Nick is my sweet 7 year old. He is in first grade and he's a fabulous kid. Nick is very smart, very sensitive, very into Star Wars, bakugan, Wii, playing, learning, and loving life! He's a super kid and a pure joy to be around. His contagious smile and sweet freckles melt my heart. Nick is a perfect big brother and I am so proud of him and honored to be his Momma!
Adam is my baby. My youngest and most cuddley, yet awnry child! He is quite the comedian at his young age and is sure to be entertaining. He is sweet, loving, funny, and innocent. He has a perfect smile, an hilarious sense of humor, and he is totally genuine. Adam is a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day!

I'd rather be a mother than anyone on earthBringing up a child or two of unpretentious birth...I'd rather tuck a little child all safe and sound in bedthan twine a chain of diamonds about my [carefree] head.I'd rather wash a smudgy face with round, bright, baby eyesThan paint the pageantry of fame or walk among the wise. ~ Meredith Gray
What a hot Memorial Day weekend! We bought a slip n' slide for something fun to do.
I even went down the slide - twice. I'm sure it was quite a sight and hope the neighbors weren't watching. The kids laughed and we had a super time!!!!
I got some really great photos of the day.
The sun was really hot and I was fearing the water wouldn't make the sunscreen last as long so towards the end I made them wear t-shirts. I might be nuts, but babies with sunburns doesn't sound like fun to me.
I was teasing Nick about getting him a mowhawk (No I wasn't serious - I don't like them, we were just playing). His hair was wet and I honestly thought he looked really cute. Ray didn't enjoy my humor. I loved this picture.
I had a super Mother's Day. I was treated like a queen and I got so many special gifts. My hubby out did himself this year. The final gift I received at dinner was a beautiful diamond necklace! I was shocked. The kids made me some really sweet gifts at school that included their handprints (I'll post pics of those later). Handprints and a sweet poem is a quick way to a Mom's heart. Below are some pictures of us playing in the backyard after a day full of activities.
I want the ball... No I want the Ball!!
My Sweet Boy!
Ready and willing to squirt anyone who comes close.
Our league T-ball rules allow the coaches to pitch to their team. If the child can not connect to the ball after 3 tries, then they use the Tee. In this picture, Ray is pitching to Nick. (It's quite a coinsidence that Nick happens to be the number one and he is the coaches son - don't ya think?)
A Mommy Funny -
Nick is up to bat for the first time.
He hits the ball on the first pitch
He doesn't run
I'm yelling Nick run
He starts to run
Everyone is quiet (except for me yelling for Nick to run!)
Ray is yelling "get back Nick - it was a foul ball."
Oops, I guess I got a little excited.
It's a HIT!!!
Getting antsy while on third.
Luckily there was a small park near the baseball diamond. Adam desperately wanted to play with Daddy & Nick so my parents and I took turns playing at the park to occupy Adam and to try and watch Nick play some too.
Hi, I'm Alison. I am 34 years old, I am a busy Momma of 2 young boys. I run a household, I work full time and I am a wife to a wonderful husband. We met at Indiana University of Pa. I have been married for 9 lovely years but we have been together for 15! My life has turned out exactly how I had dreamed and in my eyes, it's practically perfect! Welcome and thanks for enjoying my happiness.
Ray is my wonderful 33 yr old hubby. We met our freshman year at collge in 1996 and have together ever since. He is a high school physics & chemistry teacher. In addition to teaching children, he is fantastic father to his own. I could not ask for a better man to be my life partner and best friend. We may not agree on everything, but in the end, we agree on everything that is truly important. He is a great man, perfect father, loving husband and I could not ask for more!
