Box O’ Fun

Apparently the plethora of toys in our house don’t hold a candle to the fun to be had in a giant cardboard box.

This should make Christmas shopping a lot easier!

Another picture dump

Here’s another one my typical posts - random recent pictures with short captions.  It’s all I’ve got these days.  Enjoy.

Eli recently enjoyed his first corndog.IMG_1697 
I think he liked it.IMG_1702

This is the face Eli makes these days when I ask him to smile for the camera.  Lovely…IMG_1753

Tessa has the right idea.

New fashion trend?

The weather was beautiful on Labor Day, so we decided to go to one of our favorite outdoor spots – Tannehill State Park.

We took a walk on our trail.

And splashed in the springs.

Disclaimer on the following videos:  My house is a disaster.  Garbage is overflowing, drawers and cabinets are open, random things are strewn on the floor, and counters and tabletops are covered with stuff.  Not to worry, though.  My house only looks like this about 85% of the time.  10% of the time it’s probably worse, and maybe 5% of the time it’s clean(ish).  I am ashamedly giving you this little peak because I want to document these memories of everyday life for myself.  Judge away about my domestication skills.  I judge myself all the time.  Just please don’t call child protective services :).

Birthday party

I’ve been incredibly busy lately and haven’t had much time to picture dump blog, but I figured I should get pictures of Tessa’s birthday party posted before her next one rolls around. 

We had a low key party at home with some of our family and friends.  Fun was had by all.

Our little party princess.

Time for cake! She wasn’t too thrilled at first…IMG_1631 
But then warmed up to it and dug in. IMG_1643 IMG_1652  IMG_1658

Aunt Jan thought the green icing would make great boogers.IMG_1662 IMG_1663 IMG_1666


Opening presents.  And no, I didn’t wet my pants.  I just picked up wet kids outside.  I thought some clarification wouldn’t hurt.IMG_1674 IMG_1686

Uh….  Yeah.  After the party was over I had to keep the crown and Tessa’s “toot-toot” out of reach of this little guy.  Gotta start enforcing those gender stereotypes early. :)IMG_1691IMG_1690

As exhausting as I find it to throw these things, we had a great time celebrating our little girl’s big day!
