Stairs and Balls

The game room upstairs is the Land of All Things Lego, the big boys’ domain. Until recently. We’ve been doing some household clean out, and that included the upstairs game room.

Crayola Artist

Published by under Samuel Lewis,YAY things

The crayons were a huge hit today! After Sam finished breakfast this morning, I unveiled his new treat. I taped a piece of paper to his high chair tray (so it wouldn’t move around so much – thank you for the tip, random parenting article that I can’t recall anything else about right now) and […]

Extreme Closeup

Published by under Caleb Lee

Caleb likes to take pictures. Often he does self portraits. These self portraits are extreme closeups, like the one below. It’s a good thing he’s so cute, right? When I saw this picture, it immediately reminded me of an extreme closeup that Daddy actually took a few years ago, when we took the boys to […]
