Our Home Videos

I started this blog mainly to keep mine and Jeremiah's family informed of our children's excellent cuteness.

I use it now to write, to communicate with new friends I've made and to share new designs and sales...

But this post is mainly a look inside our home and a peek at those delightful children (and Jeremiah).

Rose is a soccer superstar AND a rapper:


Jeremiah:


Max is just absolutely lovely:


We sing Happy Birthday to my sweet boy!:



If anyone is still interested in how my weight loss is going, I've lost 22 pounds so far. Because I'm a complete and total mess of a person, I'm totally not satisfied with this...but I'm keeping on keeping on. The one thing I've changed is eating noodles (which I wasn't at all before) mainly because I crave them and I'm afraid if I keep away from them for too long I'll just make myself a gigantic bowl of ramen one day and down the whole thing.

So I'm keeping cups everywhere around the kitchen and when I have dinner with the kids I eat one cup of what they're eating (unless it's a meat dish). For example, Friday night Elijah and I had whole wheat pasta, plum tomatoes, spinach and baby portabellos. (Jeremiah had bulk hot sausage, hot banana peppers, green peppers, red onions and tomatoes.)

I'm wearing 3 sizes smaller pants right now as we speak, but every time I look in the mirror I don't see the changes. It's sad, really.

Thanks for that up close and personal shot of Max's yummy food. I'm quite hungry now, to be completely honest.

I can't believe Jeremiah let you zoom in on his gray hairs. He must really love you.

Your family is awesome :)

As for you: you are too critical on yourself. If you're already 3 sizes down you should celebrate and congratulate yourself. Well, seeing as you don't I'll just do it: CONGRATULATIONS, ERIN!!!

I'm trying to work out what you mean by 'noodles'. As in 'pot noodles', or pre-cooked oriental-style noodles or what? Either way I'm now craving a Pot Noodle.

22 lbs. down and you don't see a difference? You're being too hard on yourself, girl! Go see your doctor and see what he/she thinks!

You have a beautiful family and I will be thinking about DJ Rose for days. Jeremiah will be darling when his hair is all gray. I promise you.
And I am so glad you are eating noodles. Noodles are good. And just because you can't see changes in your body, they are obviously happening.
