Breakfast Time

I'm not sure what strange thing was happening in the universe this day. Elijah is wearing his pajamas and both girls are dressed. That NEVER happens. Elijah is a bit obsessed with putting on his clothes the very moment he wakes up. The very moment, I tell you. Every night I hear, "And Mom? You pick my clothes out? Yeah, yeah, you do that, and then you pick my clothes out?"

Hmmm. Maybe this was dinner time?

Cozy 'Jamas


Matthew is Four!

The Kirby's know how to keep a party we got to celebrate Matthew's birthday a little after this big boy turned four!Matthew is probably the most athletic kid I know. He's been jumping off this thing practically since he could walk. We're hoping he'll be able to teach Elijah a few things~;-)Mason! I love these kids!

A lot.

Praying. Thanking God!

My kids were mostly excited about the juice boxes. ("And THEN I GET A JUICE BOX!?!?!")

Happy times! We are so thankful for our friends!



On our way home from Pennsylvania, we stopped to see these wonderful children!
We spent a while at my favorite toy store in the entire world. This even beats the one I really liked in Chicago. All their toys are quality toys - cute, durable, able to teach, promoting imagination. Ah, wonderful! They also have some fun things outside.

This is the cutest baby I have ever seen.

This is why every little girl should wear bloomers.
These pictures make me so happy. I can't stop smiling as I look at them. Miles and Polly Jane are sure to be fast friends!

My sister has done a great job with her super fun playroom. Actually, beyond that, her whole house is an inspiration in organization, cuteness, and functionality.
Here is a shot someone snuck of Bella. She and Haven kept "borrowing" each other's shoes.
Sadly, our wonderful visit came to a crashing halt the next morning. I'll spare you the details, but only because I am not gifted enough to convey the horribleness of the experience. It involved vomit from the three oldest members of the family, over eight hours in the car, lots of praying, and lots of Ziplocs. Wow. It was so terrible, even the memory is hard!
