All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

The Monday Snapshot – One More Christmas Present!


B has a wonderful business partner who he has actually known for 12 years now.  They worked together when B first got out of college, and she recruited him to his current company three years ago.  B loves his job immensely and we are grateful for her every day!  She is a wonderful woman with an awesome family – the type of family you want to emulate.  She and her husband (who is a nurse – do they get any nicer than that??) have two boys who are very tender-hearted.  They LOVE Matthew and Matthew loves them.  The boys (13 and 10) picked out a Christmas present for Matthew and would not allow their mom to give it to him until they could be there to watch him open it.  So this weekend, we took Matthew to watch one of the boys play in a basketball tournament (OMG Matthew LOVED watching the boys play basketball!) where he got his gift afterwards.

Those boys picked out the PERFECT gift for Matthew!  Turns out that they had one when they were his age and loved it for years – and just had to get it for Matthew.  What did I tell you?  Tender-hearted boys (even if the older one tries to act tough most the time – HA!)!  When these boys see Matthew, their faces just light up and vice versa.  It’s so special!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!
