Oh hi! How are ya? Good? Me too. I've been busy. Too busy to blog like I used to. I think having older kids who don't nap anymore took away my blogging time. Either that or I've become too lazy to blog like I used to. Or maybe I don't blog like I used to because of Instagram. This here blog is kind of a family journal, but Instagram has now become my digital family photo book (I still need to make last year's Instagram pics into a book), and I don't feel the pressure to blog as much now that I've been Instagraming. Anywho. . . . here are some recent iphone pics that have either graced the pages of Instagram or my husband's phone through messaging.
|Hunter and Tralee wanted to be superheros, so we spent the morning making masks and capes. They wore them all morning long. . . and not one time after.|
|I think her superhero powers will be to make you swoon with her big brown eyes.|

We went window shopping at the mall a few weekends ago. I let the kids play at the play place, and all Tralee did was sit on a fake stump and write/draw in her journal.
We've been going on nightly walks, and almost every night we stop so Tralee can pet "Tiger" one of our neighbor's cats. I have no idea what Tiger's real name is, but that's the name Tralee gave it, so that's what this feline is to us.
A few Sunday's ago the weather was gray and rainy -- my favorite! The kids love playing in the rain. I wasn't all that surprised when I looked out my bedroom window and saw the wee ones "rock hunting" with their umbrellas in tow.
|I was inside my bedroom when this photo was taken.|
|I made this Sleeping Beauty dress for Tralee out of t-shirts for her to wear at Disneyland. It kind of worked out until I had to hack four-inches off while at Disneyland. . . I'll write more on that when I post about our Disney trip.|
A few Saturdays ago Tralee made a boat out of two water bottles and was obsessed with finding a lake to float it in. This girl comes up with more crafty ideas than her mommy can keep up with. When I was out for a run, I got rained on, and during my jog, noticed how perfect it would be to float her boat down the road towards the drain. I ran home, gathered up the littles, and we spent a good long while floating Tralee's boat down "the river."
|So proud of her boat!|
So. . . that's a little glimpse of our everyday life around here lately. Hope you enjoyed it, if not, that's ok too.
