Sawyers 2nd Birthday #momspotted

I can't believe I still haven't shared any part of Sawyers birthday so far besides his laundry basket photos. For his actual birthday we didn't too much since it was a weekday but we did go out to Friendly's for lunch and Daddy got out of work to join us. Sawyer was pretty happy that his kids meal came with a sundae covered in m&m's. Afterwards we headed over to the mall and went to … [Read more...]

Last weekend was our annual St. Patrick's Day Road Race here in Western MA. Almost 8 thousands runners come to run this race! It's known as one of the hardest ones around since it's on lots of hills. Every year we all go down to our family business that just happens to be located right across from race headquarters to watch the fun and hang out with friends and family. We have multiple … [Read more...]

Sawyer James

I can't believe it's been two years. TWO YEARS since this amazing little boy joined our family. I can't imagine where our lives would be without him here. He is such an amazing little guy who has brightened my days in so many ways. In so many ways it seems like just yesterday he was born. He was so small and so tiny. If I didn't take this photo I might now remember just HOW small he … [Read more...]

Oh boy! What a weekend. We almost got through it too. It was 5 minutes past bedtime but Sawyer was playing so contently. What were a few more minutes of him playing really going to do? Well, Sunday night it did quite a bit.  He fell right into his wooden activity cube he was playing with and sliced his forehead pretty good. At first hubby & I weren't sure what to do. The bleeding stopped … [Read more...]

Some Of My Shutterfly Photobook Stash

I love taking photos. I print my DSLR photos on a monthly basis using Shutterfly. I make a point to try to take my camera out even in the most boring cold winter months. I've stopped making albums but I like having printed copies to look back on. But what about all those pics we take and share on Instagram? It's my#1 picture taking spot and I was losing all those photos each month. What if the … [Read more...]

2013 Christmas Sawyer

Talk about a late post! Things have been super crazy around here but I really wanted to make sure to share our Christmas. I love looking back through the years at special moments with my children and I would be sad to have no memory of our Christmas together on my blog. We received MANY Christmas cards. Three times this much. Next year I need to find a new system or at least another one … [Read more...]

Tips on Organizing, Storing, & Selling Kids Clothing!!

I like to shop the clearance sales. It's the best way to get the best brands, best quality at the best prices. I'm not always the best judge of size so I try to at least space out the necessities. Knowing what I have in each size is important. It also means I won't miss out on really cute items because it was mixed in the wrong place. I also have two older boys and like most I try to save what … [Read more...]

Gymboree 2013 Holiday Collection Fair Isle Collage

I love this time of year. Clearly not for the weather but because my kids let me take tons of pictures of them. I have such a hard time coordinating clothing for them though since Sawyer is in toddler sizes, Gavin in big kid sizes, and Johnny is officially in adult sizes. I suppose I could start with one favorite outfit of the kids and then track all over the mall finding all the coordinating … [Read more...]

Over the weekend we had soccer play-offs. The boys played a hard season and  walked away with two awards. They not only placed first for the season but they also won the Championships. Here they are shortly after as a team. My Hubby (aka Coach) was pretty proud of his team. I love that Johnny and his Dad have soccer to share. ONLY Wordless/Wordful related posts should be … [Read more...]
