Life (Project 365- Days 28, 29 & 30)

*Make sure you read the post before this one, if you haven’t already*

The thing about life with little kids is that it goes on… loss, big decisions and all, life with little kids still retains some normalcy. Know what I mean?

We got a box of goodies from our far away family on Friday. Dress up clothes for the kids and real clothes for me. It was definitely a happy thing to receive, but the kids were busy when I opened and I forgot to show it to them until Saturday…

They had a blast going through it.

Even Josie had to see what was in it for her (nothing, sorry Jos!).

We had the cowboy and the little southern belle.

On Sunday, Reed asked me for two pieces of paper– black and yellow. He colored two pictures, a sunny day and a stormy day. Now, this is what’s so funny, look closely at which is which! The stormy day is on yellow paper and the sunny day is on black paper!

We had dinner at Danae and Kyle’s on Sunday night. This has become a weekly thing. It is a nice way to end the weekend and start our week. Anyways, Danae made us quesadillas. They had all sorts of toppings and Reed wanted to try the jalapenos. Danae was like “noooooo!”, but I just warned him that they were hot and eating them might hurt. He still wanted to try them. So, I took one and cut a tiny little piece off. He ate it. Then he finished the rest of it and asked for some more! He said he liked them. They were “tamed” jalapenos and both Lena and Aaron ate them without crying, so they must not have been too hot. Still, I am surprised and impressed that he likes them!

This face doesn’t show his true reaction.

Then things just got goofy.

This is how I found them this morning when I went to wake them up. This makes me happy.

He got a muddy kiss from a dog. He didn’t care that he got it… just that I had to wash it off.

Today was a beautiful day… 67 degrees here! Aaron was home early and we all went out for a walk.

I’ll be so sad when she starts to run normally. I love her joyful hops with arms out behind her.

Untitled
I needed a photo with my little silly.

Untitled
And with my medium silly.

Untitled
And with my big silly.

Untitled
R drug this big stick across the road. Then L pulled it off to the side. This stick was HUGE, and I loved her determination to move it. ALL BY HERSELF.

Untitled
Reed picked up this stick and said “Hey guys, check out my junk!” And then I said “What you gonna do with all that junk?” And then Aaron said “all that junk from a tree trunk.” If you don’t get why that’s funny, that’s probably for the best and it means you are a way classier person than us.

Battering ram!

Untitled
The long lost Olsen triplet!

Untitled
Cutie.

These next few pictures could be titled “My Children are Best Friends.”

Aaron got to try out the baby carrier and Lena got a ride for the last part of our walk.

Baby A ALREADY got a present. Danae made him a soft photobook that we can put our own pictures in. I love it! Thank you, again!

One thought on “Life (Project 365- Days 28, 29 & 30)”

  1. I love your kids! My favorite picture is the one of the two of them reading together in the morning. So sweet!

    The photo book is adorable. Just a hint, you may want to have Danae sew your pictures into the book before you leave so he cannot pul them out. Anna’s favorite game right now is to pull every photo out of her book as she flips through it. : )
