Like Father, Like Son

Going through old Facebook posts tonight, and ran across this awesomeness. Made me smile so big, so I thought I’d take a moment and share. Enjoy!

This Week on My Instagram…

We’ve had a lot of really cold weather here lately. This has made me an incredibly grumpy person. However, I have managed to take a few pictures over the last little while, although not nearly as many as I could have.

My favorite thing from this week was actually taken by The Boyfriend. He had to walk Carter to school one day and when he left the house, it was a clear sunny day. By the time he got to school, this is what he was dealing with:

Then, I’ve been working on getting things off My Bucket List, so this week, I picked up some yarn and knitting needles and officially have begun a project.

First night of knittig over and four more chapters of Flatland down 😉

Finally, it was The Boyfriend’s birthday yesterday (although we haven’t slept yet, so it’s still going on for us) and he decided to get our traditional celebratory shots… In a pack:

Pictures from the Past Week

It’s been a warm week weather-wise, even though it’s still all gross and snowy… It’s meant a lot of outside time, especially being that there’s been a lot of time off school. I haven’t gotten nearly as many pictures as I maybe could’ve, but I wanted to share some of my favorites from this past week.

We had a couple really nice days for walks home from school. The only part that sucked at all about this week was that it kept looking like it was a hot sunny day outside and the birds were chirping like spring was just around the corner, and then you’d step outside and it would be this skin tightening bracing cold. The worst day for it was the day that the kids decided they wanted to go down to Grandma’s…

Carter made it about halfway before beginning to complain about the cold. Kenzie couldn’t care less though. He was running and skipping basically all the way to Grandma’s house and once we got there, stayed outside long enough to build a snowman. Keirnan only cared about a bath because for some reason, he really likes taking baths at Grandma’s and Carter is all about the lego.

Today, The Boyfriend and Carter were sitting on the couch and Carter began to pet The Boyfriend. Carter is often very affectionate and cuddly towards his Daddy and oftentimes wants kisses and cuddles from Daddy more than Mommy. The Boyfriend decided to snap a few shots and this is what happened…

Plus, we can’t forget the awesome sauce that I’m posting over on Instagram, like this sexy selfie:

I love bathtime so much 😉

Or this one of my beautiful baby boys, who keep getting more and more handsome with each passing day:

And finally, it’s all about Pokemon in our house right now…

Just the Three of Us

For Christmas this year, The Boyfriend got me a smartphone. We mainly got it because our home phone stopped working for some reason and I’ve been whining that I needed something more portable for picture taking and such. So now, I finally have something that actually works to take pictures with, which I’m super happy about.

I haven’t taken too many pictures with it yet, mainly because I’m not really using it that much. I promised myself that I wouldn’t and that it would mostly be for necessity at this point. I have a lot of work to get done on the computer that can’t be done on the cellphone (and even if it can, I don’t want to) and so I need to keep my distractions very minimal.

However, since the older kids have been gone, it’s just been The Boyfriend, Carter and I. So, I quickly snapped these the other day and thought I would share 😉
