These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from the last couple weeks that I want to remember forever.
Hadley (22 months) loves riding on Daddy's shoulders:
In 2017, Tal and I are planning to start updating our laundry room and 3 bathrooms. Over the last few weeks, we have been shopping for tile and developing a design plan. We like the tile collection below. It is an off-white marble-like porcelain tile with grey and brown veining. The collection includes 5 different sizes of tile with same subtle pattern. To keep our laundry room and bathrooms cohesive, we plan to use tile from the same collection...but alternate the sizes and shapes to keep the rooms interesting. For example, we are thinking about using the hex tile on the bathroom floor in the half bathroom, as well as on the shower floor in the master bathroom. We might use the large subway tiles on the walls of the master bathroom shower but lay them in a herringbone pattern in the laundry room.
Savannah LOVES her name plate and initials (SEA in Seastar) on her bike:
Our family has been soaking up the last few weeks of summer by swimming at Falls Lake once a week.Check out Tal and Hadley below. We have the beach practically to ourselves!
Savannah wanted me to take a picture of her with the orange Halloween shirt that she picked out to wear at the pumpkin farm:
Savannah took a selfie wearing a chef hat:
On Labor Day, the girls and I went to the mall...
...where we played in the play area and went out to lunch:
Savannah did a great job writing about how to be a good citizen:
When Savannah was 20 months old, she dressed up as a ladybug for Halloween (shown below):
A few days ago, I got the ladybug costume out of our attic, so Hadley could wear it for Halloween this year. Savannah thought it was hilarious that she could still fit into the costume...6 years later!
Today Tal and I enjoyed a rare, impromptu lunch date (at Pizza Hut) while Savannah was at school and Hadley was at her babysitter's house. I had the day off from school. Tal called in sick to work, so he could get some rest and go to urgent care for an asthma attack. (Being around the hay and corn at the pumpkin farm on Saturday triggered his allergies and asthma.) Thankfully, Tal is on the road to recovery after doing a breathing treatment, getting some meds, and sleeping most of the day:
