big sister

By Moriah on September 26th, 2011

Alternate title: Self Importance

She was so funny – being the big sister, taking her job very seriously.

(My friend Lisa teases me about how often my kids wear stripes. Ha.)

the other side

We had a really great weekend even though it was a LOT of work. And yes, we got to the church on time. ;)

With Grandmom, Saturday:

She and Grandpop took the 3 big kids on a train ride and out to lunch while I ran errands and bought food. Some family friends came up in time for pizza that night and why did I not pull out my camera?!

We took a ton of family photos afterwards (can’t show; mom’s Christmas card) and had lunch for family, etc. in the fellowship hall and again I forgot to take photos. The kids apparently ran around so hard that immediately upon entering the car Arianna fell over.

Drew’s car game, called “my arms are broken”:

My sweet Madeline-girl:

And this was from a few days ago and totally unrelated but so funny. She’s got the most awesome kiss-face. And she loves her wittle brother.

We have lots of family in/coming to town because Ethan’s baptism is Sunday. Which means tomorrow is going to be busy buying and cooking food for the lunch afterwards, preparing breakfast and clothes for Sunday (because we have a SLIGHT ISSUE with getting anywhere on time, especially across town at 9:30), and hanging out with everyone that has come to visit. I also have to pick up his birth announcements at Costco. Good timing, yes? I LOVE them. I’ll show you next week. And I’m going to buy a cake.

It’s times like these where all God’s blessings sort of get in your face, demanding notice. It makes a long hard week lighter. People around, help with the kids, laughter, talking, good food… And my mom is staying until next Friday.

I’m doing my happy dance.

Small Style – I could just die at all the cute

Arianna, for church last Sunday…

This is what happens if you take away her paci:

Top used to be Adelaide’s and passed down, socks ARE Adelaide’s (I just folded the extra fabric under her toes), dress is her own; everything is Matilda Jane and shoes are Livie & Luca, bought last year during a big sale and saved.

Oh, Life

By Moriah on September 13th, 2011

If you know us in real life you might know that today was a big day for us (and that’s all I’m going to say but I’m laughing in my head a little bit).

I’ve been so busy just trying to manage… kids, school, homework, Arianna and her funny little self and big destructive ways, nursing a wee one, etc. Andy had a business retreat last week and they got a lot done but man! five kids alone for two days is hard for one person. Oh but hey, did I mention my sisters moved back to town? They’re pretty much lifesavers and all kinds of awesome. And also, they live about 4 minutes away. SO THANKFUL.

Other than that we’ve been…

Making silly fake-sad faces,

talking to the [other] baby,

making living room forts and coaxing Daddy in,

snuggling baby brother,

going to a wedding,

to watch a close friend get married,

dressing ourselves,

going to the first day of 1st and 2nd grade,


holding cutie pies,

and wearing brother’s too-small shirt


Mom! Arianna’s in the bathtub!!!

By Moriah on September 3rd, 2011

This is the kind of stuff she pulls (in case you hadn’t picked up on that already).

I swear it’s like she can smell me sitting down to nurse the [other] baby.
