Apparently I didn't get but a few pictures New Years Eve. Which was a great time for our kiddos. Lots of singing and performances, a ping pong tournament (Cam won), tons of delicious food, enjoying the neighbors' fireworks, and counted down with all the littles still wide awake and toasting their sparkling cider while banging on pots and pans in the street.
Spent the days following Christmas in Atlanta to support the LHS Eagles. Took the two younger ones (since we didn't see much of Jack) to the zoo. Cam really enjoyed it. Bella might have complained most of the time. But we still had a good day.
No caption needed for this one.
Gosh I love memories like this. And I know these kids will always remember these times spent with close friends.
Got our tree. A little later than usual this year. Jack was missing because he was at practice, of course, and we just couldn't put it off any longer.
She wanted to be the Wicked Witch of the West. She came up with the idea all on her own. She wanted a witch's hat, a broomstick, and for me to paint her face green. I didn't even know she knew who that was. Afterwards, we watched the Wizard of Oz. She kept saying "I'll get you my pretty".
Her friends decided to go with the theme, and we had Dorothy and the Scarecrow. They loved the picture taking and took their roles seriously. It was a warm but windy night, in the 80s, and her hat wouldn't stay on.
The older boys had matching masks. Cameron has never really liked dressing up.
We also had a Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Elsa & Anna. And Black Panther and teen wolf.
Jack walked around the neighborhood, with a basketball of course, with Kaleb and his friend, Cameron. (It was dark and I didn't get to get any pictures of them. But they probably wouldn't have let me take one anyways.) I did get this picture of Jackson making plans.
Nobody in the world has ever loved birthdays as much as this girl. Turning 8 was no different. We counted down the days. She loved being surrounded by family and friends. And of course, she loves presents. This year, we got her softball gear - a batbag, bat and helmet. She wanted all things Justice and had the best birthday party making tye dye shirts with her best friends.
My name is Kaci. I am a working mom of 3. Wife to Josh. Mom to Jackson, Cameron & Isabella. My life is dinner, homework, baseball, basketball, grocery lists, laundry, middle school, wine, video games, and schedules. I started this blog because I love taking pictures, and I needed a place to document our life. I wanted a place to write it all down, to remember little details so easily forgotten in the mad rush that is the life of a family of 5. Through my photos and words, I endeavor to capture our story.
