1. I took a pic of them on the first day of school, so they continued to ask for a pic every day throughout August. Ha!
2. Caroline had been begging and begging me to knit her a pink sweater. On it!
3. Pretty view on a trail run in Eagle Creek Park.
4. An evening at the town park with some pretty sunlight.
5. Caroline, clearly the next Picasso. (In case you can read it, it says “Likes to: Play with bunny.” Of course.
6. The other artist.
7. One evening we decided to have an impromptu picnic at the park. The kids thought this was the greatest thing ever.
8. After our dinner we went for a hike. Another evening of truly gorgeous light! (This was also at Eagle Creek Park.)
9. Sometimes after being in a hit and run car accident, the only answer is cookies for lunch. (All is well – no injuries, police tracked the driver down, and their insurance accepted liability. Just dumb.)
10. Future food photographer?
11. Rainy weekends are the worst but we try to make the best of them by building mega forts. It helps.
12. Andrew has decided he wants to learn how to play the trumpet after experimenting with Ben’s. I hope he really decides to do it. So fun!
13. Union 50 + Jim Gaffigan show. Date night makes me happy.
14. So much attitude.
15. Been baking lots of bread lately and loving it.
16. Thank goodness our cat is so tolerant because Caroline has a hard time containing all her loving feelings.
17. Andrew got in a little painting action in his bedroom in the new house and was so excited to get to help.
18. Our absolute favorite thing about the new digs? This patio with built in fire pit. Just add string lights, s’mores and friends and it’s going to be the greatest!
19. ::heart completely melted::
20. Ben celebrated a birthday over the weekend so I made the chilaquiles from Homesick Texan’s cookbook. They were completely fabulous and a perfect special occasion breakfast.

    Picture #19 looks like it could be a greeting card. So adorable that they are holding hands!

    Your kids are adorable! How did you learn to knit (book, videos, in person)? I want to teach myself, your projects always look great.

    I just started knitting. Try a website, Knit Purl Hunter. The video tutorials are easy

  • Laura Smith

    Loved Jim Gaffigan’s book. I’m sure that he was even funnier in person! What a fun date night!

    Annie, are you sad to be leaving your current house? You have done such a wonderful job of making it a beautiful home for your little family. The decorating snippets you have shared have been so lovely. However, from your pictures above it looks like Andrew is certainly excited about the new house!

    While we will miss the house itself because of all the great memories there, we are beyond excited about the move. The new house is in an area we have been wanting to live in for some time and the house is awesome, especially the backyard. I’m sure you’ll be seeing more snippets as I make the new place feel like home and then you’ll probably see why we love it so much :)
