Hanging on a Moment

I have difficulty living in the moment. I don’t carpe diem very well. And I certainly struggle when asked to go with the flow. I’m much better at planning moments than I am at enjoying them. In fact, I think I’d actually prefer to plan things for other people to enjoy. I don’t know why…

My Girl Likes To…

…potty all the time! These photos have not been altered. It is in fact, our little ladybug, sitting on actual toilets, sans screaming. It only took three days and a bag of jelly beans to get this girl out of her diapers. I’m hoping this, combined with her love of Tramp Stamps, isn’t going to…

Tramp Stamp

When you’re sweet little girl looks at you like this…  And asks for this… You give in. Then you swear you’ll never tell anyone about it. But you post it on your blog anyway…because OMG it’s hilarious! It’s Wednesday, so you know I’m linking up with iPPP!

Making Christmas

It’s been almost a week since my last post and I apologize for my neglect. We’ve been so busy “Making Christmas” I just haven’t been able to make time to write. I am hoping to be able to post little things during the next few weeks but am making no promises. I still haven’t finished…

Set Adrift On Memory Bliss

Linking up with these wonderful ladies!

Eight is Enough

My baby boy is eight years old. My firstborn. My Asher. Oh. My. Heart. He’s riding a bike and tying his shoes. He’s taking the bus to school and having sleep overs. He’s losing his teeth and trading his baby face for boyish good looks. He’s still waking up before me, but he now makes…

Like Mother, Like Daughter

A while ago I posted about how Elijah, while a wonderful photographer, can’t seem to take any pictures that illuminate the beauty of his lovely wife. Recently we discovered that Amelia has inherited my trait for being just as unphotogenic. I am so sorry baby girl but it’s not all that bad. It just means…

Funny Odd, Or Funny Ha Ha?

The kids are both really into knock, knock jokes right now. Given their age difference, it’s pretty much the only thing they have in common to talk about. Our various car rides and dinner conversations usually involve a seemingly never ending, yet always hilarious, retelling of the same three jokes. The first two are Asher’s…

Don’t Blink, You Might Miss Something

I had wanted to add just one more Vegas post and this week’s iPhone Photo Phun is the perfect opportunity. I’m both a little proud and ashamed to say that I really didn’t miss my family much while on my girl’s trip. I think Elijah was slightly put out by that and there were times…

To Market, To Market

The weather yesterday was amazing! After 70+ days of over 100 degree weather we finally got a taste of Fall. The temps hovered around 80 and we had a nice cool breeze. It was the perfect day for an Austin outing. We met some friends and had dinner at Central Market, which is essentially a…
