roman + ross.

roman + ross. roman right now:
always wearing a scarf and gloves, even inside.
carrying "ross" (his stuffed dog) around everywhere with him.
reading his new bible at night with mama.
playing basketball outside with daddy and asher.
looking through the pages of calvin and hobbes.
eating with chopsticks.
jumping on the beds and jumping off the ledges in the living room.
saying "i don't want asher to grow up!"
yelling out, "halloween!" whenever we pass halloween decorations.
just being our little halloween-loving, growing-every-day, unique + creative little boy
and making us smile everyday :)

life right now.

we are in our new house now. some things are unpacked, a lot of things aren't. i feel a bit  overwhelmed because i have realized that we have too much junk and it bothers me. i mean my dream is to live in a one room teepee or a tiny tree house, but my reality is that i live in a three bedroom home filled with boxes upon boxes of STUFF that has nowhere to go but that i somehow feel the need to hold onto. sigh. comparatively we live very minimally and my husband and i feel very strongly about not owning lots of stuff. however, we have TOO much. i feel overwhelmed and stuck in our unpacking venture right now. blah. i took these photos of the boys a couple weeks ago before we took a family walk to the park. it was a very fun family fall-ish night. stress levels have gone down significantly by living in town. ahh the beauty of quick trips to the store! 
and in further news, my little ashey-pie was featured on spearmintbaby which made my day, so check it out!


IMG_9800IMG_9804IMG_9819IMG_9813IMG_9829you have no idea how many times i have ideas for photos and i wait too long and the flowers die or the field changes. everything beautiful out  in the country is only the same for an instant and then everything is changing, changing.
but i caught the soybeans at just the right time while they were golden yellow,  a little bit green still but also turning brown. and i caught roman in a good mood right after asher fell asleep for his nap, and he told me i could take a few photos of him across the street. the soybean field has now completely changed to brown, and our little four year old is ever so quickly growing and changing as well, his "4" shirt is just a little too short in the arms and he looks a little too much like a big boy since i gave his hair a little trim last week. luckily, he is still wonderfully little and cuddles and kisses and hugs and melts my mama heart each day.


baby curls.
