these days | september 2012


wanting a new iphone. i'm drooling over the 5, but would be super happy with the amazing camera on the 4s.

thinking about halloween costumes and christmas lists already.

wishing for cooler weather.

cooking some new recipes and releasing control over making my kids eat what we eat. i'm learning that bits + pieces of the same meal still counts.

cheering on quinn in his first baseball team.

completing some photo book projects finally. one page at a time.

noticing more of the everyday and recording it all with my iphone.

smiling because quinn has been drawing, painting and using his imagination a lot.

hearing many new words from tate.

loving the afternoon rainstorms.

sleeping a little more.

photographing quinn's class for the personal yearbook project that i am doing with them.

couponing to make every food dollar count.

watching some new tv shows: long island medium, katie, shark tank, the voice and the x factor.

listening to the ninjago song (thanks to the boys) and still can't get enough of call me maybe and this youtube video.

reading favorite bedtime stories to the boys. llama llama nighty-night for tate and if you take a mouse to school for quinn.
