When it looks like Valentine’s Day on the tubing hill.
I got that tween vibe from her tonight that I might embarrass her in front of her friends so I made sure to give her a huge kiss and a bear hug and hovered extra long and talked too loud.....I didn’t, I wouldn’t, I won’t....tonight anyway.
Searching for warm weather.
Night sledding is magical until Georgia shrieks that she sees a coyote and sends us all running inside.
My babies are cute. And always the best part of any year or decade or lifetime.
He’s fairly sure he’ll be buddies with Shaun White by the end of the month.
Leaving my tree up longer than I ever have for one more Christmas party next Sunday. Don’t love it. Don’t hate it either.
Two little angel babies from heaven.
Merry Christmas Eve. 🎄 🎁
Fight starts in 3....2..............
Oh hey. Sometimes you do crazy things as a parent like take a hamster to the vet and pay for it to get a mite vaccination. 🐹
It’s been a couple years since we’ve done family pics. It’s always worth the wait with @lisakaeruff @carhartt @ellenrutt #grandrapids
He gets banished to my bedroom every week during Odyssey of the Mind practice but he doesn’t mind because it means he can watch a movie and eat veggie straws in my bed.
Five years ago tonight we had come home from Georgia’s kindergarten conference to a phone call that this amazing little boy was born and could we come meet him in the morning? We definitely could and we did.....and he was amazing and perfect and the little boy I needed even though I never knew I needed a little boy and the best brother for Georgia and so much more. But here we are....and he’s five; a whole hand!! I love this dude so much, and even when he pretends he can’t walk, “forgets” how to get to his room so he can’t get ready for bed, is the pickiest eater ever and reminds us all that we’re interrupting him he’s also singing “Old Town Road” as loud as he can, giving the best hugs, begs me to snuggle him, gets so excited to show me a LEGO creation and tells me that he’s engaged to me. Five years swooshed by so fast and I’m so glad I got to be along for the ride. Happy birthday Crosby boy. Love you forever!
❤️ She’s the first person he wanted to make eye contact with and keep staring at when he was embarrassed while we all sang happy birthday to him. For as much as they fight....they also can get along and play made up games for hours. Hard to believe they’ve been each other’s first choice for five years. ❤️
He’s five tomorrow. Which is so crazy to me. He got the four-wheeler he’s been dying to have. Although I’m sure he thinks he’s ready for the real deal.
We’ve got Queen Elizabeth and her corgi, Darth Vader, and a wintry mix.
Day Made. “Pop Pop said I could actually keep all these army guys.”
Crosby’s at Gaga & Pop Pop’s for the weekend so we’re hitting up all the essentials sans the almost five year old on G’s half day.....like the new @madewell that Grand Rapids FINALLY has!!!!😍
