front porch sittin'

>> Thursday, March 25, 2010

Things have been super mellow around here this week. it's been nice. we've been doing a whole lot of cleaning, playing in the sunshine, watching the "chickmunks" {yes, alvin, simon, & theodore}, and just enjoying each other! i really feel like we do live the "simple life"...no drama {except from the two year old, but that's a whole different story!} just enjoying every day, every moment with those that are the most important to us. life is good.

the front porch is by far my favorite part of our house...it's the best place to hang when it's a gorgeous day! we pull out the exersaucer for hollis and ava can play her little heart out with all of her "outside toys" {which she tries to sneak into the house one by one..,}. so many amazing memories on that porch. i remember after bo and my first real date, we spent hours on the porch just talking and staring at the stars...i love that our house has history, for his family and ours. it's amazing to think of all that has happened in this house.

this is the house that bo's great aunt and great grandparents lived in for many, many years.


this is the house that bo's dad moved into when his parents got divorced.


this is the house that bo lived in when i met him. he was living with his dad.


this is the house i lived in for several years with bo and his dad. {i am so thankful for this time. bo's dad is a lot like him, very quiet. these years gave me the opportunity to really get to know him in a way that i never would have without them. he really is a second father to me.}


this is the house that bo and i moved back into a few months before we got married.


this is the house we have brought both of our babies home to.



this is the house ava took her first steps.


we don't live in a fancy neighborhood, the paint may be chipping, we may have already outgrown it, and there is a lot this house doesn't have, but i am in love with it. this is more than a house to me. it is a home. it is where my heart is.

bo says that hollis is a "mama's boy"....well, i'm quite the "boy's mama", too...he has me wrapped.

the objects of ava's affection...yep, a tub full of bo's old cars, trucks, planes. she is so into anything with wheels right now!

she was totally engrossed in this helicopter propellor...i love watching her figure out how things work.

notice the boots...best 10 bucks i ever spent...she wants to wear them all.the.time!

the pout...we are powerless when it shows itself...
xo,

Such a sweet post. I have to admit that I felt a little teary eyed reading about your "home"...what a beautiful treasure you have.
