I am trying so hard to get over here and record some of life lately, I have a bunch of random photos from the last week that deserve a little spot on this big World Wide Web.
We took Chloe, Lucy and Beckett to the aquarium this weekend
After the aquarium we walked over to Quincy Market to grab some dinner
I don’t usually look like I’m about to do yard work when I’m out in the city (hooded sweatshirts are never a good idea) but the aquarium was celebrating the Patriots so I had to show my support 😉
Lucy is trying to convince us to get another puppy……. more on that later
Speaking of Lucy, she is the sweetest sister!! She loves taking care of Beckett so much!!
This kid is such a charmer!! He smiles and talks to everyone when we’re out in public. He’s such a happy little boy 💙
I had to take a picture of these three before they headed off to school the other morning. I know they’re going to complain about the picture. Ha! That’s the reason why they’re not on my Instagram more. All grown up!! *sigh
I love the way he holds my hand when he’s on my lap 😍
And a few from Instagram
One of my New Years Resolutions was to check into this spot more often. Just like my resolution to exercise daily, I failed. Ha! January has been super busy but I’ve been keeping up with my picture taking. Of course, most of my pictures are of B because he’s glued to my hip.
We had one big snow storm this month. Lucy and Beckett went outside to play ONCE
We’ve been finding other ways to keep busy (and warm)
Beckett got his first “job” on instagram
He also got his very first haircut. Oh man, I was so nervous because I love his long, crazy hair!! It gets super curly after a bath or when it’s humid out. It was getting kinda straight when we had that super cold, dry weather in December too. It’s just the cutest but I knew it was time for a cut when his mullet kept showing up in all of my pictures. Ha!
He wasn’t nervous at all. Chloe and Lucy got their hair cut that day too so we were in there for a while. He kept talking to all of the other women in there and saying “nice to meet you” to everyone who walked in. He also kept yelling to Melissa (our hair stylist) to “CLEAN THIS MESS UP”. Ha! He’s a little stinker.
He is seriously too cute!!
I love spending the afternoon with these two when they come home from school
Their stories are the BEST!! They are both such GOOD girls. We are both going to miss Megan so much when she goes to college in the fall. She decided where she’s going and we put the deposit down a few weeks ago. YIKES!! It’s getting real now!! More on that coming soon.
A few more pictures from the month:
I’m so obsessed with the winter sunsets!!!
It’s the only thing I like about winter. HA! Even though this space here is quiet I post daily on Instagram. Come say hi! Instagram.com/jillfriary
Another year has come and gone. Hello, 2018!
Our New Years Eve celebration pretty much looks the same every year. We order a ton of lobsters, dance in the kitchen to the same songs (Billy Idol Dancing With Myself, anyone?) sit by the fire, struggle to keep our eyes open until midnight to watch the ball drop and get that first New Year’s kiss. Even though the traditions are the same this year looked a little different because half of our kids were out with friends and boyfriends. But, traditions are important and I want Lucy and Beckett to look back at their childhood and have the same memories as the older girls. I convinced Emma, Megan and Chloe to let me in on their nights and send me some pictures
And at home
Beckett wanted to hold the lobster
Until he didn’t. HA!
2017 was a really great year for our family. I’m excited about what 2018 will bring! Happy New Year!!
