Dave has been working hard on the kids’ bedrooms. It’s been probably 5-6 years since we did anything in their rooms, besides repaint and throw new comforters on the beds. (Side note: I let the girls choose their own wall colors last time. Gabby chose two shades of “I Have a Bad Cold” green, and […]
I knew you would want to see how the girls’ costumes turned out:
Addie J, the jellyfish.
Lishie in her Day of the Dead costume.
I TOTALLY thought these two costumes were going to end up as the, “Nailed it!!” side of a Pinterest Fails meme. I feel like I got […]
We spent last weekend out of town at a lacrosse tournament. Our team won their bracket, and it was amazing– I have come to believe that lacrosse is one of the most exciting sports I have ever watched. Maybe because the game moves so fast, and is big enough to cover the entire field, and […]
Super rough-looking shot from last New Year’s Eve. I think we had just been outside, shooting off unexpectedly huge fireworks; we both look a little shell-shocked.
Cam had terrible, terrible allergies as a young kid. Like, the maximum sensitivity to the allergy tests is a 6. When he was first tested, the nurse brought […]
My boys, on our trip to the East coast this Christmas break.
One time, when Cam was four years old, we spent the afternoon at the beautiful, recently remodeled home of a friend who (unbeknownst to Cammy, of course) was in the midst of a great deal of marital trouble. Everyone was outside, […]
He had already had several haircuts. SEVERAL.
…was my due date with my first child, whose gender we did not know. I grew up with an adorable little brother (he’s still cute, fyi- and now he comes with a wife and daughter, which is a bonus), so I hoped for an adorable little boy […]
Our ladder seat, in heavy rotation last year.
The following things happen without fail each school morning. It’s like Groundhog Day over here:
Cam showers and then gets back in bed. I then have to wake him up, about five minutes before his bus arrives. Every morning. (I also say, “Cam, why do […]
This year, we watched the Super Bowl with friends who had an absolutely massive spread. Sliders. Sloppy joes. Chicken pot pie. Brownies. Just unbelievable amounts of food; so, quite naturally, we all ate unbelievable amounts of food.
You know how I live in a house full of easy pukers? With the exception of Dave, […]
I picked up Cam from school today and, as he walked into the house ahead of me, I noticed that his pants– which almost touched the ground when I bought them in the fall– were now approaching his ankles. “Are you growing, again?” I said. “Come stand in the mirror with me.” And indeed, […]
Cam and Dad, doing what they loved the most: checking out cars.
Cam is so like my dad in so many ways: he looks so much like him of course. And– and I didn’t really put this together until after Dad died, I guess because I’m slow on the uptake– Cam gets his […]
