Hi Lo: May 29th
1) John-Paul's blood test showed no peanut allergy!! Yay!! Now we have a "peanut challenge" scheduled for July when he will have to eat pb at the allergist's office to make sure his body reacts okay.
2) I have been eating more fruits and veggies lately. Actually, my last two dinners have been vegetarian fajitas, and veggie burgers with corn on the cob. Yum!
3) We are almost done taking down the wallpaper in the house, and have the painters scheduled to come on June 20th.
1) Maggie's ear tube surgery was scheduled for Wed morning, but when Phil brought her in for the pre-op appointment on Tues, the anaesthesiologist said he wouldn't put her under because her lungs didn't sound good. She has a cold and little cough, as well as a low-grade fever that comes and goes.
So, we went to out pediatrician on Wed to get her checked out, and he said her lungs sounded fine, and to get her a chest x-ray to prove the anaesthesiologist wrong. I took her to the hospital to get the x ray, and it came back clean. Now we are waiting until June 3rd (the next available surgery).
It's so frustrating because she has been on antibiotics for soooo long, and she was perfectly healthy while we had to wait for the surgery but then got sick right before. The pediatrician says the reason she has the fever/cold is because her little body is trying to fight off an infection being caused from all the fluid in her ears.

My in-laws live in MD, and we had a very important reason for travelling there last weekend - Phil's dad became a Deacon! The Ordination was on Saturday at the Cathedral, and it was very beautiful. I believe there were 12 permanent Deacons being ordained that day. After the Mass, all the grandkids started calling him "Deacon Gramps", although one of my nephews couldn't articulate it clearly and called him "Bacon Gramps" - ha!
We had a cookout on Sunday, complete with s'mores around the fire. My in-laws have a huge backyard and it was in the 80's, so we were outside almost the whole weekend! Our kids got to play with their cousins they hardly ever see, so they were in Heaven.
We had a nice time, the kids were soooooo good in the car on Fri and Mon, and we're headed back down in about 3 weeks while our house is being painted.
Enjoy more pictures in the Memorial Weekend slideshow! (at the bottom)

Way Back When-sday
Phil and I met in Austria through the study abroad program at Steubenville.
We fell in love while travelling through Europe together (not alone, that would be scandalous!)
What a cutie Phil is!! He was only 19 here.
No wonder I fell so hard for him :)

We've never been this successful in postponing a pregnancy for this long.
We were taught NFP by a couple who had eight children, after all.
It only took four kids for us to think we finally have it figured out?!?!
Hope I didn't just jinx myself.
But even if I did, a new baby is a great consolation prize:)
What are you thankful for today?

This one is called "Warm Springs" (all paint is from Benjamin Moore). This color would go in our bedroom and bathroom.
This is "Shabby Chic" which would go in our family room, living room, and hallways. Also on our front and back stairwells.
And the third color is "Sea View" for our kitchen and dining room. Unless I decide to keep the kitchen yellow, and just have the dining room blue - hmmmmm.
These colors seem to suit our house and location, given that we live near the beach.
What do you think? Do the colors go well together? Would you change anything?

Interior Decorator Wanted
I'm open to any ideas, so speak up! I was created without a crafty bone in my body, this is so not my forte.
(These blue walls are our bedroom. I wanted to show you the furniture to help influence your decision)
