OHHHHH Pinterest!

joining up with the blog challenge again today... I have discovered I am not very good at blogging daily:)  Oh well I try!

I have done a lot of little things from pinterest with the kids.  Most things have been cute and fun and some a pain:)

We made this at Halloween and it is super cute!

A little blog fun;)

I decided to join in with a blog that I follow.  I read several blogs and thought I would do a little about me for those 5 people that read mine (Family and some SC friends:)!!)
Not the most recent picture... I just don't feel like searching for one with all of us;)

In case you don't know us Jeff and I have been married for 5 years and have a 4 and 2.5 year old.   We currently live in Central NY.  That means that we are more then 45 minutes out of the city;)  We moved here in October 2010 from Greenville, SC.
Emma's first days...  so tiny!

 Now a VERY tall 4 year old!
 Liam's first few days!

Liam as a big 2 year old!

This blog is basically just my diary of our day to day life.  Nothing fancy but something for the kids to look back on.  I want them to look back and be able to see and read what we have done... some fun and some just everyday living;) 

Sibling Love

Thanks for stopping by:)

another trip;)

We had so much fun the first time that we decided to take daddy up for a visit to the ADK. 
Daddy relaxing with the littles!  They missed him while he was gone last week

love this view!!
 Her hair is starting to look really red right now!  It must be from the sun!  I LOVE IT!!

 Prince Aidan getting pushed by the girls!

Prince Liam couldn't put down the truck/tractor book
 Daddy's turn to swim!

Thinking about whether or not he wants to go in!
 UNCLE ERIC is DONE painting so now it is time to sit back relax and fish:)
 All good things must come to an end:(  Time to go home!

ADK Part II.... same day-different post:)

Some more pictures of the Adirondacks!

Waiting for his turn to fish:)

The cousins all relaxing with their feet in the water!


Sun is gone and getting ready for SMORES!!!
This little guy didn't get to stay up for the fun!

Why my kids go to bed early you ask.... They sleep later and better!  These two sweet smiles went to be SUPER late (for them!) and got up MUCH MUCH MUCH earlier then they normal do!!  I was also reminded why I do NOT sleep in bed with Emma... I think I am covered in bruises from being kicked all night;)

All smiles after only getting about 8.5 hours of sleep!  but those smiles didn't last too long;)

This one had to force the smile after not getting a good night sleep

Both happy to be sleeping!  They were sleeping within 10 minutes of leaving!!
