{happy valentine’s day 2012}

morgan had a valentine’s day & pajama party at preschool today and was so excited from the moment she got up.

she brought valentines for all her friends, made a cute little bag & a hand print collage to bring home for marc & i.

i could tell she had a lot of fun when i picked her up…..such a good feeling.

when we got home she took a look at all her treats & goodies marc & i gave her and told me “mom, i really like all the stuff you got me.  it’s just perfect.”.

she can be such a sweetheart and her compliments mean more than anything to me.

today is a special day to marc & i because we found out i was pregnant on valentine’s day.

5 years ago i found out i was expecting morgan and could not have been happier.

i made a home-made pizza for marc that night and spelled out the word “dad” in pepperoni.

it didn’t take him long to figure it out and we were on top of the world.

5 years later we have this to show for it.

morgan is the best thing that ever happened in our lives, she’s taught us a lot and what’s really important in life.

tonight we’ll be having a heart-shaped pizza, the three of us.

Morgan’s 4 year birthday interview

I CANNOT believe how long it’s been since I’ve posted on here.

Way too long.

I’ve been so completely overwhelmed with my new business and home life lately and am trying to find some sort of balance.

I am promising myself that I will get back to posting on here on a regular basis.

Anyways, our little Morgan turned 4 on October 26th and she couldn’t be happier about it.

Last year I did her first “birthday interview” which I am going to do every year until she tells me to stop.

Here’s my exclusive interview with the newly 4-year-old Morgan Reese Carlson.

~It was fun, that’s it.  And it was crazy too!

What was your favorite part of your party?

~Having the jumper house.

What was your favorite present you got at your birthday party?

~Glitter markers.

What is your favorite thing to do?

~Uh huh.

What do you want for Christmas?

~Um, A stuffed mommy emperor penguin and a daddy emperor penguin

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
