My Funny Kids

Posted Thursday, September 1st, 2011 by Mollie

One morning Ben came running into the house, very excited and shouting “Mommy mommy! A snake in our yard! Come an’ look!”  I was pretty confident that he had NOT seen a snake, but figured I’d better check out whatever he was so worked up about.

Apparently he had never observed a snail before and he was COMPLETELY FASCINATED.  He wanted to know all about them.  Especially the trail of slime.

Look at that snail, running for his life.  Don’t worry, we politely returned him to a bush when we were done observing (we only kill spiders, and sometimes ants).  I know my mom is laughing right now because I used to tell her, “Snails are my friends!” and make little homes for them.

PS- I was planning to add a bunch more funnies to this post, but WordPress is giving me trouble this week and won’t save drafts, so I lost a bunch of work. :(  Hopefully more blogs coming soon!

Photo Hike

Posted Tuesday, July 19th, 2011 by Mollie

Our favorite weekend family activity these days is hiking.  The kids absolutely love it- they  run and climb and throw rocks and chase lizards until they are exhausted and sleep REALLY well that night!  My ulterior motive is turning these “nature walks” into “photography walks”.  I’m trying to scout good locations around Camarillo, since I’m hoping to test the waters of taking on my own photography clients for photo shoots by the end of the year!  The lighting wasn’t perfect since it was a little early in the evening, but I suppose that is good practice for me as well.  What do you think?  Does this place have potential for family photos?







Out takes: just pretend they’re smiling, okay?

P.S.– Natalie would want you to know that those are not tights or leg warmers on her legs, they are “bug protectors” which are very important when hiking!

Matchy-Matchy

It has been about a month since I blogged… May was a very busy month!  I will try to get up to speed, but next week begins my Spring Cleaning.  I just had a couple funny pictures for you today…

I frequently dress the family in coordinating outfits, completely unintentionally.  Last Sunday we were walking up to church when I realized that both Natalie and I were wearing skinny jeans, silver colored shoes, blue ruffled tops, and cardigans!  When we got home I took a picture to mark the occasion, as I usually try to do when that sort of thing happens.

 
A couple weeks before I snapped this one of the kids on our way out the door to a playdate, wearing complimenting outfits (again, I do not do this on purpose, and usually it is someone else who points it out to me!):

 

 

Going back in the archives to October, Natalie and I wore similar outfits to MOPS one day:

 

Just wanted to share those funnies! Hopefully I’ll be back with more soon.

Monday Morning Looks Like…

Posted Monday, March 28th, 2011 by Mollie

We stay home on Mondays (minus my trip to the gym before the kids wake up).  Since we are usually on-the-go every single day, I really look forward to our Mondays at home!  We can stay in our jammies/sweats all day and goof around on mommy’s bed (my kids’ favorite activity).

We  have our little buddy Will on Mondays and we all enjoy his company!

(I just like to play with my new camera.)

Perks include enjoying these birthday presents from my friends Hannah and Tiffany, who obviously have me completely figured out;  and my little dishwasher-in-training (I have high hopes for him).

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Since we couldn’t send everyone a Valentine this year… here are some moments from our Valentine’s Day yesterday. :)
