comfy kitties

Turns out little grey kitties make for nice sleeping companions.

snow day

Snowy fun across the state, from Grandville to Ann Arbor! (I mean, she didn't sled the whole way or anything...)

(She recovered quickly at least)

Side note: It's nice to look at all these pics and be like WOOHOO THAT'S OVERRRR

coming soon to a yard near you (well, me)

pretty present from my man

I am trying to soak up all the little kid adorableness that I can while it lasts! I mean, there might supposedly come a day when Violet doesn't beg me to stay in her room to lie down and snuggle "just one more minute" before she goes to sleep. Or maybe they'll stay little forever?? Just look at these little treasures!

crafty time

Sometimes I make things for fun. I know it's like totally nineties of me, but I have this thing for dream catchers.

girly girls

Because sometimes you just have to give in to the girly-ness... like 10000%

all righty

Sometimes having a four year old is like turning on a tv and sitting back and being entertained.

daddy day

We enjoyed celebrating Mike on his bday! As usual, we make birthdays a multi-day affair, including a party with friends, getting together with family, and also some "just us" family time.

It's no fun to have to go to work on your birthday, so V & I surprised Mike when he came home with homemade jerk chicken and chocolate (and sprinkle) covered pretzels! As it turns out, the lid to the sprinkles is a bit faulty, which I realized the moment I was taking this photo.

Eh, we just scooped it up and used it for the rest.

They were a hit!

We got him a couple Star Wars lego sets. Part of the gift was Mike being able to teach Violet how to assemble them and then play with them together!

Fun for everyone!

just like us
