I thought it would be fun to do a currently post on each of my favorite people - I want to be able to look back and see what was going on in our lives (sidenote: The pics of the kids are current and were taken yesterday. No pictures were taken of myself and the hubs because we're both battling colds and yeah, I don't even think I brushed my hair this day. )

Started playing in an adult soccer league which is totally out of his comfort zone. He is super athletic and really good at most things but soccer isn't his thing so I applaud him for giving it a try.

Won big in one of his fantasy football leagues and used the money to buy us a nice new laptop. So thankful for his selflessness!


Really trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Part of my goals for this year is to really lose weight, not much but 5-10lbs is needed. It is so hard for me because I seriously love food

I recently found out I have an umbilical hernia that came from having Avery. I originally went to the dr for diastasis recti but found out I have that and a hernia.  Surgery is needed to fix the hernia and I will be having that probably next month. I know it's a very small procedure but any kind of surgery gets me all anxious, I just want it over with.


Is into his first season playing basketball. He was hesitant to play but with a little push from us he is giving it a try, which is all we asked for. If at the end of it he doesn't love it, that's ok, we just wanted him to be involved in something over the winter.

He is rocking 1st grade! Seriously, his teacher had nothing but amazing things to say about him at our conference and we are so proud! He is a reading/writing/spelling/mathing (ha ha I know this isn't a word but it fits, well kind of) machine!

Was in the church choir for the first half of the year (they just recently told us the choir was being cancelled after the holidays due to the teacher leaving and not enough kids wanting to do it) and was loving it. The fact that he got up and sang in front of everyone still amazes me to this day. He can't wait to start again in the Fall when they are suppose to be bringing it back.

Currently is obsessed with all things Star Wars. Rick and him recently saw Rogue One which made him even more obsessed.


Is doing really good at her first year of preschool. She enjoys going most days and others she clings to me for dear life

Is really a Mama's girl lately and I am not complaining one bit. She has always been about Rick but now that I stay home she has become so much about me too. She always says the sweetest things to me and is always giving me all the hugs/snuggles/kisses

She sings everything! It is so cute! If she is playing, she sings what she is playing, if there is music on, she is singing along. She has been putting on shows for us lately and it's the best.

She is so into arts/crafts (just like her Mama!) and that makes me so happy! She is really into drawing lately too and her people are just too cute.


Says the cutest things! She is all about saying I love you which I love. She is forming full sentences now and walks around the house like a boss (she is lucky she is so cute!)

She is obsessed with her little gymnastics class and is such a monkey

Girl is still obsessed with Frosty the Snowman. She demands it every time we get into the car and will find the DVD in the drawer and run around the house with it screaming "Frosty!!"

She loves anything to do with painting. Everyday she asks to paint.


Here are some outtakes from taking Braydens picture - Apparently when you're 6, taking pictures is the last thing you want to do.

And that's our lives currently! I'm hoping to keep this up, maybe once a quarter

*linking up with Home of Malones


  1. This is so fun! Yay for your hubby trying something new! I'm terrible at soccer. Oh man, I'm like one of those clowns who keeps kicking the ball and can never pick up the ball! Haha!! Don't get me started on my basketball skills, either! Haha!

    Ugh about your surgery! But hey, just think of it as a couple days of sitting down, watching some movies and having the roles be reversed and having people take care of you! There's a silver-lining somewhere in there to having to have surgery! ;). Take care, girl!

  2. Love this update on your sweet family. I hear you on the food thing too. Every day I tell myself I will eat more protein.... but I really want cookies. UGH! Praying your surgery is quickly done friend. I would be the same exact way.

  3. Love this post, Lizzie! It will be great to look back on one day. I am all about documenting the days as best as I can. Do you use the Timehop app? I will be praying for you and your anxiety about the surgery! The kids are adorable. I can so relate to the outtakes of Brayden. Mason is SO over pictures these days.

  4. Such a cute idea - it will be super fun to look back on and see what was going on at this point in time!

  5. I have a feeling my diastasis recti may also include a hernia as well. I'm going to stick with the exercises I've been doing for a little while to see if it makes the little lump/bulge go away before I see my doctor though. Does yours hurt? I always thought they hurt, but I've been reading otherwise. I love that you included updates on Rick and the kids in this currently post as well!

  6. I've had some small surgeries in my life, too and it is just never fun! I get anxious, too! Just remember it'll be quick and over with and then hopefully you'll get a day to relax in bed! I love how you do a Currently post for each person in your family! So cute and original!


  7. Boo for an umbilical hernia! Hopefully everything will be quick and easy. Keep us posted. I think I may have a minor one, but my midwife swears I don't. Every now and then it hurts SO BAD so that's what's making me second guess.

    The babies are all so sweet, and I love these pictures of them in their natural elements.

  8. This is a great idea to have updates all in one post! I'm sorry to hear about the hernia. I hope it all goes well and that you heal quickly! XOXO

    1. Thanks girl! I'm sure it will be fine I'm just a huge wuss!

  9. Ok I wrote a whole post on an umbilical hernia last year I believe. I had one after having the girls and I had it fixed, but it didn't take the first time. Or I had two hernias there which is what my second doctor thinks happened. But I had it again last February and the results are amazing. I love it. Recovery is sucky and painful, but you should be good to go after a week or two. I am so glad you are getting it repaired. Keep me updated on that.
