We play... A LOT!
and we played some more......
I love nothing more than capturing my kids in their day to day activities just being kids. We also love to make messes to. I have learned through the years to clean up at the end of the day when they are done. I used to run around picking everything up behind them lol ( OCD ) and that got way too stressful. So I have learned to embrace our messes until everyone is finished. It is ok. I have to tell myself that often.
OOH, by the way, yes I love my babies piggie toes :)
We like to be silly too. We laugh a lot in our home and get silly!
We spend an awful lot of time outside. We love being out in the nature and fresh air. The kids play with their friends and we just hang as a family!
Gavin loves his leaves and sticks. Give him one of those he wont make a peep all day!
lots of walks with dada! We love to walk around outside!
We are trying to suck up and enjoy the last warm days. So why not a little homework outside?
We even lost a tooth!
We picked apples at the orchards and enjoy a little campfire in the back yard! We love fires. nothing more relaxing than sitting by a campfire with my husband and kids!
We enjoyed the fire!!!
I like to make sure I have the kids do a quiet time during the day. If I don't they run non stop all day. I try to tell them it is important to have a bit of time in a day just to relax and be alone. either read, just sit and relax, or I don't mind if they even play an educational game on my iphone or their tablets. something to simmer for a little bit. and of course baby Gavin has his nap time. I can not help myself but to snap away every time. he is so precious when he sleeps.
Pauli trying to have some down time and Gavin wouldn't let him. LOL!
Little man is so precious when he sleeps. SIGH!
Sleepy guy!! I am always snapping picture of his little tootsies when he sleeps. I just can not get enough of them.
LOTS of snuggle times. Theses two melt my heart though. Little man loves his dada SO SO much! I am so blessed to have such an amazing husband, best friend, supporter and father for my kids.
I want to remember these little details forever! How little and soft his hands and feet are. His eye lashes, his soft little hairs on their body, his amazingly soft hair, the positions he sleeps in, the way he walks silly to make everyone laugh! I wish I was a photographer when my other kids were little. I have some pictures but nothing like I would love to have. These little things we tend to forget. I love that I will be able to look back on all of these things.
The kids were so excited to wear their halloween costumes they played in them the few days before halloween and I could not get them out of them!!
Austin makes a handsome police officer!
star wars clone trooper!!
My little lady bug.
and we can't forget out little pumpkin!!!!!
And then we went trick or treating. We had such a great time. I would have loved to go longer but our little Austin got cranky and tired of walking. YES, our hyper child that never drops got tired first!
We are goofballs and just love to have fun and laugh. My husband is a total kid himself. I tell people I have 5 kids not 4. We love to get dirty and explore. We love to rough house and make jokes. We aren't perfect and our house gets crazy. but we wouldn't have it any other way!
I hope you enjoyed my first week in my life. This week was a bit long because it is my first post and I had a lot of photos. Well, ok I will be honest. I take a lot of photos every week lol. I can't help myself. So much inspiration around us.
Well, until next week.... Keep smiling!
