Insta-Week {12}

Posted by casey on December 14, 2012 in Insta-Week

It has been awhile since I have given a glimpse of life via my phone, but since I am in the middle of doing the Twelve Days of Christmas Treats & Eats and the Twelve Days of Christmas gifts for the husband at home, and the Twelve Days of Christmas Nightly Books with Caden I figured it just made sense to go ahead and do the 12th Edition of of Insta-Week.  Right?

Remember that time Everett turned ONE and I never told you about his party…

This is our cat. We don’t own it, or feed it, or take care of it, but we do go and visit it every day on a walk at it’s house – and everyday it comes out talking to see us and get pets. We call her white kitty cat, very creative.

Adorable? I think so. handwashing 101.

Went a lil’ Griswald on the front porch this year for the kids. Santa will know they live here, no doubt.

It just doesn’t get more exciting than the Chick-Fil-A cow showing up at storytime. “Mama, a Moooooo!”

Puzzle time.”I did it!”

Caden rarely gets treats.  So sometimes, he needs one the size of his head.
Thankfully his lack of sweet tooth made him satisfied with a couple bites!

With a sick babe and an overworked husband it has been a LONG week.  Afternoon cup of coffee was a must on a couple of occasions.

I spy a puppy all curled up on a matching blanket. I think he was hiding from my terrors children.

Pillow pile!

Isn’t he too young for 7 Minutes in Heaven?

Dear Brother, I want your animal crackers…you better climb higher.

Projects a plenty going on here, projects a plenty!

The rarest of occasions…napping at the same time.

Project pillow ruffle – success!

When you are chasing a 2.5 year old and almost 9 month old sometimes a chip clip is all you can find for your hair.  It is just the way it is.

This boy wanted afternoon snuggles after school this week and I happily obliged.

Everyone loves it when Daddy comes home, everyone!

I was hoping to have more for you than just kiddos pics, but alas, they dominate 100% of my time and picture taking.
I have failed you again.  All you get is cute babies.

A little school at bathtime.  Yes the U is currently upside down, but all the others are right! :)

Morning Rituals.

Just chillin’

Two teeth in one week = frozen washcloth to chomp on.

OCD tendencies getting the best of him.

“But where do all these bubbles keep coming from?”

In awe of his Nonna, who got him his very own Dyson vacuum.  Every small child’s dream come true right?

Speaking of dreams…

Producing another masterpiece.

Someone figured out how to pull up and is awfully proud of himself!

Bbaby Wayfarers and a Baby gut. Enough said.


Insta-Week {3}

Although I am a few days behind since we are at the start of yet another new week already, here is last week’s camera view!

We kicked off the week celebrating Colter’s birthday last Sunday.  Caden did a great job helping his Daddy blow out his candles and Everett was generous enough to gift his Daddy with a birthday snuggle nap.

I am officially “that mom” who has to drive the Cadillac cart now. It is HUGE and hard to maneuver but the boys love it.

We have acutally been getting some rain/storms which led to power flickering while I cooked dinner – of course it did.

After Caden’s first day of school (more on this to come) I was exhausted and broke down having my first Coke in years.  It was gross.  However it did get me through the evening.

Speaking of school.  Everett tried to go.

Bo discovered the baby gate had been left open during a late night trip upstairs and snuck into his favorite snuggle spot.

Everett has a new favorite high chair companion that is as big as him.

Thrasher is taking full advantage of Everett crawling just as he did with Caden, using him as belly rub machine.  Lucky dog.

Caden has enjoyed several ice cube tray meals recently. A little of this, a little of that. So many choices!

Finishing off the week with my usualy massive chocolate chip cookie recipe (8 dozen) so I can roll up and freeze the dough for later use. Mmmm. Don’t you just want to jump through the picture and have a snack?
