About Us 2015

I updated our "about us" page. Here is the previous one.

Here we are! As a family, we love travelling, Disney, the beach, hiking, and anything that lets us spend time together.

I'm a mom, that's what I do.  Every day consists of cooking, cleaning, snuggling, fun stuff with the kids, crafting, mommying, and writing.

Miss Margaret is your average, spunky, imaginative second grader.  She loves Angry Birds, school, and making up games with her friends.  Her imagination is full of stories and new ideas and inventions.  She is really silly.

Dalton is in TK and is a ball full of silliness and snuggles. He likes the iPad, reading books, stuffed animals, whatever his big sister is doing, and strangers.  He's super friendly, especially with adults - if you look fun, you are his new best friend/grandma/brother/whatever.

Sienna joined our family in November 2012. She's got a mind of her own and the spunk to make it happen. She likes princesses, music, being stubborn, and making people laugh.

John is a CPA.  He spends his free time buried under the children's attentions.

Arthur in January

 Arthur learned a lot in his second month.

He's not very smiley, but he's done it a few times.

Working out his arms. Arthur really likes tummy time.

Enjoying the sling.

Rolling ONTO his tummy (8 weeks - yikes!)

And perfecting the rolling onto his back. And talking instead of screaming.

Sometimes you need a little perspective to see how widdle he is.

Double chin dimple.

Random December and January

Random pictures from hanging out, mostly at home, in December and January.

Nen went to a bowling party for her friend.

Trying out the new park in Beacon Park.

Tea party for a friend's birthday.

Be afraid, Arthur.  Be very afraid.

Sleeping in a tent... with no tent and no sleep.

Dalton's first piano lesson was a bit crowded.

Early morning ipad time.

Visit with Nathan

John's brother and his family were in town last week. We had dinner and met them at Knott's Berry Farm.

Uncle Nathan still gives the best horsie rides!

Apparently those are the only pictures I took, so I stole these from Nathan's Facebook. Hi Nathan! One of my only blog readers.

Quite an unflattering picture of me, but I think it sums up motherhood. Also, I just realized Arthur's blue pants are probably still in the stroller (I've been looking for them) where I put them (dirty) about 2 minutes after this picture was taken.
