The boys got new spring pants (which both were ENTIRELY too large - 3T and 12 months, both falling completely off - had to be rolled, pulled and tugged to fit my skinny ones). They almost never match and I thought they looked absolutely precious this morning!
And Lillianne insisted on wearing her earrings. Cut-outs from a coloring book taped to her ears. She likes the chandelier earrings like her Aunt Meghan, that's for sure!
Love my stylish kiddos =)

Tonight we took the baby to get his very first hair cut! He was most excited about the sucker and barely noticed the sweet girl cutting his blonde locks. She did such a great job and he sat super still in Daddy's lap the whole time.
You look SUPER cute, Nolan! We love you and your new big boy look =)
It’s gotta be fun to be a boy =)
Daddy, Pawpaw and Hudson joined KC and Tate at the MONSTER JAM truck show in Roanoke today. Whats better than ‘big buddy time’, Lays potato chips, loud obnoxious vehicles and fire breathing car crushers?!
Hudson’s been talking about this day for weeks and it did not disappoint! He was so excited to come home and tell me about the man without pants?? and the dragon (car crusher). The boys had a great time! I’m thankful they were able to spend the afternoon making such a fun memory!
It’s fun to be a girl! This morning sweet Lillianne and I got to spend time with our friends - celebrating Valentines Day at a special brunch and Abigail and Aunt Erin hosted! There was yummy food, treats, lots of crafts and giggling girls running around the house…perfect!
Lillianne LOVES her cousin and they were like peas in a pod this morning. It had been a while since they had good “hang out” time. So thankful for our girls, their fun personalities and girly excuses to get together!
We got lots (and lots!) of snow on Thursday. I was super excited to have Justin home for a long weekend - and had great visions of playing in the snow for hours on end, coming in for hot chocolate and watching movies in the warmth of our cozy home.
Well, the kids got us up at 6:30 screaming “snow!!” and wanted to head out the door right.away. Yes! I managed to hold them off until 10:00 when we laid a feverish Nolan down for rest. =(
We bundled in layers - pants, bibs, shirts, sweatshirts, coats, gloves, hats, and scarves. They complained and I was burning up after running up and down the stairs upteen times to get everyone ready.
We finally made it outside. They were amazed with the garage door opened and we stepped into 20” inches of snow. Hudson had fun for all of 3 minutes. Then he realized he couldn’t walk without falling, his gloves would not stay on and wet snow was sticking to him. Justin tried to help by sitting him on the sled so we could pull him around. But there was so much snow - it kept piling up in his lap. He screamed for about 5 minutes before I convinced him to sit and watch us sled down the hill a few times. Lillianne, Daddy and I trekked to the top of our back yard and worked for several minutes trying to pack down enough snow to make a good track. After several attempts, Hudson started yelling again. Then Dad started yelling. Then I started trying to get them calm because our neighbors were out and I didn’t want them to think that we possibly weren’t having any fun in the snow!
25 minutes in - and I was done! I lugged Hudson inside, and he proceeded to sit at the window and talk about playing out in the snow for the rest of the morning. Daddy “disappeared” to shovel snow (the nerve!!) and I sat holding a fussy baby and whining toddler.
Jealous of our snow day yet??
We did manage some yummy hot chocolate and a few good movies. And despite the rocky start - I did enjoy being stuck inside with my Valentines!
Now —- bring on the 60 degree weather and sunshine!
