Monday Moment

What's a Monday Moment? It's a moment I capture of my kids. Every Monday I'm going to try my hardest to take a picture of my kids doing what they do.
My first Monday Moment is of Kaden. Ever since Kaden was little he has had very busy little hands. He has always enjoyed creating and building things. This year he has learned how to knit. He really enjoys finger knitting and making long ropes. Kaden does very useful things with these ropes. He has made a belt with them, hung forts from them and even tied up his brothers (I think that's his favorite.) It's always fun to see what his next creation will be.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star

One of Violet's favorite songs is Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. This is a picture of her making the diamond in the sky.

Good Old Comfort Food

I love getting those rotisserie chickens from Costco. They're cheap, it's already cooked and taste great. I found this recipe which calls for leftover rotisserie chicken. You can find the recipe here. I used 4 cups of Better Than Bouillon chicken flavor in place of canned broth. You can also buy this at Costco. I would also recommend using less salt. I used leftover rice instead of noodles, which I pulled out of the freezer. This dinner took me about 20 minutes and was soooo good!!!

All the kids gave it double thumbs up. And Kaden said, "I wish I had a bigger stomach." Full bellies, happy kids!!!

This Little Piggy

I came out into the living room to find the boys playing computer games under their new fort Kaden made. I thought it was cute how all their little feet were hanging out. In the second picture notice how Kaden and Riley's feet are in the same position just opposite.

Violet is tu-tu cute!!!

OK, so I broke one of my own photography rules. Never shoot when it's nap time. I was going to take pictures of a newborn but we had to reschedule. All my stuff was out so why not take pictures of Violet. Yes, it was her nap time so she wouldn't let go over her bottle and blanket. She still is tu-tu cute to me.

These are Violet new favorite shoes. They are squeaky so I always know where she is.

Violet Turns 2

I took some pictures so I can remember this age and stage in her life. I wanted pictures that captures her beauty, personality and a few of her favorite things.
I love her beautiful blue eyes and smile. And no, I didn't do anything to her eyes, she just has these amazing blue eyes.

She is also feisty. Her three older brothers are scared of her.

She's also just plain silly.

We can't forget to include a picture of her pout.

And of course her very busy, get into everything, climb up on anything, cute chubby hands.

This look I see often. To me this is my little Violet Rose. Her light in her lovely eyes, her innocence and her ability to love unconditionally, is my two year old little girl. Below I've attached a couple of her favorite things. Here puppy that was given to her when she was born by her cousin, Katarina and her new black boots. I wish they made them in my size.

Baby Adelle

I was looking for some old photos and I found these ones I took of Baby Adelle a little over a year ago. Don't worry Ariann I'll actually get these on a cd for you this time.
