Flying Hearts Everywhere Giveaway!!

This has to be my favorite time of the New Year.
Reds and pinks and pretty little hearts everywhere.
Love stained intentions.
Mushy gushy sentimentality.
Sweet gifts and day totally dedicated to being lovely dovey.
Although everyday should be Valentine's Day, let's face it...sometimes it's just not so.
Being parents makes it kind of tricky to be romantic and set aside time for eachother. At the end of the day being covered in boogers, spit up and God knows what else, it's not really in the cards, ya know? And I can't even tell you the last time we had a date, unless you count our time spent in the hospital with just Ellis. No, that definitely doesn't count.

So here's to you Mamas--A major Valentine's Giveaway to all of you multi-tasking beauties, managing to raise your babes, and keep your mister's eyes full of flying hearts and arrows.

life lately.

Hux had a mega pirate party bash last weekend which we all incubated some fun sickies from--I've never seen Hux have a fever of 104.3--so so scary! And then Ellis was knocked down with a fever. We predict teeth soon, but it could just be the crud we caught.

So there's that. We've also have gotten tons and tons of snow. Literally. Snowed in kind of snow.
Ellis has also started eating like a mad woman. I've been experimenting with different purees--whipping up blended chicken noodle soup, veggies and chicken, and fresh fruits. This girl is an eating CHAMP.

Huxley has become a huge huge fan of playdoh, which he calls "So-dee-doh". 
I love him.
Except when he's stuck inside. The cabin fever makes him totally bonkers. 
Off the walls, running, screaming, hitting, stir crazy bonkers.

If we live to see spring I will be happy.

Until then,
Keep your eyes peeled for a mega epic awesome insane full of goodness giveaway that will be posted very shortly!



three years of life with the Hux.


Our magnificent little boy turned three today, and boy what an adventure it has been!
He is so caring, mischievous, creative, thoughtful, compassionate, and has as much energy as he does love. 

We can't imagine our lives with out you, Huxley Otis, and we are so thankful we get to call you our son--here's to many more beautiful birthdays, baby boy.
