Never let it be said that I’m not up for a challenge. Probably 2 months ago I heard about the Blogging From A to Z Challenge. Planned for April 2012 I thought it might be fun to join in. When did I sign up?…March 31 of course. I do tend to leave things to the last-minute sometimes. You can read all about it at the link above and if you read this today, April 1, you can still sign up and join in. We are to blog with a theme based on the daily letter of the alphabet. Today is the only Sunday we are required to blog so I guess the other Sundays I’ll be on my own. I think I’m up for it. I’m joining in and here goes!
A is for April so that’s not hard. April is the month when we really see all the beauty of nature start to appear. Of course with our warm winter, we’ve been seeing it a lot in March, but I don’t think anyone is complaining. April showers bring May flowers and all that. April is also the month of my sweet Ralph’s birthday and this is a special one, so I think we’ll do a lot of celebrating,
But A is also for Arrival. In January, we were blessed with a new addition to the family. Beautiful little Colette Mary was born on January 16. Fun fact, her Mom and Dad Heather and Brian, newly engaged at the time made an appearance in the very first post on Broken Cookies Don’t Count in December of 2010. Since I realized I never got a picture of them yesterday because after all Colette was the focus, here’s their first appearance photo again.
They’re just as adorable today, but now we have this little charmer added to the mix.
Great closeup with Uncle Ralph.
Of course since we were at my sister Ele’s house there was food!!
Almost as proud as I am of this little gift from Heaven…
Poor little thing couldn’t get a moments rest. I think the next photo of Colette is my favorite…
It looks like she’s auditioning for a Zombie movie! Oh, wait…we’re only on the letter A. Zombies will have to wait for the end of the month.
Hope you enjoyed my first installment of Blogging From A to Z and meeting our wonderful, adorable first arrival for the year, Colette. We actually have another arrival who came to brighten our lives in February, but we haven’t met him yet. We’ll have to wait for me to come up with another word for him or until we get to the letter T.
I must confess…We actually got COLETTE at Build A Bear, Too!!
😉 Happy April Fool’s Day!!
