Girls Rule and Boys Drool
A robin has decided to make her nest on the windowsill outside of my laundry room window. I can't believe the amazing construction of this nest. It is perfectly round and so well put-together. She gathered all of the straw/grass/garbage from our garden. We watched her add a little to it everyday for about a week.
Then, one day I peeked inside the nest and noticed that there was one perfect, little egg inside the nest. The color is so vibrant. I now understand what people mean when they say "robin's egg blue." It is truly a one-of-a-kind hue.
Then, much to our amazement, there were three. We were so excited. We feel some sort of ownership over this little nest, sitting on our windowsill. We each take turns peeking in the window to make sure the eggs are okay. When Momma Bird is nesting, we are sure to avoid the laundry room altogether, so we don't upset her.

Lily celebrated her birthday with her friends on Sunday. She had a Hannah Montana birthday party. The girls started the party by giving each other manicures.
In this picture, Lily is devouring the Hello Kitty on the top of her cake. LOL... Of course, these pics are slightly out of order, so here the girls are watching Lily open presents. She really cleaned up and got lots of great gifts!

Here is Matt with Grandpa and Grandma...
The insane amount of desserts we had (and don't mind the pile of messy dishes in the background. I obviously hadn't done the dishes yet when this pic was taken.)

I love the contrast of the bright blue egg against the faded, peeling birch tree in this pic...
Another one I like...although I wish I had changed the depth of field so that the background was a bit more blurred, but I was in a hurry to take the pic before they spotted this egg...

For those of you who know me well, you will understand how this short little video clip, incapsulates my life so well. You get to see my sweet, sensitive little boy, doing what he does best (crying), my baby who has learned to spit her food at me during dinner time and my middle child with a boxing glove on her hand! LOL All of this happened in under a minute while I was feeding the baby and cooking dinner, waiting for Daddy to come home from work! LOL :)
