A Day in the Life.....

For the first time in a long while I have slowed down and just enjoyed life without any busyness. So what did we do today? Well, we slept and took naps. Actually, a certain little person did while I took advantage of some pictures. A newborn and my camera are a dangerous time-waster for me.Then Hunter stole the camera from me in the middle of my photo shoot and decided he wanted to be the man behind the lense. It took a while for me to get it back from him because he was loving posing us so much. Tessa decided to start crying and Ainsley wanted to pose for her brother in a way she never will for me. I figure this is typical life with three kids who all want to do their own thing while getting involved in your projects.Then they rolled around on the bed for a while enjoying each other and cuddling "baby sissy". I love this foot shot.When that got boring (actually when Ainsley threw a fit and went down for her nap), Hunter decided to make an elaborate road system in his room out of pillows with a blue paper lake all around. It covered his whole room and went up into his bed where he had his "town" built.I tried briefly to go outside, but the 108 degree weather drove me back in, though I wanted to enjoy my flowers a little more.My front walk looks like a jungle right now. But at least everything is blooming.So instead of working outside, I got the inside all tidy and nice looking. Also, I know I am back to normal since I felt the urge to create. I made some of these with a friend yesterday.Ainsley woke up with hair all a wreck, but wanted to model the hair bow anyways.After some more play time and clean up time and dinner, then it was bath time. Why do they like my big tub better than theirs? Empty bath bubble containers make great toys.
And that's a quiet day in the life of me. Kinda boring maybe, but it's the first time in a long time that I haven't ran errands, cooked, entertained, worked, or done one of the various other chores that seem to always await me. The house is clean, dinner was brought from friends at church, and I got to just enjoy my kiddos. It was kinda nice for a change.


  1. What a nice day! As always, your kids are adorable!

  2. Cute kids, beautiful flowers, and little Tesssa makes the cutest shoe model. Can't wait to see her again.
