Last week while Felix and Nicole were in town we were able to grab a photo of all 5 cousins together. We had to wake three of our four boys up from naps to attend the afternoon family gathering, where the photos were taken, and needless to say Luc was a little less than thrilled to be smiling for the camera. We grabbed one decent photo of the 5 boys ages 6 and under (which is no small feat) and then another that I love! Not because it is picture perfect but because it cracks me up SO much! I love my boys and their sweet cousin.

Since saying goodbye to our sweet Bella last fall Jamie has been missing having kitties around. Together we decided that we should probably wait until next fall before adding to the family again since Remy would be a little bit older and Jamie would be home more because of the holidays. However, I saw cute kitties while at the pet store getting food for Piper and then Jamie stopped by the shelter after work one day to “just look” and one thing led to another and after a few more trips to the shelter, two sweet kitties have been added to our crazy. They are super sweet and adjusting well to our large and occasionally overly-loving family. Without further ado we are pleased to introduce…

  • Barry- as in: Barry Allen aka The Flash
  • Ollie- as in: Oliver (Ollie) Queen aka Green Arrow

I am surrounded by boys (we are 7 to 2 at the this point) so Superhero names only seem fitting. I am sure you will see their sweet charming faces around here from time to time because they are sweet and cute and they are ours…

I LOVE dressing the boys in matching clothing and even more so I love matching PJ’s. It’s getting more difficult to find matching stuff the more Jay grows but I will keep doing it until I literally can’t anymore, because really why not?

Sweet, freshly bathed kiddos…

And this because it makes me laugh!
