Beach Baby

This past weekend, we took baby to Florida for a friend’s wedding. We had to leave the six other kids with friends and family. Baby had a great time! I wanted to post a few pictures from our little getaway. Enjoy!

Pink Nails and Pirate Masks

What are little boys made of? Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails.

And what are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice.

Alexandra and Yana

I had the pleasure of having my sister and her three kids visit for a few days this week.  They live on the other side of the world, so it’s always very special to see them.  The girls had fun playing dress ups and spraying “fairy dust” (perfumed body glitter) all about the house.  Meanwhile, the boys drove trucks around, built with their Legos and drew dinosaurs.  As for me?  I had fun painting all the girls’ nails 🙂

Four weeks?!

Where does time go?! Four weeks already? Technically, yesterday marked the date, but we were busy packing and cleaning before heading out for a week with family in the beautiful Hill Country. Baby’s first vacation!

I was a little nervous about coming because baby can still have long, wakeful nights, and my three year old has been difficult lately.

But so far we’ve had a nice dinner; kids are enjoying the pool, and my dad pulled out some very old family pictures for my sister and I to view.


Homework

My seven year old had to write about her life today for homework. Our lives can be summed up with memories of events, both good and bad. For her, there seems to be only one that stands out. And I’m happy to say it’s a good one!
