Emerson’s Birthday Table!
Of course she wanted PINK!
Inside this one- a Strawberry Shortcake doll! They still smell like they did when I was little.
I’m still hoping to do a faces-of-five series with her! (remember faces-of-four??)
My love. FIVE!!!!
Happy Hour around here means unlimited sunshine, crackers and vintage coloring books at the park!
Hooray for any kind of snow we can get. Inside! Outside! LOVE IT ALL!
I eventually got our Christmas snow flakes all hung up. I guess they are more like Valentine’s Day snowflakes now!
Look who just turned THREE years old!
Blaise’s Favorite Songs at Three:
I Used to Work in Chicago (he is singing that one here!)
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Kooka Beara Sits in the Old Gum Tree
If Blaise were to write a song today it would be about:
P B & Js
songs & story time
cuddles & kisses
chocolate milk & yogurt
You are the song of my heart.
No matter what you do, who you become or what happens in this world
I will always be your number one fan.
I love you,
Time to kiss SUMMER goodbye!!
No more tree huggin days!!
Goodbye hot hot nights.
Farewell first moments of learning to ride a two wheeler!
Ta-ta ice cream truck delights!
pink tutu swimsuit
tiny pool splashin
days of summer!
WELCOME FALL! So glad you are at our door step!
TODAY was her special day! First day of preschool is a pretty big deal around here. Emerson was so excited last night. She had her outfit carefully selected and wanted to to make sure we would wake her extra early for her BIG (2 hours and 15 minutes) school day!!
These moments are so precious.
Yes, I even snapped a picture of her dirty little sneaks. Maybe she’ll appreciate this in 20 years! I know I will!
We are immensely fortunate to have loving and amazing teachers for our kiddos. I absolutely believe that teachers are true heroes in our world. I am so thankful that my children have the opportunity to learn in such beautiful environments. Perhaps the real heroes are HIGHSCHOOL teachers! I can’t even imagine. I once substituted in a highschool physics class and it was an experience to remember. Lets just say my teaching tricks didn’t work so well with 17 year olds!
I got Mason’s back to school shots today too!! Who said we have to get ”the shot” on the FIRST DAY!? My goal is to get a back-to -school within the first month of school. :) He is LOVING first grade.
Of coures this little fella didn’t want to be left out of the picture action! If big brother or big sister are up to something he has got to give it a try too. I can’t believe he is going to be a “BIG BROTHER” so soon!!!
I hope your back-to-school days are going GREAT!
“I am a child of God.
I am a beautiful and powerful human being because God not only made me,
but has shared something of His precious divinity with me.
I am good enough.”
I can’t believe it has been an entire year since since he started kindergarten!
Tomorrow is the big day!
This year will be Mason’s very first FULL day of school. He is over-the-moon excited. I am so thrilled for him, but it’s going to be a lot for my little heart to handle.
