Happy Day to You!

Canaan, all big-boy-ed out in his car seat on our way to church.
Alif started a soccer season with our friends from church last week. OMGosh how cute is he in his soccer gear?? And do you see how he is sucking air big-time? As our friend Mike noted, skinny apparently does not mean fit. I hope this means Alif will start walking with me!!

We inherited this headboard from my Grandma and Grandpa, and I love it so very, very much. It's just so - them.

Daddy does not like it when I do Canaan's hair this way.

About my outfit . . . I'm so, so sorry. And I'm even sorrier to tell you that I went to Target like this. Oh my gosh, someone help me with a major wardrobe makeover! But I lost 1.2 pounds last week, which brings the grand total to 16.8 pounds. Weee!

After we made brunch on Sunday, Alif and I sat at the table and talked while the kids played outside. I looked out there and said, "oh my gosh, the kids totally match! I have to take a picture!" I tried taking a little video too but within like 3 seconds someone said something rude and I gave up and came inside to chat with my husband.

One day Caris was sleeping a little too long at naptime so I went in to wake her up. She woke up cheerful and she was so pink and giggly and I was lying on my bed looking up at her sitting next to me, and I fell just a little more in love with her. She is my tiniest little best girlfriend and I adore her.


  1. Yay for losing weight and walking! Tomorrow is going to be great, and just the jump start I need after all the holiday madness. I've sort of hit a plateau in the weight department. So yeah, looking forward to it.
