Dog Sled

even though it's arctic out we've been trying to enjoy the winter weather as much as possible.  twenty minutes was about all we could handle and this moment was not only bitterly cold, but very bittersweet. it brought up memories of our dog arthur who was loving all the snow just last year.  he even pulled their sled a few times which solidified his coolness in their eyes.  last spring we had to put him down and it really affected cole.  he has dwelled on his death more than we would like and still gets choked up every few weeks talking about him.  dean has handled it better, but still starts many conversations with new people by saying "our dog died!" the awkwardness is funny, but it's sad at the same time.  recently it's obvious that ike has been feeling the loss more and more and the boys have been begging for a friend for him.  my husband and i have always found that pairs work well for us and spring may be the season...

Fa La La La La

even though life is crazy and hectic, sometimes you just have to stop and make time for an official family picture.  even if that means strapping your phone to a tripod and using a remote to get it...

Old Soul

this guy is very into his clothes and he freaked over this little vintage cardigan i brought home recently.  i shouldn't have been surprised, he's wise beyond his years, so the grandpa-like quality of it probably appealed to him.  he dresses better than me most days and he is one of the most confident and happiest kids i have ever met.  maybe there is even more truth to the saying look better, feel better than we think...

Room of the Day...

we are starting phase two of "project open concept" next week and I couldn't be more excited.  even though we are still recovering from the first couple walls we knocked down, the unfinished open-ness greatly out weighs the cramped space we had before.  it wasn't the smartest thing to do this so close to christmas, no our tree is still not up, but it will be so worth it when it's all done.  if you have the ability to knock down any walls - just do it!  removing a wall costs far less than you probably think because it's mostly just labor.  which brings me to this inspirational space, which has the long sight line we were craving and i'd gladly take the rug too...
