these days






hello november! it's been a bit of a rainy week around here which means lots of coloring, hot cocoa, and playing inside. it's already starting to get dark before 5 pm (nooooooo...) and i definitely feel our small space more in the winter months than other times of the year. i have to try to mix it up a bit and have activities a couple nights of the week so we don't go too crazy all being inside once it's dark out. this week, we headed out for a little spontaneous family date one night and took the kids for pizza and games. it was a lot of fun. having a big family is certainly a lot of work, but those times when the kids are running around like best friends? it's pretty great. 

also, 30 signs you're not a parent. this was especially funny to me this week because i got to the target checkout counter only to realize that the kids had taken my wallet out of my purse at home and replaced it with a baby shoe and some pom poms and goldfish crackers. i was so embarrassed. i can't even tell you. 

looking forward to tackling a couple projects this weekend and maybe even a little movie date night at home once the kiddos are in bed.

and just for fun, here i was last november saying the exact same thing about it getting dark too early

and with baby akemi three years ago

happy weekend!
