Two dads, three sons...and a women's washroom.
We had been visiting with our friends when that time of the day rolled around.
Between our ginger friends and ourselves, there were five children, and they were getting hungry.
"It's a hot summer day, let's just take them all to Dairy Queen for supper!" someone suggested.
Aaron and I wrangled our three into the car, while Ethan and Brittany buckled their little ones into their own.
We made it to Dairy Queen, ordered, and everything went as it should. You know, losing a kid under the table, trying to discreetly clean up a shaker's worth of salt, using up a pack of wipes to ensure the kids and table each resembled what they were supposed to.
Our middle man turned two last week!
I honestly can't believe how fast the time goes.
We decided to go away and relax with family to celebrate, Tirian loves his
extended family so it just made sense.
Spring is blowing in! Have you felt it?
Aaron was making fun of me for spring cleaning like it was an Olympic event a couple of weeks ago, but you know what? Now I get to enjoy the gorgeous, melty weather guilt-free!
On Monday, it got up to 12 degrees here. The sun was out and the sound of snow dripping off the roof was music to our ears. The boys were delighted to play outside in hoodies, splashing around in puddles and cutting snow with their swords. They spent a good chunk of their outdoor time just sitting side-by-side on the front porch "having' a juicy snow snack." They were quite pleased with themselves for their resourcefulness in procuring a snack while playing outside. Does life get better than that?!
A little about us
This is not the exotic blog of a cultured world traveler.
This is the blog of a family whose life happens… at home.
We do everything here, and everyone is invited, because we want our home to be the place you can go to be a part of life in all its fullness.
And life in all its fullness means things are in constant motion.
Music happens here, school happens here, tattoos, wedding cakes, DIY roof demolitions, and even joyous births happen here!
At the Nicholson home, life is about creating, and it’s about bringing glory to the Creator.
We are excited to share our artistic journey with you, and hope it brings a smile to your face along the way.
Welcome to our home, to our studio…
