So today ended up being awfully sweet. Joe and I have been trying to plan once-a-month “dates” with the girls. Last month he went on an outing with each of the girls (both of them chose Chuck E. Cheese.) This time Cece and I got to go out for a few hours just the two… Continue reading Mother Daughter Date!
At the end of summer, Joe and I were thrilled to discover that we were expecting another baby. We visited the doctor, saw and heard a heartbeat, made plans, managed morning sickness, told our girls, and began sharing our news with friends and family. Sadly, six weeks ago on October 26, my doctor confirmed what… Continue reading Our 4th Pregnancy
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
Back at the beginning of summer, I took my own advice and I got in some photos with my kids! We had a mini session with Patty Schmitt Photography. The girls got to have an epic dress up experience and everyone cooperated for twenty minutes of photos. Best Mother’s Day gift I’ve given myself ever!… Continue reading Mamahood at it’s Shiniest

I’m on a blogging roll this week and today I might (just might) finally get one of my monthly happenings blog posts complete in a timely manner. So! May! How great was that? It’s been… Continue reading The Marvelous Month of May
Good morning and happy Sunday! It’s been awhile since I took out my camera and just snapped a few photos of my own kids around our house. So on Thursday morning I did just that. And then I made the photos black and white because black and white = artsy. And I really want all… Continue reading A Monochrome Morning
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! Today I bring you the latter half of summer. It has come to my attention that even with the hot weather, I can’t deny summer’s end. It’s the end of September, Cece has already been back to school for well over a month, and there’s pumpkin spice coffee creamer in our refrigerator. So,… Continue reading Summer Happenings 2.0
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
Ares turned one-month old this week! It’s been a whole lot of eat, sleep, grow, repeat. He loves being held but doesn’t love being naked or his carseat (or shopping ) very much. He’s filling out and getting longer and I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t cram him into NB size clothes or diapers after this week… Continue reading Ares at One Month
