Calebs Field Trip

We went to the Lichterman Nature Center and had so much fun. I went with Savvy last year and it is such a fun field trip. They are so organized and the kids love it

Candice Shower

We threw Candice a shower at Acre with close friends and family. It was so sweet and filled with love. Most of us have been friends for over 20 years. I love these girls


Our neighborhood egg hunt

And this is the only picture from Easter, and I didn't even take it!!  But this is Norah and Lily they are BFF๐Ÿ’•

Beta Club

Savvy bug got initiated into the Beta club. We are all so incredibly proud of her. 

They had to repeat a creed at the end and Norah Jane stood up, raised her right hand and said it with them๐Ÿ˜‚

Lice hit our home, on a late Saturday night, when Michael was in another state.  My sister in law saved the day and brought everything we needed and 3 hours later this was us. I found it on one but treated us all. 

Oh our gripper... honestly he was neglected and we needed to get him another home. He was a good pet to us but we asked if we could donate him to cohens class and Mrs. Pembleton accepted.  The class has loved him and we actually found out gripper was a girl๐Ÿ˜‚.  Sad to see him go, but glad he has a good home


Savvy is begging to put makeup on anyone willing. Usually it's Norah that accepts, but those lashes ๐Ÿ˜

Michael taught the older 2 how to play poker...trying to raise well rounded children๐Ÿ˜‚

We gave the boys a "bucket of boogers" for Christmas and have just gotten around to using it.  It started out so fun and ended with screaming and tears

Please Lord, let them be best friends always

The Bartlett theater put on Willie Wonka and we went with the Mcdaniel's.   The cast was all kids and they did a good job. The kids loved it, and really loved getting to go on the stage and meet the cast after the show.

One Saturday morning we woke up and I said "let's have a garage sale".  We threw stuff together and made enough money for all 6 of us to see a matinee movie๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Savvy set up her own shop and sold a good bit!

Savvy teaching Norah ๐Ÿ’•

I had to get fingerprinted to chaperone a field trip and we were able to see Norah's prints too

Maggie's Birthday

Maggie's party was at the peabody and was so fancy and fabulous. She was the honorary duck master and then we all had high tea. It was adorable. 
 It was the morning after we got back from Cancun and both boys said "gracias and hola" when talking to people ๐Ÿ˜‚

(Backup) Cancun!

(Backup) Boxes and monogrammed dress

It was a beautiful spring morning, I had just finished making breakfast and I go call Norah to come in and eat, to find her peeing in a container.  I think it must run in the family. Savvy did this exact same thing when she was her age (but it was in her play kitchens sink). Both just did it once, with really no explanation and never spoke of it again 

2 nights she made this bed in the boys room and slept all night 

Cohen and I have been trying to figure out the game Go... we are trying, not sure if we fully understand 

I was consignment shopping and found this dress. We have laughed and laughed. She hates it and I knew she would hate it (I didn't like it, but I couldn't pass up the chance to see this face on her)
