mom, dad, ozzie and bedtime

Ozzie and I calmly sit down and enjoy our books before bed...

and then like every other boy in the house... It's time for all hands on 'wild time'

THEN time for bed


  1. I have been reading for awhile, and love your pictures! You have a beautiful family!

    Completely off topic....what products to you use in your hair? I have hair like yours, but can't get the nice healthy curl look.

  2. Thank you! :)

    I use Avalon organic shampoo and conditioner (and I only wash my hair once a week or sometimes longer) I also use potion 9 leave in conditioner. I know some people think it sounds gross but not washing my hair with shampoo everyday (I do take a shower and rinse it) has made a big difference. Our hair produces natural oils and if we are continually stripping them off our body produces more. It's an endless cycle. So once you adjust to only 'stripping' once a week your hair will be softer and not oily. I also only brush it once a week or so. I just run my fingers through it when I put the leave in conditioner in.

    Hope that helps!

  3. Sounds like a great bedtime routine. Interesting about your hair, I'm going to try that. It will cut down on cost of shampoo :)

  4. Oh, I just love those pics. The profile of the two of you reading is just precious. The expression on his face! I love it!

    And I only wash my hair maybe twice a week or it gets dried out. I think it is a curly haired thing. ;)

  5. That is a lot like ore bed time:) I love the photos like always.

  6. I love bed-time here! Evenings in general are my favorite times.... baths, books, lots of laughs, and finally bed. Some nights it looks a bit different, but it's pretty much always the same routine. And fun too!

    We're total hair buddies - I can go for weeks without using shampoo (if it was gross I wouldn't do it, but my hair does not ever get oily or smell funny. I have never once had oily hair in my entire life!) I rinse it and use conditioner, throw in some Bumble&Bumble and away I go! I love it!


  7. So they don't get to hyper to sleep? Jason does the same thing and they act like they're on crack for a good 30min!

  8. OPs, I was the annonymous. I accidently clicked the wrong idendity...

  9. Just popped over from another blog. What a beautiful family you have! I love your photography. You have a very creative perspective. Love that! Did you take photography classes? What kind of camera do you use? Sorry for all of the questions. I hope you have a great day! I'll come back again.

  10. Hmm, maybe that's why Oz doesn't sleep all night sometimes! ;-)

  11. Oh, my baby is starting to "read" before bed now. I love that time of day. And the "wild time" is fun too!!

  12. I just found your blog. Your family is so precious! I enjoyed reading through some of your posts. You are such a blessed mommy. I love seeing the joy you have for your little men! :)

    Wow, you really take beautiful pictures! You may have this on your blog somewhere, but I am wondering what kind of camera you use?



Thank you for blessing me with your words!
