Snapshots of Life Lately

Just because I take waaay too many pictures and I'm still trying to figure out Lightroom.  But mostly because I enjoy looking back through this series of posts and seeing how much our routine has changed and how much my boys have grown.
Here's to the simple everyday goodness in our lives!

 ^^Miniature Maestro loves to play the piano.  He climbs onto the bench by himself.^^
 ^^Apparently my boys don't have enough toys; they used my kitchen utensils for entertainment one day.^^
^^As much as I'd love to play board games with this munchkin, the concept is still lost on him.  He gets bored and would rather just use his imagination.^^
^^Boys + Sand + Trucks = A Good Time^^
^^View of our backyard before most of the leaves fell.  So pretty.^^
 ^^Eating ice cream cones outside on October 22nd.  It was so warm and beautiful that week!  But then again, I'm of the opinion that it's never really too cold for ice cream.^^
^^Brothers.  It's like they're magnets.  Wrestling is what they do best.^^
^^No matter how old, he'll always be my baby.  And yeah, he still totally naps.  Lucky mama.^^
^^A rare quiet moment: reading books while I folded the laundry.^^

Two Things:

1.  I am happy to say that my dad does NOT have cancer.  Thanks for giving us all a good scare, Dad!  Not really.  I'm just thankful that we'll still have him around for a good number of years.  Very thankful.

2.  My brother, Joe, just announced that he is officially engaged to his Hungarian girlfriend, Karmen!  I'm anxious to meet her in the flesh, rather than over Skype.  Congratulations, Joe and Karmen!  Wishing you all the happiness in the world.   


  1. I've been doing posts like this lately too- I take a billion pictures and love to go through these sort of posts later to remember happy days. Your boys are adorable! I especially love the footie pajamas (who doesn't!) and the photo of them reading on the couch. So sweet!
    Congrats on the engagement and so glad to hear your dad is healthy! What a relief. :)

  2. Love the ones of him on the piano! He has such an adorable smile, MELT MY HEART!

  3. Your pictures are always so perfect!
    Your backyard!!! LOVE! It's perfect for your family :)
    And it's NEVER too cold for ice cream! I'm with you on that one.

    Thank heavens about your dad! What an awful scare.
    Yay for a new sister!!

  4. These photos are just adorable! I love the piano ones and the ones of them in bed. They are growing up best friends!

  5. These pictures are so cute! I am so happy to hear that your dad is healthy. What a scare that is! That is exciting your brother got engaged. Have a great night!
