our week in instagram

Do you love instagram as much as I do? I think it's so fun. I'm slightly addicted.

Do you follow us? If not, find us at hugsandpunches.

dance class

Imani has just started dance class. It might be the cutest thing ever. She's super into it.


Our weather here in Denver has been so weird. One day it'll be 80...the next, we'll be wearing sweaters and building a fire. We did a lot of playing with trains this day.


Abreham had Districts for track this weekend. Love those Ethiopian genes!! He finished his mile {1st place} at 5:54, can you believe how fast he is?! It was so fun to cheer him on!

lemon bars

I love that our church has a coffee house in it. Ben got up to go to the bathroom & came back with a lemon bar treat for me. Love him.


I COULD NOT do all I do without such an amazing husband. He's the absolute best father, encourager, accountability partner, and love of my life.


Oh laundry, how I hate you and how you're never. ever. finished.

Family Room

Spent some time organizing the family room & kids study area. I get so tired of clutter. Love things all having a spot.


Imani: "Mommy! Take a picture of me!"

Shoe Munching

Elsabet is all over the place these days, rolling around, chewing her toes and alllllmost crawling. Goodness I love her!

Photo Shoot

Ezekiel was asked to be in some advertising for the physical therapy group Laith has been going to for his arm. He left beaming, saying he wanted to do more modeling. Hmmmmm maybe we'll get college paid for after all!

Sunset Magazine

It's a rare, rare occurance that I get to flip through magazines. That's why I love waiting rooms & doctors offices.

Who's with me and wants to move to this house???

Cub Scouts

Anton & Ezekiel have just started Cub Scouts. Did you know there's a Manners Badge?

Love that.

little dancers

I was making dinner tonight and had Pandora on. I look over and see this. Precious.

Wish it was a clearer picture but apparently when you're dancing to Nat King Cole, you can't stop for photos!!!
