The next day he became a big brother!!
Being a busy mom that works with 2 young children, I am always looking to maximize the actual time I have with Derek and Hayley. I try to play as much as I can, which leads to my house never being as neat as I would like and my laundry baskets typically overflowing. Rob and I share cooking meals while the other plays with the kids and Finnegan!
I think because of the constant rush our little family traditions mean so much to me. Even little things that we do together, just the four of us, are the best! Which is why I have taken it upon myself to create some traditions for my family, if I don’t then who would?!?
Some of my favorite traditions are;
~Always taking the day off work and daycare for the kids birthdays and going somewhere special
~Getting our Christmas tree in the parking lot by our house
~Renting a house in Ocean City for a week just the 4 of us for much needed alone and relaxation time
~Going to the fire safety fair in town (Derek is a fireman in training!)
|For Hayley’s birthday this year we went to Smith Play Pla|
|I always have special shirts made for the kids birthdays.
This is Derek and Hayley at their first birthday parties!

I have also been pinning lots of things to make with and for the kids for the holidays which could be new traditions for us!! http://pinterest.com/sunbeam377/
