Colin, Ella and their dad went to see the Lego Batman movie today. :-) I, sadly, had to stay home because I wasn't feeling well, but they had a great time. :D <3 <3 <3

Don't forget, Be Kind Day is on March 9th, less than two weeks away! :D As always, we should strive to be kind every day, but on March 9th, we ask that you do anonymous acts of kindness and add a bow tie, for Colin's birthday. :D We've already got our Be Kind Day activities planned and we can't wait to hear all about yours on the day. :) <3 <3 <3

The kids' dad is home from work the next few days, and we decided to have a family night out. We tried a restaurant that we've been meaning to try, we did a little shopping and spent time together. We were sitting at dinner, and I was listening to our conversations and watching how we all interact, and I was overwhelmed with happiness. I hope these moments live in my memories forever. I love...

THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!! So, to continue the theme of this month, and posting Throwbacks of that first month this page was created, today's Throwback video is the very first video Colin did for the page after finding out about all of you. :D We did the video in the very fancy suite at Disney World, and we'd just seen a bunch of angry comments about our GMA appearance, so that's why Colin seemed...

It was another uncharacteristically mild day here, so after school we went to the playground. :-) Ella read in the sunshine while Colin battled a Pokemon gym and then some playing together before we headed home for dinner. :D <3 <3 <3

Here is this week's Colin asks video! <3 <3 <3
It was an Ella and Mom day. :-) We left the boys at home and had a girl day. We had a fantastic time together and now we're back with our boys. <3 <3 <3
Tonight was a mom and dad date night. :-) It doesn't happen very often so we joked that we're not very good at it. But we had a great time, we went to a scary movie, then out to dinner. Now, we're reunited with our babies, and we even brought them presents. (I mentioned we aren't good at date night, right? LOL) <3 <3 <3
I'd like to say a few things about Be Kind Day. :) First, we absolutely encourage everyone to be kind EVERY day, in small and big ways.:D But that's not what we're talking about here. Be Kind Day is on Colin's birthday, and it's our way of spreading the love and joy we have in this community to the whole world, with your help. 3 The rules are very simple. :) You must do ANONYMOUS acts of...

THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!!! Today's Throwback picture is from moments before we got on a flight to go to New York to be on Good Morning America. :D Colin thought he'd been asked to go on GMA to test out new video games (although he thought something might be up when we got to GMA the next morning and they had him playing a game that he already owned. LOL) :D Colin was so excited to go on his first...

I think we can all agree that Colin is a pretty funny kid. LOL His quick wit always amuses me. <3 <3 <3

Edited to add- Make sure to click the picture to get the full joke. ;)
The kids are wearing their Valentine's Day presents from me. :-) you may remember their ongoing "fight" over who is my favorite. Lol They love the shirts. Colin, of course, had to tell Ella that it was nice of me to buy one for her too so she didn't feel left out. LOL Stinker. <3 <3 <3
On Monday for the Colin Asks question, Colin asked what your favorite Valentine you ever received was, and much to our dismay many of you responded that you'd never received a Valentine. This saddened us, but we'd also like to remind you :) that for the past three years, you all have gotten a Valentine from us. 3 We may not be able to hand it to you in person, or give you the hug we'd like to,...

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! <3 As is our tradition, the kids want to wish you a happy day with a gigantic card. :D This year's card was made for you by Ella, but it's from all of us. We love you all! May your day be full of love, joy and candy. :) <3 <3 <3
Here is this week's Colin Asks video. :) <3 <3 <3
We decided today to try to recreate the very first picture we ever posted on the page. :) Back before Colin knew about this page, I took the first picture and shared it here. <3 And now look at my babies, 3 years later. Ella's about the size Colin was then, and Colin's almost as tall as I am (and so much a teenager, lol) You have been with us through all of this, and we love you all. <3 <3 <3
In preparation for Be Kind Day, we'll be posting anonymous kindness ideas, and clever ways to add a bow tie. :D Today, we found this fairly easy (if you are crafty, which I am not, lol, but Ella is :) ) bow tie craft, that you could easily attach to something for Be Kind Day. And remember, there are only 2 rules for Be Kind Day, 1) Do ANONYMOUS acts of kindness for others 2) Add a bow tie for...

It was 3 years ago today that this page that I made for Colin made the international news, and our numbers started skyrocketing. A lot of you are going to see us in your On This Day memories for today. ;) If you're just coming back to visit, or if you've been here the whole time, I want to thank you for being here, and for being Colin's Friend. 3 And I want to remind everyone about Be Kind Day...

Colin and I went for a walk today. :) it was very windy and I love how Colin made sure his hair was perfect before I took the picture and mine just looks.... well, like that. LOL But look how tall he's getting! I swear he grows half an inch a day! <3 <3 <3
