This & That

Grant: Always insists on having his polos buttoned all the way.  Has gotten a new hair cut.  Likes to have his own space when frustrated (the sand box or his room).  Can still make Grace laugh the hardest.  Looking forward to the summer. Grace: Quite grown up now and likes to do things herself.  On…

  • I’m curious…what books???

  • The Cardinal, again? That little stinker. Like Grant we can’t wait for summer ourselves.

  • Kim, every picture is sweetness to me. You are just so beautiful and have captured your kiddos so amazingly! I’m also waiting for my peony. Not too much longer, I hope. Loved this post so much!!!

  • I just love these pictures of your babies.

    Darn that cardinal!

  • First of all, I’m in love with Grace’s hat. I also am a fan of those shoes. I saw them at Wal-Mart but they haven’t had her size. They are so cute and colorful.

    Secondly, your shirt is awesome and I love the tradition of Mark getting you an earth day shirt. Only an Oregonian would understand. I want your shirt. Did he make it?

  • Jessica M

    The cardinal!! Bring out the one eyed owl again. Grace has some great expressions in these shots.

  • Quincy

    The kids are cuter than ever!

  • beckikanigan

    Love the update. Your kids are growing so much. I went through some old photo’s yesterday and found a bunch you took while Grant and Logan were playing over by the lake, and of joyschool. They looked so happy! They’ve already changed so much since then.

    Kim…the house we are buying has huge windows and it’s obvious the birds have been flying into them…maybe we can swap stories once we are moved in?!

  • Sara

    I forgot about Mark’s tradition of buying you an Earth Day t-shirt. So sweet! Great pics of the kids!!

Up at 3 a.m.

This little one came wandering into our room at 3 a.m. this morning, she asked me for breakfast.  So far she’s been ok in her big bed, let’s hope this is not the start of something new.

    She is SO cute!! It made me laugh that she asked for breakfast! 🙂

  • Lisa I.

    Oh, I’m nervous for the bed thing! I need to get moving on it though! Ben was always so good about staying in his bed, and he would keep Chris in line, but Jon… I have a feeling he’s going to be wandering out of his room at 3 am too…
    (and these shots are too cute)

  • Carter did that for a couple of weeks. Drove me nuts, but he sure was cute. ALMOST worth the lack of sleep. 🙂
    Hope she decides nighttime is for sleeping!

  • Jessica M

    Heck, I’m up at 3 am. Send her to my house!

  • hope

    She’s still so cute though. So, did you give her breakfast??

  • Must be a hungry night. Sam woke up last night asking for a cookie and then ate two graham crackers before falling back to sleep. She is just sooooo adorable!

  • And how could you resist a face like that??? (even at 3 am) I think I would have made her eggs and pancakes if she’d asked. 🙂

  • Cami

    I’m so sorry. I remember those days. Good Luck!

  • Quincy

    I think you should take some 3 AM pictures. 😉

  • Sara

    Why are they totally NOT cute at 3 am? Here’s to hoping for a long good nights rest.

  • That’s when I pull the covers over my head and let dear hubby take care of the cuteness that they radiate at 3 am. 🙂 She sure is a cutie and love those shots!

  • Karen

    Oh my. It is always such an adjustment. At least she is cute! Hope is was better last night.

  • Those pictures are precious. Especially love the top one! We haven’t made the switch yet to a big boy bed. I’m going to tackle that and potty training this summer. Wish me luck.

  • E

    Love the pictures! Your family is so adorable. You are brave – C’s is going to stay in her crib forever.


This handsome got a hair cut: And this little on didn’t quite know what to think of the camera today:

  • oooooooh….pretty in pink. I want a dress like Gracie’s! I love her hair (and Grant’s haircut, too).

  • I am loving Gracie’s long locks. It’s really growing in now. I can’t wait…

  • I can’t believe how big they are getting. It just looks so lovely there in AL — I want to jump in the pictures for a visit.

  • Jessica M

    I love Grace’s outfit! How’s the big girl bed coming?

  • Natalie

    Grant is too cute with that haircut and his bow tie. 🙂 And so is Grace, her dress is adorable.


The storms didn’t let us down, they’ve been rumbling all day and I like it.  So inside we’ve been, accomplishing quite a bit!  Grace is sleeping in her big girl bed for the first time tonight, wish us luck! More of my loves… And a couple I found hiding in some folders:

  • Love the shadow pictures. I might try that. Fun. Good luck tonight. I hope you can get some sleep. I remember the first night I put my twins in their big kid beds. I think I was up a couple of times. Not too bad.

I love the weekends and always love a good t-storm.

Mark and Grant went camping tonight.  Grace and I are reorganizing everything.  I’ve been painting Grant’s furniture black, Grace is inheriting Grant’s old bed, which I repainted white.  Tomorrow we’ll continue to get projects done and wait for a good t-storm to roll through.  Loving these two more than ever…

    Look at Grace’s long hair! Stay safe from the tornados!

    I love weekends, too! Saturday is the only day I don’t wake up to an alarm clock! Which I really don’t like. And when I wake up I see my children enjoying some peace, quiet and games together usually. Have a great project day!!
