The girls and I are spending the weekend with my mom while the boys are off to the Big Apple freezing their bums off.
Here are just a few snapshots from our weekend fun…


Hope everyone is having a fun and relaxing weekend!

Snapshot Sunday {11-23-2013}

A little collage from the past two weeks of Instagram shots. Last week I never got around to posting Snapshot Sunday so I added a few extras in this week. Hope you enjoy!!!

Ever since I started working two weeks ago, I try to make the most of the weekends with my kids. Of course, the boy is either in his “dungeon” slaying the latest enemy with his friends, or he is at one of said friend’s houses all weekend. The girls on the other hand, especially Ally, still like to spend time with their mommy.

We’ve had some beautiful morning skies over the past few weeks. I like that quiet time early in the morning before the rush of the day begins. It’s calming.

Ashley, received her very first letter from a new pen pal in Australia – thanks to Kerry, one of my bloggy friends in Australia! It’s so exciting and I can’t wait to see how they do.

I’ve had fun with a preschool Thanksgiving craft at work and can’t wait to do more projects – I love all the little crafty things we do and seeing the excitement in the kids when they get to give the finished product to mom and dad.

I’ve also had my first taste of ginger bread cookies this season…

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!!!


Snapshot Sunday {October 6, 2013}

Looking back at the pictures I captured and shared on Instagram in the past week sure makes me realize that we’ve had some beautiful weather around these parts.

10-6 grandma and the girls

The girls with their great-grandma after our usual Sunday lunch. Little One got another little birthday party out of the deal with some cake, a balloon and a big “Happy Birthday”!

10-6 blue sky

Beautiful weather. See! I could take sky pictures each and ever day and not tire of it.

10-6 a walk with little one

My cute little smiley face. Enjoying one of our afternoon walks and having fun digging in the dirt.

10-6 sunlight

Sunlight through a canopy of leaves. So pretty.

10-6 a walk with middle daughter

Middle daughter enjoying some sunshine after spending much of the week on the couch feeling yucky.

10-6 reflection

Reflection. I love the reflection of the trees and the sky in the lakes in the morning. They are usually smooth as glass and the haze of the morning light just makes everything look so serene.

10-6 little girl reading

I love that I caught this moment last week. One minute she was dancing around, watching TV and the next, the TV was off and I found her reading a book.

10-6 shadow pic

Another thing about morning walks – the shadows. The pooch and I looking a little long. :)

10-6 i love fall

Thursday, I took my camera out to take some photos for the Nurture Photography Challenge and came up with this idea. I used some leaves from a palm font and from the ficus hedge in front of our house. Don’t ya love it? :)

10-6 landscape morning scene

Saturday morning. A little on the hot side already but still gorgeous.

10-6 halloween decor

The girls and I got our decorating on today. For some reason, I usually wait until the last minute to decorate for Halloween. We decided that we wanted to enjoy the spookiness a little longer this year!

10-6 sleepy girl

And this was the last shot for tonight. One minute they were dancing around and singing and the next both of them were fast asleep on the couch and the house was quiet, except for the hum of the A/C and the dryer in the background. It’s zero to 60 in reverse.

Here’s a video I shot of the girls last night. This is them, the way they are… sisters.


I hope, you are all enjoying your weekend.


Instagram Sunday (July 21)

Another busy week over and another week closer to the end of summer camp and summer break. Time flies when you are having fun that’s for sure. I’ve been pretty busy at work, holding down the game zone/dig mostly by myself all week because my co-worker’s 3 year-old daughter has been hospitalized. Poor baby has been through so much.

Both of our girls have had a bit of a rough summer the past few weeks. Looks like Little One will be home from camp for another day at least. While her rash seems to be fading and doesn’t seem to bother her much overall, she now has a pretty bad cough and runny nose (possible side effects of Fifth Disease). Good thing daddy works from home!

Hopefully, in another day or two she’ll be back to normal and can return to camp for some more summer fun!!!

This is what we’ve been up to this past week…

*As always, by clicking on an image a slideshow with captions will pop up! Enjoy!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week! xo, Susi
