Life Lately

Jon hosted the Legend’s box last week at the Red Sox game and it was pretty awesome

Megan had her final choir concert last Sunday morning in Worcester.

The girls sounded amazing!! I’m still trying to get over all of the “last’s” with her. It’s crazy!! Wasn’t she just 9 years old singing in the 4th grade chorus??

Beckett and I had a lunch and shopping date with our friends

Soooooo cute!!

Jon got another 4 tickets to the Red Sox and took Emma, Chloe and Lucy (Megan had a date)

I took Beckett out for pizza and then we hung out watching Boss Baby (currently his favorite movie)

Another quick week!! A few more Pics from the week:

I’m pretty sure this boy just keeps getting cuter

Happy Saturday!!



Boy was Beckett excited yesterday morning! We had a plan the night before that he would wake each one of his sisters up when he woke up so we could check out what the Easter bunny brought him. He ran into each of their rooms saying “Happy Easter”. He was just the cutest little thing!!

I decided to “get in the photo” this year so most of these are of me. Ha! Ha! Sorry….



We stopped at my parents for a quick visit before heading over to Marlene and Brians for dinner


Getting a photo where all seven of us are looking, smiling, keeping eyes open is getting harder and harder. This was the best one. hahaha…not great


Can I just tell you that these two are really going to miss each other this fall.


Check out B with his little buddies, Connor and Camden. It was so fun watching him be able to play with his boy cousins.

It was a really great day!! Happy Easter!


Easter, a Gender Reveal and a Birthday

Easter has always been one of my favorite holidays. This year was extra busy and extra exciting!! We started off at home doing an egg hunt with the girls. Not too many 18 year olds get to hunt for eggs, but this was a special hunt. Somewhere in our house was a golden egg. Inside that egg was either blue or pink M&M’s letting the girls know whether they would be getting a baby brother or a baby sister.






It’s a boy!! I think we were all a little more than shocked to find that out. I honestly didn’t care what we were having. I just wanted to make sure that this little baby was healthy. After you turn 35 the doctors, websites, magazines, message boards Etc.. scare the heck out of you. I would have been completely happy with another girl, these girls are my world. But, when the doctor called to tell me my results I couldn’t stop crying and shaking. I am BEYOND thrilled to have a boy. I can’t wait!!!

After that excitement the girls finished going through their baskets. Bath bombs from Lush were a huge hit this year.

Mimi and Baba had another hunt at their house

Then it was off to my parents to celebrate Easter and my mom’s birthday (which happens later this week). I also got to spend time with my brothers and their families and let them know that we were having a boy! More shock!

After all the excitement of the day we had to drop Emma back off at school.

We already miss her!! IMG_0781

The holidays are officially over and now it’s time to move on to Friary Family Birthday Season, which will now run until October!

Soccer Saturday

We have sports going on 7 days a week over here. This is the first time Chloe has played soccer since kindergarten. Her first game was this past Saturday. We all went and had so much fun watching her play. I was impressed at how good she was. Image

Check out that jersey!


She got right in there! She wasn’t timid at all!


Great job, Chloe!

Two Days With Lu

Last year at this time I was taking Lu in for her kindergarten screening. Oh man, was I upset! I remember how calmly she took the teacher’s hand and left me in the lobby on the brink of tears. She’s had the last 2 days off due to screening and even though I feel for those new mamas sending their babies off to kindergarten I got to enjoy some one on one Lucy time. We started yesterday off by going to the party store. We were in search of masks for Chloe and Megan’s semi formal this weekend. We had a ton of fun!!







After that we headed over to Target because let’s face it, Target with a little one makes me feel like a modern mama 🙂 Joking! (Not really)
Lucy picked McDonalds for lunch.


We finished our day together by taking a nice walk



We’re just hanging around the house today, watching movies and playing ponies


Oh how I’ve missed the company during the day!!


Hope everyone had a nice Easter! We had a great day with both sides of the family this year! We did miss my brother Craig and nephew Colton, though. 


I forgot how exciting Easter can be for a 5 year old. She was excited all week! 


Holidays are officially over. On to birthday season!!


I’m not a huge fan of the carnival at all! But every year it comes to town and every year it parks it’s self on town field. Town field is in front of the school so there is no avoiding it. Don’t get me wrong,  I love rides, cotton candy and happy children. I just love them some place other then the carnival. Jon and the girls talked me into going this year and look what happened:


That’s me having fun at the carnival!! This was the Sizzler ride. We laughed like fools on that ride, it was so much fun!!


Look! I’m still smiling!!


Jon loves the carnival!

I’m glad that we went this year. It was a lot of fun and small enough to be done with in an hour. We had a lot of laughs, I got some cute pictures and we ate a huge bag of cotton candy! What’s better then that?

A Night At the Park

Why yes, I do have other children. Why do you ask?

The other night while Chloe was at her guitar lesson and Emma at her away tennis match and Megan at her lacrosse practice, I got to spend some quality time with little Lucy at the playground. ImageImageImage

We’re all so happy that spring has finally arrived!

Our Weekend

It was finally nice enough to go to the park!ImageImage

We spent most of our weekend outside. Jon and I have been walking and hiking a LOT lately!! Yesterday we went in the morning and then again in the afternoon.


It’s so quiet and peaceful walking around here. Oh wait, what’s that up ahead in the snow?ImageImage

A bear track?


Emma has her first tennis match today!Image

I would also like to wish my mom a very happy birthday today! Image
