I wish I slept this comfortably (and cutely) each night!
Our sweet, full-of-energy Lab puppy Sally was totally willing to hang out with J and serve as a pillow/video game buddy.
Man’s Kid’s best friend, indeed!
*This is just a teeny tiny portion of our bricks. When I say we love LEGO, we love LEGO.
Baby E says: Look to your favorite things for style inspiration. For example, if you need a hat, a baby doll makes a unique fashion statement.
I love free activities for the kids, so I can’t believe we hadn’t attended one of the Lowe’s kids workshops until this past weekend. C & J loved building their birdhouses, and couldn’t get over that they’d used real nails and built something almost entirely by themselves. They also each got an apron, and a birdhouse patch for me to iron on. We’ll definitely be going to more of these!
Happy 18 months, E!
I take LOTS of pics of my kids, baby E included. I posted this photo of her to Facebook the other day:
But of course, as parents know, the posted photo is very rarely the only photo taken. I usually take 5 photos to get the one I end up using. So, I thought today I’d show the photos I took leading up to E’s smile. I actually like them all, but of course I am her mom. :)
This past Saturday I did The Color Run with a group and we had a blast! It really is a happy 5K, and I’d highly recommend giving it a try if it comes to an area near you!
My gear – the black packet is filled with colored powder.
Me and two of my friends, all clean before the race!
I can’t even begin to tell you how crowded it was there – there were thousands of people ahead of us, and this is the view behind us as we waited in the starting chute.
I love blue!
Me, post-race and pre-party:
Me and my friend Kristi – she had already gone to the after-party:
Color!! This part was so fun – they played great music and every 5 minutes or so they’d have everyone toss color in the air.
This is what my mother-in-law looked like after the party:
And here’s me:
Can’t wait to do this one again next year!
I knew when I married Brian that I was blessed with a wonderful guy; we’d dated 5 years at that point. But when we had J back in 2007, I also learned what an amazing father I’d chosen for my kids. He, of course, is great with all three of them (the boys think he is the coolest), but I thought for today’s Wordless Wednesday I’d share some father-daughter pics. This little girl loves her daddy, and boy does he love her!
Wonder why I haven’t been posting as much this past week?
We’ve been a little busy…. introducing baby E, born September 5! :)
We held off on getting a full-fledged minivan, buying a Mazda 5 in 2010 as a compromise. But now that we’ll soon have 3 kiddos, it was pretty much inevitable we’d need something bigger. Well, I felt that way, and Brian either agreed or got tired of hearing me talk about it. :) Regardless, we traded in the Mazda for a Toyota Sienna on Saturday. And, well, I kinda love it. I think Brian might, too.
