BECKAM | 4 years old

I officially have a four year old in my brood of children.
And it is truly hard to believe that he is such a big kid already.
This whole 'time' thing is really working against me lately, and suddenly my babies are practically grown ups.
Thank goodness Beckam is a momma's boy!
I can always count on him to sit and snuggle with me.
Or give me approximately a million kisses in a day. 
He truly is the sweetest little soul.

Can we talk about his heart?
Pure gold.
He is always looking out for others and very perceptive of others feelings. 
However... he is is also getting quite the voice of his own, and looking out for himself too. 
Especially when it comes to his brothers. 
I am beginning to see a bossy side of him...which is a dominate trait in both of his brothers... so I think he feels the need to fit in. 
Speaking of his brothers, Beckam has to be the very most loyal.
Even from a very young age, he has always had Brody's back.
And the moment Bennett was born, he took him under his wing also.
If Ryan is wresting and has Brody pinned, Beckam rushes over and starts trying to pull Brody out, yelling, "that's my brother! let him go!"
I love that he is always watching out for his bros, especially in public. 
His brothers are lucky.
Beckam has some things that he totally loves.
Animals are definitely one of those.
He goes and checks on his kitties multiple times a day, giving them all sorts of cuddles, even though he is allergic to them.
Our dog is also very loved by him.
And his sweet voice when he talks to them!!! It just kills me.

Some of the other notable loves of his are... his dirt bike, playing anything with Brody, playing by himself (which he is quite good at), finding worms in the garden, and snuggling his mom. :)
While he is super sweet and lovely and loyal... he is also very opinionated and a terrible listener.
He is also the very worst at cleaning up any mess that he has made.
He also knows how to make up for it when someone is mad at him.
So many kisses, so many hugs, and so many times of saying "I'm sorry" with his incredibly long lashes flashing in my face. 
I love this kid SO much it's crazy.
His jokes, his infectious laugh, his crazy cute dimples.
I can only hope he stays this charming forever.
Happy fourth birthday precious Beckam!!!


a bounce house party | beckam turns 4

This last Sunday we celebrated Beckam's 4th birthday. 
I was determined to not get too involved in throwing a big bash, and focus more on the things that he would love and enjoy. 
Really, the only early prep I did do was go to Target a week or so before the party, and have him help me pick out a couple of items of decor. 
It was very liberating. 
It turns out... zero prep means you can still have an awesome party.
Maybe because I busted out some cake pops the night before the party....
Or, it was most likely the fact that I got a bounce house. 
Never have a party without a bounce house.
I have told you this before.
If you learn just one thing from all of my blogging, it should be this fact.

Cakepops + bounce house = 
Gosh he's cute.
You know who else is cute?
He had a whole lot of freedom to roam the food tables, and he took full advantage of it.
Double fisting it here with a strawberry in one hand and a chip in the other.
And look how TALL he is!!
Brody was darling as always too, but was far too busy running wild with friends, and tackling girls in the bounce house, to get near me for a solo picture.
I did happen to snag a pic of a group of the kids though... and as you can see Beckam looks like he is having the worst day of his life...
 Cakepop with a candle to the rescue!
The morning of the party I found a box of deflated beach balls that we had ordered back around Easter time.
You may recall my farmer's idea to play a life size version of hungry-hungry-hippos?
This was what they were for. 
But they came after Easter.
Amazon fail.
They certainly came in handy for the party though.
24 beach balls.
We strung some, we threw some in the bounce house, and a good dozen of them were used by the adults to kick at each other with as much force as possible.
Quite a lot of fun, in fact.
We wound up the party with some gift opening...
And I am still completely unsure of who gave Beckam what.
A bunch of kids with a pile of gifts is pure chaos.
And I barely tried to oversee it.
 All in all, this kid had the very best party.
AND, if that wasn't enough...
The next day was his actual birthday.
If you don't follow me on Instagram and watch my stories... you are missing out.
I posted Beckam's BIG surprise on Monday, and he was just the sweetest.
He got his very own little dirt bike.
With training wheels.
And safety gear of course.
He has to be the cutest 4 year old ever, cruising around on it.
It is safe to say that he will be disappointed for the rest of his life when it comes to birthdays.
This one takes the cake.


oh hey, friday | farewell

Well friends, this is it.
A final oh hey, friday!
AND, well... I'm okay with that.

So, nothing like a little farewell post to plug my own business ventures!
Well, one business venture really.


I am starting a fun little business for brand photography and instagram marketing!
IF you have any products that you are making and selling, OR just need professional product photos taken, I'm your gal. (email me here)
I have been doing mostly kids clothes BUT I have a few new jobs in the works (non clothing related) and I am so excited.
Go and give my IG a follow HERE.
And check out my unfinished website HERE.

2 | FARM
Well, the farm isn't necessarily a new business venture, BUT our office kind of is.
My parent's are coming to the farm next week and I am thrilled to put my dad to work on helping finish our office/homeschool room.
It will be a while before I get to decorate it, BUT its currently in studs, with a concrete floor.
SO, really anything is progress.
Once there is any progress to share, I will try to that on my personal IG stores.
Follow me HERE.

I get a bunch of questions regarding homeschooling.
Assuming I can get my blogging act together, I will be posting more regularly about homeschool.
What are the types of things you would be interested in seeing?
Any specific questions you'd like answered?
Give it to me!
This blog has gotta get it's feet back.

My sweet little Beckam is having a birthday very very soon.
He really wanted a bounce house, because... who doesn't?
And while I don't make super cute invitations, my gal Karli does!
So cute!!
Go to her Etsy site HERE, and stock up on invites!!

My children are obviously the most talented models ever. Ha.
They get their fair share of time in front of the lens.
I share all of their precious little poses and outfits over at their personal IG page... HERE.

Ok, there you have it.
A whole lot of goodness for you, and a lot of following that you need to do.

And a lot less plugs from me in the near future.

Have a happy weekend, and a very happy mother's day to all you mama's out there.
I'll be enjoying some time at a spa without my children.

Now, FINAL link up. Go.
