Five on Friday

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Christina, April and Natasha for Five on Friday!

I've been wanting a map to hang in our living room so that we could pin our travels and Jake got me a really cool one for Christmas. I finally got it hung on the wall this past weekend and pinned our travels. The yellow pin is home (St. Louis, MO), the red pins are where Jake and I have traveled together and the blue pins are where we've traveled as a family. I can't wait to continue to add more pins to our map. ☺

Santa brought Avery a Frozen sleigh for Christmas. She LOVES it and was able to get it out a couple weekends ago while it was warm outside. She's gotten the hang of driving it pretty well. It's really cute!!

Last Friday was Jackson's 100th day of school! I can't believe he's a little more than half way done with the year already. Everyone in Kindergarten had to make a 100 days of school shirt and have 100 things on it. Jackson and I did a little research on Pinterest and he decided to do 100 sports balls on his shirt. I found these stick on foam sports balls at Hobby Lobby along with some foam letters to spell out "Having a Ball for 100 Days". It turned out really cute!

I thought I'd share a few pictures I've taken of the kids lately. Right after Christmas is my slowest time for Storybook Photography. It's cold outside and everyone has just had family pictures taken. So I don't have too much going on usually. It always gives me a chance to get my camera out around the house and take pictures of my kids in their own element, which I always enjoy.

Avery eating lunch last Monday while I was off. She LOVES peanut butter and often asks for a spoon full of it for a snack.

Jackson loving on Max. Max looks less than thrilled, but he tolerates the kids well. ;-)

Jackson and Avery have your typical brother/sister relationship. They often annoy each other on purpose and don't always play well together or agree on much, but this day I caught them playing well together with Jackson's Bat-Cave that he got for Christmas. It was a sweet moment and I'm glad I was able to capture it.

If you haven't seen it yet, please make every effort to see The Greatest Showman at the theaters. You will be so glad you did. It's SUCH a good movie. Probably one of my top 5 movies of all time. In fact, I loved it so much I'd pay to go see it again in the theaters.
