Remember that photo shoot?

Hello, Boone!
Calder, your hair!  Lawson, your tongue!
Boone. What. Is. That. Smile? Hugh actually said, "He looks like the devil."

Calder. What. Is. That. Smile?

Really? Again, Calder?

Boone. Sigh.

It got so bad with the kids that the photographer suggested we hop in. Hugh, by chance, was coordinated with the kids!

On our way to the photo shoot I told Hugh that I would have canceled had it not been part of a one day fundraiser. The photos are beautiful quality and I think the photographer really didn't get a chance to snap our perfect shot with our two sick kids. I would definitely ask her to shoot our family again if Deena wasn't available.

I kept the print of Tripp. I have a nice white frame at home that I think would have looked even nicer in these shots. I definitely will file the location and idea for another day.

I am the featured blogger on the Blended Blog today. I enjoyed writing for them and hope I get asked again!

Happy Long Weekend!


  1. Your kids are so cute. Also, I am available!!

    When did Lawson get so freaking big?
    Confessions of a Frumpy Mommy

    1. She is a giant. I'm not sure I'm her mom!

  3. These photos are wonderful in my opinion. I love that they display the reality of attempting to get everyone to look/smile/sit still, etc. I really like that you have a picture of Tripp included in your family photos, it's lovely for your children to know about their little/big brother and to honor him. I had to giggle at the 5th picture because Lawson and Calder seem to have the exact same smile. I also noticed in these photos that Calder doesn't stray far from Lawson, is he the protective brother type?

  4. Great Photos!! Beautiful family Jordan...loved having you at The Blended Blog!!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
