Happy St. Patrick's Day

I made these cute shirts for Ezra and I last night. It was super easy, and I am happy with the result. I just did it with freezer paper and fabric paint. If you want to see exactly how you can check out this blog. I wanted them to be little momentos of our time here in Boston and not just St. Patty's Day shirts, and I think I got what I wanted. The best part was that I got my shirt on clearance at Old Navy for $.97! It is a small, and I really should buy mediums, but for $.97 I couldn't resist. So for a total of about $5 Ezra and I have super cute shirts.

In honor of this holiday I just want to say that we are so LUCKY to have this sweet little guy! Approximately three years ago today we were blessed to get pregnant with Ezra (T.M.I. I know!) and what a wonderful three years it has been. (Minus the first few months.) It was just a week or so ago, that Ezra was totally in a terrible two phase. I thought we would get lucky and avoid it for the most part, but it was not seeming so. I felt like he forgot how to talk and only knew how to whine. I was worried we were going to move in with Bob's parents, and they would think I was the worst mom ever. Fortunately after a few days he snapped out of it, and is back to his wonderful little self. Not that he is perfectly behaved by any means, but he is so much more pleasant to be around!

Bikes, Boards, and Blessings

I will start with the blessings. Our apartment got taken!!! We only did two rounds of showings, and I am so relieved that I don't have to do it anymore. The best part is that it saves us $3900 that we would have had to pay in rent if we hadn't found someone. We have of course had countless other blessings, but this is the biggest one as of late.

I know this picture is random, but we have been making Ezra clean his room each night. 
For every two weeks of cleaning he gets a toy. The first week it was a construction set.
He really likes the hat, and he has a blast with the tools.

We also did our Miles for Miracles event. It was a lot of fun, and over $125,000 was raised. Thank you to all of you who supported us! I ate a ton of the food that was there, to be sure and not loose any of the calories that I burned. I also enjoyed the post-ride massage, which was more of a professional stretch, but it was still nice. We really appreciate Cate and Wyatt riding with us. I definitely did not want to do another hour on that bike. I had a hard time sitting for a few days as it was.

Bob gave himself much more of a workout than me.
I got a little sweaty, but took it pretty easy on myself.
You can't really tell, but our shirts have smiley faces with a little cleft.

This is right after Wyatt finished (he was last), that is why the rest of us look so rested.

And last but not least Bob has some big exams coming up. He is taking Part II of his boards on the17th and 18th and then the written part of the WREB on the 22nd and 23rd. He would appreciate any prayers you could offer up in his behalf!
