Proverbs Thirty-One: Thirty

A Day in the Life…

Happy 4th of July 2012

| July 9, 2012

We had a great BBQ at our neighbor’s house – with Will and Teva!  They know how to throw a great party!  Complete with kiddie pool and bounce castle! Once I finally got my kids to sit for a minute, Mara was being shy and cranky, but B was happy to cooperate.  So, this is […]

Crate Training.

| April 15, 2012

Yes, we will gladly babysit your kids! I promise, I found them like that!  

Potty time.

| April 15, 2012

Both kids hangin’ out on their potties…  Love it!

A Hair Day

| April 15, 2012

Bad hair day … post nap.     Better hair day! – April 3, 2012 – First hair cut!  If it weren’t for delicious bubblegum flavored suckers…  

Mara in February

| March 15, 2012

Love this girl.  She loves her clips in her hair, refuses to try a headband.  Loves pigtails (piggy’s), cry’s when I get out the hair ties. Loves the color purple, which is also the only color she knows.  Thinks every moving vehicle bigger than a car is a “choo-choo.”  Loves airplanes.  Loves to read; we […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

| February 19, 2012

B and I had a great week of learning “V is for Valentine” in school!  We did some math and writing but a lot to do with candy hearts, sorting, painting and lots of hearts all over! Our bible verse was John 3:16 – Our God loves us too! We painted “secret message” hearts and […]

When Daddy’s Away…

| February 19, 2012

Jon was gone for a 4 day conference in D.C. at the beginning of February. The kids got a kick out of talking/seeing him through webcam. 

Sick Day.

| February 19, 2012

When Mom is sick… they still come to play. My view of the afternoon: Shirt, pants, whatever! My variety of drinks to sip and things to do… in bed. Texts I got through the afternoon: B ended up getting sick that night and then Jon a couple days later.  M was a lucky duck (thank […]

Gone Fishing.

| February 18, 2012

Here’s one for you, Papa. We went fishing … in the bathtub! We caught some good ones!  But we threw them back.  

Pump It Up

| February 11, 2012

Play date to {bounce} !  Emily and her 2 kiddos, Reid and Lydia joined us to play one afternoon.  Mara hated it, B and R were 2 peas in a pod following each other, and Lydia was a climbing machine!  In M’s defense, not really geared toward little kiddos as much.

Random Fun

| January 25, 2012

Wanted to be like mom and wear a scarf. This girl likes to be pretty.  New “dressy boots” as Breyton puts it. She had to get her hat since mom was wearing hers!   Reading in her doll pack-n-play while brother and dad have some quality boy time of Need for Speed.   Told her […]

Littles at Sunset

| January 25, 2012

What is it about clean windows that attracts children? While washing screens and windows this evening, 2 little children appeared in the windows to play.  One ran away when the camera was pointed, one stayed to play. Then shoes were donned and out they came.      


| January 10, 2012

{Day 6} We were on the front lines to open the park at 10am and closed the park standing in line at Storybook Land at 8pm.  We didn’t know how the day would go with the kids so we took it as it came.  Grandparents took M back around 5pm to feed and sleep her […]

Laguna Beach Bums

| January 8, 2012

{Day 5} In the car most of the day moving to a condo in L.A.  We stopped along the way at Laguna Beach and played for awhile.  Mara enjoyed the sand, Breyton had to warm up to it as usual :)  Mara really wanted to get into the water – we had to keep reminding […]

A Day with Naps!

| January 7, 2012

{Day 4} Yes!  Today we were around the condo, so the kids actually got their naps!  Amazing. Jon, Randy and Breyton took off to Irvine this morning to Cars and Coffee where around 300 really nice cars were parked to gawk at.  He had fun to say the least. Mara and I took a walk […]
