1: We saw some amazing miracles this week-primarily-Kyle got offered a job that’s better than we dared hope for! I’m 100% confident that it was because of the prayers others offered on our behalf. We have felt so loved and blessed. ❤️
And 2: our cat, Clipsy, had kittens last month. And everyone’s are obsessed. You’re not supposed to name animals you aren’t going to keep. But Minnie, Moana, Grumpkins, Bob, Catalina, and Dwane “the kitty” Johnson pretty much named themselves.
Last night, we went back to @aztec_dahlias so I could personally snap a ‘Then vs. Now’ photo of the babies (check out my Insta stories for the ‘Then’ photo) and it was mayhem 🙈. The babies were like rockets running between the aisles of flowers and full on wiggle worms once in my lap. Caden even bit Rowan on the back! Greyson was tripping and falling. I was constantly running back and forth between the camera and my spot, adjusting the settings, the composition. At one point, Chad corralled both babies and walked back towards me with both babies in his arms. Of course, Rowan tried to wiggle away but ended up sideways and thus became our moment. A photo that represents the wildness and fun of our lives. The ‘Now’ photo. Just wasn’t the photo I was anticipating 🤦🏼♀️.
What do you call a little bee who is very close to taking his first steps?
Ans. A babee!🐝🤣
Some flower picking after the mass today 💞🌻 •
Fall has come in with a gusto around here, just as promised! It has been the most amazing weather lately and all I want to do is go out into those coveted fall tones

William Michael | 3 years and 7 months | Definitely a big boy all the way (just ask him). Thankfully also still a mama’s boy ☺️ He is loving “preschool” with Alisha at home and play dates with his friends! He Loves riding his bike and has shown everyone who will watch how he can ride his little pedal bike now. He marches into dance class with his sister as teacher’s helper, and loves to order his own food at restaurants “I would like a lem-aide please!” Still loves his paci and Parker for nap and at night. Still peaks his head out from the top of the stairs to see if we are in bed yet, and still prefers to sleep right between us. Thankful for the little reminders that you really are still little ❤️
Does anybody have any brilliant ideas on what creative things might be done with the red radio flyer trycicle? My kids have one of these too that is not in use and I am thinking it would be awesome to maybe incorporate it somehow into my garden?
Monday. A day to write that list, get organised, eat something else than chips and wine for dinner and to tackle the mountain of washing currently screaming my name through the shut door into the laundry. But also a day to walk out into the garden and smell the blossoming peach tree and dream of summer. Have a lovely start to the week everyone 🍃
I thought I had finally gotten my act together and finished up a gallery wall only to realize the photos I had printed are over a year old and none of them have our sweet boy in them. Hard to believe just over a year ago we were keeping the biggest secret during that little photo shoot and now in just 38 days we’ll be celebrating his 1st birthday!!!
Going through summer photos has got me 😭 ...miss my beautiful girl while she’s in school all day. And I may or may not already be in the school pick up line waiting to pick my babies up only 30 minutes early. Summer you were good, but way too short.
