Tramontana Memories .... Signing off....

With all the major changes in our lives I figure a whole new blog is in order.   I'm going to leave (Five in our Hive / Me plus three) www.tramontanamemories.blogspot.com up for awhile but I'm going to start a new blog in the meantime.

Any name suggestions?  Leave comments or e-mail me with some creative blog title names ... :)

So, as the last post on this blog that I've been keeping for FOUR YEARS (wow!!) I thank you for being loyal readers and hope you've enjoyed my family's pictures and blog posts as much as I've enjoyed doing them.   I'm nervous, but am looking forward to a "new chapter" in our lives and hopefully I will come up with a blog name to match the newness/excitement/scariness and some loneliness of moving forward as a single mom. 

Thank you to all my friends and family who have been with me through the good times and the bad times, and a special and whole-hearted thanks to those of you that have been here for me during these last few months (you know who you are).  Your support and unconditional love are what has kept me going and pushing forward to be a better person and mom for my kids, the three biggest loves in the world.    

So....Five in our Hive (recently renamed as: Me plus three) is officially .....signing off....watch for my new blog (title to be announced) soon.

Much love .... XO

Our last trip ... The Homestead

This is kind of a bittersweet post because this will have been our last trip ever as a family.  So kind of sad, but I want to post the pictures from our trip to The Homestead because the kids had SOOOOOO much fun.  They LOVED tubing, sliding down hills, playing in the snow and walking (running) around the incredibly beautiful property. Of course we swam, and had "tea and hot cocoa" in the hotel lobby after coming in from the snow.   It's an amazing hotel ... very historic (from the 1700's)  and numerous presidents and princes and other famous people have stayed there.  If you get the chance and can get to Hot Springs, VA ... I'd definitely recommend checking it out.  (http://www.thehomestead.com/)  Here's some pictures in no particular order.......

Enjoy! XO











































The tooth fairy has been BUSY ....

So I know my posts have been random and out of order - but it's hard to get caught up when I get so far behind.   So forgive the randomness of my postings.

The tooth fairy has been busy these last few months!

Zach's lost ...3 or 4 (eek, can't remember) and the girls just lost their first tooth this month within a few weeks of each other.  (By the way - can you have any doubt they're mirror identicals?  Avery lost her bottom right and Addie lost her bottom left!)  When I was a little girl the tooth fairy left fifty cents.  Now the tooth fairy leaves a five and the kids know that $5.00 "ain't gonna buy much" and so they contemplate the best way to get more teeth out of their mouth so they can "get something good".  LOL!!!!













Happy tooth-pulling!!!
