Happy Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day.  Nick made a card for grammy and we put it in the mail last week.  She called and said she loved the card and displayed it in her house.

Here is Nick and mom with the tulips he and dad bought, and the card Nick and clay heart Nick made at school.  Mom said, "Thank you for the wonderful presents, I love them!"

Art Show

When mom came home from her trip, there was a paper on the counter that said Nick had pictures in the district art show.  On Friday night mom and Nick went to the Long Beach High School to see the exhibit and Nick's art work.  Nick was in good spirits at the school, and he showed mom his pictures.  Afterward we went to have ice cream at Marvel.

Welcome Home Mom

Last week, mom was working far away in Florida.  After the work was done, mom went to visit with some of our family.  Mom showed Nick the family pictures from the trip.

Nick was happy to see mom home from the airport.
He ran outside and give mom a big hug and brought the suitcase into the house.

Here is a picture of Uncle Randy, Sarah, Zoe, mom,
Aunt Jennie, Uncle Frankie, and Aunt Hilary.

In this picture we see Tamara, Martin, Haven, Renee, mom and Daniel.

April Snow

Yesterday Nick put up his window decorations to celebrate the arrival of spring.  But this morning we woke up to a surprise, instead of April Showers, we have April Snow!

Mom looked online and said the snow should stop in the afternoon.  Mom said, "that's good news, we bought some spring flowers this week and we don't want them to get too cold.  Also, I put the shovels and the salt away on Saturday!"

Happy Easter!

On Easter Sunday, Liza gave Nick a card, it was created by his classmates at school. Liza said, "I love supporting your class and buying you cards for all the holidays!"

Planting Pansies

Today there was no AHRC, so mom said to Nick, "let's go to the garden center and get some flowers to plant."

We went to the garden center and picked out pansies to put in our flower boxes.
As soon as we got back to the house Nick opened the trunk and took out the flowers and put them on the lawn.  Mom went to get our gloves and garden tools to do the work.
First we had to toss the soil and mix it up so it was fresh for the flowers.
Nick was very happy, he kept taking breaks to jump and clap his hands.  He had a big smile on his face.
Mom was very happy that Nick helped with the planting. 

Here he is putting the flowers in the soil. 

Nick has done this since he was a little boy, and now he is big and a great helper in the garden.
