I love it when my kids are silly and happy at the same time! Today I was working on my computer in the bedroom and I could hear laughter coming from the living room. A second later the kids came bursting in – they had found 2 pairs of Joey’s racquetball glasses and they thought it was hilarious to put them on. I quickly grabbed the camera and took a photo – my kids are too cute!

Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. – G. K. Chesterton
I heard this quote on twitter today and just loved it. My kids love hearing stories and watching movies and just using their imagination. I love hearing them imagine and play together and I really do think that fairy tales help them to learn about life and how to truly LIVE in it. Thank goodness for good stories!

I’m on a GILMORE GIRLS kick again. This show holds a lot of sentimental value to me. It started after Joey and I had been married for a few months and it was the first show we watched together. We watched every episode together until the show ended and it just became a part of us – our family. Everytime I rewatch it – its like I’m reliving my life and also like I’m a part of Stars Hollow. I seriously want to live in that town! 🙂 Anyways, so I am rewatching it as I am designing and it is always a nice thing. In fact, it makes me want to have another baby girl so I can name her Rory. 🙂

Showers have become the norm around here, but the kids still enjoy an occasional bathtime! Actually the kids always love it – its me that makes them take a shower because its faster. I really am trying to slow down my life because a bath really is a nice thing to do every once in awhile!

I love watching Joey play with the kids. He’s so much better at it than I am. I’m always feeling the stress of my to-do lists and I don’t take the time to get on the floor and play, but Joey does it. It’s not uncommon to find him even playing ponies or dolls with Beth. He’s such a good daddy.

Our day started very early. We are not morning people, but we were able to book a early morning family photo shoot with a photographer in my church. I have been following her blog for awhile and finally got talking to her and was able to do a trade with her – I designed her some design stuff and she did a photo shoot for me. We left the house at 7:30am and went to a fun railroad location and spent about an hour getting fun shots of our family, Joey and I as a couple, and individual shots of the kids. I really can’t wait to see how they turned out! Thank you Maria!

We went to Salt Lake City for church today. We were able to go and be with Brandon and Sabrina as they blessed Kalissa. Afterwards we were able to join friends/family at their house and visit for awhile. We even watched the end of the Colts game at their house (they barely won – but we’ll take it). Then we went home and relaxed for the rest of the day. It was one of those days where we needed comfort food – so for dinner I made some homemade noodles with vegetables and served it over mashed potatoes. SO GOOD!
