Colin, Emilie & Molly

They make me laugh everyday...

Our weekend started mellow.
Drawing, breakfast and some more drawing.
Emilie has come so far with her drawings. 
She is finally proud of what she draws.
We have always been proud of her.
It's nice to see her proud of herself.

We then moved on to painting Colin's room.
I let the kiddos color on the walls while I taped and filled many, many holes.

The freedom of coloring on walls was a ton of fun.

Sunday morning we watched and cheered on Emilie as she sang with her preschool class in church.
It's amazing watching my little girl sing on a stage that Colin sang on just a few short years ago.

We finished the weekend with a  very cold walk minus Molly.
Looking back at the pictures from this weekend little miss Molly is absent in all of them.
Poor girl has been trying to fight off a nasty cold by sleeping, sleeping and more sleeping.

While she napped the two older kiddos and I headed out for some much needed fresh air.
We have all been feeling very cooped up and needed to get out and reset.

The signs of winter are everywhere.

I love that my kiddos like to be in front of the camera.
And love to be together. 

We then started the week with some more crafting.

 I love how their crafts turned out.
And for Molly's.... 
We are still waiting on little miss.

Happy Monday!

I know its coming....
Days filled with rain, wind and darkness.
Until then, I'm going to try to get every sunny day picture I can.

Little miss has become a pretty amazing photographer.
By Christmas she will have a much better camera.
Until then she is stuck with our original 3.5 mp camera.
I think  I know the camera on my iPhone has more mp.
She took this photo of guys right before they left for their weekend trip to Port Townsend.

While the boys where away on their trip we played with play-dough...

Stayed the night at Aunties (my sister and Maxie dogs brother's) home. 
And Emilie's favorite part, sweet little Louie. 
The softest and sweetest dog.

Then the big surprise!
Emilie got her ears pierced!! 

She did so GREAT!!
I am so proud of her.
 She sat so tall and brave. She only cried right after it was done because she said "the snapping sound scared her."
It was strange, amazing and emotional to be sitting in front of my first little girl watching her get her ears pierced.
Time is moving so fast.

She continues to amaze me everyday!
Happy Monday.

Day of pasta and music

My youngest started Tuesday Morning at 5 AM. 
That makes for a very long day for this mom.
She is so darn cute.
Even at 5 AM

Once we said our see ya's to Emilie and Colin we got moving on making noodles.
My plan was to make as many as I could.
After many detours we ended up getting only two batches done.
One regular and one spinach.

With many detours we finally got it done. 

She at least tried to clean up her mess.

Between noodle batches we took a pause to dance.

  Love on our babies

And play dress up.

A few hours later Emilie was back from school and we dance some more...

And played some tunes on the piano.

Molly was amazed by the awesomeness of the player piano.  
I was amazed that she would sit and watch.

Even though it was a very long day we still found ways to have a good time.

The last few months I've learned a lot. 
Mostly about myself.
 In that time I've also realized how important it is to have people around who want to know me for me.
No matter how many ups and down I have.

For that I am very Thankful.

I am thankful for this little guy.
And thankful that he still loves that I volunteer in his class and say hi to him at recess. 

He thinks this is a better picture.
He doesn't like that you can see his teeth in his school picture.
I think that is the best part!

I am thankful for my new favorite space in my home and its perfect view of outside.
I love that our loft is my office/sewing room.
No toys, no random storage.
All mine and no clutter.

I am thankful for daylight savings and the extra hour I got Sunday.
I just need this little nugget to figure it out.
She was up at 430 Monday morning and very bitter by 430 this afternoon.
Sleep came very early tonight for her.
And can't come fast enough for me.
Have a great Tuesday!

Bring on November...

Soccer season is over!!! 
It was fun, but now it's time to move on to warm and dry sports. 
Colin loved soccer. 
He loved hanging with this friends and was all smiles rain or shine.

Emilie loved soccer.
She was serious and focused on the ball at all times.

After Emilie's last soccer game for the season we hurried home to join in on the fun at the neighborhood Halloween party.
Halloween on Monday is hard! 
Everyone starts celebrating on Friday has some more fun Saturday, drags it out Sunday and brings it home on Monday.
 I was done by 8:00 PM Monday. Decorations where pulled down, thrown into the green and orange tubs and candy bags where dropped into my lap by 9.
Next Holiday please...

Since Halloween was 4 days this year Colin got to be as many things/people that he wanted.
 One day Batman the next day a fireman.
This was also the first Halloween Molly "got it"
She like the pumpkin carving
Loved the dressing up like a princess
And went crazy over Trick-or-Treating

Who needs the sidewalk when you can cut through the yard.

We finished the night off with an amazing pirate ship/ haunted house combo.

Doug made the perfect B.A. for Colin.
They where both very proud.

Emilie had her school party on Monday.
So cute!

Now that Halloween is over we are able to settle into fall and truly love the crisp sunny days and
Enjoy new found treasures in the house.
I found the perfect paint project for Molly.
The kind that already has paint on the page.
This little nugget still finds a way to make a mess even with just water but it is so much easier to clean up.

Emilie also loves it.
And our new way of keeping her hair out of her face.
So cute!

I'm loving the slow pace that everyone moves in this time of year.
Happy fall!!

Now I need to find a good fall picture I can make my November banner...
