited to share the news! Here is a link to one of the articles: The Forest Lake Times Article

That man deserves this promotion. He has worked his tail off over the past couple of years balancing work, coaching, summer hockey camp, completing his admin licensure, and of course raising his family.  He never complains and has the best attitude.  He is a natural fit for this role, and I couldn't be more proud of him!

Congrats Hubby!

Easter Fun!

It is mid-night and I am up grading, so I thought I needed to take a break (aka procrastinate) and do a quick update.

Easter was a wonderful family day.  Holidays are a blast now with a 2 1/2 year old.  Evie gets so darn excited and even laid out carrots for the Easter Bunny with her daddy the night before.  What wasn't cute was her waking up at 2 am wondering if the Bunny came.

If you know my Ev, she does not like to wear dresses.  Well Nana Kari bought her the cutest dress, but we almost didn't get it on her.  When we were getting her dressed in the morning we first put on white tights.  She was bewildered and asked us, "What is this? Pants with socks on them?!?" dear daughter.  Why yes, they are pants with socks on them. 

She put on her dress and she looked adorable.  Aaron and I at the same time just said, "Evie, you look so beautiful!"  Well, she didn't want to hear it.  She exclaimed in a raised little girls voice, "You guyzzzz, I NOT beautiful.  I Evie Mae Forsythe (sounds more like four-fife)!"  It was hilarious.  I wish we had it on video.

The good news was Nora & Ev were excellent at church.  Nora just zoned out on the ceiling fans and fell asleep.  Evie was singing along.  The children had the opportunity to go to the front of the church with the Pastor.  Aaron attempted to bring up Evie, but she said, "No!  No way!"  Ha.  We tried.

Here are some pictures from our day!

Life Lately

There has been quite a bit that changed since my last active post over a year ago.  Aaron and I are busy parents to 2 little girls now!  

Evelyn Mae is 2 1/2 and still as sweet and sassy as can be. We also welcomed Ms. Eleanor Anne into the world on January 28, 2014.  She is quiet, content, and oh so lovable! It amazes me how different the two girls personalities are from each other.  Nora also resembles her daddy quite a bit!  I still giggle when I think of Aaron having 2 little girls.  Oh, and don't you worry about Evie.  She is loving her little sis up!

I just returned back to work from maternity leave.  As you well understand, it is tough. It is never easy to return to the workforce but we are blessed to have an amazing daycare provider and assistant that we love dearly.  It makes leaving #2 an easier transition versus how I felt when I left #1.
Here are some photo's of my little ladies!

I'm Back!

More to come, but I am excited to be back in the blogging world!  It's time for me to make it a top priority so that I can look back at it and also share it with my girls. 

Chat soon!
