Picture Wall

We are seriously so bad about taking pictures. One would think that we would be the last people to have too few pictures, but we really have more pictures of other people than we do of ourselves! Recently, well, like 2 months ago (maybe more), I raided the "buy one, get one for a penny" sale at Aaron Brothers, and went a little crazy on the frames. I had Kevin put them up at that time, and I just finally got my act together and filled the frames with photos! Yay!! We have a family picture wall at last! It looks pretty cute too!

Crazy Dazy

Life around the Watson house has been insane lately. Reese is now 4 1/2, Zoë is 3 1/2 and Charly will be 5 months on the 17th! Time is a-flyin' and we are just so busy! I was offered my dream job over the summer, and started working at the end of August. It was much more difficult to leave the girls than I thought it would be, but Kevin was lucky enough to be able to take 6 weeks (paid) time off of work to stay home with the girls. He had a wonderful time with them. Last week, life changed again. Daddy had to go back to work and Charly and Zoë are back in daycare on the days that Kevin works. Oh, and p.s., whoever said that teachers have the best schedule, is nutty. The job really is never-ending. BUT, I do love my job! As hard as it is to get all of the girls ready every morning, bathed, brushed, bowed, etc., it really is worth it when I get to school. OH, I forgot to mention the tears...from mommy :) Regardless of the grief that I face every morning, I love that I can be a teacher who influences teenagers every day and then come home and still (try to) be a dedicated wife and mama! This is no easy task...I have only been to the gym 2 times in the last 7 weeks and if you know me, you know that that is not okay! Balance is something that I am currently trying to handle. This weekend was Kevin's first back at work for full days. As much as we miss him at home, I have LOVED having the girls to myself all weekend! I even managed to get some decorating done and the girls had so much fun painting all weekend! Here are some of our little projects we've been working on:
