Lovin the life that brings me home.....

My kids got skills.

I must say,

It's true.

Besides runnin amuck at uncharted speeds,

My babes have been showing some great sides of themselves lately.

Lauren got a camera for her birthday and has an ever improving eye for a good shot.

Taken by her:

A lover of all things pink or purple.

Aprons, My little Pony, Babies,

And her little sis.

She is a real spicy gem to have around...

Avid scooter enthusiast,

and ideal roller derby scrapper.

That's my 'baby doll'.

Then there's man cub.

My softy with a phrase for every occasion.

Here's what he's been saying these days:

"Night time is my favorite time of year"

while we were cuddling on the couch he gazes into my eyes with a sigh:

"aaahhhhh, my huge mommy"

This morning during story time he looks at my face with a startled expression:

"Mom! DO you have a pirate tooth???????" (He noticed my silver filling for the first time. )

In his loudest screechiest boy voice

Plus, he is newly an off road two wheeled biking fool:

And Claire.

Specializing in creatively disobeying.

Walks through the house singing out:

"Oooh Mom!!!(long winded) Where are you????

Her brother taught her this:

Pay special attention to her face at the end .

Be sure to scroll down and turn the music off.

What did I tell you?

Pretty good right?


  1. I didn't watch the video cause my little peeps are sleeping. BUT I read all the adorable little things your kids do any say. And I can attest that you have some of the cutest little ones out there!!!

  2. They are growing up Holly. I was surprised at how long Silas' legs looks on that bike. Clair... OMG! She looks so much like Lauren and has grown sooooo much. Tell me... could Lauren's eyes be any more beautiful. I can't wait to see them. Hope they even remember me.
    I met a guy that has a house and apartments there in Brookings. He said it was across from the theater. Now what are the chances of that? He told me we'd never want to leave there it is so beautiful.
    Ohhhh I can't wait!!

  3. Love...Love..Love the videos. Thanks so much for posting them. I am so proud of them and I can't wait to hug, kiss and eat them up! See you soon! XOXOXO

  4. I often wondered what it would be like to have several kids, and see how different their personalities would be. Your kids sound adorable, and I love that pic Lauren took!
