And so it begins

Today is a new day for us...

We've spent the last few years together as I've chronicled the last 5 years of marriage.


Poked fun...'ve probably shaken your head and rolled the eyes.

Now, you will follow me into a great new adventure as I become a full time stay at home mom. You can follow my antics and family at...

Mr. G's Super Power

I don't know what he did to them, but for some reason...they are able to sleep through his snoring. Eliza's head looks fake for some reason. This was after Sunday dinner. Enjoy!

In eating our Sunday dinner together...half of the family started to drop like flies into slumber land. I guess my cooking does that :) Oh the power of spaghetti and meatballs.

Indoor Painting

"Circle and Triangle"

With the weather showing no signs of consistent improvement for outside activities, I busted out the paint and paper and used the bathtub as an approved creative space. After the paint brush was tried out, we ventured into the wild world of finger painting!

This is how you keep a little brother out of your paint

They were clean just a moment ago

Snip Snip

It finally came....

I cut my daughter's hair.

A little over a month ago, I took the trimmers to Nolan's head. I didn't like the back getting shaggy. No real tears as to what I had just done. He's a boy after all...shouldn't be a big deal for him to get a trim from mom.

Now Eliza...she hasn't had a single hair cut since her birth. She had a small beginning of hair that was positioned like a Jewish yamaka.

Grow her hair did and I tried to train the growth to part naturally on her very wild hair pattern. Her bangs sweep to one side, but the sides grow slowly compared to the back. We've tried clips, bands and ties to tame it.

But she is a wild child who tosses and turn her head on the floor and under things.

Most hair pretties do not stand much of a chance at staying for any length of time.

With a single cut in the back, with the longest and most noticeable length wrapped in a rubber was done.

No longer is there any baby left in my little girl.

I know it seems silly to be sad over a first hair cut and its a normal part of life, but I struggled with this since the document-er of this family had wanted to snap a dozen photos in natural lighting etc etc...but I guess...who has the time or money for that right?

Best Friends

Eliza enjoying her lunch date after some play. They get such the kick out of each other. Love this age!
