The little things

The other day as I was getting dinner ready, I was going back and forth to Maelyns high chair giving her more snacks until I could get things finished. As I was walking back and forth, Cheerios kept sticking to my feet...
And after the kids were in bed I went into the bathroom to see a diaper half folded as I had hurried to give baths to the kids. It was after those two moments that I stopped and thought how fast these moments go. Soon I won't have Cheerios stuck to my feet and I won't be seeing diapers around the house. It's all these little things that I know will be missed. So I have been trying to capture some of those moments. 
Lots of diapers 
I walked by the fan the other day to see it like this. The receipt on the side callen calls the motor. It makes a real loud sound when the fans on, callens favorite part. 

I went to take a drink of my water to find a nerf bullet on the straw. 
Some days seem long and tiring but I know the moments go by quick so I'm trying more to cherish each one~


We love spending time outside!

Saturday was such a fun day. I'm so glad we were able to go to the curriers to celebrate Cameron's graduation and birthday. And see lots of family. I was so sad to leave, but yet I left feeling so happy inside. I love my family so much and am so beyond blessed to have all of them. It's fun having all the kids together too. 

I got these next two from Erika's blog;) it was soooo special getting to see Gram!!! It had been two years! She is so special to every single one of us. And whenever we get to see her it makes us so happy. I wished I had gotten one of her and maelyn as it was her first time meeting her. Next visit up I will. 
Matt and Erika's house and property is amazing. Callen had a blast in the basketball court. 

Auntie Erika loves these two babies:)

And so does auntie shell. lots of lovin going on!

I am thankful for chad. He is a great dad to these two. Callen loves him so much and is always so excited when he gets home from work. They spend the evenings together most nights. Building fires, cutting the grass, riding bikes, swinging or wrestling. And maelyn has been getting so excited too when chad comes home. Saying datd dadt, kicking her legs and moving her arms all crazy until he picks her up:) it's so cute. 


Callen came down with a fever last week. You know he is sick when he is on my bed just about all day. I was thankful when he fell asleep in he afternoon I know he needed the extra rest.
