Christmas felt pretty darn special this year. It was our first holiday celebrating in our new home (glad Santa was able to figure out that we moved!) and it was also the last Christmas we will be spending as a family of four. Lots of emotions and excitement across the board. Joe also magically… Continue reading Christmas 2016
Well, hi! It’s been nearly two months since my last post. (As you can see, the above photo is from late summer when Target still thought kids carts were a good idea.) We’ve been staying busy with all things fall and adjusting to Cece’s life in kindergarten. I’ve been taking lots of family pictures and even shot two weddings… Continue reading ALL the things!
After a morning of shopping and eating in Stillwater, the birthday fun continued on a cruise on the St. Croix! We had a dinner of BBQ ribs and got to enjoy sitting on the different decks, taking in the view, and looking out for mermaids, of course. (This is not a photo of the boat… Continue reading I’m on a boat!
My twenties are a thing of the past! If the last couple days are any indication of how this next decade is going to go, I say bring it. (Though I may need to pencil in more naps for myself…) My mom, sister, my mom’s friend Denise and her daughter Jessica all came up to Minnesota/Wisconsin… Continue reading This is 30!
Cece turned five today! One whole hand! Just months away from starting kindergarten and one more year closer to being able to vote. It’s no exaggeration that they grow up so fast. Five is going to be a fantastic year from her, I can feel it! We celebrated the occasion by having a family party at… Continue reading Happy 5th Birthday, Cece!
The wedding festivities have officially been kicked off! This weekend I traveled (solo!) to Illinois to help throw a classy Mexican beach themed shower for my sister and her fiance. Thank you all so much to everyone who came and helped celebrate such a silly, special, (and ridiculously good-looking) couple. I know deep in my… Continue reading Showering Robbyn & Jay!
Today, Rosie turned two! Even though it was a rainy day, we got out to Good Times Park in the morning, squeezed in lunch, a nap, and a shopping trip, and spent lots of time breaking in her new art desk (which she so kindly shared with Cece.) We baked a chocolate cake and made… Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Rosie!
Last weekend, we celebrated the birthdays of my nieces Samantha and Michaela. My sister-in-law put together a super sweet Inside Out themed party which I thoroughly enjoyed… possibly even more than my own kids, and they enjoyed it a lot. ^^^ Nine kids just quietly enjoying their snacks.^^^ This is a testament to just how… Continue reading Partying Inside Out Style!
Valentine’s Day turned out being fairly busy so, we don’t have a lot of pics. BUT. We did have some pretty good times. At least initially. In the morning, we had pink pancakes (yes, they were leftovers so they were still festive, just a little dry.) And I made sure the girls woke… Continue reading Valentine’s Day 2015
Last weekend, our sweet and smiley nephew Dominic turned one! We celebrated by living out all of our gymnastics dreams at North Crest Kids Activity Center. It’s really a toss up as to whether the kids or the adults had more fun. I mean, trampolines and foam pits! Don’t be surprised if my 30th birthday… Continue reading Dom turns one!
