yesterday at 16:45. Facebook
We went out to lunch today, just Colin and the parents. :) Ella's going to have time alone with us tomorrow while Colin is at an audition workshop, so we took the opportunity to go out while Ella's in school today. :) Colin and I spend all day together but I think it's still important to make special moments in the everyday. <3 <3 <3

THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!! :D I made this collage for our Throwback Pic from January 2011, 6 years ago. :) It doesn't look like that this year, all our snow is gone! lol But I have a feeling we'll get more before the winter is over, I'm just not sure I'll get the kids to play around in it like they used to. :) <3 <3 <3

Here is this week's Colin Asks video. :) <3 <3 <3
THROWBACK THURSDAY!!!! We had a little trouble this morning, finding a Throwback pic, so we went a little further back than usual. LOL This picture is from the very early 80s, I think, and it's me :D. I don't have very many pictures of myself as a child, so this is one that is a picture of a picture that was emailed to me, but I'm just glad to have it in some form. :) Colin picked this one...

While large parts of the country seems to be getting a lot of snow, here in our part of Michigan, it's all melting! We hope you're having a good Wednesday. We're going to huddle inside and hide from the wind. :) <3 <3 <3
Here is this week's Colin Asks video! <3 <3 <3
It was kind of a big day for our family today, Miss Ella got her ears pierced! :) She'd requested to do so several weeks ago, so after a lot of discussion, today was the day. :D She was so brave! I was so proud of her. :) Colin and Dad were too, but they were mostly sad that she's growing up. Lol <3 <3 <3
When we were at the store today Ella was getting a lot of compliments on her adorable outfit so we thought it would be really cute to take some pictures in the new area they were setting up to look like Italy. :-) I let the teenager take the pictures which explains the last few. LOL <3 <3 <3
THROWBACK THURSDAY!!! Today's Throwback pics are from the beginning of 2008, when Colin was 4, and Ella had just turned 1. :) These are a couple of silly pictures, in the first one, I had just caught baby Ella trying to snag a candy cane. LOL In the second picture, Colin was inspired by sunlight to become a Jedi. :D <3 <3 <3
Colin just loves to goof around with Snapchat. Lol This one makes me laugh because of his face at the end. LOL <3 <3 <3
Hey! It's the first Colin Asks of 2017! :D <3 <3 <3
Happy 2017 to all of you, our huge extended family. Ella made this for all of you. :D We hope the first day of this new year has been peaceful, joyful and full of promise. <3 And remember, we're going to make this The Year of Kindness, because we can change the world with love, I know we can. <3 <3 <3
As 2016 grinds to a halt, I thought I'd take a look back on our year. :) This was the year of a bunch of changes for us, that I forgot about until I looked back. First of all, both kids were diagnosed with scoliosis this year, and Colin got his brace in April, although it was only recently we were told he has to wear it full time now. I posted yesterday about the changes in Ella because of...

Happy New Year's Eve everyone!!! <3 I hope your celebrations tonight suit exactly how you want to ring in the new year, and I pray you all stay safe. :) We went to the store for provisions, our new year's celebrations are going to take the form of junk food and a Ghostbusters marathon. :D <3 <3 <3
THROWBACK THURSDAY!!! For today's Throwback pictures, we decided to revisit Ella's 1-year photo shoot. :) It did not go well. lol We managed to get a handful of usable pictures, but not easily. lol She did NOT enjoy the whole process, and you can see my shadow in a lot of the pictures because I had to be rightthere. lol These are the pictures from that photo shoot that Ella chose to share, so...

We went out to celebrate Ella's birthday this evening. :D <3 <3 <3
Ten years ago today, our family got a little bit bigger and our lives got a whole lot pinker. Happy Birthday to our Princess, our Fashionista, our Rockhound, our Bookworm, our Artist, our Animal lover, our little Rainbow. We love you Ella, and we can't believe you are 10 already. <3 <3 <3
You know how much I love to make comparison photos, lol, and when I realized I had taken similar pictures two Christmas Eves in a row, I just had to. lol Of course, the first big difference I noticed was Colin, he looks like a totally different kid! But I also vaguely noticed that the dad looks shorter this year, but I figured it was the camera angle or Colin's height, but if you look closer,...

For the second year in a row, we're spending our Christmas Eve morning at the movie theater watching Star Wars. :D <3 <3 <3
