These little beauties are Emmy and Allie Mae Kracker. I could not believe the adorableness from these two! Seriously, Allie Mae’s cheeks are absolutely precious! They are such sweet little girls too. It was so much fun photographing them. Nick and Megan Kracker should be very proud!
This little one has a newly discovered love for books. This one in particular, which was also a favorite of her brother’s at that age.
I was outside taking pictures of the house lit up after yet another snow storm when I saw this scene. They were watching their crazy Mommy outside!
Somehow the cold does not affect Liam. He would sled ride all day if we would let him!
This lovely group of ladies are part of our Tuesday morning Mom’s Group. It is so refreshing to connect and study together every week.
I was going to attempt to replace a piece of hardware in our computer tower. But my brother-in-law advised against it and offered to do it for me in return for dinner (no argument there). He is so patient and kind to his niece and nephews. Liam loves his “Uncle Annew (Andrew)”.
This bearded stud and I had the privilege of attending a marriage retreat together this past weekend. We had a wonderful time hanging out without the kiddos and also with our friends. And we even learned a little ballroom dancing!
Daddy’s idea of an igloo developed into an awesome tunnel! Hurrah for a combined 10″ of snow this week!
That night Daddy was working overnight and Liam swore he saw an elephant out his window. So he ended up in bed with Mommy.
The Elmo trance. Affecting two year olds everywhere!
Liam was standing on his bed looking out his window after naptime. So many imaginative things take place outside that window.
Charlotte has a special attachment for her Grandpa Griffith. I think the feeling is mutual.
Charlotte turns seven months old this week. She no longer likes to be held or contained. She insists on scooting and crawling looking for anything to chew. I think her first tooth is on it’s way!
My dad made this little kitchen set for my sisters and me. We loved it! Now that Liam has shown so much interest in cooking and pretend play, we asked to borrow it. He enjoys it so much! He puts on his little apron and says, “I makin’!”
We made a trip to Indianapolis this week to visit Mema and Popa Hughes. Liam is so blessed to have such a nice Popa that loves playing with him.
“The Monster at the End of this Book”
I normally have the advantage of grocery shopping alone. But I decided to bring Liam along to practice his “store manners”. I love individual, quality time with this little dude.
Charlotte loves making noise! Liam was also enjoying this moment with us until he realized that I had my camera remote in my hand. So of course he had to take the picture.
I really enjoy my work space in our great room. I wish I didn’t have to spend as much time as I do on the computer, but it’s nice to be with the family while I work.
I bought Liam a brand new stash of craft supplies this week. So of course we had to make Valentines! We sure enjoy Daddy being home more now that he is working the night shift.
Nearly every Sunday we make a trip to see my parents and younger bother and sister. Throughout the week Liam is always asking if it’s the day we are going to see “Gampa and Uncle Isaac.” I love that he enjoys playing outside there. It bring back so many memories of my childhood.
