I've been working on a quiet book for the boy howdy hoping it might help in our summer travels. One of the pages is Mr. Potato Head dress up. Boy howdy sort of plays with the page but mostly he just likes to wear the mustaches himself. I'm okay with it. They make for entertaining pictures.

Matthew titles this one "It'sa me Mario"

The Faces of My Cheeks


Oh how I love this little girl. Like the Wee Boy, I find I take a lot of pictures when she is immobile. My favorites are her giggles and this funny snorting-type face. It almost looks frightening. Like she's going to come and give you what's coming to you. Eek.
Ok, that's it, thanks for the indulgence.

Bluebell Photo Opportunity

Like my strawberry experience last summer or the pumpkin patch last fall, for years I watched friends post all their beautifully posed children in beautifully picturesque settings. It looked so cute and fun and I yearned for my own beautifully posed children. Then I had my children and made friends with a woman with a fancy camera who luckily enough also has a inclination for taking pictures of children who aren't her own. And now I get my wish. Look at those little faces. Even boy howdy hunched over in my lap is still super cute. Little Cheeks was in happy form with her big blue eyes and adorable smile. Wee Boy was surprisingly less inclined to be photographed hence my presence in the pictures, but that's okay, I kind of want my babies to remember what their mama looked like when they were little.

Funny side note. Like my previous post, Wee Boy has a thing for ties these days. When I gave him the option on which tie to wear, he wanted both. So for most of the day, before we headed to the park, he wore both his ties (even during naptime). Thankfully I managed to get one off for pictures without any drama.

My Business Baby

Wee Boy's face absolutely lit up when I agreed to let him wear his tie to bed. It might not be the most ideal of bedtime accessories but that is one battle I am not remotely ready to wage.

My Spot of Pink

 I love this little spot of Pink in my life. That's all.

Roommate Reunion 2014

Oh how I love this group of beautiful women who have been a part of my life for 16 years. My darling college roommates and I descended upon Layton, Utah for 48 hours worth of loving, chatting, giggling, hiking, shopping, being silly, and overall just not sleeping. The older I get the more I realize the rarity of this group of women. No drama, no high school insecurities coming out in the form of hurtful sarcasm or backhanded compliments. Just positive, uplifting, righteous women trying to get through the hard things that life throws at them with as much grace and joy as possible. It was a completely wonderful weekend made even more lovely by Matthew letting me leave both my babies behind with him. Thank you my cute family and my sweet friends for giving me a much needed renewal weekend. Boston 2015 it is!!!
