just because

I’m posting this family picture –

Just because when I found it today, it made me belly laugh and brought me to tears.  Oh the memories.

Just because it spells d-y-s-f-u-n-c-t-i-o-n.  Can you see the chaos?  

Just because the only one who looks semi-sane and perfectly poised is Nick.  Why is that?  Is he really part of this crazy family?  There has to be something that solidifies his bond to us.  Hmmmm.

Just because Ethen with the butter knife is priceless.  That look on his face.  Please don’t call CPS on me. 

Just because Ella is showing her “I will do what ever I want” side.  Immediately following this shot she decided it would be more enjoyable to dine with another family (one we did not know).

Just because if I remember correctly my jubilation in this photo stems from sipping downing at least one two glasses of wine prior to being seated.  

Just because it reminds me of how lucky I am to be me. 

Do you feel ‘normal’ now?



Remember when I said there had to be something?

  1. Love the pictures! You guys look great! I still have memories of you Lisa round and overdue with Ella 🙂 Beautiful family!

  2. you have NO idea how much i needed to see your pictures and have the reminder that the definition of normal changed the moment i become a mom! i spend way too much time worried about how we make our grand entrance, become the evening’s entertainment and probably leave a place with a round of applause because we’ve left! that’s our NEW normal! but i wouldn’t trade it for the world!
