Happy 9th Birthday Leighton Reid!

9 years ago today after 41 hours of LONG labor Leighton made his entrance into this world and made me a mommy. It would take over an hour until the nurse would let me out of bed and down the hall to really see him for the first time instead of the quick glance I…

Korea Camp 2018

So I keep delaying writing this post because I want to include the photos that I took on my actual camera and not just the ones I took on my phone. Well….at this rate I might get the post written sometime in 2020, and so I decided to just use the few photos on my…

Collegiate Peaks Trail Run 2018

Sometimes in life I have really great ideas. Other times….well not so much. After finishing Imogene Pass Run last fall I decided I wanted a spring race and I wanted it to be pretty and not too long. Not too specific but those were my criteria. So in my google searching I stumbled upon the…

Happy 5th Birthday Edric!

Yesterday Edric turned 5. Poor guy had been sick most of the weekend but was finally on the mend. When he was asked what he wanted to do for his birthday he told us that he wanted to go to lunch with just mommy and daddy and to eat birthday cake. He also added in…

Toddlers Do The Zoo….

It was a mommy and toddler date today and we went to the zoo. The morning started out a little chilly (high 30s) but by the time we left it was about 60ish, so really we couldn’t ask for a nicer day. We use to visit the zoo all the time with Leighton because we…

Happy 6 Years Caedmon!

On Friday we celebrated Caedmon turning 6. Crazy to think that it has already been 6 years since his joyful and imaginative little self made it into our world and our hearts. Everyone needs a little Caedmon in their lives. He adds the sparkle and shine to every day life. His imagination is amazing, often…

Coppélia-9 Months Home!

Sunday marked Coppélia’s 9 months home. I spent the afternoon in the ER with Caedmon (in a story to come sometime) so I’m a few days late posting this. She has been making some huge strides with her language. She is slowly beginning to put a couple of words together and while anyone outside of…

Potty Training…Times 2……

Because everything is seriously more fun if it is doubled right? Or that’s at least what I keep telling myself. This wasn’t the first time that I’ve attempted to potty train the two littles. I tried in the summer and neither were anywhere close to being ready. I tried in the fall and Coppélia was…

An Afternoon In The Snow…

On our way home from church yesterday Leighton asked “When can we go up to the mountains and walk around a lake or something again?”. Clint and I looked at each other and knowing that we had nothing planned for the afternoon decided that we’d go then. We got home and quickly ate lunch and…

Dedication…

This past Saturday we got to celebrate child dedication at our church for Edric, Paxton and Coppelia. We did baby dedications for Leighton and Caedmon when they were born and had planned on doing Edric’s dedication after he came home but somewhere in the midst of everything it got put on the back burner and…
