Since I have finally moved up in the world and obtained an iPhone, I'm linking with Jeannett at Life Rearranged for InstaFriday. It has been so exciting to finally be able to use Instagram. My old phone was not compatible with the app...just one more reason to thank my hubby for the iPhone!

The weather this week has been pretty darn nice, as per the usual for where we live, so Olyvia, Ethan and I spent a lot of time at the park. Here is my little man with a stick he found and quickly renamed a sword.

Here is Olyvia having a lovely time on the play structure.

Carlos had a dining in mess night at the Staff Club just around the corner from us, two of the guys from work came to our house to get ready and they all walked over...gotta love a Marine in his blues.

This week was Olyvia's last week in her preschool program on base. She has loved the past year-and-a-half that she has been there. Her teacher, Miss Gail, is amazing and we can't wait for Ethan to join her class. 

This is Olyvia's school picture for this year. I cannot believe how grown up she looks here!

Now, I'm off to finish the preparations for our fundraising yardsale tomorrow and to go for a run...look for pictures of Carlos and the kids' attempt to make a house for the dogs!

life rearranged


  1. Have fun with your new iphone. Beautiful family you have there.

  2. I love your Olivia's name! So pretty! Don't you hate when school pictures come and they look so grown up? I don't like it one bit! I want them to stay little forever!

  3. Yay! Weren't you JUST telling me a few weeks ago that you wanted a PLAIN phone that could do nothing but call & take pictures??? Yeah.. thought so. haha. All it took was having that phone in your hands and you were hooked (before it was even activated). So glad you linked up for InstaFriday! I'm pretty sure I have the cutest niece & nephew ever. And.. my brother in law does look kinda handsome in those blues! ;)

  4. haha, well welcome to the iPhone world! Don't you love Instagram? I am such a bad photographer it feels like somehow with instagram my pix turn out ok, haha:)
