A Life Stirred

Ten on Ten: The Runny Nose Edition

on November 10, 2014

I bet you just can’t wait to see our day in pictures–“The Runny Nose Edition” just promises awesome.

Ten in Ten is all about finding beauty in the ordinary, which can be hard sometimes.  It’s really hard when two out of two children have pretty bad colds.  By the end of the day, I was pretty much covered in snot.  [Don’t worry; I didn’t take a picture of that.]  But even if I didn’t capture beauty in today, I did capture life as it is right now.  As we all know, life just flies by, and eventually, I’ll be glad for the reminder of what life was like at this particular point in time.

Ready to go grocery shopping.  I love winter, but I hate getting the girls into winter coats.  Such a pain.

This cart is a monster.  I usually run over at least one elderly person a visit!

The girls are in charge of buying the bread at the discount bread store.  Jo handles the money.  Claire handles the bread.

At this point in the day, it was 11:00, and we had spent the ENTIRE morning doing grocery shopping (we went to 4 different places to hit all the sales).  I always feel like I deserve some sort of award on grocery shopping days.  Other than a full fridge.

My pastor challenged us to read Ephesians this week (a chapter a day).  It's been so good!

A switch flipped last week, and now she pees and poops on the potty!  (This might be the most beautiful picture of the day.)

Something clicked last week, and we’ve got a potty trained toddler!!  (This might be the most beautiful picture of the day.)

She woke up too early from her nap.  So we hung out.  I can't even tell you how much snot was on my face after this picture.

After this point in the day, things kind of went downhill.  I took pictures, but I haven’t really figured out how to take good pictures inside after 4:00.  It’s dark by then, and I can’t seem to get any pictures that aren’t blurry.  So I have a bunch of blurry pictures of grumpy kids.

It's cuter when you can't hear her.

Like this.  It’s cute because you can’t hear her.

I’ll spare you the 5:00 picture.  As a bonus, Claire and I took a selfie outside the bread store.  She’s the best at selfies.  A true 2013 baby.

She's even saying "Cheeeeese."

  1. Your day was much more adventourous than mine with two sick kiddos. I am not going to lie, ours was filled with lots of whinning, and lounging. So, a serious high five for conquering 4 stores with two sick kiddos. That is huge mommy points!

    I feel the same about the award for grocery shopping! You made me laugh and I also loved everything in your “What’s a stirred life?” post. 😀 For pictures after 4pm I use lightroom software or take a picture on all of the settings on my camera. One of them has to be for low light/high movement, right?
