Good morning from this chunky monkey 🙈
no sunday or monday scaries over here when dad has the next seven days off work 🙌🏻 so excited for some extra family time even if it involves us spending every waking moment getting the new house ready to move into!
Happiness isn’t something you can find in a store, on a trip, or in a love interest. The only place you can find happiness is inside yourself.
Similarly happiness is not something you can lose because of a bad day, a bad person, or experience... but you can lose it inside yourself. .
It’s up to you and you alone if you are going to find it, and show it off!
I haven’t been great about taking pictures so far on this trip but these sum it up well; relaxing times with each other as we get an opportunity to reconnect as a family. We’ve also cherished the connections and new relationships we’ve built as we’ve been able to see first hand what God is doing in and through churches in Kansas City and OKC. Such sweet times!
Spent all of Friday indoors cause of the smoke from the fires.
We watched movies and baked cookies. These @annieshomegrown
sugar cookies were a 🙌🏽 hit.
Shawn really enjoyed cutting them out and eating them he left the baking and decorating up to me 😂😍
Mondays are a lot easier with a cuddle buddy 💛 #littleotja

Set your alarm🚨 so you could wake up early 🌞to work out 🏋🏼♀️ before kids wake up. Get started on your workout to only be on your 2nd circuit and you hear little footsteps. 👣 your kids woke up earlier than normal and need you. ⏸ pause workout. Take care of kids and then next thing you know it’s 2 hrs later. Start workout over. While kids are playing all around you, dodging ⚽️ being thrown at you and listening to one reading you his book 📚 and the other coloring you pictures. ❤️❤️
As much as I felt like I was at a 🎪🤹🏼♀️ , I’m so grateful I was able to get it done and still have fun with my kids. Even if I got hit in the head a few times with said ⚽️⚽️. 😂😂
Can you relate?! 😂
This little one turned seven months this weekend. Eloise is full of love, She is almost crawling, sits up, she’s eating three meals a day, we are still working on sleeping through the night even though I truly enjoy that quiet feeding time I have with just her with no interruptions. Everything seems to be going so much faster with her...maybe because I know she is my last but I wish time would just slow down a bit. Happy seven months my love. @weeczar
Pure sunshine. ☀️ Thrown in with a mix of silly, cranky and let’s not forget the daily tantrums, but that face!
Thank you @gmartinez614
for my awesome birthday gift. Nice surprise 😘
I’m like a total professional now 😆
And yes. We have our Christmas tree up already😂
...family of four. Such a sweet family. I seriously love my job.
This is why I always say don't wait to order.... 100 bars are going out for a wholesale order... 😱😱😱
‘‘Tis is the season 🎅🏻🌲❄️
I love how the entry table turned out this year! My mom and I always coordinate our holiday decor.. I love it! 🤣🙈 happy Monday!
Perfect pair of little gender neutral bloomers 🌿
As well as condensing our collection for Spring, we’ve worked really hard to incorporate more gender neutral styles, with and without embroidery. We realise that when you choose to buy something from us it isn’t the cheapest option. We’ve put a tremendous amount of thought into designing pieces that with provide you with the most versatility and the most value for your hard earned money that you choose to spend on our products.
Thank you a thousand times over for loving and supporting our little shop, it’s a dream come true ❤️❤️
It’s definitely a Monday. I woke up this morning wishing we were back in St. George at @myplacestg
! You can order breakfast in bed! 😱😱I’m all about an easy breakfast and it doesn’t get easier than that. 😉Don’t forget to use code HEYERIN15 at checkout. Link in bio! #sponsored
These sweet friends of ours shared which church they go to, and David and I went this past Sunday. Wow. How amazing it feels to finally be settled in our home and find a church home too. We struggled to find one that felt right for us where we lived last, and we are beyond thankful that we believe we found it. This week is all about giving and being thankful for what you have in your life. The overwhelming blessings that we take for granted. Just because we face battles, valleys, and tough times does not mean we cannot be thankful for the GOOD. It’s in times of trial and sadness that we see the goodness of God. My family has faced some mountains this year, but through conquering those mountains is where we found that God does not make mistakes. He does not say oops. He will not forsake you. What are you thankful for this thanksgiving?
One year ago today 😪 My how things have changed... like those pants actually fit him perfectly now. #crying
Monday’s aren’t so bad when you get to spend them with your favourite people🖤
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all have a great week ✌🏻
Happy Monday! It’s starting to feel like Christmas over here! We put out decorations over the weekend and the boys are learning to look and not touch 🙈 I added some twinkle lights and orange garland to the kids play room too ❄️🍑

For good reason - why I have been MIA. My daughter was born on November 9th. 7 lbs. 11 oz. 20.5 inches long. She is the greatest gift & biggest blessing. I can’t imagine life without her now!
Still can’t believe I created a human lol
I’m quite fawned of you, my deer. 🦌
I’ve never seen anything like Nara Park where the deer roam free and bow for treats. A little Japanese boy gave Nash a deer cookie to feed one and Nash tried to eat it! 🤣
Trying to get a [good] picture of them both like...
Everything that glitters IS gold with this one✨| Hard to believe this time last year we were patiently awaiting her arrival. Now she’s here bouncing up and down to holiday tunes.Thinking a lot about my little family, our traditions, the constant flow of change, and how divine this universe truly is. I look at my happy baby, who doesn’t believe in sleep and I have hope. The teeniest tiniest bit of hope. I could almost cry... or I may just have something in my eye. Who knows. 😩 Side note: a few of you know Kali’s birth story and most of you don’t. Sharing it soon, it’s shocking + CRAZY BEAUTIFUL. Will you read it? #VisitICE2018
Each one of our positive affirmation cards is designed to spark meaningful conversations between you and your children 💓💫 You can also use them to encourage a positive attitude towards new challenges & ideas when your child tends to refuse. It’s always good to be open to new ideas ☺️ #monkinya #etsy #affirmationcards

Had to take an early lunch at work, so I decided brunch at my favorite local eatery would be perfect and it was! Who else prefers small shops/restaurants? | 3-cheese flatbread + raspberry preserves & iced coconut Yerba Mate #lanierlifestyle #flblogger #floridablogger
“Can you tell I’m teething?” 🤤
These two books have been my favorite parenting resources this year. Both take an empowering approach, affirming that everything (sleep, potty training, life in general) is going to be okay. #kaileenelisereads
We followed the “Oh Crap!” potty training method this summer when my son was 25 months and our baby was 5 weeks. It was as good of a time as any since we were relatively home bound with our newborn. We followed the book’s outline closely and in the end potty training was a lot less scary that expected!
“The Happy Sleeper” is my go-to sleep book. It provides helpful guidance every step of the way since babies are always changing. The authors encourage patience, curiosity, and above all else believing in your child. We’re still on the journey and I always find comfort in this book.
As a mother, I think one of my jobs is to set my babies up for success... and then get out of the way as they learn. This isn’t always my first instinct, which why I love having books like these when I‘m in need of a little help.
Old tractor, cowboys, & family! ❤️ Life doesn’t get much better!
with my lil loves + my big love + Christmas decor = one happy mama! Wishing everyone a blessed week! ♡⋒♡
Long morning walks with my girl >
G E N T I L L E S S E | As I talk to others about different personalities and what role they play relationally, I realize that in order to treat the people around me (that I love) with more kindness and compassion and just love really, I need to be less reactive based on my emotions and feelings. And lawwwd is that the hardest time for a ‘feeler’!!!! 📸 @jenessawait
From a stroller to a scooter in the blink of an eye.😩
