things we love...and things we don't

Here are some things we love:

Addie loved her first season of soccer that ended today! She played so well and made an amazing goalie! Here's Addie with her sweet friend Maggie.

Don't be fooled, it's not just little boys that love playing in the dirt and digging for worms! Ellee loves finding worms and making a "home" for them. She even names all of them and is convinced she can tell them apart!

When I noticed her sad face (that you can see in the picture), I asked her what was wrong. "Lillian Grace broke!!" she said with a quiver in her voice. When I looked down and saw a severed worm, I had to stifle a laugh!

Sam loves to eat! And he's quite messy doing it...

I love what a huge help this little doll is to me!

Picking strawberries is one of my most favorite family traditions! We've been doing it every year for quite some time now. Our plan is to continue that tradition later on this week! Here's a glimpse of what it looked like last year...

Here are some things we don't love:

The smile may be deceiving because Ellee did not like playing soccer. She was very excited for the season's end today! She proudly showed off her trophy while telling people, "I never, ever, ever have to play soccer again!"

Sam absolutely hates riding in his car seat! Did I mention that he H.A.T.E.S. it? But he's still so unbelievably precious - tears and all!!


Wishing you a week full of things you love!!


  1. I LOVE your blog! I like the new design and I love the photos! LOVE you all - precious kiddos! Don't love? I guess not getting to hug those kiddos in person (and maybe not worms).

  2. oh my goodness. Such precious pictures. Zoie is our worm digger and would spend all day doing so. Glad to see picture again of that sweet baby boy.
