Last week was spring break and it ended up being a pretty great week. That is mostly due to my brother and sister-in-law selling their house the previous weekend. They, along with my parents, came to Kansas City on Monday and we all went with them to look at some houses and make a final decision on which one they wanted. They made an offer and reached a deal the next day, so now they will officially be living here, less than ten minutes away from us! Hurray! They will even be going to our church and when they have kids, their kids will go to the same school as ours. I am so unbelievably happy about this!

The good news didn't stop there, though. My dad had to go back home Tuesday morning, but my mom stayed with us until Wednesday evening and I LOVE it when my mom is here. So, all that greatness coupled with the lovely weather we had Thursday and Friday added up to a pretty fantastic week. The upcoming week should be good too because I'm going to ignore the eight inches of snow we got yesterday and think only about the warm temperatures that are predicted.

A couple other random things...I crocheted this shamrock garland and I think it's so cute. Since I liked the Valentine's Day one and this one so much, I'm going to scour the internet and try to find a pattern for one for every holiday.
And here is Noah, sporting the ensemble he currently wears whenever we leave the house. He says he is a cowboy, but why he thinks cowboys look anything even remotely like this, I have no idea.

Oh, Noah, you make me laugh! It was a delightful week, wasn't it?

Haha Noah is funny.

This is a REAL cowboy - My favorite

I love your shamrocks! Glad you had a nice time with your mom and family.

Yee-haw! It's fun to read the stories you document because it's (relatively) unlikely that Noah will continue to dress like a cowboy every time you leave the house for too long. And you might forget if it wasn't for your blog. You capture some great moments!

I wonder if Noah is planning to wear his cowboy outfit on our birthday train ride!

Your friend, Hammons made a good point.
