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...]

Happy 2nd Birthday Sawyer James

270 views

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...]

{Wordless Wednesday} Sawyer’s 1st ER Trip

365 views

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...]

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?

Our Christmas 2013

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...]

How To Organize Kids Clothing! Tips on Storing, Closet Use, & Selling!

3,469 views

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...]

Rock Your Holiday Fashion with Gymboree’s Family Looks {$75 Gymboree Gift Card Giveaway!}

2,226 views

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...]

WW- New England Fall Photography with My Kids

I love summer. I like it warm but one thing that excites me about fall is the color. Here in New England our autumn is in full swing! Now that I have my DSLR I love it even more! I love the photos I've gotten of the boys this year and last. Then the next day I took Sawyer outside. I had found the hat we used to do our 'Baby + Pumpkin Photo Shoot' and wanted to see if he'd wear it. At first he … [Read more...]
