{Insta Friday}

remember these fun little posts?
ya know i haven't done once since here!
is that crazy or what?:)

sisters doing each others hair and sharing shirts...love. 
and can i just tell you how thankful i am for riley's hair doing abilities.
she promises to braid my hair this summer when it's 110 degrees!


can she just slow down already.
i'm seeing more 15 then 10.


this beauty of a chalkboard held a quote and pics from fall. 
 when i got it for my birthday from a friend.
waaaaaaay overdue for a makeover.
and i love it. 


aubrey had her first school egg hunt last week.
her little strawberry basket with pink ribbon threaded through is a basket i'll keep forever.
they were each able to find 4 eggs.
inside her eggs aubrey found 3 erasers (all identical) and a peter rabbit sticker.
and she was happy as a lark!:)


our library is all decked out for the summer reading program and i love it.
if i had 50 foot ceilings those beauties would be hanging from it!

funny what a new pair of yellow hello kitty gardening gloves will do for ya.
this little one helped dave in the garden for hours!
and she loved every minute of it!

"please don't move this high chair to the attic mom...i can still use it...or put my babies in it....or something...!!" garages are best cleaned out when the kiddos are at school!


daddy and aubrey.
in the grass.


a beauty.

and she's funny too!

janey stayed home on monday. just some congestion and a cough, nothing serious,  so she came shopping with us. she got to be the "hug me while i sit in this unsafe spot on the cart and don't let me go and talk and sing to me the whole time!" person. she was really good at it!


with friends.

we have a clock in aubrey's room and we tell this little early riser she can't come down till she sees a "7 at the beginning". most days she will wait...read in bed... play in her room. but this week i have seen this little bed head beauty 
around 6:30. pleeeeeease...

my case in point for staying in bed till 7!:)

when i woke janey up that morning she told me she got up around 3:45 to use the bathroom and saw me sleeping in bed. she said she wanted to climb in with me and spoon me till morning.
wish she did!

riley's new hat...think it just became my new soccer sidelines hat!


 anything chalkboard these days.

hope your friday was a fantastic one.
hope i don't wait 6 months for another one of these fun posts.
and hope your weekend is awesome!

we are gardening (hello kitty gloves included) 
looking for paint (janey's room and a pantry door)
playing two soccer games
and lots more i'm sure.

what are your plans?
hope they make you smile.

and just in case you need another reason to smile.
check out this song!
my friend sent it to me and we have been singing it and dancing to it ever since! 
hope you love it too!

have a happy day,


  1. Yay!
    So glad you are back at it, Cindy!
    You know...I'm glad you said it...Your girls are looking like little ladies all of a sudden!
    I was thinking it...didn't want to say it...thought it might break your sweet mommy heart. : )
    It happens...really fast.
    BUT!!! Even though they look older...they still stay young at heart.
    Promise. Remember...I'm a couple ahead of you!
    And...we had the exact same issue with Flynn and her high chair.
    Suffice it to say...it is residing in the basement playroom with her babies in it. : )
    Happy Weekend!!!!

  2. Great post, I missed these! Things I love:
    - Aubrey's (?) drawing of herself and her dad. So cute!
    - Riley's "silly face" selfie
    - Janey's long hair! It looks good!
    - The decorations in the library. I want those!
    - Aubrey eagerly helping Dave in the garden

    So basically, I loved the entire post. I'm glad you had a good Easter too, by the way! Have a good weekend :).

  3. I love your insta Fridays and I'm so glad they're back! Aubrey in the high chair... too funny for words. They always want to be 'big girls' but then it's the letting go that's so hard. Is it me or is Janey looking so much older... maybe I shouldn't have said that? I think it's her long hair but she's a beauty for sure (of course they all are!!!) Aubrey in the morning was Abigail this morning. 6:30 on a Saturday... I so wanted the quiet house for just a little bit longer. Usually they both sleep in a bit on Saturday... she came bounding in with a "let's plan my party"! You sure are capturing some great everyday moments. And I love seeing them! xo

  4. Miss you friend! Been thinking about you, but I just don't get on here very often anymore. I hope to change that. Love your sweet post and seeing all of your beautiful faces. LOVE that library, how fun! Hope you are doing well! xo
