Week 11 (March 12-18): Whip Cream

Posted on

A random Tuesday snow day requires only one thing: hot cocoa with lots and lots of whip cream! 

Have a little cocoa with your whip cream

Week 10 (March 5-11):  New York in Winter

Posted on

Caroline wanted a trip back to her old stomping grounds for Christmas.   We finally made it happen this week and I’ll be the first say that a trip to the Hamptons in March just isn’t as fun as a summer adventure.  But it was beautiful with some fresh snow.  This picture will not do justice but I had to snap a photo of the trees covered in snow on Squires Ave (our old street).

Week 9 (February 26-March 4): Puzzle 

Posted on

Liam has always been our puzzle lover.  It’s fun seeing him move from 12 pieces to 24 to 48.  His current obsession is 200 pieces of football and baseball puzzles.  He’s gotten so fast with these that I’m thinking it might be time to add a few more to the rotation. 

Puzzle Champ!

Week 8 (February 19-25): A “Magical” Week

Posted on

Caption this!

We were lucky enough to take the kids to Florida during their winter break.  We had fun visiting with Pop Pop and Mom mom and cousins.  The highlight of the trip was going to Disney! We all had such a good time and had a fair amount of pictures taken.  The photos from the fast moving attractions are the best and there were a few of all of us smiling and looking in the same direction but this one is my favorite!!!

Week 7 (February 12-18): Just Call Me Devin

Football playing snowman

Liam has been working on this paper mache snowman in art class for a while.  He loved the project and was excited to finally bring it home and show it off to us.  The conversation went something like this:

Me: I love it but it looks like you brought home the wrong snowman.

Liam: Nope it’s mine.

Me:  But it says “Devin McCourty”

Jeff (from the other room): Devin McCourty is a football player.

Me: Ah, of course he is!

And on further inspection I can see the snowman is holding a little pipe cleaner football.   I am now convinced that football has over taken Liam’s brain and infiltrated every aspect of his life!


Week 6 (February 5-11): Guest Photographer 

Posted on

A rare Saturday night dinner out with the fam and Liam got ahold of my phone.  I challenged him to take a “nice” photo of me and my old man.   50 shots later, they all ended up deleted because he’s 7 and silly.  This one though, he made me promise to keep.  I’ve got to admit it’s grown on me.

This is us. Photo by Liam, age 7
