My dear friends from Boston came out to visit me.  Gina had been booked to fly out for a month and when I arrived at the airport I found out that she brought Mary as a surprise!   Continue reading “Pictures from Mary & Gina’s Visit” »

Rachel’s respite facility, Megan’s Place, had a family appreciation party over the weekend.  I had a calorie free cookie, got slobbered on by my favorite Rachel and jumped at the chance to be 6 again and have my picture taken with Santa.  Life is too short to miss out on a Santa Selfie.  <3

Winter is here in Colorado

Winter is here in ColoradoIts been really cold in Colorado for the last few days it started Monday the 11 November 2014. My Granny was coming from Boston and it was Zero visibility and Zero degrees it was hard for my mom aka creator of this web site to drive there was alot of accidents on the way to to the airport we found 75 UPS TRUCKS!!!!! The next day was Veterans day and the snow was still falling the temperature was 11 degrees at the highest point of the day. On the day granny came we had a chicken dinner. Today it is Thursday and it is very cold but my mother took us to Savers and we got a lot of good stuff. The best thing in my opinion is a VCR player we bought.

Tonight is still very cold and icy.

This is the last couple of hours where my boys are technically both 8. Today is London’s 9th birthday and on September 30th Boston turned 8. A gift that I mentally decided to give the boys was being on my phone less. Facebook, while fun, is a huge distraction for me. My iPhone takes pictures, easily, but doesn’t provide me with the quality I’d like to archive long-term.

I have a really nice camera which I splurged on but haven’t really used it. It is pretty stupid. I have 4 beautiful children and a gorgeous jeep. The season is autumn and the leaves are gorgeous.

So this afternoon I handed the boys specific colored shirts to contrast with each other but also to celebrate the season. I like the fall, I think just about everyone I know would pick this as their favorite season.

New England definitely has prettier foliage than Colorado but it is still beautiful here. I haven’t spent an Autumn in Colorado since 2005 when London was born at our home in Colorado Springs.

Here are my “Irish Twins.” London is wearing a burnt orange waffle shirt and Boston is, well, Boston. Boston always needs a haircut or he looks like he has just been cured of lice. Love my boys.

He is constantly "fake smiling."  Capturing one that is real is usually pretty hard because when it usually indicates he is up to mischief.
