Christmas Pictures {Wordless Wednesday}


A few weeks ago we went to get the boys pictures taken with their cousins. Here are my favorite images:




Amusement Park Fun {Wordless Wednesday}

Lucas loves roller coasters!

These pictures are a couple months old but I was going through my online albums and realized I never shared the fun we had at the amusement park so I’m sharing a couple pictures today :)

Jacob was so excited to get his Sparks membership card at Awana last week! They do little award ceremonies so he got to go up there on the stage and then everyone clapped for him :)

Can you guess which child probably wouldn’t have gotten the job?

Wordless Wednesday: Jacob Turns 5

Jacob's birthday treats

Jacob’s birthday was June 4th. Can’t believe my little boy is 5 years old already! Here are a few pictures :)

Jacob’s birthday treats


Jacob with one of his gifts. These Imaginext toys are kind of expensive but I found a bunch of used ones cheap and Jacob doesn’t know the difference :)


Jake is really into cars lately. This was one of his gifts from his Nana. He’d been wanting this set for months.

Wordless Wednesday: Happy Little Boy

I can’t believe this cute little face is headed off to Kindergarten soon!

Build A Bear {Wordless Wednesday}

Soccer was cancelled the other day due to rain so we headed to Build A Bear to pickup their Autism Awareness Bear. Lucas and Jacob each wanted something different so I got the bear we went for, Lucas got a pink one with a My Little Pony outfit, and Jacob got a white bear in an Iron Man outfit.


Lucas loves cuddling with his stuffed friends!

(Disclosure: This is NOT a sponsored post :) Thoughts are my own.)

First Soccer Practice {Wordless Wednesday}


This past Saturday was the first soccer practice of the season and Luke’s very first time playing a sport. Last year he had to watch Jacob have all the fun so this year he was so excited to be able to participate.

I didn’t get many pictures of them playing since they were far away. I’ll have to get some better ones next week.

Easter 2013 {Wordless Wednesday}

I hope all of you who celebrate Easter had a wonderful one. Here are some of my favorite pictures. Finally pulled out my Christmas gift to use so I got some decent, non-cell phone pictures to share!

First Bath {Wordless Wednesday}

 It’s so fun looking back at pictures of when my children were babies! I remember giving Jacob his first bath and being so worried about how fragile he was. Nowadays I have to worry about the boys jumping around in the tub and not hurting themselves as they giggle with each other! What a difference a few years make :)

After a whole bunch of pictures this was the best shot we got of these 5, 4, and 3 year olds. Aren’t they all adorable in their little outfits? :)

My Little Chocolate Monster {Wordless Wednesday}

Love this picture of Lucas trying to devour a candy bar without unwrapping it first! He loves chocolate as much as his mommy :) lol

Indoor Snowy Fun {Wordless Wednesday}

snow in sink

No snow here in Chicago and I don’t have any recent pictures that don’t have at least one child moving so I decided to share this picture from 2010 of Jacob playing in the snow indoors. This is such a fun way to play with snow on super cold days. I put it in a sink but you can use a large Rubbermaid container or put it in a clean bathtub.

To make indoor snow play even more fun you can hide things in the snow for your child to find or color the snow with colored cold water in a spray bottle.

Have fun! :)
