Life These Days!

My life is pretty well documented by my iPhone's photo stream, so I figured I'd post some random pics and elaborate on them. Once again, forgive typos as I'm typing with thumbs on a phone. :) 
This was a long time ago now. Aaron was a big help carrying wood in for the stove all winter. 
This girlie is just cute. Also a long time ago. 
This desk was given to me. So I turned it into this: 
I decided I really like to paint. I made my own chalk paint for this. 

I also painted my door. 
We're close to done with my pretty laundry room! I made these curtains to cover up cluttered shelves where I keep laundry soap and all that stuff. 

Jacob bought this beauty a few months ago. I LOVE it and it's the highlight if my red kitchen. If you can't tell, I'm really into the red and turquoise right now. I'll probably hate it eventually. Lol! 

These two are something else. Totally adorable together! 
We played scrabble on cold snowy days. 
It snowed. A LOT. We got like a lot of inches...18 total maybe? 12 one day and a few days later bunches more. I'm good at precise measurements like that. 
This is what happens when I take hubby in Joann's...
Love this wall words thingy in my kitchen. :) 
He likes Chloe's headbands. 
Chloe occasionally leaks. 
We drank yummy coffee. 
Aaron's a dirty little boy. What else would I expect? He loves mud. 
Darn if she isn't still cute! 
We're in the process of building railing around the whole porch. This was taken a few weeks ago and we have a couple more sections done now. 
He squeezes mommy tight. :)
Jacob bought me new running shoes for my birthday. birthday is a whole 'nother story. We went to Louisville and got lost all day. Fun time and funny memories. We did eat Olive Garden, which pretty much made up for everything else. 
Found Aaron a hat at a thrift store so he can stop stealing daddy's. 
And this. This is my life. I love this. 
This is what happens when Uncle E comes over. 
Aaron really likes taking pictures with me. 

So that's about it. Jacob's still working in ft. Knox so he's gone a LOT...a regular week is about 60 hrs. My days are full of house stuff, babies, meal planning and cooking, and I've recently taken up running with a couple of my sisters in law. I started a couple months ago and hurt my knee a couple weeks in. I got the new shoes and now I'm on week 2 again. This morning we ran 30 seconds and walked 30 seconds...for 30 min. It sounds easier than it is, at least when you're as out of shape as I am. Lol We should be able to run a 5k in a couple months. Mmhhmm. 

Guess that's all folks. See ya later! :) 


  1. I loved your pictures and related comments =) Your little ones are growing up - it is SO fun to watch it, isn't it? And the cutest is those little boys when they follow in Daddy's footsteps literally =)
    Love the laundry, and your painting projects - makes quite a difference from my all white =)
    P.S. That snow is just out of this world for me!!!! I just can't imagine it, and right now, with feeling the "cold" so much, I can't think how terribly COLD it would be!!!!

  2. Aw! Aaron and Chloe are sooo cute! So is your house! The red and turquoise is pretty. Miss y'all! :)
