I’m still in disbelief that our girls are this big and this old, but Cece and Rosie began third grade and kindergarten this week. Cece started school this Tuesday and Rosie just boarded the bus for her first day of kindergarten this morning. I’m really glad they were cooperative and willing to take first-day pics.… Continue reading First Days of School 2019
Summer has promptly packed up her bags and has strutted out of here in style. The month of August felt like one last glorious chance to do a lot of our favorite things (Such as visit the cabin and go for rides on Grandpa’s boat as pictured above). Here are some of the highlights! Even… Continue reading August 2019 Recap
A couple weekends ago our family had a unique opportunity to meet Sparky the Unicorn and have some photos taken with him! Originally I had only signed up Rosie for photos, but upon actually seeing Sparky, Cece changed her decision about declining photos with Sparky and barged jumped into the shoot too. All of our… Continue reading Photos with Sparky the Unicorn
This week (on a seriously perfect day), I packed up the kids and a picnic lunch to visit Fawn-Doe-Rosa. This may have been one of our nicest days all summer…There was essentially no whining, fighting, major injuries, hunger, or complaining. I kind of didn’t know what was happening. The kids and myself had a fantastic… Continue reading Fawn-Doe-Rosa
Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a… Continue reading July 2019
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!
I feel like summer has barely begun, but somehow, we are already one-third of the way through it. And the days are on their way to being darker and shorter again… eek. That’s not very glass-half-full of me to say, but I think it puts into perspective how brief and beautiful this time of year… Continue reading June 2019
Hey everyone! Happy Memorial Day weekend! It’s pretty thrilling to be on the brink of summertime, isn’t it? I’ve been a busy bee, but I definitely wanted to take a moment and gather up all things spring from the past two months and do a little life update à la iPhone photos. So here are… Continue reading April & May 2019
On April 30th, Ms. Cecelia Ray Gaetz turned eight! It was over a week ago, but I am currently still processing this milestone. What’s she like at eight-years-old? She can be frequently found zooming around our neighborhood on her rollerblades, snuggling with our dog Princess Zuzu, reading Dog Man and Junie B. Jones books under… Continue reading Happy 8th Birthday, Cece!
It sure feels good to see the mountains of snowbanks finally melted and being on the verge of opening our windows and wearing flip-flops again. Spring, you rascal, you never arrive a moment too soon! Before I quickly end up six months behind in posting, I’d like to give a recap of the past two… Continue reading February & March 2019
