Memories you capture with your cell phone camera.

Simple, silly and everyday moments that make up our lives.

We’ll miss them if we’re not careful.

You don’t have to use Instagram (I’m jeannettg) but link up posts can only be made up of cell phone pics.  Because it’s my linky party and I’m kinda bossy like that anyway.

Dear friends of ours moved to Denver a few years ago, but when they were in town visiting this week, they were able to stop by.

They have 7 kids (and another on the way! yay!)…plus our 4 made 11 kids.

Hot dogs and chips for dinner…here kids, have a little sodium tonight…

Oh well, it was quick and easy.  I think they’ll live.

My mother in law took Henry and Lucy for the week…which left me with these two goofballs.

The house was SO quiet this week.

We’ve never had only two kids before.  So it was super weird.

Admittedly, it was nice at first.  But then it got boring.  I’ll take the crazy loudness if it brings with it the silly laughs too.

They come home tomorrow and I’m getting anxious to see those sweet faces again.

With the Bigs gone, this girl got lots of love this week.

I think she loved it at first, but seemed to get bored and really grumpy as the week moved along.  Looks like they might just like each other after all!

This morning she’s sick and was up half the night crying (more than Owen was!)…hoping to avoid a seizure today.


I missed my wedding ring.

It’s small and unassuming, but it’s mine and I love it.

I always meant to buy a fake ring when I was pregnant with Henry but never got around to it.

Instead, I opted for getting dirty looks from old ladies at the grocery store.

Normally I like to get my eyebrows threaded…but it had been a while and the beast was needing to be tamed.

Bushy brows are no longer…but I’ll be sure to remember to make a threading appointment in the future…it hurt!  And took forever!!!

Dear Albertsons,

Your summer game is giving me anxiety.

I keep opening game pieces convinced that SC04 will be there…to no avail.

A million dollars would be rad.  Let’s make it happen for me, okay?

Love, j.

Owen and I went fabric shopping.

Pretty sure this is the only time I’ll be able to do this without hearing constant complaints of “are you done yet mom?!”  “can we go now?”

Why can’t boys appreciate the excitement of fabric like we can????

A sweet friend stopped by with a gift for Owen.

Love it.  A lot.

And I’ll end with a squishy baby picture.

Just because I can.

Happy week friends!

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.

    Gotta get back to this. Haven’t gotten back into reading blogs and stuff since I took a break. Probably good, for the most part. :) Owen looks sweet. Maybe we’ll see you if you’re at church. We are here visiting with my daughter from Oregon. love you

    I saw you post that cute little onesie on InstaGram the other day and LOVED it! Any clue where she got it from? I’d love to snag one later on myself.

    Okay, first, tell me about threading. Because I have crazy eyebrows that I need to tame. You know it’s bad when the waxing lady laughs at your eyebrows and says “I’ve never seen such CURLY eyebrows before.” Yeah. How does threading compare to waxing?
    Second, Owen is seriously cute.
    Third, I am so sorry that I posted a video and a map of our attempt to find a cabin without knowing the directions. I usually only do instagram posts, but they seemed appropriate for a week in review post. I’m not sure if you were referring to my last week’s post or not, but.
    Have a good week.

    I also get my eyebrows threaded with one of my best friends. It is so much better than plucking. This reminds me I need to go. ;) I have a 1.5 yr old son and I take him to the fabric store to much probably, He definitely has a limit and this week while teaching him the word fabric it came out sounding like a different f word. Oh the embarrassment. :)

    LOVE the fabrics! What are you making with them? I too remember all the dirty looks when I was too swollen to wear my wedding ring pregnant. Now that they are all older, the biggest misunderstanding blunder I always run into is people assuming that since my first son is 4 1/2 years older than my middle child, and looks nothing like the other 2 smaller children…well of course he must be from a previous relationship which he isn’t !! My husband and I just had problems conceiving for a while!

    I am obsessing over the same Albertson’s game. And I need the same game piece! In fact in a month, I’ve only come up with 1 new piece…all the others I’ve gotten were repeats. I’m thinking they release them in batches, so I’m hoping a new batch with new numbers come out soon!
