Friday Favorites

Collin, Bradley, and Mommy

This picture just cracks me up. “Everybody make a funny face!” and this is what Collin gives us. He is such a character…I just can’t explain. To know him is to love him and laugh at,  I mean WITH him. He is just something else and sweet as can be.

So I have decided that Friday will be my “Friday Favorites.” I will post pictures that I really like and didn’t get a chance to put up. I might post old pictures and reminisce. Or it coud just be random things that I really like. We will see how it goes, but it will be my favorites of something!


And I managed to get a really cute picture of my lil’ Elsie Cake smiling and happy as can be. She was cooing and trying to laugh. She is so precious. I love these moments, and they aren’t as often as they should be with this sweet girl. She has acid reflux and is so miserable with a belly ache alot of the time. We have tried everything for the poor girl (a whole story itself) and nothing seems to work. I can’t wait until she grows out of it and we have more smiley times.

Mommy and Mallie

And my lil’ Mallie, a.k.a. Mallie B. or Mallie Boo or Malibu, is just a happy little round baby. She is pretty content just hanging out and enjoying the show.


My Bradley is getting so big and independent. He took this picture all by himself! And he is such a great helper and loving brother,most of the time 😉  I don’t know what I would do without him.

Mommy and Collin

And can’t forget about my lil’ Collie…aka…Collie Wolly Doodle… technically “the middle child.” Bradley on one side and twin girls on the other. It is a good thing he is so easy-going. He is also quite clumsy and things just seem to happen to the poor kid, it is quite humorous some of the situations he gets into. I’m sure I will have many to share soon enough. He is also my helper and shadow. I can’t seem to do anything without him…and I don’t mind too much because soon enough he will be getting bigger and wont want to admit being a momma’s boy.

And this momma has had one long day and is exhausted.  I will introduce Papa Bear another day. 

Thanks for reading and I will leave you with my other favorite pics we took yesterday. Bradley took some of them and  I think he did a pretty good job.


p.s. Please ignore the background clutter in the pics. I like to keep it “real.” My house isn’t really messy, just a little unorganized now and then. It is “lived in” and “comfortable” by a very large family. I figure I can spend my days cooking and cleaning all day… or I can do some of both…and PLAY and make awesome memories. They are only little once.
