Picture of the Week: Growing Up

We took the boys to one of the local malls on New Year’s Eve, just to get out of the house for a little while. The big kids had some Christmas money (neither ended up getting anything that day), and the little kids just like to be in exciting places.

We didn’t end up spending a lot of money that day (those are the best trips to the mall, yes?), but we did get the little kids each a ride on the indoor Ferris wheel. There were only three kids riding at that time (my two boys plus one little girl), so the boys had to be split up into separate carriages. I was a little nervous letting Dragonfly ride essentially all by himself, but he did great. He was super excited about being up there, and he behaved perfectly. I needn’t have been worried.

Picture of the Week: It’s Mine

Earlier this week, the bigger boys had ballet rehearsal (they’re gearing up for a performance next weekend). The ballet studio we use is pretty far from where we’re living right now (we’ll be moving closer mid to late summer), so I stay in town while they’re at class. This week, I took the two little boys to the park while we were waiting. They had loads of fun, but the funniest thing was Dragonfly. We brought a sippy cup of water for him because it was really hot that day, and every time he came down the slide, I asked him if he wanted me to hold his cup. He would pull it away from me and say “Mine!” (although when he says it, it sounds more like “Mah!”) and then head up the stairs again, tightly clutching his cup. He was so cute climbing and sliding with that cup held so close. 🙂

Pictures of the Week: iPad Fun

The past few weeks have been crazy for us. About six weeks ago, our landlord told us he was selling our house, so we had to move. It’s been a frenzy of making plans and packing boxes since then, but we’ll finally settle into our new normal next week.

In the meantime, here’s a brief update on what’s been going on. 

The contractors that the landlord hired to replace the siding on the house cut our internet line, and the internet provider wasn’t terribly concerned with getting a tech to the house in a timely manner, so we canceled our service – hence the lack of activity here this week.

Will was tired of replacing our cheap Android phones every few months, so he upgraded us both to an iPhone 7. Our new service also came with an iPad apiece, so we’ve had fun learning the new system.

Here are a few funny pictures that we’ve taken using the new iPad.

Have a wonderful, Christ-centered Easter!

Blessings,

Video of the Week: Dancing Baby

We spent a Monday evening a couple of weeks ago doing family movie night with one of Will’s and my favorite movies from our teen years: That Thing You Do! It’s such a great movie, and even a music non-lover like me really enjoys the songs along with the movie. Dragonfly loved dancing every time any of the songs would start – he was so cute!

Picture of the Week: Poor Sick, Unhappy Baby

Dragonfly sick

This week has been one of illness in our family. Poor Dragonfly picked something up at church (I wish people would keep their kids home when they’re sick! We do.). He always ends up with back-to-back colds, it seems. He’s sick for a few days or a week, then he gets a day or two of health, and then he’s sick again right away. He’s currently on the second round of colds (this time). Here’s hoping it goes away soon and he stays healthy for a while.

Picture of the Week: Static!

When I came home from the hospital after Dragonfly’s birth in 2015, I was surprised to find a living room set. Will had spent a reasonable amount of time while I was in recovery working out the details for purchasing and moving furniture (sofa, loveseat, and two tables) into our home. (Before this, we had two chairs, which wasn’t very conducive to having company over.) We have loved having the furniture, but it does have one downfall: it holds static electricity very well. Dragonfly’s hair in this picture shows just how much.

Picture of the Week: Snow Ballet

It’s not actually snowy where we live anymore, but these pictures show a really fun time that Small Fry and I had back when it was white. We’d just finished building a snowman together, and he wanted to practice some of the ballet moves that Seahawk had taught him (before he’d started taking his own class, which began in mid-January). It ended up looking like he was just doing jumping jacks. But he was having a blast, and that’s the most important thing!

Have a great weekend.
