Life as seen through the lens of my iPhone 6 Plus

Things have been wooshing past us at warp speed over here. This life is happening around me too fast. I can’t make it stop. So I take lots of pictures. Here are just a few pictures captured these past couple weeks.

This is a sweet shelf which sits in Thomas’s room. See that chalkboard in the corner, it reads – You might be small but never let that stop your little dreams no matter what. It was written by Lily just for Thomas.
While we are all complaining about the snow… someone loooves it!
This gator has met it’s match!
Bathtime means bedtime is right around the corner and some days… this is a very welcomed sight!
Hello Moto!

We still had a good foot plus of snow but just not the excitement of a blizzard. I love snow days. Somewhere along the way when you have kids, us parental types forget how fun it is to be a kid… and snowdays are a perfect reminder.

Photo Series ~ Making Friends at The Zoo

New York Mom
Family Travel Bronx Zoo
Don’t grow up!

This past weekend we went to the Bronx Zoo, like we do most weeks, and Thomas fed the animals like he always does… but this time… he actually got into it, and instead of throwing the food at the goats he held his hand out and let the goats slurp the food up from his tiny chubby hand.

Here’s a quick photo series to capture this FIRST! #22months

I’m surprised he didn’t have his little chubby hand chomped off!

Wordless Wednesday

We had such fun visiting our parents last week. Lily and Thomas couldn’t get enough of the trundle bed at Grandma’s house. Thomas loved jumping from the bed to the trundle… endless fun!

Happy Everything!

Happy Happy Everything you guys! I have been absolutely blissfully missing these past few days. It’s truly refreshing to just check out of all online shenanigans for a few days. We’ve been enjoying Christmas with our family in Florida. Eating mama’s biryani, pork curry and lot of tasty South Indian food. Matt and I have also stopped over at our local Oyster pub for our $6.95 per dozen oysters fix. These Appalachicola bay Oysters are somethign else!

Lily and Thomas have been showered with what seems to be never ending gifts and the love that surrounds them is truly such a blessing. We’re busy spending long lazy days with our families, eating, laughing and just being… offline.

2013 started out with  new life in our home. Thom was such a peanut and Lily was only 7! These days, our one year old Thom is walking all around the house and Lilypie is 8…going on “i know it all”. Our lives have just zipped by so very fast this past year but all along the way we made sure to stop, enjoy a nice glass of wine, collect some seashells, eat lots of oysters and have big belly laughs! I am blessed to have this sweet family of mine. And all the people who surround us everyday!

I do hope that you, dear reader, are able to take some time to go hug on your sweet ones who surround you everyday!

Week in pics as seen through my Iphone 5s

Ok this Elf on the Shelf business is intense! I’m not sure we are going to do this with the MOTO. What do you think? Are you Team Elf?20131215-232144.jpg

Thomas has been sick all week. He woke up crying at 1:30AM on Wednesday with a fever of 103. YIKES! buuut this apparently is not a biggie and the Dr. did not seem to be worried. He still has a nasty cold and we just need to get the humidifiers up and poppin! 20131215-232211.jpg

Finally asleep. This has also been a week of NO SLEEP! I wake up exhausted everyday!20131215-232238.jpg

We had our first giant snow storm of the winter. I looove snow storms! Thomas… sick and all… went out in the snow to experience his first! and he loved it. Also this Stanley flask is no joke… it’s the size of my sweet moto!! 20131215-232256.jpg

We had a big ole grown up meeting with the principal and both of Lily’s teachers. It’s a tough thing when your kid is getting bullied in school. I’m going to write about this. It’s (bullying) a really important subject that needs a whole lot more attention than it’s getting. 20131215-232317.jpg

uh huh- we TRIED to make a gingerbread house…but Lily ate most of it before we could assemble it. so…..

We love the Trader Joes gingerbread house. It’s a Hansel and Gretel Gingerbread House. With a witch, Hansel and Gretel and everything! 20131215-232341.jpg
