Seriously? A beautiful new playground, and they’re still playing in the dirt.
After nearly two years of a photo a day, Miles has had enough. “Put the camera down, Mommy!”
It being All Saints Day, and seeing as I work for a Catholic organization, we got the day off. I love having this day off, but it’s not like I got to sleep in or anything. I still had to bring the boys to school. So after I dropped them off, I stopped by my friend’s restaurant and had a cup of tea. I was sitting by the window on this gorgeous morning, the server brought me the paper…ahhh, it was heavenly. If only I could start every day this way!
Happy Halloween from my crew!
I mean, seriously? How awesome is this picture? Doesn’t it look like my uncouth boys are catcalling and harassing the pretty princess Chloe? Love.
I spent a lot of Saturday taking photos (I did a family photo shoot for a friend that I’m very happy with) but this one, just taken with my cell phone, is worth remembering. Oliver was telling great-grandpa Sam about Thomas. It can take the boys a while to warm up to people they don’t see very often (and even people they do) so I was happy they finally did with Grandpa Sam.
A cold front rolled in, and I love how you can see it getting colder.
(I know, lame, right? But I didn’t see the boys after they went to school, so this is what you get.)
Does this look like a menacing gang of tricycle-riding thugs, or what?
(Darn those dimples for ruining the effect!)
I know I need to get Oliver to stop sucking his thumb, but…it’s so cute. Sigh.
Can you guess what George has been teaching the boys about?
Was playing around with slow shutter speeds and the flash and got this fun/freaky shot.
My sweet Andrew. My sister and her family came to Kiki’s house for (yes, homemade) breakfast so I could see Emily and And-a-woo (as the boys call him). 8 months old and so so so sweet!
One of the awesome benefits of having Kiki as a best friend is the meals she cooks for you when you come to her house. Maybe it helps that we live 1000 miles apart. So yeah, those coffee-marinated bison short ribs, the smoked gouda mashed potatoes, and the spinach souffle were all for ME ME ME!
Look who I ran into in D.C.? My sissy!
Staying at a nice hotel in Virginia for work. So nice to have a bathroom all to myself, no sharing with three little boys who, I have to say, do not have the best aim.
