I have to say upfront - I don't have any pictures. . . I know not good blogging etiquette! Getting all 6 of us out the door in snow gear is all I'm going to say :) That and our camera is big (dslr) and could easily be hurt - which would not be good. [...]

While I was busy at the table this morning Sophia was happily drawing. She had pulled nearly every sheet of paper out of a pad she found on the shelf. Little monsters and letters. Emmalie and I agreed that the one on the right is a jellyfish, and on the left she wrote "LOL" at [...]

I know that they could have used it though, they have been at each other's throats since 7:30 this morning. Rest time. I'm sure some of you are thinking "What she hasn't been having rest time!?" In my defense - for the last 5 years almost, I have had a baby and a napper, who [...]

Not the blog! Owen :)We have been going back and forth about how to cut his hair for a month or so. . . I finally just grabbed my scissors and went for it! Our girls were bald until they were 2, and never a haircut before 3, and our boy has a full head [...]

More like Cheez-it Monster! Owen loves these crackers and found a way to help himself. I walked into the kitchen (after leaving for 2 minutes) and laughed, then ran for the camera :)He's trying to clean up his mess - isn't that sweet!? Many times I feel that our home is quite small, but I [...]
