Wordless Wednesday (Wreck This Wednesday)


A page from my Wreck This Journal


Happy Halloween!

I love the holidays, and even though my kids are not quite to that point where they understand what is coming, I get excited enough for the both of us!!

When I got home from work tonight, Zander was all excited about “the candy”even though I am fairly certain he wasn’t quite sure HOW we were going to be getting the candy. And Kyrie was racing Dad to the door every time we got trick or treaters, so she could wave hi and bye. They were both very impatient when I decided I had to get pictures before¬†they were all tired out.

When we finally got out the door, Dad grabbed the wagon so Kyrie’s little legs wouldn’t get tired. we had a blast going house to house, and Kyrie QUICKLY picked up on how this trick or treat thing worked. She practically though herself outta the wagon at each new house, and even attempted to go inside a few of them. Afterwards she would race back to the wagon, candy bucket firmly in hand, and throw herself right back in.

Zander loved it too, although he deemed the houses with spooky decorations and lights “scary, Mama”. We tried to get them both to say trick or treat… no such luck. Maybe we will master that next year. For the majority of them, Zander just stared with wide eyes as he held out his bucket for candy. And little miss Kyrie was yelling “tank ooo” all the way up to the houses and back to the wagon.

Life with kids may be hectic, but damn if it isn’t rewarding. =)

Catching up on Photo A Day Challenge for May: Days 12-18

Day 12: A Close Up

Day 13: In Your Bag

There is SOOO much more in my bag, but here is a sneak peak. My nametag and tie for work, allergy medicine (thank goodness), energy pills (for the nights I close), my glasses cleaning kit, sweet pea spray, my makeup bag of essentials (eyeliner, mascara, pencil sharpener, babylips and eyelash curler), my wallet, my card holder, my Burt’s Bees and my “manicure” kit (when I chew on my fingernails I don’t stop, so this is to help it).

Day 14:  Something You Are Reading


I actually just finished this book, but I loved it even if the ending did leave a lot of questions. They are a few playlists in here I plan to check out.

Day 15: Happiness


I love that these kids have their Nana. She is so wonderful and I only wish they could see her more often.

Day 16: Morning


These two are literally my alarm clock. They decide when I get up, and aside from Josh laying next to me, they are the first faces I see in the morning!

Day 17: Water


I am not one to take nature shots, so this is the best I got for water.

Day 18: Something You Bought


A new Smashbook!

Wordless Wednesday

This is my first free Wordless Wednesday of May. I had certain guidelines for my past Wednesdays, but I’ve decided to give myself a little freedom here!!

Watching these two grow up together, fight and learn to play WITH each other, just makes my heart melt. Seeing Zander give Kyrie a toy, or hearing Kyrie giggle at Zander jumping over my legs, watching them play in a box together… all of this just makes me so happy. A love between siblings is a beautiful thing, and watching it blossom between these two is possibly one of my favorite parts of mommyhood. =)


Zander wasn’t sure what to do with this “thing” we put in his lap.


He quickly became interested, and anytime she would cry, he would bring us her blanket or bottle.


Before his sister could crawl (and therefore get his toys), Zander thought she was the best thing ever!


The day I looked back and saw Zander holding Kyrie’s hand with this big smile on his face… I was wiping away tears. Sentimental mommy moment.


They are quickly becoming friends, although they still have their moments.


Watching them play in this box together over the past few days has been endlessly entertaining. I can’t believe how many pictures and videos I have taken.
