Our life in pictures and words...and random tangents

Life has taken on a whole new level of busy now that Adison is in school during the day.
It also brings on a whole new level of exhaustion, mama is needing 2 cups o' coffee nowadays.

Little girls in matching tutus picking flowers, be still my heart.
Seriously, is there anything cuter?
They even wanted to wear matching bows and shoes.
I love having little girls!

Ainsley lost an earring last week.
It fell out sometime during the night and she didn't realize it was missing until almost 11 a.m.
uh oh
We ran up to the mall to pick up some new sterling silver earrings and I had to repierce her ear {gag, the hole had closed up a bit, end gag}.
She picked these out because they are sparkly and have pink AND purple in them.
So completely Lee it's not even funny.
She told me that she wants a pair of ladybug earring for her birthday, I think we can manage that one.

My poor Dad has a hernia in his back.
He is in major pain and the swelling has caused sciatica in his back.
The girls and I have been taking him to physical therapy three times a week and he has treated us to some ice cream treats.
I have no idea how she does it but Ainsley manages to get ice cream all over her face.

Puzzles are all the rage in our house right now.
Do your kids go through cycles with toys and such too?
Adison and I completed a 3D Finding Nemo puzzle yesterday, it was awesome.
Oh, did you hear that Finding Nemo is going to be back in the theaters in 3D?
I'm normally not a huge fan of 3D movies, I tend to get headaches and they are not normally worth the extra $$$, I think that we are going to have to see Nemo in 3D though.
{P.S. it was the first movie that Adison saw in the movie theater as a wee little toddler.}

Last week, on our way home from dropping Dad off at p/t there was a wreck on highway.
Luckily, no one was seriously hurt, but the highway was backed up for miles.
This bus was being towed and when Abby saw it get in line in front of us she burst into laughter.
I texted it to K to throw him for a loop, I'm happy to report that it worked and it had no clue what was going on.

K's mom and dad sent the girls some happy mail last week.
The girls got to open their gifts right after dinner.
They were so excited!
{Man, Adison's hair is getting so long! She refuses to get it trimmed, I've told her that as long as she takes care of it she can keep growing it out. I wonder how long she will grow it. Lee is growing out her's too and has decided that she is going to donate her hair to Locks of Love, such a sweetie!}

The dreaded laundry and clothing changes.
The kids are growing {which is great} and the seasons will be changing soon so I did the bi-annual clothing swap.
Storing clothes for later and weeding out clothes that don't fit anymore.
It is such a big job, I was beyond thrilled to get it done.

We had a new store open in our town recently.
Yesterday they had a big promotional sale and interesting attractions.
This guy doing the chainsaw, wood carvings was amazing.
The one that he is working on is an owl and the one in the foreground in an eagle.
He also had done a bear but I didn't get a picture of it.

I also spotted this beauty while we were walking to the car after the store opening.
I want one, this is beyond awesome.
I looked on ye old internet last night, but couldn't find the exact one.
Oh well, I'll keep searching.

This picture does not do it justice, but I noticed this massive bruise on my leg Saturday.
It's huge.
Plus, I have no idea how I got it.
At all.
It kind of {read REALLY} weirds me out.


I am doing The Color Run AGAIN!
That's right baby, to 5Ks {and hopefully more!} in a year. 
I can't wait, super excited and I am determined to run the entire thing again and hopefully do even better than last time.


  1. Your kids are too adorable! Sorry to hear about your Dad. I hope physio gives him the results he desires. Are the doctors planning on fixing it? Woot woot! WTG on the colour run commitment. You Go Girl!

    1. Aw, thanks Sarah! Yeah, his back is pretty bad but it's getting better. He is supposed to talk with his neurosurgeon tomorrow to see if they are going to have to do surgery or not. I'm ridiculously excited about the Color Run :) How are you guys doing?
