A Lot of Photos and a Few Words

Tuesday evening we celebrated my Mom's Birthday over at my sister's house. My sister makes the most amazing ice cream cakes from scratch. I keep on telling her that she needs to go into business!
This morning we went for a great walk outside. After we came back in, the kids played dress up and of course, I couldn't help but take a few pictures.
I seriously love this one. Even though she has a little bruise next to her mouth, she is perfect. Don't let these pictures fool you though, I feel like my hands are FULL these days. The phase of tantrums is definitely here and she is LOUD. Honestly, I feel sorry for my neighbors and I want to keep my windows shut most of the time. My precious girl is sweet, strong willed, loving and she lives life loudly. She's busy, determined and fearless. My mom and I are super close so, I hope that Paisley and I will always have a close relationship and that even when she's grown, we'll be great friends. 

Judah loves to dress up also and we need to get more dress up clothes for him. I'd really like to have an entire drawer dedicated to dress up clothes. He likes to be a Doctor, a train conductor, a builder and he loves to pretend that he's going to work. I really need to work on that dress up drawer......
I feel like there's been a bit of a grumpy feeling over our house this week so, I'm planning on taking the kids for a surprise ice cream cone this afternoon. You know that saying, "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy?" Well unfortunately, I think it's true. I've been in a bit of a funk this week and I can see that how I'm going affects them. Blah....and the mommy guilt sets in. 

But, enough about that. I'm getting caught up on posting photos so, here are our recent photos from Project 365{+1}.
Tomorrow morning, Katie from The Terpblog will be here posting her "6 Simple Ways to Stay Sane this Summer". Be sure to check back because her tips are totally doable! She reminded me of a few things that I can do to make our summer super fun, without feeling like I'm going to loose my mind! 


  1. Thank you Angela for sharing the wonderful stories and precious pictures of your special moments. Beautiful!!!! Grace to you, Rebekah

  2. I appreciate how you chose your words describing P's volume, I love how you said she "lives life loud" that is such a positive way to say it. I struggle because my Gracie is loud (I've had others mention how loud she is) and we are constantly talking about how to use a quieter voice.

    The ice cream cake looks SOOOOO yummy!

    Right after halloween is the perfect time to stock the dress-up drawer. My kids have tons and most of them are costumes I got on 70 or 80% off at Target. Your dress-up pictures are super cute!!


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
