My sweet boys and grandpa went to the Boundary Waters a few weeks ago. They all had so much fun. It was a ton of hard work but totally worth it! Caleb's favorite things were playing cards in the tent and hi head lamp! He also enjoyed kicking both the adults tails in catching the most fish!! This is somthing that will be remebered forever!
( I know that there are more pictures somewhere, just can't find them....so I am sure there will be more to come!)
My little guy is growing up fast. I know that I say with a lot. But he is. He is almost two!!! Where has the time gone? I know that I will cherish these pictures forever. Porter did not let me get too many, but one is all I needed. Pure joy.
Porter was so fast, a blur really! He would not dare look at me. Little stinker!
The other night I took my little Porter out for his 18 month pictures....I know, I am a few months behind, hey you never know 22 month old pictures might become popular! He did not want to look at me, but brother, yes. Stinker! Oh well. I got one or two good ones. But for now I will just share this one with you. I love this. Brothers.
Poor kid was dripping sweat. His hair was soaked. Poor kid, he is a sweaty one.
Porter is a walking tornado! He seems to get into everything! Tossing clean folded laundry out of baskets and drawers is his favorite! He has also taken up loud, screechy screaming. It makes your ears ring, you know the kind. Oh, the child!
The other day the kids were coloring, of course Porter wanted in the action. So after drawing on Hannah's picture a few times (Hannah crying rolling on the floor while Porter is pinching her arm) I pulled him down his very own coloring book. He loved it!! He really is sweet....when he is not screaming, throwing, biting, hitting, pinching, kicking and anything else you can imagine. :)
Caleb was working on his own project. He is growing up so fast. Makes he sad and happy. He is such a good little boy!
When you stay at home all day and stare at your walls and each room you kinda get board with stuff. This is something that men will never understand. "Why are you always spray painting something?" Do you really have to be asking me that?! Can't you see?! Does it not bother you that we have been looking at the same picture in our kitchen for 5 years??!! I am not always one who welcomes change well. But this, this I do.
If you are a fellow min-a-snow-dian you know what I am talking about when I say one word.....winter! (Gross I can't believe that I just wrote that! Gag!) Well. It will come and when it does I am hoping that my new kitchen will make me fill like I am in huge bowl of sunshine. Doesn't that sound delicious!
I know that you all have been holding on to the edge of your seat to see this amazing, sun filled, even in the depths of winter kitchen, looks like! :)
well. here. it. is.
Curtains: made from fabric from Hancock
Large chalk board: made by yours truly....old frame from goodwill and a bottle of spray paint

Me: "Hannah, it is time to get into the tub." Hannah: " I can't mom, I am a slug." Me: bending down to pick up the "slug" Hannah: "Don't touch me, I am eeewwie and gooey, and sticky and slimy AND slobbery." Me: *sigh*
Kurtis: Caleb, what are you doing? Caleb: How did you hear that? Do you have fox ears or something? Kurtis and me: *trying to keep a straight face.*
This is me in a nutshell
My greatest joys and frustrations come form being a mother.
I love making new friends and love keeping my old ones too.
I LOVE to laugh...until I cry...about funny stories!
You'll always find cookies or chocolate in my home.
"Roker"...you will never be complete until you play it.
I am 27 years old...almost 28...ugg!
I love to shop for kids clothes...and really LOVE buying pajamas for my little girl!
I love a clean kitchen.
Love to eat out...anywhere!
I am always looking for something "fun" to do.
Can't stay in my house for too long or I start to go insane.
Hate the cold...dream of living in a warm climate all year round..still working on getting my hubby to agree. :)
Love listening to Taylor Swift!!
I love to take pictures of my kids!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
