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
“My biggest dream come true is my daughter; I’ve wanted her since I was a little girl.” (^^^Shoe credit goes to Grandma Pat!^^^) On my to-do list this summer was to take updated photos of the girls that I could frame, give to grandparents, etc. I finally got around to it this morning! I also… Continue reading Six and Three
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!
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Last weekend we cleaned up ourselves and our house (kind of) and had some family and newborn photos taken! Since Ares arrived, I only had one photo of him, Joe, and myself (which was of me on the operating table) and none of all five of us. This time, I am extremely aware of how quickly… Continue reading Family and Newborn Photos

But first, I just wanted to document the last three life changing-weeks. The above photo was taken the day before Ares was born as I was trying to figure out what… Continue reading May ’17 via iPhone
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn’t carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.” – Stephen King Though I’ve been trying to be ruthless in decluttering and minimizing our belongings in our home this spring, there… Continue reading Raising Booklovers… and a giveaway with Usborne!
Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways. Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we… Continue reading Easter 2017
I’m happy to say that we’ve been out and about these past couple weekends and trying out a few new (to us) places. Now that it’s April and getting a little warmer, I don’t really think I can claim hibernation as my favorite pastime anymore. We recently went to the Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul for… Continue reading Out and About
Hello! It’s spring! (Or so I’m told. I’ll believe it when I see it/feel it/stop shivering/see the sun/etc.) We are only about six weeks away from welcoming baby no. 3 which means that I have been tired, scatterbrained, and not really blogging. (But I totally think about blogging all the time… that counts for something,… Continue reading March via iPhone
