 I love my new dining room lighting. It's so pretty in person.
I debated over a year on what to change the dining room light. Then I realized I hated what was there for months and wanted a change, pronto. So I just decided to be less picky. I first picked something busier and rustic. Ordered on line and I was sent the wrong product. So I went drastic and went for the modern look. It totally makes me happy because it lightens up (no pun intended) the homey-ish of the house.

Family Time

I enjoy our car rides. That's when the boys talk about everything. Good solid family bonding.
 This was the car ride to meet some family for delicious DIM SUM.
Robert ate chicken feet for the first time. Hopefully the last. He wasn't bothered by it. uckkk.

Getting Cold Tonight. Finally!

 Trying to keep Finn still for a picture was hard since she didn't know what the heck was on her body. Her first outfit.

Cafe DuMonde

It was overly crowded so we did the next best thing. Took a selfie and got some beignets and cafe au lait somewhere else. I mean how bad can the other places be? Loved our New Orleans get a way. Will come back for more good eating.

Autism Clinic

Holden got his lucky break to star in a commercial for an Autism Clinic. He loved every second of it.

Bubble Beard

 He loves showing me his bubble beard. He loves bath time.

More baseball

Cause boys will be boys...

Mel & Dan

This really is a nice picture. What a great day it turned out to be.


I think Wayfair has great customer service! The tv stand came defective. Instead of just giving me a discount. They sent another one to me. Now I have two of the exact same tv stand. Dang it. I should be happy but I would have been happy with just a discount.


I hate that I hate board games. But thank goodness he plays with the boys and they love playing games.

Soccer shirts

Between David and Chi Tram..The boys get spoiled with so many cool shirts. Thanks again! Cameron is starting to look older, don't you think?

Sunny Summer


We tossed a lot of sunflower seeds in mid to late March and it's now June 7, 2017 and we got our very first bloom!   Right now we see about at least 20 more little buds.

Via Middle School

 Pool party for the 5th graders. His safety patrol award and a citizenship award. Great job !

Talent Show

Last day of school and he was one of the finalist that got to perform again for the schools talent show.

Baseball Fever

Holden's first year of coach pitch baseball. We got lucky to be on a strong team. Holden has learned to be a better player. He only knew to swing aat a ball but nothing more than that. Now, he's a pretty decent a batting and catching the ball. Good for you Holden! 
The bonus was they were 15-1 and got first place for the whole season and they went totally undefeated for the tournament games. All very happy!

Let's Party

It was a graduation party for Austin and a surprise party for Amanda.

Teachers Rule

Thank goodness for teachers !!!
Appreciation Week.


We have completed Holden's 1st baseball season. 11-1

Got lucky to be on a winning team. Holden did go to 90% of his practices and all his games.
These coaches did not play. They were there to win and WIN they did.

Holden knew nothing about baseball. What he knew was what a bat and baseball looked like, not much more.

At the end of the season, he has gotten better each and every game. Proud of you for trying.

Tournament is in 2 weeks, This determines what kind of trophy you get, if you get one at all.

Nervous? Yes!

Went for frozen yogurt to celebrate.
