We spent the day hanging out with Blake while we waited for the boys to get out of school and for my sister to return from Boston! Blake and Cyrus really enjoy one another's company, so the day flew by! I just loved, loved that Dude the dog was laying in some pretty awesome light, too!

Today my sister celebrated her 30th birthday! Her husband planned a night away in Boston, and grabbed some tickets for the bruins game! Cyrus and I spent the day and evening with their 3 boys! I had a blast spending time with my nephews and Cyrus thoroughly enjoyed his time with his cousins! I know they're only an hour and half away, but its a struggle to get together, I wish they lived down the road so they could grow up together.

I can never take just one photo! Sorry about that! I was stumped with what I was going to do for today. Then I remembered I was surprised with these and had to show the world what a lucky woman I am! Not sure what I did to deserve such a great guy! :o)

Eighty nine days and still going strong even though some days I feel like giving up!

Last week Cyrus was playing with his motorcycles in the sunniest part of our house and I fell in love with the shadows. He did it again today, so I asked if I could give his motorcycle a photo shoot. He hesitated but let me, he had to set it up his way first then I could have my turn! Oh three year olds!

Well, hello Monday! Nobody really likes you! You probably already knew that though, I bet you hear it a lot!

Monday's are hard! I miss Jay a lot, especially after weekends where he has to work! We don't ever get enough time together! Cyrus is usually really cranky, and off our schedule and we have to start all over again! Today was different though, he was mellow, very cooperative and actually ASKED to have me take his picture! He's actually been asking me for days to take pictures of him with HIS cat! He loves being the "big brother" to his animals, and his cat really tolerates him quite well! He licks him, nuzzles him and is okay with being squeezed a little too hard. Cyrus refers to Max as my cat, and well Max doesn't tolerate his antics one bit, and will scratch and chomp down on him with out one bit of hesitation! Needless to say he loves Grey to pieces. I granted his request and captured them in their sweetness together. Cyrus is also on a kick of smelling good so he uses Daddy's cologne, I just had to capture it because I NEVER want to forget it! Plus it made my Monday that much better, I have the scent of Jay flowing through the house and its makes me smile and anxiously await his arrival home! Thanks buddy, Mommy needed that today!

Sunday, family fun day! Since I was feeling a bit under the weather this morning, Jay went to visit family with Cyrus, while I rested for a little bit! He came and dropped Cyrus off so he could work for an hour! Then we spent some time resting, cause Cyrus and I are both now battling colds. This has been a rough winter for us, we haven't gotten sick like this ever!

Jay really wanted to go out for a walk and show me a nest in the marsh we live next to (he really, really wanted it to be my picture for the day, how cute is that?!). We bundled up and headed out to the conservation land that surrounds our house. How lucky are we?! We had a blast and the fresh air was so rejuvenating!

Sorry for the picture overload today!

We had a great Saturday. Here are a few of my favorites from the day!

The photo below was technically taken last night while I was working on getting my blog post published. Just wanted to show how this Mom gets her editing done with a three year old! ;o)

Tess brought me a crate of spaghetti squash earlier in the week and I've been dying to photograph them. I keep saying I'll do it today and then never do, she suggested I do it yesterday but like I said I just didn't have it in me to photograph another thing. Today was busy, which was good, but I hadn't a clue what I was going to do for the blog today......then it hit me.....just photograph the damn squash already. When they dropped this off, I warned her that she may not get her crate back. ;o)

Late again, what else is new with me?

I know you've all seen my handsome guy working this week, sorry, but you get to see it again! We had the crane here to take out some pines, a dead beech, and a hemlock down in our front yard.

I was hesitant at first, thinking how much privacy we'd lose but he talked me into and now I can't wait for the hardwood saplings to flourish!

I'm incredibly lucky, and blessed to have a man who works SO hard for his family and provides us with everything we need and most of our wants as well! (Every time I say I want something for my ridiculously expensive hobby, he finds a way to make it happen!! Although I have yet to get the camera bag I've been drooling over, maybe soon! Hint Hint, honey!) I can't show him enough appreciation for being able to be a stay at home Mom for the last almost FOUR years! YIKES, side track but holy crap we're going to have a FOUR year old in April. Time really does fly, no joking! I can't wait for the rest of our lives together, it will be a blast! I love this man with my whole heart and then some!

I had intentions of blogging a different photo for the day, but exhaustion hit me and I was all set with finding something to photograph. This blog is supposed to be our life, and well tree removal was our our life today! ;o)

I was chatting with Tess this morning about how much I wanted to buy a pomegranate for Cyrus to try but was too cheap in case he didn't like it! I know they are not that expensive but we have to live a little more frugally in the winter months! So she surprised him with one and some other goodies. It was thoughtful and we really appreciated it, and he loved it. So now I know I can buy them and I won't be wasting any money. Thanks for the snack and photo prop of the day, Tess! ;o)

She hopped on the 365 train this year, you can see her blog here. Go check it out, support her, leave her some love and let her know I sent you! ;o)

I took a few photos through out the day because I just wasn't sure what I was in the mood for sharing!

So you get a couple today. One- my flowers, I really need a macro! Two- Daddy brought the crane home from work, and if you have a little boy you know how excited mine got when he saw it getting backed into the drive way he just had to go outside and climb on it. Three- Daddy and Cy had some special candy land time together. How does Cyrus ALWAYS win?!

Daddy was working on our road today, so we walked down to see him in action!
