Sam has a new big boy bed, and he loves it. He looks so teeny tiny in a twin size bed. โ˜บ๏ธ the only thing I donโ€™t like is that heโ€™s not in it right now sleeping.... #6am #earlyriser #pleasesleepin #samuelscott

We tried to get all 14 of our babies ages six and under in a Christmas picture to commemorate this year. We tried really hard. Like, almost comically hard. Literal blood, sweat and tears were involved. Have kids, they said! It will be fun, they said! ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ cheers to another year with our lifegroup/family. We may be muddling through the trenches, but at least we are all together. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป #christmas2017 #lifegroup #somanykids

Donut holes after church make a big, sad, swollen lip feel better. Collateral damage from a big brother who plays a little too rough (and was also traumatized and repentant). ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ #lucymichele

Lucy is excited for our annual sibling holiday dinner + drinks + board game night tonight! She has the best aunt and uncles!!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰ #lucymichele

Look at those long (skinny) legs and that smolder. Getting so big and the most fun. What am I going to do with him? ๐Ÿ˜ #heartthrob #samuelscott #threeyearsold

Weโ€™ve been working hard to get Lucyโ€™s room all painted and updated. We are hustling because she has NOT been a fan of the mobile crib in our bedroom. And Iโ€™m a fan of sleeping.... so, the house and the kids have been mostly neglected today, but the bedroom is PAINTED. And itโ€™s quite the sweet little haven. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’• #lucymichele

Hitting up @loweshomeimprovement for some painting supplies to remodel this little princessโ€™ bedroom. ๐Ÿ’• ...and yes, still wearing the โ€œElsa dressโ€ she slept in. #lucymichele

Britnee Lesser (@britneemichele)

She requested to wear this Elsa dress (her words even though itโ€™s actually just a tulle skirt) over her jammies to sleep tonight. As soon as I obliged, she turned around with a glimmer of pride in her eyes and said, โ€œLook, daddy!!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ thankfully, itโ€™s lined with a comfy jersey knit, so she will be nice and cozy to sleep. โ˜บ๏ธ #girlsarefun #lucymichele #19monthsold

Sitting outside the pediatricianโ€™s office to finish these suckers. You canโ€™t tell it, but baby sister has a gnarly ear infection accompanied with a high fever. ๐Ÿ˜ญ Iโ€™ve decided that I could take a lesson from her on how to have a sunny disposition even when I feel crummy. She woke up with a fever of 102.6 at 2 oโ€™clock in the morning last night, and when I picked her up she patted my head and said, โ€œso pretty hair, mama.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’” off to start some antibiotics. Prayers for a speedy recovery and a healthy household!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป #samandlulu

Same shirt, different (more mischievous) kid. Thanks @raxtinclothingco for this versatile holiday tee!! We will see if Lulu is able to stay on the nice list this year.... ๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป her ace in the hole is that sheโ€™s super freakin cute.... so she gets all the presents anyway. Naughty or nice. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ #mostlysugar #alittlespice #lucymichele

After years of exclusively using a fake tree, we loaded up the brood and went to the Christmas tree farm to hand-select and cut down our own special little gem this morning. And, despite being total rookies and overhearing @okcscott a few trees behind me nervously asking Siri โ€œhow do you cut down a Christmas treeโ€ while wielding the handsaw theyโ€™d haphazardly handed him at the front gates, we collectively agreed on our favorite and managed to get it home safely and without any injuries. ๐Ÿ˜† Last Christmas, we followed our hearts and traded in all of our white lights and color-coordinating designer tree decor for everything colorful, messy and fun. So, as I type this, my babies are snoozing, and I am sitting under a blanket next to our fragrant live pine tree - a little crooked, misshapen, patchy, and undeniably charming - covered from top to bottom in pom poms and tinsel and homemade garlands and multicolor lights and transformers and Disney princesses and handmade craft stick ornaments and salt dough handprints. Bing Crosby is on the turntable. And yes we had 42 meltdowns today. Yes, my patience was thin by bedtime. Yes, we wanted to make healthy food choices after Thanksgiving, but in the end we still ate pumpkin pie for all three meals. Yet, in this little moment, Iโ€™m feeling some seriously deep contentment. Happy to carry that special feeling of true thanksgiving in my heart a little longer. ๐ŸŽ„โค๏ธ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป #thankyoujesus #lucymichele #christmastree

Sam found his grandpapaโ€™s glasses today and insisted on wearing them even though he couldnโ€™t see a thing. Sure was cute though! ๐Ÿค“ #samuelscott #thanksgiving #thanksgiving2017

โ€œLet us come before Him with Thanksgiving.โ€ A lovely reminder in this little corner of our bedroom for today and always! And we have lots to be thankful for this year. The grace and mercy of Christ and the health of my family are at the top of my list. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Happy thanksgiving from our brood to yours! Letโ€™s eat!! ๐Ÿฆƒ #thanksgiving #thanksgiving2017 #thankful

One little pumpkin mesmerized by the fireplace in her aunt @jess.l.rains and uncle @codyrains new house. Both kids were sitting shoulder-to-shoulder like this for a few seconds, but of course we couldn't whip our cameras out fast enough to capture it. We loved checking out the new digs today, guys. And the fact that you're more fully moved-in, landscaped, painted and decorated in two days than we are after six years in our current home.... was humbling. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป I foresee lots of memories here!!! ๐Ÿกโค๏ธ #lucymichele

Friday morning means treasured mom + Lucy time. More accurately, go into Target and spend money for no reason because you have two hours to kill. ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿป There are two things that we cannot keep in our fridge - berries and yogurt. And today, I forgot to grab either of them. Two hours at Target, and no berries. No yogurt. ๐Ÿ˜’ I had #onejob. I did, however, get a new tumbler on clearance and a really cozy pair of socks though. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ #getusedtome #lucymichele #18monthsold #targetrun
