Life Lately

Has been anything but ordinary or boring. 

Our house has been full of life that's for sure. If it's not filled with family it's filled with play dates. I've been trying squeeze in a tiny bit of time for some Pinterest projects (hello-- outlet). And we've been working a lot on Adrian's reading and writing while still making time to enjoy our 70 degree weather lately.... Um ya, I can't believe it's December!!! and I'll take it!

Extreme closeup of our almost ONE year old... say what? he was just born, really. It can't be! 

Dad's clone.

They would sit here for days and draw and cut out paper. I am so lucky and happy that our kids love art, coloring, drawing and writing as much as they do. 

I've been enjoying mucho time with my cute niece, Vivian. 
And she's been letting me do this and this to her hair :) fun stuff!!

Teamwork-- the 3 musketeers. I think it was her first time on a trampoline and it took all of 5 minutes for her to love it! 

Kellen showing everyone how it's done. He jumps harder than anyone on this thing.

This is just who Preston is-- patient, caring and considerate. My little lover!

We've been doing a lot of this. 
Running, jumping, laughing-- and playing hard means sleeping hard. Now that is a plus in my book!

Adding a house to the city and a photog shadow of yours truly.

December? I'm certain snow is around the corner, and that's okay :) I think I'm ready.

I can't describe the feeling I get when they're all in these peaceful moments, in their element, enjoying one another, not fighting and instead projecting comradery. On Saturday they were absolutely crazy, non-stop, fighting, loud, obnoxious, not sharing or caring-- THEN, there are days like today that are pretty close to perfect (well, for having this many little ones :) It's the crazy days that make the great days even that much greater! I never take a good day for granted, ever!

Uncle Deggs checking out the artwork.

Mason, more than likely discovering something to put in his mouth that I probably had to fish out 5 minutes later. Our baby goat.

He WAS just born yesterday!
At least that's how it seems.
Just like I can't believe Bitsy is 14 months....and about to walk!
Crazy how quickly time flies.
Everyone looks happy, I hope you find some Mommy time!

Big Hugs,

Great pictures, I know what you mean I love watching them when it's peaceful and they all get along even if sometimes it's rare. It melts my heart to watch them be kind to one another
