Newborn Photos

I can’t believe sweet Baby S is already 10 months!! How did that happen?! Time sure flies with a baby; I feel like I’ve blinked and we are almost at a year!

I’ve been doing a bit of ‘first birthday party’ brainstorming over here and that got me a bit nostalgic, so I ended up scrolling through some of her newborn photos.

Gaaahhh she was the cutest little newborn :). So I thought I would share just a few pictures.

She had (and still has, just a bit longer and blonder) the sweetest fluffy hair with a little swirl on the back of her head. The cutest!!

A bit of baby spam to make your Monday a bit brighter!


Ringing in the New Year

imageHello 2016!

Well, our holiday celebrations have continued! We spent New Years Eve and New Years Day with my side of the family.

It was a combination of celebrating New Years and Christmas, so there was still Christmas music, stockings, and all the classic Christmas eats and treat!!

Here are some of the highlights 🙂

Of course first off is time with family!!



There as also lots of having fun and playing with all the new toys my nephew got… I think the adults has just as much fun as my nephew!


And tons of yummy food 🙂 image


This Christmas was not without excitement!!

You can’t celebrate the holidays without a nice roaring fire. Well… the handle to open flue was pulled out just a bit too much and the flue disconnect and shut… now the problem was the the fire was already going!!!

But men to the rescue!! My husband, dad, uncle, and brother-in-law put out the fire and even fixed the broken flue!! No harm done!


Well, 2016 is already turning out to be a fantastic year 🙂


Happy New Year!





Christmas at the Farm

imageHome again!

The first half of our Christmas celebrations have passed. So sad!!

Our road trip to visit family began on December 24th, and we arrived back home last night.

The days in-between were packed with family, friends, fun and games, cute little nieces and nephews, lots of sweet treats, 3 turkey dinners and so much more!


There is something so peaceful and quiet about getting out of the city. The open fields and big skys are so beautiful! And despite it being a bit chilly we did manage to fit a walk in to enjoy it 🙂


My sister-in-law’s cute little family just got settled into a new home this past fall, so it was so fun to spend time at their new place, chat and catch up, play with the kids, and make some more memories!


Well, that is just a small snip-it of our time away!  I can’t believe how quickly the holidays are flying by!image

Christmas Part 2 with my side of the family starts on the 31st!

We’ll be using these days leading to digest all that good food from our trip:) and get ready for more holiday fun!


Winter Family Photo Shoot

Are weekends the best or what?!

Yesterday my family braved the cold to get some nice family pictures!!

It looked so beautiful with the little bit of frost and snow and the covering of fog… and you can’t even tell we’re cold 🙂




I think we are all super happy to have my sister, brother-in-law, and nephew back in town!!!!


Such a cute little family!!


And these love birds!!


Photo credit goes to my sister!! And she even kindly braved the cold to take a few more pictures of Mark and I 🙂

I’ll be sharing more photos later!!


Happy Sunday!!
