the lepers came

On St. Patty's Day some little Leprechauns - or Lepers as Linc calls them - came and turned our milk green. And the creamer. And the eggs. Lincoln loved it. Next year, the Leprechauns might want to do a bit more - these Irish boys can't get enough.

My new favorite St. Patrick's Day tradition:
getting green [mint] milkshakes from Olivers!

Not sure what they put in Cai's milkshake...
brain freeze Linc??

On the way home, Lincoln started getting a bit sassy because we wouldn't let him drink his milkshake in the car. Mike told him he needed to stop talking like that or he was going to get punished. Lincoln responded, "I just want to hit somebody". Malacai responded, "Hit me!".

I laughed the rest of the way home.

down on the farm party

Sweet little Malacai Mitchell is now two. We celebrated with my side of the family this past weekend. Both boys are obsessed with everything farming, so we decided that a down on the farm party would be perfect for little Mully.
All pictures (minus the photo booth) are by my brother-in-law, Justin, a most amazing photographer. Thanks Just!

Our menu was:
- a veggie garden
- eggs (deviled)
- chicken (tenders)
- pigs (in a blanket)
- haystacks (cookies)
and my favorite:
- cowtails!!

Drinks were:
- lemonade
- sweet tea (southern style)
- soda pop

Vanilla vanilla cupcakes- yum (I spent way too much time making the cupcake toppers; but loved how they turned out)!
Lincoln was a little bummed that his cupcake didn't have candles in it.

My wonderful Michael came up with the photo booth for us. He set up a camera with a remote and hooked it up to the TV so you could see the photos as they were taken. So clever!

Such a fun party! Happy Birthday little Mulls!

(Stupid blogger messed up the sizes of all my photos! on them to make it a little bigger...)

Happy Birthday Malacai Mitchell!

Last year I was super motivated and blogged about his birth and made a birthday picture collage.

just for lyndsay

So should I just start posting like I haven't been missing for months? Or should I explain that I spent September-December throwing up and mostly in bed; January fighting the gross stomach virus that hit everyone in my family - Linc & me twice (so lucky!!! because I hadn't been throwing up enough) and major head colds; February recovering and exhausted. So, so exhausted. And honestly, I just haven't felt like blogging. Any spare minute that I get, I usually spend napping.
But Lyndsay is anxiously waiting. And so this post is for her; so that when she clicks on my blog, she can't mutter "dang it" any more. Even though she'd probably rather see photos of the boys then our trip down to see her.
We made the trek down to the bustling city of Beaver Falls, PA a few weeks ago to hang out with Lyx & Andy. Craig even came in from Brooklyn and went down with us to surprise Lyx. Marla & Justin had the lousy excuse of being in New Zealand for not joining the sibling trip.
And for those that look at the pictures and think all we did for the entire weekend was eat, well, all I can say is pictures don't lie.

We spent lots of time chatting, playing games and drinking coffee. I had to put up these ridiculous pictures of Craig & me enjoying the cubans that Andy made for us. Soo good! (Lynz -I need to know what he put in them, I forgot). Aren't Lyndsay's mugs super cute?

Our super hip barista.

We happened to go down the day after Lynz's birthday, so it was nice to celebrate with her. I made her a red velvet cake (which almost didn't make the car ride down as you can see from the leaning cake - yikes!) and a pecan pie - two of her favorites. For some reason we never got a picture of the pie. (First time I ever made Justin's specialty)

Red velvety goodness. Lyx also had some red velvet cheesecake leftover from V-day.

We swear we'd still go visit the Grimm's even if Oram's wasn't in their town. Cinnamon rolls=best thing ever!

We went into Pittsburgh and walked down the strip and went into all kinds of cool stores. I was so excited by this olive bar. Who knew such huge vats of olives were out there??

We also saw some grossy stuff. Not so excited by this.

Street tacos. Prepared by a vendor outside the Mexican supermarket. Amazing!

Eating the famous Pitts-burger. Lynz takes this task very seriously.

Coolest cats ever.

We had our own homemade mexican dinner Saturday night. Please note the small black bowl. It's QUESO from DON PABLOS!!! Andy risked life & limb driving us there so I could get me some!! (There are no DP's left in NYS). What a brother-in-law, right?!

I love going to visit my little seester! I do wish my little siblings didn't live so far away, even though they provide us with some fun rode trips.

We'll see if I can be inspired to post again anytime soon. I think I hear my bed calling me...
