Have I mentioned i love insta-gram? I could take and post photos sometimes hourly on a good day; but I try not to .
I thought I’d share are a few photos captured a weeks ago. This week there was kind of a pause in picture taking. I’ve been fighting yet another bad head cold (3rd one this winter) and it was really kicking my rear until today. Hoping I’m heading in the healing direction.
I love these next 2 shots probably the most in this little grouping. The first below, is of my dad and Jack. My dad isn’t the type of grandparent that babysits a lot, or really ever. If I’m in a jam he will help. But, he is the grandparent that comes to dinner as often as we invite him, has us over to his 5 acre wooded lot to go sledding, makes it to 90% of the kids sports, and is always willing to help us DIY or do a project.
One day both of my parents came to my house for lunch while the kids were on spring break. This is rare for me, because my parents divorced when I was in kindergarten. So, getting them together for a meal doesn’t happen. In the last few years though, after both of them fighting seperate forms of cancer, and both getting hip replacements (mom is having her’s in April) they have become friends. So, seeing them together, with just me and the boys, is always a treat. Here are Nana and Max checking out the never ending snow.
Here is Lukey sleeping in a chair we were given from my dad. This makes me laugh, because every piece of furniture in that room, except for an ikea 4 square cube, was given to us for free. This is actually great because our kids treat it like leaping pads sometimes.
Here’s Max in a pair of boots my dad got for Jack. At the time, I thought my dad was nuts. They are Sorel boots and they are tiny. They cost like 60 bucks at the time. Yet, they have lived through 3 kids perfectly, and are a favorite of our little man.
One other thing I love, is that the boys love to help us cook. I love that Joe cooks, and I mentally thank his mother for this skill on a weekly basis. I hope my boys will continue this with their partners later in life too. Jack, helping daddy make dinner.
This one cracks me up. These two ya-hoos are partners in crime these days. Chasing each other, snuggling, laughing, playing, and LOVING peanut butter. By the spoonful, if I let them. Max’s shirt is also one of my sassy favorites.
Finally, there are these two lovely beauties. Wanda the Washer, and Dave the Dryer. We LOVE them. They make laundry so much easier. Wanda likes to leave her doors open so she doesn’t stink (she’s so risque’). They are made by samsung, and after some research, a recommendation from my neighbor and a big sale, they were also easy on the pocketbook.
What was your week like? What are your Easter plans/traditions?
