Family Night ~ Play Doh!

There is something about having my little family together for a fun evening that is just so delightful. Granted, I spend pretty much every moment of every day with the girls doing fun things but when Matt is home and there is no rush to get the dishes done and the girls to bed, its extra special. Family night for us is pretty impromptu though. At this point, we don't really plan it. Our weekends are often full of places to go and people to see. But every once and a while we find ourselves home on a quiet Friday evening with nothing to do but enjoy each others company!

A game night or movie night is generally out of the question. We want everyone included and right now, Taitum is just too young for board games (although I do intend on eventually planning a game night with toddler friendly games...someday!) and is uninterested in most movies. As well, we like to do things that encourage conversation and interaction. So where does that leave us? This weekend landed us around the kitchen table with a big lump of play doh!

Piper asked to play with it and before I knew it we were all joining in! Matt and I with our evening coffees and the girls with their insatiable appetite for play based fun! I have to say play doh is pretty addicting! I got so involved I didn't take any pics of some of the more memorable creations - like Matt's giant dragonfly!

Matt and I ended up being the vegetable makers for Chef Piper who was in the process of making soup! She would tell us what veggies she needed and we'd make them so she could chop them up and throw them in the pot!

As is often the case, Taitum eventually lost interest but was content to stay close by. She worked on buckling her baby into her high chair, busied herself with trying to see what was in the garbage can and when she got the chance, attempting to get a sip out of my empty coffee mug!

Play doh was the perfect activity for a family night with little ones! The girls played happily away as Matt and I chatted about the happenings of our day, the girls listened intently and asked questions (in Piper's case). We, in turn, asked questions we had for them and overall, simply enjoyed our time together!

Rejoice with your family in the beautiful land of life!

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
