Memory Keeper: January 28th

-In case you missed last week's post I've decided to jot down little memories every Monday.
I have a terrible memory and want to make
 sure to document even the littlest moments so as not to forget them!-

The weather has been unseasonably warm here this past week.
Low to mid 70's in January is fine by me!
After Sunday afternoon naps we loaded up the kids and
 headed to the lake for a long walk and some fishing.
We made sure to hike the hilliest hills in hopes that it would encourage Elle to come out. it is Monday and I'm still pregnant :)

On Saturday Travis had to work so the kids and I made a quick last minute trip to the city.
Target, ChicFillA and Starbucks were our three stops.
We made it home just in time for naps.
I love little outings like that with the kids.
I love having my little group with me at all times:)

I've been nesting like a crazy woman this past week.
It never ceases to amaze me how God gives my body the extra spurt of energy that it needs at the end.
I spent two hours on Saturday night organizing the kids clothes.
Jammies in sets, clothes in specific piles and everything labeled.
Out. of. control. nesting.

Friday night we went out for pizza.
It was a sweet time.
The kids were on their best behavior (miracle!) and were just loving life.
The big two are going through a kick right now where they like to get Cade to say new words.
He's such a little parrot these days.
They were belly laughing over the words they were making him say...
he was loving being the center of attention...
and I caught Trav's eye as we smiled and laughed at the kids.
I love living life with my best friend.
Love knowing that we're in it together in raising our little group.
I love knowing that was our last little pizza outing before we're a family of SIX!

Hope your weekend was a good one too!


  1. what a great weekend. love when you mention you caught your husband's eye and laughed together. so sweet. those are the beautiful little moments that are treasured.

  3. thats so neat huh being able to sit back and admire what a special little family that YOU and your love created. I love the moments where I can just sit and be in complete bliss just by watching my kids. This was a great post. Glad your weekend was so awesome. AND I WISH you could come nest at my house GEESH i can't get anything done with my 3 month old. Nice you are doing all that awesome organizing before little #six gets here.

    Thanks for your post!
    xoxo JeNeal

  4. If you run out of things to work on at your house, you can come do some nesting at mine!
