Out and About and Snuggling at Home

Forever In Blue Jeans

I am joining Carin at Forever in Blue Jeans for her weekly challenge to get mom in the picture.  If you've not been in the picture this week, it's not too late!  Here's my four step plan to recovery.  1-Grab the camera 2- grab a kid 3- take a shot 4-post it!  You can't ask for easier than that.  I can't wait to see you in the picture.

This week there were lots of fun things going on out and about but as always my favorite were those quiet moments here at home with the family.  Like this night when Ellie, Sam and I climbed into Samuel's toddler bed to read a bedtime story.  Do you suppose we exceed that 45 pound weight limit?  Perhaps that has something to do with the reason why my good husband must keep replacing the support boards?
And this was the evening that Samuel was trying out his photography skills.  Which I think have improved considerably since his first go at it.  He thought it would be special for Pa and I to cuddle his woof-woof. 
Saturday morning, Ellie got up while I was still reading my Bible.  When she came to the living room and saw me she ran to get her Jesus Story Book Bible and climbed up with me. 
Saturday we spent the day at my brother's celebrating his 40th birthday with a cookout.  Someone snapped this picture of the three of us.
And one of me and my sweetie at the strawberry fields. 
Until next week,


  1. Your family is beautiful, but I must say that the heartwarming-est one of the bunch was your heads sticking out from behind the book as you read together. How undeniably sweet is that?!?!

    Terrific memories captured!

  2. Great pictures as always! :)
    And you look cute in your glasses. :)

  3. All lovely photos. The one of you reading to the kids in bed is so sweet.

  4. Kat,

    You look great in all of the photos. You have been looking so thin and absolutely beautiful as always.

    The strawberries look yummy, and I love the one of you and Ellie reading your Bibles.

    Yesterday I made your artisan bread. Remember I told you I would get around to it? Well I meant it and I was not at all disappointed with the end result. That bread is amazing! My entire family loved it. I have 3 more in the refrigerator just waiting to be baked. Thank you so much for taking the time to share great recipes and great wisdom on healthier cooking.

    Have a great day today!

  11. Hi Kat
    Thanks for your comment. I am so excited for you re your Disney trip this fall. You MUST go to one of the waterparks. Typhoon Lagoon is my favorite although both have excellent areas for little kids too.
