A Day in the Life

Usually I just pull the camera out when something incredibly monumental or funny happens. But these pictures were taken on a more normal, casual day when Khloe and I were just doing what we do, playin around in the front yard picking dandelions and such. Also during this day she saw her first real-life spider. I know most women are freaked out about spiders but I'm totally not. I guess I impressed that upon her because she promptly tried to pick it up and check it out. Yikes! I might not be afraid but that doesn't mean my kiddo should go picking them up willy-nilly. Guess we'll have to teach "looking but no touching." Ha.

Barn Babies

So there's this Massachusetts company called Barn Babies that is basically a travel-to-you petting zoo of baby animals. Brilliant! The city of Quincy arranged a free playgroup activity with Barn Babies for the little kids of Quincy. We went and Khloe had a blast! There were kittens, puppies, a baby pig, a lamb, baby bunnies and a chicken.

Easter and a Visit

For her birthday my mom was gifted a trip out to visit us. It was SO fun! We hardly slept because how could we let a minute go by without being together?
Her visit happened to fall on Easter weekend so we had lots of fun doing Easter-y things. Like egg-hunts galore, digging through Easter baskets, and taking Easter pics after Church.
Loved every minute!

Happy Birthday Wes!

Okay, I admit I took quite the hiatus. But here I am, back again. Hopefully that's a good thing? ;) More than a few things have happened since my last post, ahem, 4 months ago. One of the more important ones was Wes' birthday. He's a grand 28-years-old now!

Snow, Snow and More Snow

For those of you who haven't happened by the weather channel this winter season, we in Boston are getting hammered with snow. I believe the current total inches we've received so far this winter is 60. SIXTY INCHES!! Can you even believe it?! You know those 'snow mountains' in the corner of grocery store parking lots that, as a kid, you always pleaded with your parents to let you climb? Here in Boston everyone has their very own snow mountain right in their front yard.
At least somebody likes the snow!

Santa's Surprise

Hmmm... days into February and I'm still posting about Christmas? Lame. So sorry. Last one, I promise.

This is what "Santa" sewed up for Khloe this year using this tutorial. On second thought, maybe you shouldn't look at it. Mine seems a lot more impressive without having seen hers. :)

Our Christmas by Highlights

I believe in a less-is-more approach to blogs. But, that being said, I'm horrible at it!! I really tried to whittle our long 18 day Christmas break. And here you go. :)
