Please accept these pictures as my apology...

OK, I'll admit it. I've been a bad blogger lately. Things around here have been hectic to say the least! Currently, I'm juggling mama duties (baby yoga, weekly play group, play dates, photo taking, raspberry blowing, springtime adventures etc), full time schoolwork, yard work and a long list of to-dos including toddler bed prep (big change is coming up soon) and hallway painting! Whew. I officially take back every other time in my life when I claimed to be busy. THIS is busy! Anyway, I'm not going to let FCB go by the wayside. Unfortunately, I'm up to my ears in schoolwork with not much time to write this week. As a compromise, here's a quick update of our life lately in photo form. This is what Aurora had been up to for the last week or so:
Waving to everyone at our zoo picnic...
Watching some baby videos on You Tube. She LOVES babies these days.
Trying (and failing) to blow bubbles.  Guess it's a little early for that!
Discovering that her new shampoo gives her a huge afro. Oops.
We also got to meet Aurora's cousin J. for the first time last week. Ready for a cute baby overload?!
Hmm.... what's good here?
I want this!
Look mom, a baby!

Twinsies. Seriously.
OK... back to work! Hope everyone is doing great and enjoying spring so far!

It's beginning to look a lot like... um... Easter.

So tomorrow is Easter! I wanted to do something cute and fun for Aura but I was a little stumped since she's still too young for candy. I may give her a little bite of marshmallow or chocolate but that seemed pretty stingy! I settled on a little stuffed puppy, some no-spill bubbles, and a couple little books for her basket. Then I came up with this cute idea for an egg hunt without the candy. I put pom poms in her eggs! She's intrigued by them when we go to baby yoga so I know she'll be excited. Plus they are color coordinated with the eggs so it'll work like a sorting game too! Genius if I do say so myself!
Ta-da! Mission Candy-free Easter accomplished!
The bag is goodies from Grandma J. and Grandpa F.
What are you guys doing for Easter? Candy or no? Any good ideas I can steal for next year (haha)?

Work From Home

Guest post of the week by Deangelo Spencer

I am finally at a place in my career where I can work from home 3 days a week, and only have to go in to the office 2 days a week. This is something I’ve wanted to do for awhile, but it just hasn’t been possible until now. I am looking forward to having a more flexible schedule, and being more present for my wife and children in the evenings. With the commute into the office, I am not getting home until after 7 pm every night. I am glad to reduce that to only 2 days a week now. There have been so many games, performances, not to mention just family dinners, that I have missed out on because of work. I know my wife is going to be so relieved to have my support in the evenings now. I’m setting up an office at home by converting our den into an office. I’m looking in to clear internet bundle deals so that I will be able to work more effectively. This is going to be good.
