Backyard makeover

This is what our backyard looked like when we moved in several months ago. I'm proud to say that we now have green living things in our backyard. It's still a "postage stamp" size lawn( thanks to my brother Ryan for naming it this), but we love the green look and it does make it look a million times better than it did when we moved in. Take a look, see what you think.

Daddy Shoes

A few months ago I was looking for summer shoes for Myles. His feet are getting so big and it seems I am constantly looking for new shoes. Anyway, I found these cute little black and white Adidas slides for a great deal at Burlington Coat Factory. I thought they could be cute because they are similar to those that Bjorn has. I didn't know if Myles would wear them however, he has a hard time walking in flip flops and opts not to wear them much. I brought them home and he took one look and them and said "daddy shoes." From that moment on it's all he wants to wear(with the occasional wellies mixed in). I even think that while I was out of town he wore them to church because Bjorn didn't want the fight to get them off his feet while trying to get three kids to church on time by himself. What a good dad for taking three very small kids to church by himself in the first place( my friends all commented the following week that they thought if funny that Bjorn let Myles wear the sandals to church). I'm just glad he can get them on by himself! We love the "Daddy Shoes"!

True Audrey
Quintessential Lydia
Lydias B&W for my bedroom
Audreys B&W for my room

So for those of you who already saw some photos, there was a request for more. Here you go. Not any of Myles, but I was trying to get photos of the girls. Here they are. The bottom two are the ones I chose, I love them, and they are going to look great on Canvas above my bed. Now all I have to do is sew my curtains...

Photos and more photos

My fabulous friend Angela came to the house the other day to take a few pictures of my kids. I've been needing these two pictures of the girls for my bedroom. They turned out really well and I'm going to have a hard time choosing which ones to put on the canvas. Thanks for you great talent Angela. I've been blessed many times by the photos she takes of my family. Take a look and see what you think!
Trying to get three kids to look at the same time is worse than pulling teeth!

Momma and her girls. I just love these little faces. Man, I think I'm getting more and more freckles each year!
