Wordless Wednesday...Beautiful Girl

Tuesday, August 19, 2014


We celebrated little M's family day a couple Fridays ago... the husband took off from work, and we went to the Naval museum (little M was interested in seeing a periscope) for the morning.

Little M has been planning her family day activities all year long...

She had a very specific plan, and she knew exactly what she wanted to do for dinner.

She was a huge fan of the big guns, as well. That's my girl...

She pretended to shoot down some planes, and then we visited the periscope one last time.

Then we headed to build a bear...

Little M has talked about this all year. She is so funny... she didn't want to do this for her birthday or her half birthday, just for her family day.

She chose a panda, and baby J chose a puppy. The four of us discussed it, and together we chose a pink bear for tiny P. We made wishes for little M and put mini hearts in her panda, and then we headed off to Matchbox for dinner. Little M declared it the best family day celebration ever!

One Week...

And just like that, Summer is over...

And the school year is upon us, and I am already sad about it...

Because one week from today, this girl will start first (FIRST!) grade.

And this boy will start preschool.

Am I ready for this?

No. No, I am not.  One more week...I am off to smother my babies with kisses before they head off.

Sunday... Family

Other things may change us, but we start and we end with family. ~ Anthony Brandt

Waiting For Tiny P...

Last week we took our "expecting" pictures... I am very excited about them, and I am excited for you to see them!

A Getaway...In Pictures

We are enjoying time away this week... lots of playing in the sun and sand, fun in the water, and spending time with good friends. We are loving the lake!
