March 2015 Recap

March brought us a lot of rain and a lot of gloomy, chilly days, but the promise of spring was underneath it all so we made it through without much grumbling.

We enjoyed a game night with Paul and Amanda, the boys went to a Kid's Night Out at the local YMCA, and Ben's company officially moved in to their new office space. Gabe's 8th birthday was the highlight of the month, but I'll do another post for that.

The bunnies became a lot of fun.

The boys and I held and played with them every day. They are so cute and so fluffy and so precious. The bunnies were a big surprise,but they've been such a great experience for our family.

Our country for the month of March was Ireland. We ate corned beef with potatoes and cabbage and I made two versions of soda bread. Both were gluten free, but one was also paleo. They both turned out well, but the paleo version was more like a honey cake and not much like the dense, dry soda bread. Oh, well. The adults enjoyed a mint Bailey's and Creme cocktail. Our craft was to honor St. Patrick and made for a great Easter centerpiece.

Ben's company finally got moved into their new space and then proceeded to hold their annual retreat/dinner, so Ben was pretty busy all month long.

Ben and his brother took the boys to Lego fest. It was kind of pricey, but they limited the amount of tickets that were sold per time bracket so everyone could participate and the boys really, really enjoyed themselves. And I enjoyed the time on my own. :)

House progress seemed agonizingly slow. It really just crept along. The plumbers took their time and the contractor didn't want to be in their way so nothing was done on his end while the plumbers (slowly) completed their work. Repeat for the HCAC guys as well. Ugh. Here's hoping next month brings a completed addition.

The good news is that most of my plants in the front yard are doing great!! I have one kind (of which I had 4 of) die off, but everything else is no worse for the wear so that's a relief and blessing.

Posts containing Gaber's birthday photos and my health update are coming soon!
