Enjoying Spring

You know when you set your plump little one down in one place then go back a few minutes later to find they are now behind the tv chewing on daddy's $150 headphones it's time to baby proof again.

And if he is not on the move he wants to show off his sexy legs, I mean stand. Never mind the diaper behind him, I had to capture this precious moment before and I was being lazy.

Nowadays this is about the best picture I can get of the two of them.

He hats hats...

And as of late, we have been spending a lot of time outside, taking walks, gardening, catching polliwogs, swimming, and just hanging out.

Not much else is happening. Kids are growing faster than ever, it's hard to keep up. We have been planning a renovation to create our dream house out of our 1955 home. And I have been working on a few projects to spruce up the drab interior at minimal or no cost.
Have a great evening.

Random Pics


Someone was caught eating grass.

Scotty's first time swimming...

He thoroughly enjoyed it.

I dressed Allison in her Easter dress from grandma & grandpa B to take a few photos.
I just love these. She is growing up so fast.

By the end though, Allison, nor Scotty would cooperate for a photo with grandma GoGo.

Have a great evening.

Quality vs. Quantity

I had a great talk with a close friend about friendships. The quality of a friendship is more important than the quantity of friends. I had to agree 100%.

While doing the dishes, after the kids were all tucked into bed, I got to thinking quality vs. quantity reflects in so many decisions Scott and I have made. For one, we have chosen not to send our kids to daycare. Instead we sacrifice luxuries, vacations, living just within our means, sometimes scraping by when times get slow at work. But this is the quality of life we want for our children, that, in my opinion, is much more important than the quantity of stuff we can amass.

A woman from MOPS had said "How do you want to be remembered? By the things you have or the things that you have done."

I took it to heart and decided that I want to be remembered for the things I have done, the quality time I spend with my family and friends making memories, is more important than quantity of stuff I can shower upon them (unless it's my vast knowledge of zombie movies or food).

Tonight just sit back and think about the quality vs. quantity in your life and what sacrifices your willing to make to get the quality of life you want.
