Visiting Santa Claus.

Remember our experience last year?  Well, my friends, let me tell you… Kingston was a sitting-on-Santa’s-lap CHAMP this year.  Now, it didn’t come naturally/all on his own; the hubs and I have been spending the past week or so getting him excited for our visit.  We made sure to talk Santa up, explain that Santa […]

A strand of Christmas lights.

This weekend we pulled out our Christmas decorations per tradition and started decking our halls with some holiday cheer.  One strand of Christmas lights ended up being a great distraction for a little baby I know. And maybe one toddler… and his dancing snowman. Boy, do we love us some Christmas around these parts.

Yesterday we gave our Thanks.

    We spent Thanksgiving at my in-laws’ home this year.  It was a nice, quiet Thanksgiving.  Full of good food, little to no rain, football on the TV, baseball/playing catch outside… and even a few photos with a busy toddler and a cranky, teething baby. Now, crank up the holiday tunes – it is […]

A Pirate Party.

      Wishing my sweet, big boy the happiest of birthdays today.  Three years ago we became a family of three and instantly knew what unconditional love felt like.  He is so much fun and I am so proud to say he is mine. Happy Birthday, Kingston!

My Knight (in shining armor).

    This boy had such a blast this Halloween.  After visiting about 3 houses in Nana and Papa’s neighborhood and 12 houses in our neighborhood, this boy has got the words “Trick or Treat?” down. He loved knocking on everyone’s door… but we had to keep reminding him not to go in people’s houses, to […]

My Life: According to Instagram

                Our beautiful and long summer has officially come to an end – we are definitely feeling Fall around these parts.  I’m not gonna lie – I kind of like it.  In fact, one of my favorite photos I’ve taken with my phone via Instagram has been this Fall (see the photo of Kingston playing […]

Because it was a bit misty out.

     He made sure to take an umbrella to the mailbox… and then into the backyard this evening.  Never can be too prepared; don’t want to get drenched in all this mist we’re having now (I’m starting to think Kingston would make a good boy scout; just need to make sure he remembers to put […]
