Day 6- August 6th

You know you’ve been wanting to make a video like this too…. :)

Lazy President’s Day

We had a lazy President’s Day today because I didn’t feel great. But at least it was a good day to feel sick. I talked the kids into spending the day in bed with me writing books. They would give me the text to write, then they would illustrate the story. They all have quite the imagination. Lila didn’t want me to take any pictures of her, but I snuck one in anyway. She is also keeping her story a secret until she is finished.

Max wrote his take on “Brown Bear, Brown Bear”. His book is called “Blue Horse, Blue Horse”. And let me tell you, it is the creepiest blue horse you’ve ever seen. (It sort of looks like Conan)

He was deep in thought about what color/animal to choose next. I love the way he bites his nails and crosses his little legs.

Chloe wrote a book titled “The Lion Saw A Duck”. Cliffnotes version: The lion sees a duck who ends up being poisonous (he has red stripes) and the duck chases the lion home. The exhausted lion just wants some warm soup and hot cocoa and offers the duck some instead of eating him.”

Note the green smoothie on her face.

This is all I could get out of Cole before he just wanted to scribble on the sheets.


I can’t get him to keep looking at me. But he’s still adorable.

Why Hello Again!

It’s been a very long while since I posted last. How did I forget about you, Blog? I don’t know. Maybe it was the pregnancy. (Posts to come about Cole? Probably…) Maybe it was the Mom-ing, Wife-ing, designing, PTA-ing and everything else-ing. But here I am again. What brings me back? Adorable videos of my girls dancing at their recital for a dance clinic they took from the local High School drill team. They had a blast and the drill team earned some money! Win win for everyone!

Big Girl, Tiny Bed

Chloe has graduated from her crib to a new toddler bed. Who knew such a tiny bed could make her such a big girl? She loves it! Thanks Chelsea!

Happy New Year!/(Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Ok, ok, I know it’s already the 7th. But I’m just finally get back to normal after all the holiday/end of year madness!! And just to show you that it’s going to be another crazy year, I’ll post a pic of Boo’s favorite new outfit. Happy Nude Year!

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. I laughed so hard, I cried!

A few weeks ago, Bug was playing “The Spelling Game” with Grandma B. Grandma was giving her words to spell and she would write them out on a piece of paper. She did some easy words -  For, Mom, Love, etc. She was quietly writing her own word on the paper and she proudly held up PISS. I scolded her and said “We shouldn’t write that word!” She looked at me confused and said, “Pizza? Is pizza a bad word?” I looked at Grandma B and busted up laughing. We definitely had a good laugh.

Oh, kids… :)


It has begun…

Bubba has started “The Scoot”. Time to break out the stair gate.
