i’m trying to pretend that it’s not already mid-january as i post the happenings of december. well, the happenings that aren’t cool hikes, christmas, super sick babies, sewing, abandoning our dog, or buying an rv. so, here’s what our december looked like when those other things weren’t happening. firstly, hazel had to move out of […]
goodbye lucy. :(
so. even though we are megasuperexcited about the upcoming rv adventure, there was one really sad consequence to the decision. we had to give up our beloved canine (and sometimes hated chicken murderer). we went back and forth about what to do. she is 12 years old. and life on the road could be hard. […]
a peppa pig themed 2nd birthday party for the crazelnut.
i can’t even believe it. it went by in a flash. last thursday, hazel turned two. she’s currently obsessed with all things peppa pig, so a peppa pig themed party was in order. first, we attempted some chalkboard birthday pics. she loved the balloons. but, overall, was NOT super cooperative. we had to switch out […]
a chicken tale.
so. when i was writing my post for march, i intentionally left out all of our baby chick pics, deciding that a dedicated baby chicken post was in order. at the time, it was going to be a delightful tale, with future volumes. such is not the case. i’ll start from the beginning. we are […]
new year happenings.
i left off with my parents leaving town on new years eve. they woke isaac to say goodbye, per his request. they did NOT wake anna, per her request. and hazel didn’t notice anything different. but after the whirlwind of end of school, sick kids, christmas and then my parents here for five days, we […]
another very random post of very unexciting happenings… chick fil a visit. this goon. we are in the “get into boxes and baskets” stage. isaac had his school fundraiser. the boosterthon fun run. some halloween themed sugary cereals. throwback to my childhood. school picture day. handsome ike agreed to don a tie. this baby. barely […]
fall is in full swing and leaves are filling up our backyard. so, obviously, we made a pile for the kids to jump in. and by we, i mean derek. contemplating their strategy. as always, anna preferred to just sit in the leaves with her stuffed animals and bury herself and play pretend. isaac stomped […]
random summer happenings.
other than our beach trip and our ny trip, we haven’t been doing much this summer. it’s way harder to do things with the treacherous trio that i had ever imagined. i think their age difference plays into that. but, mostly, we just hang out around the house and such. here’s a photo filled post […]
pools and ice cream and bubbles, mostly.
yep. so here’s what’s been happening in our little world lately… hazel had her first swim in a real pool. she was a fan. i also had anna clinging to me like i crazy person, so it made my experience a little overwhelming. but, here’s a pic before anna “joined us”. isaac. he loves the […]
easter. spring. friends. lemonade.
well. i thought maybe i would split this post into a few smaller topical posts. but, my time at the computer is pretty limited these days. so another lump 32 picture update post will have to do. for now. i did save a zillion pictures from planting our garden today for a later post. you’re […]
