A CELEBRATION

Two things I craved the most while pregnant, but couldn't eat or drink was sushi and beer. Last night, Ben and I were finally able to carve out some quiet time and celebrate the birth of our littlest love together. How did we celebrate? A movie and some indulging in our favorite sushi and some (non-alcoholic) beer. I like to start off slowly.
sushi and (non-alcoholic) beer at lastsushi and (non-alcoholic) beer at lastsushi and (non-alcoholic) beer at lastsushi and (non-alcoholic) beer at last
Okay, maybe I threw in some macarons and triple chocolate bundt cake in for dessert. This was a celebration after all!

Ben's mom left yesterday and we are finally feeling the reality of having four kids. We were out and about at doctor visits and errands yesterday and it is no easy feat getting all the kids in and out of the house and in the car. Craziness I tell you! I am sure there will soon be a time when we will have to go eat at a restaurant with all of them and that no doubt will be insane as well. Going from three to four definitely ain't easy, but it is quadruple the joy!

  5. my 4th made me insane :-)

    also made me much better at rolling with it, praying, coloring, leaving dishes in the sink, relying on God's plan instead of my own, and simply being thankful for making it through each day.

    four rocks
    now I look at my 4 and think..."this is ALL we have???"

    that is when my husband gets nervous

    I might have some beer and sushi tonight to celebrate too :-)

  11. Oh yes! I celebrated the births of my two sweeties with sushi too! I also totally understand your craving for beer, I'm still breast feedings so I still have to do without it. But I already know the taste of every non alcoholic you can get here in Vienna!

    All the best to you!
