A Peek into the Casa Lifferth

Not much has been going on...but at the same time, so much has. Just the little things that make up day to day life around our crazy, baby-filled home ('cause you know, they're all babies to me :). It never ceases to amaze me how much my children change with each passing day. I blink and suddenly they're getting bigger and older...it's insane. I asked Georgia today when she got so big and she replied, "just in time."

Here's a peak into the Casa Lifferth:


Bad picture of Scarlett pushing Gee around in the doll stroller. It was hilarious, I promise.

Our attempt at an Easter photo shoot...we failed, of course. For the record, I promise my children started out with their hair done...:



Tricky Ezra




Scarlett did a whole lot of screaming...
and attempted to escape...

but we eventually got a smile or two out of her...

Not to mention, what would an attempted photo shoot be without a horrible trio shot?


Makin' some strawberry jam with the best helper ever (when he wasn't sneaking the strawberries, that is...):

There's a whole lot more where these came from

The first sprinkler run of the year:

Senor Scarlett

I found the cutest little fabric store the other day. It's ran by a sweet old foreign married couple. They gushed the entire time about how beautiful I was and how fabulous my shoes were (anyone who compliments my shoes gets an automatic gold star in my book). There wasn't a whole lot there, but there were a few gems. I got the fabric for this dress at a mere $2.99/yd. Scarlett has a matching dress out of coordinating fabric, only with a jungle green and teal palette.


On a final note...
Is this not the cutest face ever?

How lucky am I to come upon this gem of a post?!?! Uhhh, very. I loved, loved, loved the pictures!!
K. Hilarious that your daughter (the much smaller one) feels inclined to push other daughter (much bigger one) in the stroller...or that bigger daughter feels that she deserves to be pushed at all by Little!!
L.o.v.e.d. the Easter pics!! I believe you that their hair started out done. Seems that whenever I end up wrangling kids for their pics it ends up all messed up. *sigh* They look adorable in their outfits! I esp. love the pic of Georgia lying on the ground. Frameable i.m.o. Still laughing about the "getaway" pic and the token group shot. Priceless, I say, priceless.
Very impressed w/ your jam making skills. They look yumm-o! I ventured down the isle with the pectin and such and found the Ball one. Now I need to find cheap strawberries...
You did a fantastic job taking those pics of Georgia today!! They're beautiful!! You did a smash-up job sewing those dresses! Super impressed. Idealic, I'd say. ;)
Senorita...errr, Senor Scarlett is a crack-up. I love those kinds of pics of my kids. I have one of everyone with the "greasy" looking mustaches made w/ prunes or the devilish gotees. Timeless AND hilarious.
Ahhh, luuuved this post. Just loved it.

I love the Easter dresses. So adorable. At least your easter photo shot gave you a few to work with...
Also, who but you could be a rock star Whitney? I just had a baaad dye job. I was half tempted so repeat every cuss word I'd ever heard. I didn't, thankfully.
Anyway, you are right about the kiddies growing up. I can't even believe how much older Scarlett looks than the last photos??? how's that? craziness.

a) love the j crew-esque colors of the kids' easter outfits.

b) Evie has the same swim suit as Georgia, so sad she grew out of it.

c) I love, love, love the fabric! And the dress. Maybe I'll go make something instead of watching New Moon while Evie naps....

Megan said...

Can I just say...you guys make really CUTE babies! And seriously, when DID they get so big??? It seems like you just had Scarlett, and now look at her!

Nicole said...

I absolutely love the fabric and that super cute dress you made. I was wondering if you could possibly share a tutorial?

Aubrey said...

Looks like you've been having fun. I love your kids and am really jealous of Georgia's beautiful hair. Seriously! I'm trying to find a swimsuit for Lillian but they don't really make them her size...

Erica said...

you and your kiddos are absolutely gorgeous!

Such cute kids! Wish you guys lived closer. And I love the dress you made - too cute.
