more of the same...

when the blog originated life seemed more thrilling.  we had a lot of interesting stuff to post. 
now, i post pictures & more pictures.  pictures of my kids at home.  not by a pond, not strolling downtown, not apple picking, on an exciting day trip?  no.   
but at home.  
this is where we are now.
school for langston & some days edward, lyda with me, pick up, home, an occasional playdate or afternoon activity.  
(many moments - me trying to figure out a camera whose instructions were intended for one much more intelligent) 
the blog - as entertaining?  no.
some of our afternoons trying?  yes.  
But, these precious kiddos are growing way too quickly.  what's the harm in capturing moments, even if the images are of simple times at home together?
an angel from heaven, our lovable imp, and precious lyda.  these are the moments i'll grasp for five years from now

the 1/2
is it here already?  when pregnant i thought it a great idea to sign up for the memphis 1/2 marathon.  13 miles is very doable, i ran it last year pregnant, and i'll have plenty of time to get a couple of long runs in post baby.  unfortunately post lyda,  i'm not quite ready to begin pounding the pavement in september.  i am however extremely stubborn, and i will run this regardless of condition.  
at the end of the day - i'm glad i did it.  (lazy people like me need a kickstart)  memphis and st. jude put on a phenomenal race for some amazing children.  completely worth it!!!
the recital

christmas pageants
  • edward's first

  •  and sis sis's 
the stage isn't exactly her thing (completely fine - it wasn't her parent's either), but she performed & we're proud.  her expression says one thing, but she assures us she had fun?  i'll take it.

the angel atop bebe and bobo's tree

the last minute card

the "clay" house
filling the days on our days off

the forced photos
"Merry Merry"

 and zoo lights
we made it!  after christmas and on it's final night - but we made it
