Life Lately: In August…

Life Lately: In August…

Here are some things about our August… Life Lately Outings: We had overnights with both of our families.  We also enjoyed the Friday Farmer’s Market in town, Touch-a-Truck, Beatles tribute band (British Invasion), Led Zeppelin tribute band (Get the Led Out) with Lo’s family (minus […]

Happy Birthday Lo! and swim fun

Happy Birthday Lo! and swim fun

While Lo was slaving away at work on his birthday, I met a friend at the pool for a few hours with the kids.  Luckily her kids are older and can swim, so she was able to help out with mine.  Jenson has a puddle […]

Mother’s Day with 2

Mother’s Day with 2

I never wrote about my first Mother’s Day with 2 kids because I have 2 kids and find it hard to get anything done.  I had a fantastic day.  My parents were in town with my niece for her volleyball tournament, so I got to […]

Snippets from our week

Snippets from our week

Jenson watches a couple of shows in the morning before Marlowe gets up – otherwise known as mommy time (when I either get on the computer, or get stuff ready if we are going somewhere).  He picks between a few shows (Sesame Street, Super Why?, […]

Marlowe is almost 4 weeks old now and we are so in love with her.  Jenson loves her so much too and loves kissing her and holding her.  Since we’ve done this before, having a newborn isn’t as scary, but it’s more complicated with a […]

Christmas Day 2015

Christmas Day 2015

We stayed at home on Christmas Day since we wanted to remain close to Columbus in case the baby came early (spoiler alert….she didn’t).  It was a really nice and relaxing day with just our little family.  We started the day when Jenson woke up […]

A beautiful Christmas Eve

A beautiful Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve was an absolutely beautiful day.  It was about 65 degrees outside and sunny, so we took full advantage and played outside for over an hour before lunch. Maternity shadow picture…not very flattering with my baggy sweats, but that’s life. It was warm enough […]

Early Christmas Celebration

Early Christmas Celebration

Since we weren’t sure when the baby would come, we planned an early Christmas with Loren’s family for the weekend before Christmas.  My doctor seemed sure the baby would come early, so we wanted to be at home for the week or so before my […]
