Today, I ran away... from my kids

Posted by Honor on Friday, July 19, 2013, In : Life At Home 

   I literally raced out of the room through the bathroom into my bedroom slamming and sliding doors along the way only to fall into a heap of tears and sleep deprived anguish. Two seconds later I hear a crash bang boom and both kids are shoving each other out of the way to open the doors I closed and throw themselves against the door I was walled up against. Crying... whining... yelling... Mama MAMA MAMA!!!! and shoving their stubby little fingers under the door trying to get to me.

That man sure can take some pictures

Posted by Honor on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, In : Life At Home 

    Warning warning warning... the following post is ridden with baby pictures. So if chunky cheeks, squishy thighs, sausage toes and poochy bellies offend, please avert your eyes now!

    But if not... this one is for you. BTW All the pictures we taken by my husband! Holler for having someone else behind the camera lens for once.... not that I even made it into a single photo! Oh well! But that man was all about this young blonde babe ^^^^

   Interesting how I can see a difference in the expre...

Joining the Crew Team

Posted by Honor on Thursday, June 20, 2013, In : Life At Home 

   I knew it was coming. My baby boy had to get a buzz. With a former military man as a father (who has had a crew cut his entire life), I knew my fine, fair haired babe was destined for the clippers. But don't fret! I am hoping that now it will bounce back and grow in thick. (but if not, I saved a few of his four inch locks as a memento.) In all fairness this little tyke had a serious Wisconsin waterfall goin on. We tried with all our might to wrestle and wrangle him with some scissors and a...

Happy Father's Day To All You Pops Out There

Posted by Honor on Monday, June 17, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers (and father figures) out there!
The realest and manliest men I know are fathers. Tough enough to get over their own egos and play dress up, tea parties and paint nails for all the little princesses. Or patient enough to show their micro mini-mes how to loop de loop and knot some shoe laces.
Between my own father, my husband and father-in-law, I (and my babies) have been extremely blessed to have such amazing, loving, caring, patient and knowledge filled me...

Summa Summa

Posted by Honor on Monday, June 3, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Everyone else ready for summer? This fam damily is! Summer for us is all about birthday parties, the beach, the Del Mar Fair (which now apparently is called the San Diego Country fair, but to me it will always be the Del Mar Fair), the horse track/races and finding new and creative ways to beat the heat. Pool noodle, water balloon, hose and sprinkler obstacle course anyone?

Hope your weekend was fun and family filled. Just an fyi, the DIYn might slow down a bit because I am finding myself more...

Happy First Birthday Little Man!

Posted by Honor on Monday, April 8, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Little man's stats board. A canvas sprayed with chalkboard paint and then decorated with chalkboard markers. While it was supposed to be temporary, I'm thinkin this baby is going on permanent display.

Please excuse my absence for the past couple of days... but I have been a lil busy bee prepping for and then celebrating my son's first birthday! I'm like Whooot Whoot  on the outside and like boo who on the inside! I can/can't believe my chunk-a-monk is one year old. Some moments seemed to pass...

Weekend Wildflowers

Posted by Honor on Monday, March 4, 2013, In : Life At Home 

Weekends like what just happened, remind me why our family is so blessed to live in southern California... and why we will never ever never ever never never NEVER move away. Unless we have to. Begrudgingly, I would welcome new adventures and new locations but not with out a great big harumph!!!! first.
Our weather was splendid, the wildflowers are blooming (spring comes extra extra early here) and the big man had the weekend off. Triple threat. We BBQ'd with close friends. We planted our zinni...

Pillow Mosh Pit

Posted by Honor on Thursday, January 24, 2013, In : Life At Home 

 I am ecstatic that these two really enjoy each others company. They giggle and laugh and talk to each other. Well, Lou talks and the little man ' Mamamamama ma MA mama MAMAMAM's' at her. Lou is generous with her toys but he is much more interested in her. Sprint crawling after her if she saunters away. She is gentle with him (most of the time anyway). I am also very surprised that she tolerates little man getting a tad more attention right now. Nursing, crawling up the stairs, diapers... you...

