Beautiful Girl by the Pool

Today is Mother’s Day 2014. We all headed down to Grandpa Joe’s and Grammy Terry’s house to swim. It was a little early for the adults, so only Joe and the kids went in. Nora was our otter though. She was in and out and down the slide a ton. She outlasted everyone else. Here […]

Is it Bedtime Yet?!

I am very blessed, I am very blesssed, I am very blessed – today I had to remind myself of that, repeatedly! Most days I LOVE being a stay at home mom and feel very fortunate that I have that option. Today was not one of those days! Today I would have jumped at the chance to be […]

Liam’s 1st Birthday

One year ago today, our family became complete. Liam Joseph Sekol was born into the world and into our family. He is the son I never knew I wanted (I was convinced that I was more of a “girl mom” than a “boy mom”) and now I could not imagine our lives without him. He […]

Liam’s Birthday Party

Liam Joseph Sekol will be one year old on June 7th. Today we celebrated his first birthday with family and friends. Unfortunately Grandma Proctor and Pa Bill weren’t able to be here, as they had planned because mom has bronchitis so they weren’t able to make the trip – We missed you mom and dad! It […]

STOP Liam!

Liam makes a beeline to the bathroom anytime he hears the door opening. Anna, our recently potty trained 2 year old… often leaves the bathroom door open. Nora, our resident problem solver, decided to make a stop sign with paper and a red crayon and anytime Liam heads to the bathroom she promptly arrives with […]

Mother’s Day Surprise

Matt took Nora to Lowes today and when she got home, she said “mommy, I’m not going to tell you about your Mother’s Day surprise.” LOL Matt had told her not to tell me what they had gotten me while they were out cause it was a surprise, but apparently he forgot to tell her […]

Grandma Proctor’s Birthday 2010

Mom and Dad came out for a visit at the end of April and were here for mom’s birthday. We sure do love birthdays around here and the girls were super excited about helping make and decorate a cake for Grandma Proctor. Happy Birthday Mom/Grandma – we love you!        

Reading Together

Is this not the cutest thing ever?! Nora was “reading” this book and Anna climbed up on the couch next to her. They sat there together for quite some time looking at and talking about the book. I love them.

Trip to the Crayola Factory

The Crayola Factory was having a dinosaur exhibit and Nora is currently obsessed with dinosaurs, so we just had to go check it out. It was a fun day of painting dinosaur stamps, making stuff out of model magic – including a dinosaur that Matt made for Anna, coloring with the sidewalk chalk, drawing on the […]

Easter 2010

When the girls went to bed last night they left their Easter Baskets on the island for the Easter Bunny and when they work up this morning they were gone! Some how we convinced the girls to wait until after breakfast to go looking for them and they helped me make a big yummy breakfast, […]
