the daily life

Shall we take a stroll through the weirdness that this spring and summer have been? What have you been up to? We’ve missed you so much! Mostly all of our spring was spent sunbathing naked and watching this bird. Or hotel of birds. My goodness those guys were busy. They went in and out in and out all day it seemed! And I STILL never got a good picture. Oh but how I love spring […]

Here we are, back with another birthday, complete with sadly decorated cake and all, as we do around here :) Sure love this boy and the flavor he brings to our family. Some pics from his day! ^^This is about as crafty as I get. Be oh so inspired. ^^I think boys have their sword fight brain engaged and ready for action at all times ^^A stance girls hardly ever assume ^^I don’t know if […]

The kids had never been to the snow so we decided to wait and take them when there were small batches of the iciest goodness possible. Luckily, they had nothing to compare it to so they were thrilled :) They slid down this small mound with such glee… They found a snowman that couldn’t even be knocked over cause it had turned into one small snowmanish shaped block of ice… They were so happy! I […]

Last week my baby girl turned FIVE! I cannot believe we have a five year old. She is the sweetest big sister, absolutely brilliant – seriously I wish I had her memory, passionate about all the things, feisty, oh so feisty… and yet, has the sweetest most compassionate little heart. I love her so much. How often do you turn five, right?? So, Disneyland. Obviously. Because I went when I was five and was absolutely […]

The sweetest – and I mean the SWEETEST boy turned one yesterday! Just thinking back to how depressed I was his whole pregnancy… and I mean, we are talking a verrrry dark place – to be gifted with the cheeriest little soul…. he’s just the biggest hug God could have ever given me and I’m so thankful for him. So anyways, a few pictures from this celebratory day! I know I’m probably projecting entirely but […]

Because it’s one of my most favorite days of the year! Just lookit these babes all snuggly in the morning watching the parade from on top of their brother And because I clearly can’t get enough of these faces.. Or these little heads.. They are my favorite. Also, Fall flowers are my favorite so let’s take a quick pause to look at 292 pictures of these beauties! I felt like making a cornucopia this year… […]

He is such a joy MY GOODNESS I can’t stop staring! The cheeks! The little chin! The curls that are coming in at the nape of his neck! THOSE EYELASHES! Not to mention the most edible tummy and foots and […]

little stories

Sometimes there are little things that happen that I want to pause to remember. Like today! I love my kids an absurd amount but there is one thing about them that drives me up the wall. They appear to hate being outside. We live in California – the land of notoriously perfect, 72 degree days. If it’s 73 it’s nooooooo it’s too hot!!! if it’s 71 IT’S FREEZING!!!. Each time they utter such absurdities a […]

Does he look happy? Does he? Cause he wasn’t… why with these pictures WHYYYYY!?! I say it with every child. Anyways! dear sweet sad boy, this month we are up to FOUR TEETH! And he’ll crawl (properly on his knees, mind you) across the room just to bite you. I’m so excited about the crawling. Life just got very busy but it’s so much fun to see his curiosity blossom. That is when he’s not […]
