Hi guys! Today I thought I would do something different and blog my entire day by posting a picture every hour! These pictures aren’t going to be “blog worthy” (whatever that means) but I wanted to share what it’s really like being a stay at home mom of four. I’m not lying when I say that this is the hardest job I’ve ever had – mentally and physically. I have fun being home with my babes but there are LOTS of days when I’m drained, exhausted, irritated, overstimulated… you get it right? You never know which direction the day will turn. I literally just go with the flow and make sure everyone survives the day.
Another year has come to pass. I just can’t believe it. It seems like the more kids you have, the faster the days go by. Anyone else feel like that? 2015 and 2016 were epic years for me, so honestly 2017 didn’t stand a chance but we did have some awesome moments. I’m going to recap the highlights of our past year.
Missed Chapter 6? Read it here!
I only have one more chapter after this post and my throwback series will be complete!!
A couple days after our wedding, we headed to Orlando, Florida for our honeymoon! We were so excited – Cody especially since he didn’t even know we were going until our wedding day (the only secret I’ve ever kept from him and it was so hard!!). We both agree that our honeymoon are some of our favorite memories together. When we were there, we didn’t waste any time when it came to trying for a baby. 🙂
You guys. I HATE picture day. Especially now that I have to worry about FOUR kids. When McKenzie and Kasey were toddlers most of their photo sessions would be crying pictures. They are funny to look back on now but in that moment I was a mess and hated getting them taken.
Everything involved with pictures is stressful. Picking out coordinating outfits, worrying about how the weather will hold up, getting everyone ready the day of, chasing your toddlers around while trying to get at least ONE decent family picture of everyone… good lord. This year, I was pleasantly surprised that they turned out so well!
One company you see all over my social media is Sprispals! It’s not a secret that they are our go-to for everything girly and pretty. The kids have been models for them for the last couple years and its been so fun! The owner Courtney, is so sweet and can pretty much make any vision come to life!
McKenzie and Kasey were models in their fall photoshoot (Harper and Mason sat out on this one) and I’m obsessed with these photos!! The necklaces… the bows… goodness I love it all.
