I am so behind on photos and blogging.:(


These pictures were taken at the end of September- it was so hot that Eva got the sprinkler out after school


Hudson is obsessed with water


Any time the hose comes out he is right there



My fave


I sure do love this dog



He grew up way too fast


Gretchen P - Your pictures are wonderful! They don’t listen when we tell them to stop growing up! He is going to do great things in life!

Susan/Gramma - These are great photos of Austin. Remember to send us some.

Lisa - Great pictures!

hannah - These are awesome…and he stinks. I just keep telling Dmitry that he is grounded ๐Ÿ˜‰ it went by way too fast.

Around 470

I so wanted to blog more but I find it so hard these days!


Fall has been pretty amazing so far


It’s very busy but so very full


I am finally feeling settled into our house and our neighborhood


I have met so many nice cool people lately.


But home is my fave place to be:)


Have I mentioned that I love this dog? He turned one a couple days ago.


I love him so much:)


But he’s still really bad.


They did some roof cleaning…


When she doesn’t want her picture taken….


This dude that was eating my basil. I let him. I mean it’s almost the end of the season and I still have TONS! I have never had a crop this amazing. I am for sure planting a big organic garden next year!


Bug Life- Eva and Cole LOVED him


My cutie pie


This dude has been home sick part of the week and then kept me up all last night texting and calling me. So into the doctor he went today. Bronchitis. Maybe pneumonia. Poor B. Always.


But got some antibiotics and then wanted to take the new Jeep out


And I leave you with this little dude. Who has a million friends. That drive Andy crazy. It’s like the gophers on Caddie Shack.


Mid September

Not sure how this year flew by. I mean I have just gotten used to writing 2015.


So much has happened this year. Eva going to school all day, Blake got his drivers license, trips to California and the beach, Austin’s Senior year……


And now Fall is almost here


I love Fall.


Blake is begging for a car


I am making this for dinner tonight. I will let you know how it goes.


Next month Andy and I are going to London and Paris. Without kids.


I have never been


And I get weird about leaving my kids


But I’m also excited.


And happy that my parents will come spend the week with my kiddos so I know they are in good hands


Can you tell I am more excited for Paris than London?

If I knew how to crochet I would totally make this blanket


And just because there is nothing cuter….


Gretchen P - Have a great time in London and Paris. I have never been either, can’t wait to see your pictures.

Elizabeth - Oh how wonderful Fall in Paris. That will be so romantic and pretty!! I got weird leaving my kids when I went to Dallas and that was onoy Dallas not across the country so I would be on edge too. But you will be fine once you get there. I can’t wait to see your pics too!

Hannah - Okay, so I’m totally jealous of your couple trip…but I am not sure how you are going to do it. I freaked out and canceled a weekend trip that was only 4 hours away. I’m so weird about leaving my kids. Plus we don’t really have family to take care of them so… I can’t wait to see your pictures! You and Andy are going to have a blast!

I’m totally overwhelmed by how fast this year has gone by. It was just Spring and now it’s fall. It’s like the year drags till March and then it flies by. I never get used to it.

I deleted my instagram. Like totally deleted. I’m down to just my private little blog world. So weird and yet so cool! You’ll have to make sure you post all your insta dumps on here so I can keep up!

Angie U - We literally just got back from a 10 day trip to Alsace/Paris/London! Food and drink a real highlight of the entire trip. especially in France. Musee d’Orsay was a favorite as was the Arc de Triumph…climb the stairs for the best view of the city! We saw “Gypsy” in London at the Savoy..highly recommend it! The food in London just doesn’t come close..but the sights are spectacular!
PS My babies are all grown up but sure understand the heartstrings being pulled! Wifi connections kept us in touch!


The weekend was packed with sports and get togethers and next thing you know it’s over.


Cole and all his buddies decided to do band. Let’s just say be happy this blog doesn’t come with sound. Hudson hides when he pulls out the trombone. I was hoping his guitar lessons would be enough but I guess not.


Andy hung up my new mailbox on our side porch. Love it!! We were using our old mailbox that was just sitting on the ground. SLOWLY we are getting this house pulled together!


I just call this one “mess” with a cute boy thrown in.


She had gymnastics


Worst dog ever.


We set up the telescope on our front porch. So far we have seen nothing.


No we aren’t spying on our neighbors:)


Hanging out with this guy


He’s cute but so naughty


And wants to eat non-stop.

Linda - My house needs that mailbox! Love it.
