Pictures from Natalie’s Birthday

Posted Saturday, April 14th, 2012 by Mollie

Each of my kids has a “First Year” picture book that they love to look through on their birthday morning. I keep them tucked away most of the time so they stay nice and special.  Natalie LOVED looking through hers and had a lot to say about it!

Later on, we had a little party for her with some of her sweet little friends!

Well, March is over and I’m now the proud mom of a 5-year-old and a 3-year-old… I can hardly believe it!  We had so much fun celebrating their birthdays all month long. I just finished going through all the pictures from the month, so hopefully I can post them before the weekend is over!

Okay guys, I am trying really hard to get back into the swing of blogging. Lately I’ve been organizing family photos and getting them into album form, so dealing with even more pictures when it comes to Facebook or the blog feels like an overload!  However, with my parents leaving for 3 months in Europe very soon, I know they will appreciate the details of daily life. We’ve ALL been completely spoiled by having them move to Camarillo last summer!

Last month Natalie’s class field trip was to the tidepools… it was a beautiful day and we did find some critters!

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!
