Last Tuesday Every Month



10 Things to Smile About: September

5. A successful trip to Knotts (the aftermath)- I just had to share the following picture as it drives Janette crazy- she worries for my kids necks :)

7. Cooler weather and fall (well as fallish as SoCal gets)

8.  Ryder did great the first night in his big boy bed! (Though it makes me kind of sad that my baby is growing up)

  1. I love how Alex always has a pose, I feel like I know her personality just by looking at photos of her! And E's neck does that even with the headrest cushion in her car seat!

    1. Well glad to know that the cushion might not really help much. Alex definitely has a very big personality.

  2. I have never understood how kids can sleep that way and not totally screw up their necks! My kids do the same thing.

    I love the new iOS...can't get the new iPhone anytime soon, but at least I kinda feel like I have a new phone ;)

    1. Yes my neck always hurts just looking at them like that. I now do have the new iPhone and while I love it- the new iOS made it feel more like a new phone than the actual phone.

  3. I am so jealous of the magical sleeping spell that place seems to cast. It is amazing!
    Hope you are feeling better soon.

  8. What a fun linky! I may have to come up with something! I love the pictures of your kids all asleep in the car! It always amazes me how uncomfortable they look, but how totally out of it they are!

  11. This link up and your list this month is extremely inspiring. There can be so much negativity around us or we ourselves can be tempted to look at the bad, but this shows there is so much to smile about and be thankful for! Your family is adorable! I'm stopping by from SITS Sharefest! xoxo
