 Pretty: At our house pretty is mostly just cute!

Crawling babies.

Climbing their Mamas

Smiling their sweet smiles and batting those lashes! *Sigh*

Trying to get the camera.

Showing off their new pearly whites!

And their squishy little baby tongues!

Generally looking cute as a button.

And big girls who REFUSE to nap, and would rather help mom in the kitchen.

This is pretty at 3pm but by 5 when the 2 year old meltdowns begin it is all too REAL!

Then you wind up with tired eyes and crazy hair and one crabby family.

Happy: Kids trapped indoors for days with a big toy filled basement to run in.

Playing dolls.

Runs. Not those runs! The runs where you do one race right after another until you collapse in exhaustion, except that you are three so there is no such thing as exhaustion and you just KEEP GOING!!!

Chasing each other with beach balls?!!

Another cute blur baby in the foreground.

More running.

Funny:  Matthew (almost 4) got a hold of the camera the other day and decided to take a few pictures by himself.

Selfie #1

Selfie #2

He even got this good shot of his sister!  I can't believe how well this one turned out!

Real:  Babies apparently don't like to ride in make believe boats with their brother and sister!

"Um, Mom, are you gonna leave me in here?"

"I don't think I like the open sea."

"Seriously, Get me outta here!"

First Snow Day Comes Early

Only November here in KY but we are having our first snow day today!  School was cancelled and today is a bonus day with Daddy!

Here is what we did after breakfast!

Snow Angels

Look Mom, I did it!

Emma wasn't sure she wanted to lie back all the way!

Here is her attempt at an Angel.

Running in the snowy front yard.

Emma said, Mom it's hard to run in the snow!

Eeeek. Not sure what I think about this cold Mom!

Fun with Snow Dog! 

Hey where did he go?

Oh here he comes.

I love snow days.

Crazy Dog!

Happy Monday Y'all!!  Hope it is as much fun as ours!

Fall 2014

Last week we were enjoying weather like this.

Yard Cleaning.

Leaf Raking.

Lawn Mowing.




The view from the park.

Narnia's Lamp Post.

This week....

Ugh cold, indoor, no one is getting enough of their ya-ya's out, weather!
Luckily we got these fall snapshots of the kids before winter set in.
