hello monday

I was thinking last night about why it is I don't write as much here anymore.  It's not really a time thing; I spend plenty of time dinking around the internet (hello facebook and pinterest!).  I think I really just don't feel like I have as much to say.  My kids aren't as cute anymore, don't do the endearing stuff quite as often...
but even still, I don't want to take that stuff for granted.  I still want to document our life.

I think it also has to do with the fact that I just don't take pictures anymore.  And I don't love rambling on here without pictures.
My kids aren't into pictures just for the fun of it, and I can't usually show the faces of our foster kids, so that's no fun. :(
I can't remember the last time I picked up a real camera... it's all phone camera all the time these days.  Better than nothing I guess.  Instagram to the rescue.
Maybe I'll be better about it when the sun comes out a little more regularly...

Regardless, here are some random pics of life around here lately...

After dinner drinks the other night...
His, Hers and baby's ;)

Trying (but failing) to capture some first smiles on camera...

Sawyer's new favorite chair (he blew his savings on it)...

Tackling the mess in my craft room dining room...

Savannah entertaining herself with self portraits during her brother's baseball practice...

Baby doll kisses...

Happy Monday y'all!

I totally hear ya on the not blogging/not taking pictures. I think iphone cameras have made us slackers in the picture-taking arena:) I still read your blog!

your kids are still cute!!! ;)

but i totally understand where you're coming from... i find myself having a lot more pictures/things to say about vivi only because she's still doing funny things. but also... i wonder how much/how long i want to continue to share about max now that he's in 'real' school and starting to have his own life, sort of. you know? i have a HUGE post on kindergarten all written up and i'm sort of wondering if it will be my last in-depth post on him. i mean... he's obviously only five, so i have time, but at what point do i need to pull back a little? i want to document everything, but don't want to put anyting out on the internet that he wouldn't want me to when he's older. i don't read many bloggers other than you with kids that are a bit older, so i'm never really all that sure how to handle it.

i also don't like posting without pictures and it's SO HARD to take pictures in the winter! hopefully the extra hour of daylight in the evening will help. :)
