Christmas Wish-lists

Isabella's

Kitchen: this has been on our wish list for Isabella for a while...we have debated on which kitchen to buy for months and fell in love with this vintage looking KidKraft kitchen.

Appliances: Love, love these kitchen appliances from PBKids...perfect addition to her little kitchen....not sure exactly which one she will get for Christmas but thinking either the blender or mixer is on the list

Fruit: love this adorable fruit and they also have veggies...Target had these Melissa and Doug felt foods on sale and I snatched them as well:) Do you see a kitchen/food theme this Christmas?

Deer: I have had my eye on this adorable deer for over a year...perfect for a girl with a hunting daddy and I will do anything to steer our love away from all things Minnie haha

Book: Love, love themed holiday books and this Olivia Christmas book is no exception

Camera: Isabella is obsessed with taking pictures and this fake camera is oh so amazing!

Cayson's



Anywhere chair: I had such a hard time deciding on the chair for Cayson, but like with Isabella's I decided to pick one that matched his room even though they stay in the playroom:)

Fox: This fox has been on my fave list forever and I always said if I had a boy it would make its way to our house:)

Moccasins: our sweet boy's first moccasins are almost too small so we have purchased these, they may be opened and worn before Christmas but does a 4 month old really care;)...

Rocker: love, love these rockers and love that this one is a perfect match for Cayson's room


What's on your kid's wish list?

Week in review

Can't believe how fast this week flew by. I was just telling the hubs adjusting to getting home late 3 nights a week hasn't been my favorite...we have all stayed up past our bedtimes, crammed in too much on our days off and live for the weekends:)
This girl...I mean....is she a teenager?

After getting home late this girl is a ham and really misses her momma. She is so hyper and loves to play. She doesn't like me to hold brother when I get home and tells me to put him down...sigh...we will all adjust right!?

We had such a fun, busy day off together...library story time, mall fun, lunch, and park fun with the Ellis'...


This shirt is perfection!!



She found it very entertaining that she could see "couds" aka clouds in the mall sky roof


Being a little drooling trooper

This girl and her lovie..her current BFF

Curls gone wild for sure:)

So glad she finally likes swings at least for a bit

Cayson's No Shave November attempt;) You should see his dad

This boy and his cheeks

Saturday morning I had tickets to the opening breakfast for the trains at Northpark...it was SO nice for my sweet pea to have a mommy/daughter morning date...she even went up to the hospital to round on a patient with me and loved it:)


Loving her "boon bacelet"


Making a "choo choo"





So perfect for this current "choo choo" lover


When did this boy get SO big?!

He finds his sissy VERY entertaining...watching him giggle at her makes my heart explode

Sissy has to do everything bubba does


Chewing and drooling on everything

Best daddy ever haha

Sunday we went to church, all took great naps....then Koen's birthday party...We all had to been woken up to make it to Koen's birthday party

This boy...I think he's starting to look a little like his momma;)

Happy Thanksgiving Week

I can't believe it is already time for Thanksgiving...I say it all the time but time seriously feels like it is flying. We took these pictures right before Halloween and I couldn't be more in love. Crazy for me to look at these and see how much my littles have changed in less than a month..

I use the hashtag blessed probably annoyingly too much on instagram but I truly feel so incredibly blessed...I know just how short life can be and how much the Lord has blessed us. I don't take a single minute or circumstance for granted. Dennis and I have had some really tough years but we were just saying what a sweet year this past one has been...free from huge trials or devastation. We know there will always be different seasons in our lives and for now we are really enjoying this happy season. I tear up regularly at the thought of all the things the Lord has given and taken away from us. I am walking along some people who are in a difficult season or just finished a tough one and I cannot help but remind myself that I know that in all things He is good and for that I am so extremely thankful. 

Hope you have an extremely blessed Thanksgiving week and that we all give thanks with grateful hearts...

Isabella's 2nd birthday party

This past Saturday we celebrated our sweet girl's 2nd birthday party @The Coop. It was a blast...of course I didn't get to visit as much as I would have liked to but that is part of hosting...the kids had so much fun and I loved that I was able to bring in all my own decorations and ideas....the staff were so helpful with setting up and taking down...most importantly my beautiful girl had the best time!





Party favors...mask&capes for the boys and tutus for the girls


The adorable outfit I ordered for her party was just a tad too big so we went with this option;) At least it matched the theme!

Our tradition of having books signed for her birthday


I wanted to hang the tissue poms from the confetti balloons but they were just too heavy...sigh!



Had a big gold 2 balloon to add but we couldn't get it to blow up...sad face but all in all I loved how it all turned out...






SO thankful for sweet friends and family







Hugs for Coopie

This girl

These pictures make me laugh...typical



So excited to blow out her candles