Shared Bedroom Sneak Peek

Posted by Honor on Thursday, December 20, 2012, In : Decor Crafts 
He is a sneak peek into what I have been working on lately. As I mentioned before here I am in the middle of a room swap, turning my old office into the kids shared bedroom. While making up my mind on the furniture situation I decided to jazz up the long wall in the room. As of right now this wall will be free of any furniture, just toys stacked up in front, so it will be perfect for them to scribble away.

 First I created a chair rail by attaching some pre finished lightweight trim. I used qu...

An Animal Cracker Kind Of Day

Posted by Honor on Thursday, December 20, 2012, In : Life At Home 

Yep, some days you just want to shovel in some animal crackers hand over fist.

Welcome to my pity party.

I don't want to complain but I am a bit grumpy over the other night and I am trying to move on. Long story short, we went to a holiday party hosted by old Navy friends of the huz. So while he was out by the fire pit reminiscing I was left to my own devices to corral a wicked fast crawler and a super stubborn two year old. Usually I can laugh it off when Lou pulls some attitude with an audie...

The Davenport

Posted by Honor on Monday, November 5, 2012, In : Life At Home 

I Love love love this snapshot of them. I will have to look back on this when they are tearing each others hair out and say to them, 'SEE!!! You can get along!'

Welcome to our new haven. This chartreuse and cream floral wonder is our 'new' sofa. Eight feet long of vintage cushy pillow wonderful. I have recently vowed to myself that old is the new 'new'. No more new furniture when there are plenty of hardy handcrafted in the US of A battleships out there. I haven't named this beauty yet but I a...

Look at him... he is so proud! He is doing his homework. Practicing his crawling, stretching and pull ups. Baby homework. I on the other hand am being a good California voter and doing my research on all the current ballot measures. Are you being a good voter? A good American? When you really think about it... what a great privilege we have to be able to vote. I hold it near and dear to my heart. Ok, enough of that stuff and back to gazing in amazement at this handsome little guy and his gymn...

Stop It Little Man!

Posted by Honor on Thursday, October 25, 2012, In : Life At Home 

You are NOT supposed to be crawling, sitting up and trying to stand at 6 months! I want my mushy gushy cuddle wulldedkins back! (don't worry you always will be... even when you are 180lbs and over 6 feet)

Big sis was in the tub and he wanted in! NOW!

This is a big reminder that I MUST enjoy and cherish each and everyday because it goes SO much faster with the second one... sigh

A Boy and His Papa

Posted by Honor on Tuesday, October 16, 2012, In : Life At Home 

Why so serious?!
These two. I just can't get enough. Such a special bond between a father and his son. I really couldn't ask for a better father to my children. I was raised in a very lovey-dovey-mushy-gushy-never-ending-hugs-and-smooches type of home and strive to create that type of environment for these two little nuggets. And the hubs obliges. He heaps on the cuddles and smooches just as much as I do. I really think that is important. To have a loving father figure.... none of that 'we do...

Future Best Friends? Here is Hoping!

Posted by Honor on Monday, October 8, 2012, In : Life At Home 

   Put little man down for a nap and ran to the restroom. I thought Lou with the Attitude was munching on some cheerios in her room but I thought wrong. I left the RR and was drawn in to our bedroom by the joyful sound of giggling. Lou thought better of nap time and decided it was playtime. So she helped herself into his playpen and proceeded to tickle little man. Both were giggling and laughing up a storm. Boy do I hope their friendship stays strong and that they will grow up loving each oth...

5 Months

Posted by Honor Hansen on Thursday, September 20, 2012, In : Life At Home 
Waaaaaaaaahhhhh... he is growing up way so fast. These first five have gone by like zip-zoom-sayonara-adios-see-you-later. A total blur. Sonic speed. As I post these I am brushing away a big single tear. Only one tear because while it does make my heart ache that he is growing up. I am also excited to see what kind of little boy, then big boy then MAN he will become. I just hope he always always always always stays a mama's boy... In a good way though.

handsome devil. Yep already up and movin...

Today was a good day... Beach Day

Posted by Honor on Sunday, September 16, 2012, In : Life At Home 

In order to escape the blazing-hot-surface-of-the-sun-indian-summer we are experiencing here in southern California, we did what any sane family would do and headed to the beach. It was a great family day. Thought I would share a couple of snapshots. Hope you are having a great weekend. Lots of DIYs scheduled for this week!
