Cheers to the new year! So many good things are upon us, I can feel it! But first, a 2018 recap. The highlights, the good photos, etc. before we are in full 2019 mode! Probably the most significant thing we did last winter was adopt Zuzu. She has been such a weird and wonderful addition… Continue reading 2018 in Review
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” Fall? What fall? Life is zooming by, and I feel like the seasons aren’t even taking turns right now. Over here we went from 90 to 55, as if the weather saw a state trooper. Now… Continue reading September & October 2018
Oh hey! I just wanted to quick pop in and do a July and August recap now that it’s nearly September and the 2/3 of the kids in this house will be in school in less than two weeks. So, let’s go back to the 4th of July! We lived that good cabin life with… Continue reading July + August 2018
Hi everyone! We just returned from a long weekend up north at the cabin. As per usual, I have lots of pictures of our kids and their cousins, but no grown-ups. So although it may appear that these kids were all running around unsupervised, I assure you they were all kinds of supervised.… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend 2018
Happy first birthday Ares! We celebrated our little man’s numero uno birthday yesterday with a Cinco de Mayo fiesta! I don’t think you can say you’ve experienced a truly crazy Cinco de Mayo until you have hosted a first birthday at your house for tons of little kids complete with cupcakes, a waterslide, and general… Continue reading Ares’s First Birthday Fiesta!
Happy Holidays from our family in Hudson! I feel as though this December flew by faster than any other year. I hope you have been enjoying your families, all of the festive traditions, and of course, the holiday food! We’ve gotten around to most of our usual holiday activities and have adopted a few… Continue reading The Christmas rush is through… almost?
At the beginning of December, my whole family humored me and allowed me color coordinate our outfits and take them out hiking in the woods for the sake of family photos. Fortunately, the afternoon was warm and we got some genuine smiles out of the kiddos. And since Ares hadn’t yet turned officially seven months… Continue reading Family Photos 2017
Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one. After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,… Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
So winter has come barging in on fall’s territory with quite the attitude! I’m deeming the merge of the two seasons as “finter.” (I’ve checked. It’s a thing. Or at least a hashtag) The above photo was taken the day after Halloween. Nice, right? Even though low temps and the occasional snow have kind of… Continue reading “Finter” Fun
I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year. Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All
