Happy Halloween from Baymax and MOGM! #BigHero6 #MeetBaymax

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween! It's a cold and rainy day here in Michigan but I took the kids to an indoor event earlier today. We also took them Trick-or-Treating last weekend so they've had their fill and won't be going out tonight. We are, instead, having a family movie and pizza night! I just wanted to wish you all a Happy Halloween and hope your little ones are enjoying the day! (If you've not heard about Baymax and Big Hero 6, read about it … [Read more...]

Getting Back to the (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Family Time WW

It's been quite a while since I've posted a Wordless Wednesday. Since Annie's birth things have been busy and I've been adjusting to three little ones. I (sometimes) think I am getting my routine down. ;) I wanted to share some recent pics of the kids and hubby! Top left: Addy and LA at the park last week. They had so much fun and I'm so glad the weather has finally gotten nicer! Top right: Annie on Mother's Day at nearly 3 months old -- yes, … [Read more...]

I Thought my Daughter was Dying

Addy and Elmo

I've been putting off writing this post for several days. I wanted to write it the day after this whole thing happened. I didn't have time. All weekend I didn't have time. Today, I wrote the title and sat and starred at it for some time without writing a word. What I'm trying to figure out is if I really haven't found the time to write it because it's too painful or because I'm just haven't been ready? Today I feel the need to finally get all of … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Such a Joy and Honor

Baking Cookies

It's such a joy and an honor to be the mama of these little ones. I love every day with them. Every minute. Here are a few great captured moments from the past few weeks. . . Our new tradition this year was baking cookies on Christmas Eve and boy oh boy did they have fun! Here's a captured moment of LA enjoying the cookie cutting! <3 And this, my friends...is my little beauty during a special moment of smiles we shared. Her smile … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday: Christmas Tree and One Hat, Two Hat

Christmas Tree

With the way I've been feeling lately I've not gotten much done at all. We typically decorate for Christmas, at the latest, the weekend after Thanksgiving. We JUST got out tree up this past Sunday. Yes, only 10 days before Christmas. I'm so glad it's up though...I love Christmas decorations and I love watching the kids enjoy the lights and all! Here's a pic of the little ones by the tree: Yes, I took it with my iPhone and it was during the … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Halloween


Well, I didn't get around to posting a Wordless Wednesday last week so you get to see the Halloween picture this week! :) We knew the weather was going to be bad. It was rainy and windy so we did not take them our door to door. Not to mention I had to work and didn't get home til 6pm. BUT, we knew they had a party planned at daycare so we wanted to get them some costumes to wear and enjoy. I heard of a $5 costume sale at Old Navy the week … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Little Ones in Firehats

Kids in Fire hats

We went out for lunch last week after LA's s doctor appointment. They place we went to had a fire truck/firefighter theme and the kids' meals came with these fire hats. They loved them. I tried and tried to get a good photo of both of them and failed miserably. They were both tired, hungry and grouchy so that didn't help. Here's what I did get:   … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – My Little Girl

Addy and her camera

Addy is nearly 20 months old. She's very active and intrigued by so many things. One thing she seems to love is the camera...and I don't mean me taking pictures of her with my camera, I mean she wants to hold the camera and do it herself. I took this photo with my phone so not the best quality, but maybe I have a photographer in the making here? And...am I the only mama who recycles big brother's pajamas for a little girl? I'm telling on … [Read more...]

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday – Our News

Blessing #1

Yes, our oldest is 17!! I can't believe I have a baby that is going to be a senior in high school! He has total bed head in this photo but I love it! He wanted me to take his photo with the bunny in the book! ;) This girl is such a joy! Love her to pieces! BUT...she'll no longer be the "baby" of our family...because We are super excited to announce we are expecting baby #4!!! Baby #4 is due the day before I was due with Addy! I joke … [Read more...]

Tuesday’s Tastes on Second Base – A Wrap Up of Our Journey

I just looked up the last post I did for Tuesday's Tastes. It was in May and we were at 15 months of nursing! Reading that post brought tears to my eyes. Addy will be 18 months old soon and I have admitted that I had moments when I was ready for her to wean, however, I wouldn't make that choice for her. I wanted HER to be ready and her to decide when our journey was complete. Since I last wrote about our journey, she's really only nursed a few … [Read more...]

A Return of Wordless Wednesday

Addy sleeping

I've been a bit behind since I went to the Monsters U premiere but I am trying to get back into the swing of things so I am back with a (not so) Wordless Wednesday post today! We were out of town this past weekend and I went to check on Addy during her nap and found my little princess sleeping like this....leg crossed, arms behind her head and I thought it was adorable! Not the best quality pic since it was taken with my phone in a not so … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Hearing Trains


We were at my mama's house this past weekend and my niece was there, too. She is three weeks younger than LA and seeing her with LA and Addy is just precious. They all have a blast and when they heard a train they ran to the door to watch for it! (They can normally see trains in the far back left of this picture when they pass.) I had to snap their picture, they looked too cute! <3 … [Read more...]

On our way home from shopping to find an outfit for the MU premiere we saw this amazing sunset! Had to share! :) And of course, these two always give me fabulous weeks!

Springtime Steps and Outdoor Play with pediped

Springtime pediped shoes

pediped® has become a favorite brand for our little ones. I've worked with pediped® before reviewing shoes for LA, but this time I was thrilled to get some springtime pediped® shoes for Addy, who would be walking outside for the first time! Because they have been fabulous shoes for LA (reliable, sturdy and his have held up so well), I knew I wanted this brand for our baby girl, too. We were sent some adorable brown and pink Originals® for … [Read more...]

A Mother’s Day (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

Lilac Tree

We went back to my hometown for Mother's Day to spend time with my mom. We had a great time and I wanted to share some pics with you from our time there! The lilac tree is something that I always relate to "back home". For as long as I can remember, my mom has had lilac trees in her yard. She's always loved the smell, the colors and I've come to relate them to her and home. <3 Both LA and Addy were off of their schedules while we were out … [Read more...]

Courtney from Joy of Momma Joyner and I haven't been posting every week like this meme originally started.

St Patricks Day in Wordless Wednesday

St Patrick's Day Faces

I am Irish so I, of course, wanted to dress the little ones in adorable St Patrick's Day attire this past weekend! In fact, a few weeks back when we went shopping for their outfits there was one girly outfit and one t-shirt left on the rack. It was meant to be when I saw that the girly outfit was Addy's size and the t-shirt was LA's size! I was thrilled!!!   I wanted to get a great picture of them in their St Patrick's Day outfits. … [Read more...]
