Moving Down Under

It's official. We are moving to Australia. We booked our flights for June 24th. Excited for the new adventure and all the lovely family/friends we get to spend time with and sad to be saying goodbye to everyone and everything here. Such mixed emotions. We are going to be living RIGHT on the beach. Can't be much prettier. I am going to love so many things about it. Our boys will run free with the DINGOs. Come visit us. xoxo

Milo drinking an Aussie hot chocolate drink called Milo

These kids are crazy and have more personality than I could dream of. Why is it that I get online and see my other blogs and ask myself why I am not a more talented writer? I wish I more eloquently wrote about my children and the joy they are to me. I wish I could communicate how amazing they are... but I guess it is easier for me to capture them in photos. I love how much an image can say. Looking at these people must get the sense of how fun the Hadley boys are. I certainly enjoy them.

Yipee I am 3

Milo turned 3. We had all of his little buddies over for a TOY STORY 3 party. We made sure to have lots of fun things for everyone to do. I can't believe he is so big. Everyone says that as parents but it is because it is scary how fast time flies. It makes me want to savor each lil' moment all the more. What a joy little people are and what fun it is to bring them joy too.

It has been ages since I posted last. For one, because I have been so busy with work and the two boys, but also because I have been writing on my other blog

I don't have a lot of time but I do like to post every now and then. I am not sure that anyone reads my posts but I know it is a good way to "journal" about our lives and what we are doing. I often just post photos because I love to share them with my family who lives all over the world.

Milo just had his 3rd birthday (will post photos soon) and Mason is now over a year old. Geoff and I just pour over our little men and think they are the most fun people to be with on the planet. They are "best mates" as Milo says and are so fun to giggle with.

The other day Milo and him had to get their vaccinations. We told Milo about the "shots" so that he would not have it take him off guard. After ward in the parking lot, still crying, he asked me in the saddest little boy voice ever, "Momma- why did that mean lady SHOOT me?" I thought it was too funny... Poor little guy-

I wish I could record every single moment of their awesomeness. Thank goodness for IPhones cause we do get to capture a lot of their fun moments. I will be better about posting stuff- forgive me.

Candlelight Serenade Acoustic Festival

I have never worked on anything so hard in my entire life. I spent 6 months of my life organizing, executing, and raising the money to put on this concert for Child Rescue. It was overwhelming, exhausting, and a huge learning experience for me. I am so glad that it is over and that I get to be with my little boys more (even though I was working out of the house). The concert was not the financial success we had hoped for but we were able to raise funds for local law enforement and vicitm services, but there was a huge amount of awareness that took place and people's were moved and are now apart of this anti-trafficking movement. I was humbled by all the help and support we received by generous sponsors, media, and volunteers. My dear friends and family that helped with this massive undertaking (you know who you are)..... you are my heart. I love you all. Please visit for more details about the cause and for more info about the concert.

The Sweet Tooth Fairy was our Title sponsor. My dear friends own this company. Best cupcakes- but their cake bites are to DIE FOR!

Our Sea of Candles moment was the most emotional part. Each candle represented a victim.

Candlelight Serenade

Our sea of candles moment was epic. All 4,000+ people had a tea light Candle and we sang the Child Rescue theme song "Light in the Dark" in a tribute to children who are bought and sold as sex slaves in the United States. Child Prostitution and child pornography are human trafficking crimes and are horrific human rights issues. We can all help combat it.
