And The Final Way To Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity
i came across this online...i believe its an email circulating--pretty funny stuff!
when will you try some laugh therapy?  


end of season.

Soccer has finished, and we are going to miss it.  We had an amazing season, this was Brayden's first time playing a team sport and it was fantastic!  He learned so much and made some great friends.  This was Jeremy's first experience coaching and we are so proud of the job he did.  Every single parent on the team complimented him and was so thankful for their child's experience.  We had our last game then headed across the street to celebrate the season ending with pizza, cupcakes and TROPHIES!  You would not believe how much these children cherish those.  Brayden carries his around all the time and his so very proud.  We are all going to miss soccer but look forward to the fall to play again!  Right now though, we are moving on...
Brayden is interested in so many things.  There is not a single sport that he does not love.  We believe that playing sports and being involved with a team is developmental and so important for children, but we hope to never go overboard and always make sure our children have a proper childhood. Growing up at home, not always at practices and traveling in the car is our first priority.  Brayden loved soccer and could not decide what sport he would choose next.  We gave him a few choices, and he prayed about it and asked God what he should do (so proud of that little guy).  I told him to continue to pray about it and wait a few weeks and then he could make his decision.  He did....and he chose baseball!  We are so excited and to begin this new season and look forward to sharing it with you!


more nanny love.

we just enjoyed our menchies frozen yogurt.  it was outstanding.  oh, man i love that place.
brayden and lainey could have played for hours on the bike stands.  its always the small things
that they seem to enjoy the most.  the kids were soaking up all the nanny love they could get. 
spending time with together and watching these littles and all their expressions was
the best entertainment we could have asked for.


i love days like this.

mornings at the park.

playing and making memories.

loving every second.

breathing in childhood.

and not wanting to miss a moment.

enjoying the sunshine.

watching these babies grow up right before my eyes.

seeing siblings become best friends.

and big brothers being protectors.

getting a surprise glance at a 
submarine pulling into port.

as my children watch

with pure amazement.

oh, how i love these days.

having daddy stop by during lunch.

being here just in time,

to watch the jets practice flying.

these are the days i cherish.

i don't want to take for granted how much God has blessed our lives.  and our time in hawaii.
watching our babies become little children.  in such an amazing place.
i hope to make time every day, to slow down and enjoy the beauty of it.
we are so very blessed.
and i am so very thankful.
every. single. second.


little missy. you are mine.

i love this moment captured.  you are full of life and full of expressions.
i cannot even recall why this face was made ~ but it is so very you.
my sweet little missy.  my sweet little lainey.
i am so glad you are mine.
xo. mommy


she's a mess ... literally

This fast approaching two-year old has become very independent.  And along with this come the messes of that independence.  She does not want to be fed...because she's not a baby, right?  I personally am not too fond of this...because she is my baby.  Who does she think she is, growing up and all?  She is actually really good at using her utensils but, as you can see often time she just dives right in!  She is as sweet as she is messy.  She is our little Lainey love.  And as her baby days are fast fading we look forward to all this little toddler has up her sleeve.  
{in case you were wondering...the culprit behind these messes...}
{yogurt and mashed potatoes, two of her faves.}
