#onedayhh // evening
6:20 pm- Eating dinner. Zeb made it home from hunting so we can all eat together. We say our prayers and everyone gets a chance at saying what their favorite part of their day was. This is one of my favorite times of the day. So many good and sweet conversations take place around this table 💜
.

7:15 pm- We are supposed to be calming down for the evening and getting ready for bed, but these three crazies are wrestling instead. Cole is trying to take down Zeb and Lainey is bringing in “super pills” (aka Nerds from her Halloween candy stash) for Cole to help him win. Karey watches the craziness from her high chair and I watch from the couch. .

7:55 pm- These were the book choices tonight. Cole is loving the Boxcar Children series and we just finished book 3 tonight. We also read the new book Cole picked out at the book fair. Lainey picked two stories out of her new Shimmer and Shine “chapter book” she got at the book fair today. After reading the two big kids head to their room, chat a little about their days again, and pray. Then it’s lights out for them. .

8:35 pm- Time for sweet Karey baby to go to bed. I’ve been soaking up her snuggles as much as I can and often find myself drifting off to sleep for a bit in the chair with her in the evenings. She’s such a cuddle bug and I love to cuddle 💜
.

9:15 pm- Kitchen is cleaned, clothes are laid out for tomorrow, backpacks and bags are ready, coffee maker is set... now it’s time for me to relax a bit with my feet up on the couch and finish this book. I’ve been making my way through the Inspector Gamache series and I am LOVING them!! Once I’m done I will wash my face and head to bed. It’s been a fun day. Thanks @laura.tremaine for hosting this. #OneDayHH helps me to remember that magic happens in the everyday and to focus on the small things. In the end it’s the small things I will remember and cherish the most 💜

#onedayhh // afternoon // I totally fell behind in posting today, but I continued to take pictures bc I knew things would eventually slow down.
1:30 pm: Grocery shopping at our favorite grocery store, “the apple one” One of Lainey’s favorite things to do right now is grocery shopping. She usually has her own cart, but today she wanted to ride on the end of mine. Karey loves to dance along to the music playing in the store 😍

2:30 pm: Some afternoons Lainey takes a nap, but most of the time she doesn’t. This afternoon she stayed up with me and she watched StoryBots while I read. Karey usually sleeps from 1:00-3:00, but she fought her nap today and was up with us too. She played on the floor, looked at books, and cruised along the fireplace.
3:10 pm: Getting ready to pick Cole up from school. I made myself a pick me up drink. It’s SO good and gets me through the afternoon slump! I’ve been adding a few drops of Lime Vitality to it because lime helps your body absorb vitamin C and I can use all the vitamin C I can get this time of year! 🙌🏼 4:00 pm: Snack and school binder review time. We got home a little later today because we went to the book fair at Cole’s school and bought some new books. Cole went through his sight word flash cards while all of us ate our snack.
5:00 pm: Cooking dinner. Tonight is chicken noodle soup and it’s always a crowd pleaser. Zeb usually cooks dinner (he’s a WAY better cook than I am), but he’s out bow hunting tonight so it’s my turn. Karey hung onto my ankles most of the time and managed to pull out our Tupperware containers and other random things out of the pantry. Good thing she’s cute! 😂 While dinner is finishing up I packed Cole’s lunch for tomorrow: pb&j sandwich, carrots, grapes, cheese stick, pretzels, popcorn and a juice box. One of my favorite things to do is leave a note for Cole in his lunch box 💜

#onedayhh // 12:30 pm: Lunch. Leftover brisket and cowboy beans from Lainey’s birthday party for me and a chicken salad sandwich, hummus and wheat thins for Zeb. Pb&j, grapes and carrots for Lainey and leftover spaghetti and grapes for Karey. I usually pack Cole’s lunch (pb&j, grapes, carrots, popcorn and juice box) but today is turkey dinner at school so he’s eating hot lunch today. Lainey sits and eats at the breakfast bar while Zeb and I stand around the counter and chat while eating our lunches. Karey hangs out in her high chair and likes to throw her sippy cup on the floor 🤷🏼‍♀️

#onedayhh // 11:30 am: We had MOPS this morning. It was a make and take meeting and we made cream cheese pumpkin pie truffles. They’re delicious! 😋 We also wrote one thing we’re thankful for about every mama in the group. My love language is words of affirmation so this was just the kind of activity my soul needed today! 💜

MOPS has been such a bright spot in my life and brings me so much joy. I absolutely love the women I get to chat with every other week and have enjoyed getting to know them better. ☺️

#onedayhh // 7:50 am: The girls and I drop Cole off at school most days of the week. Today Lainey is dressed and ready to go and so am I, but most mornings we aren’t and we’re in our sweatpants. Karey is still in her pjs. Cole is a morning person like his dad and the girls are NOT morning people like me. Today it was snowing and slightly slick. Even though it’s cold, the snow always makes everything look so pretty ❄️

#OneDayHH 6:45 am: Cole is my early riser and is such a morning person. He wakes up (while I’m usually still in bed and Zeb is downstairs working out and showering), grabs his “bead projects” and gets to work on creating a new design. Today he’s working on a rabbit for Papa 💙 I’m participating in #onedayhh today hosted by @laura.tremaine I’ll be documenting a day-in-the-life today and I would love to have you join along! 🤗

Happy 4th birthday to my smart, sweet, independent, and silly Lainey girl. You are SO full of life and bring so much joy to our lives. You can make anyone laugh and love to be silly. Twirly, spinning dresses are your thing and you love to dress up. 👗 Shopping (especially grocery shopping) is one of your favorite things to do. You have an imagination that is second to none and I absolutely love watching you play and your performances. 😍 You are one of the strongest girls I know and it is a privilege to be your mom. Hope you have the best day ever sweetie, we love you SO much!! 💜

I can’t believe we celebrated this sweet baby’s first birthday a week and a half ago already. Where does the time go?!? Sweet Karylin Rose had a blast celebrating with family and friends and LOVED eating her birthday cake! 🎂 She is taking a few unassisted steps and is getting really close to walking! She has 4 teeth and is working on two more. She loves to eat, especially cheese, crackers and broccoli 🥦 Karey loves rocking her babydoll and giving her kisses 😍 She loves playing with her big brother and sister and is always following them around 😊 Sweet babygirl, you bring so much joy to our lives and I can’t wait to see what your future holds 💜

We had a great time at the Scarecrow Patch yesterday! Cole’s favorite part was picking out a HUGE pumpkin 🎃 Lainey’s favorite part was playing in (throwing) the corn 🌽 Karey slept most of the time, but woke up when we rode on the hay rack to go pick out our pumpkins 🚜 All three kids took a long nap on the way home, so I’d say we had a successful day at the Scarecrow Patch! 🤗

What are your favorite, go-to crockpot meals? Healthy-ish and kid friendly are both pluses! Links to recipes would be an added bonus! 🙌🏼 It’s been awhile since I’ve used my crockpot and I’m ready to break it out again! 🤗
