Spring cleaning! Boy clothes 7-10 for sale.

February 25th, 2012 , Posted in Personal

My boys started last spring in 8’s and between then and this winter they shot all the way up to 12’s and show no sign of stopping. Which means I have massive amounts of super nice boy’s clothes for sale. We buy a lot of Abercrombie, Mini Boden, Gap, Crewcuts and H&M. Super cute stuff that would be perfect for anything from everyday/school wear to fancy photo sessions.

I’ve uploaded everything to a flickr page for ease. Comment on the photo if you want to buy the item and then message me for a total.

flashback – February 2011

Still going through old photos here…this could go on forever.

My adorable little chunky monkey getting ready to go outside. She would have been 7ish months here.

She’s stunned by the hat.

One of our “normal” warm days in winter/spring. Look at how brown the grass was after that awful drought.

Just sweet.

She’s not so tiny anymore and it makes me smile and brings tears all at once. She’s talking up a storm, singing, dancing, playing make believe, wanting to dress herself in “pretty soos”, and making all of us fall more in love with her each and everyday.

just around the corner

Just 6 more weeks until it looks like this outside. And you can bet I’m counting down the days.

2011 and 2007 flashback

I was editing this image from last February and remembered a very similar one I took nearly 5 years ago.


And the one from 2007

Flashback February 2011

February 9th, 2012 , Posted in my family, Personal

This time of year when things calm down I like to go back and rediscover all the photos that I never had time to really look at or edit. Sometimes I feel like I’m storing up our memories on my computer. Someday I’ll get them all printed out in an album or book. Right, lol. For now, I’ll share here when I can.

Yes, I occasionally let my children drink coffee. We start them young when we let them dip a finger in our coffee cups and by the time they’re 5 they’re begging for a cup of their own.

So every once in a while I’ll mix a lot of milk with a little coffee and let them think they’re adults.

shower time

My silly girls. This is how Bella takes a shower so that soap doesn’t get in her eyes. And as usual, Lilly really wants to hop in with her. 

They make my heart swell

From the fall…and our Christmas card.

They are my world.

An April (oops, I mean February) morning.

As I got Bella off on the bus this morning I couldn’t help but leave the front door open and let little Miss Lilly come on out and enjoy the absolutely amazing weather. It’s so hard to believe this is really winter with gorgeous weather like this! And the forecast is calling for above average highs 10 days out! What a winter this has been. Although I’m not complaining.

Lilly normally isn’t this dressed up this early in the morning, but she saw Bella putting on a twirly skirt and starting saying “kirt, kirt!!” She had to be like her big sister. And when Bella put her shoes on Lilly went running to find her own shoes. I can foresee that Bella is going to have quite the little shadow over the next few years.

She seems confused as to why I left the door open, lol.

It was so foggy this morning, but as soon as we went outside it started clearing and was gone within 15 minutes.

Watching all the birds flying around.

Silly little cutie.

The last of the fog fading away.
