random update

We've been watching LA Ink on Netflix lately.  In the show, rocker chick, Kat Von D opens a tattoo shop and you see the stories behind the tattoos and also the lives of the tattoo artists.  So, the girls of course wanted some tats.  Camille wanted a heart with horns, and Sylvia wanted herself as a ballerina, a flower, and a li'l fairy.  I think this says something about their personalities :)

 We love to go to Olbrich Botanical Gardens in all seasons.  We made a quick stop there to eat our lunch last time we were in the city.

The girls got a chance to see some good friends, and then we got to have dinner with more good friends.  Yay!

And we had a weekend visit from the grandparents (I took photos on Grandma's camera, so don't have them to share).  My in-laws joined us for the first fire in our new stove which they kindly gave us as a house-warming present :)

cozy sister snuggles (or 'cubby' as Ayla says)
Yup.  I'd say autumn is coming along quite nicely.  Thank you.


  1. Such lovely photos from the botanical gardens! How wonderful to have a new woodstove and a housewarming gift at that :) My children love to curl up in their blankets near the fire to :)

  2. Looks wonderful! You guys did a great job. Love from the Rayes!


I love hearing what you have to say. Leave a comment?
