One more because she’s gorgeous and her small shop handmade costume was perfect 😍 I really wanted a classic Cinderella dress that resembled the 1950’s version. Something elegant but without all the glitter so I messaged the sweet lady that made our Alice costume last year and boy did she deliver ❤️
Well hello fall 🍂 You showed up overnight! Guys my boys were in shorts yesterday and wore winter coats to school this morning 😱 Is anyone else experiencing drastic weather changes? Since it was so nice though we decided a morning walk was in order and if you can’t tell someone was super excited 😄
We finally got family photos taken for the first time in 6 years! They all turned out so wonderfully and we had to take them now because..... We love having a big family so much that we decided to add a little more love to it in 2019 ❤️
This man right here stole my heart nearly 12 years ago and has had it ever since 💕 I love him for everything thing he is but I love watching him with our children and seeing the love they have for each other!
Today this absolutely perfect little squish turns 6! I’m so proud of him but not ready for him to be big! This isn’t my first or even second this is my third baby so I know like it or not he will and must grow! That won’t stop me from praying that he doesn’t grow too fast though 😭
The kids have been waiting for the Crabapples to be ripe enough for Crabapple Jelly and the day has finally come! So we are spending this lovely day off outside adventuring with our boys in another amazing @sweet_as_april bonnet! Also realizing I need to buy her some bolder colored @hayvakidsco necklaces 🙈
So I did a thing yesterday 🙈 I decided very last minute to get a hair cut. What was supposed to be 7” cut off ended up being more 😱 but I don’t think I mind it! My hair hasn’t been this short in 5 years but it will definitely take less time to fix 😬
Ok one more summer photo because it’s hot and she’s cute! The kids found my old collection of beanie babies last week and she decided this little flamingo was hers 💗 No judging you all know you had them too 😂 After having 3 boys I started selling things of mine my parents had kept but I saved a few. Seeing her play with things I spent countless hours entertaining myself with as a child is a dream come true 😊
Does anyone else have a terrible time getting their older kids to take pictures with them 🤔 It’s like I’ve just asked them to do the impossible 😂 BUT I am determined to have more pictures with these guys before they get too big because boy are they growing fast!
So I was chatting with someone on Instagram last night about “real” photos. We are all guilty of wanting that perfect photo sometimes but there is something to be said about the real ones! The ones that aren’t perfect, that might not have everyone smiling or maybe they aren’t all looking! Yet somehow they manage to truly capture everyone’s personality and really cement that memory in your mind! I have posted plenty of “perfect” photos but typically when I ask my boys for a “nice” picture this is what I really get 😂😂😂 This is not what I asked for! I told them all to smile and look at the camera 🤦🏻♀️ Instead you can tell that my oldest is never serious, my youngest son is oblivious to what’s going on around him 90% of the time and my middle son laughs at EVERYTHING!!! So here’s to the real photos because these are REALLY how my babies are ❤️
Well I officially have a 5th grader, 3rd grader and a kindergartner! The older two said they were to old to be walked in and just hopped out of the car and ran in 😩 I did get to walk Gavin to class but then he panicked and didn’t want me to leave! Fortunately he’s in the most wonderful and capable hands! We have been blessed to have the same kindergarten teacher for all 3 boys 💕 Even with a classroom full of kids she still takes time to tend to each individual child’s needs ❤️ She held his hand and walked him to the library to calm him down and show him all the wonderful things he will get to do at school! She did all this when she didn’t have to and on a day that I know she had her plate full but because she did the only tears shed this morning were mine 😭 Charlotte of course ran over to take a first day of school picture too ❤️
