Sometimes they fall asleep on our sled-walk home from Anne’s. Yes, it’s only two-and-a-half blocks. Sometimes they wear their blankets as scarves and mufflers. Yes, we have undesired, real scarves at home. Sometimes they feed each other. Yes, they’re quite capable on their own. Sometimes they fight; sometimes they hug. Yes, they’re siblings.
We do lots of cooking, somersaulting, feeding stuffed monkeys, and nap time exalting. (Oh wait, that might just be me.)
Thankfully, our basement once looked like this with very little effort. Sadly, it no longer does. Thankfully, last Thursday we had a giant rainstorm, signifying the coming end of a long winter. Sadly, much of the rain and melting snow found its way in our basement. Thankfully, James had not yet used his Christmas Lowe’s […]
Pigtails peeking over cart. Big kid pony, stabbing eggs an art. Borrowed boots to clash her dress. I love Jaeda Jane the best.
Who is this toddler, and what has she done with my baby?! Also, very grateful for borrowed skinny jeans (I can barely contain my giggling every time I look at her adorableness!) and vibrant sweatshirt. Ack, I just can’t stand it! Obviously, my focus is way out of whack (‘cuz what mom in her right […]
Veggie Tales has been a smash hit in our house these last few weeks. Also. Jaeda is watching them waaaay before Corban ever started. #secondchildsyndrome But look at those two. Plus their preferred tv-watching companions–a dump truck and George. (Have I mentioned that Corban has now taken to sleeping with cars?? Not squishy stuffed animal cars. […]
I thought whole chickens were difficult to cook. I thought whole chickens were disgusting. I thought whole chickens would demand too much time. And then I tried it. And I found out whole chickens are easy just regular meat (aside from a few stray feathers, shiver) and so quick to prepare (let your crockpot do […]
I’ve vowed to clean under the couch for several months now. Corban gets very concerned for his lost items and is convinced they all escape to this dusty region of our house. Apparently, he was right. It took my Bible falling down there for me to make good on my word, but boy, did we ever […]
One for the pigtails. Two for the cheese. Three for the stare. And “Take a picture of ME, please!” Four for the pointing. “See, see, see?!” Five for the feeling of the tongue, what could it be? Six for the smashing of the cardboard sword. And seven for the chasing, which makes us never bored. […]
I say if it’s gonna be cold, I want it to snow. Hate to waste all those freezing temps on dead grass and naked trees. But snow–snow makes everything more beautiful. And this snow made our whole town a winter wonderland. Don’t get me wrong; I’ll be ready for spring in a few months. But […]
