For the Love of February

Pin It
In February, there was a lot of this going on...

(messes, all over, every where) 

(babies underfoot)

("helpers")

(dangerous activities)

(cupboards emptied)

In February, I wanted to capture "The Day in the Life of" so that I never forget it.  I would describe this season of life as:

Exhausting
Hilarious
Messy
Draining 
Sweet
Overwhelming
Comical
Hard Work
Selfless
Delightful
Tender
Crazy
Loving 

I know it will be gone in a flash, I'm really trying to savor the moments like this.  The purpose is to remember to support women who are in my situation when it is behind me, I never want to trivialize their struggles or accomplishments.  The other reason is to remember these days, all the highs and lows, and look back with sweet remembrance.

(preschool at our house this day)


(of course somebody was sick)

(wrestling) 



(study spelling with kids)

(house back to messy)

(valentines prep)

(sneaking a few treats)

(baby needs another nap)


(still working...)

(this may have sent me over the top)

(grilled cheese and tomato soup)
(getting dressed is the pits)

(the finished products)




(bath night, drinking bum water)

(more homework)

(bedtime stories)


(four down one to go, clean house while we sleep haha)

(preschool prep and DVR)

And a few additional things worth mentioning in February:

Perriton uncles and aunties came to visit



My sweet Beehives served a romantic and elegant Valentines Day dinner for two.


Averie's run-in with an exact-o-knife resulted in a trip to the Urgent Care.

 February did not disappoint...I need a nap after posting this.

Gran's 60th Surprise

Pin It As explained in the previous post, we somehow pulled together an epic surprise for my Mom, or Gran as she's called.  She is very special to all of us, and this surprise is very telling of our love for her.  A few of my siblings got her reaction on camera, but I literally do not have any footage or pictures of the week.  Hopefully my family will share what they captured with me.  In the meantime, here are some professional pictures of our clan.
