I love having a cell phone camera. That sounds so dumb, but it's true. I capture so many day to day moments that I never want to forget. Life is so sweet, and I couldn't be happier with my little family. They bring so much joy to my life! So, here are some pictures I have snapped over the past month or so...moments I don't want to forget.
This particular day, Claire didn't want to get out of her jammies. So, I let her stay in them most of the day. I walked downstairs and she was lying in the sun with the puppies.
Lilly had her usual crew over after school, and they found this costume which Claire wore when she was like 6 months old. Only Claire would think to put it on! It was SO dang funny. We all laughed and laughed over it.
Lilly is in that stage of loosing teeth! She has lost two of her bottom, and in this picture she lost her first front tooth! We were on our way to church, and she came up to tell me her tooth fell out. Yes, it fell out because she doesn't want anyone to pull on them. She wants them to get so loose, that they just fall out. It drives me crazy! I pulled a crazy mom, and got a little teary eyed looking at that gap in her mouth. I wish they would stop growing up!!
We had one week of cold and winter like weather. They girls woke up on Saturday morning, and it had snowed about an inch, so they had to get out all their gear and go play! We have had insanely warm weather. It doesn't even feel like winter. It was 66 degrees last week, and 58 degrees yesterday. It has been great because the kids can play outside, our yard work is all done, we can go on walks, etc....but I am hoping we get some snow for Christmas. I know the girls are anxious for snow!
I just snapped this picture because I love looking down the hall and seeing Clairey playing. She has such a huge imagination and I love listening to her play, it is so darling.
A couple of Sundays ago, Anton and I were down watching TV. I hadn't seen or heard the girls for a little while, so I went upstairs to see how they were doing. I walked into my bathroom and found this. Claire claims her hair was itching her, so she took matters into her own hands, and cut that hair right off. I was not happy with her...mostly because I don't want her playing with those really sharp scissors she got ahold of. She has pretty thin hair, so I wasn't too upset to cut it short again!
More projects! I am finally getting around to painting some rooms that we didn't get to before we moved in. Some of the rooms didn't bother me when we moved in (mostly because I was SO sick of painting and prepping the house, I just wanted to move in), but now I am enjoying really making the home ours. I finished painting our master bathroom, and now I am working on painting the dining room. I bought a sander, and I am sanding down the heavy textures walls as best I can, and then I am painting the ceiling, walls and trim. It is a big job, but I am looking forward to the new look! Next up: powder room, Claire's room, and possibly the entry way. I love doing the projects, I just wish I had more time to do them!
