and it's seriously one of the best investments we made when we built this house.
in the spring/summer/fall we use it often.
like 2 x's a week usually.
M is the fire master.
people may laugh at his obsession with building and maintaining a fire...
but secretly, i think it's mighty sexy! ;)
he also likes to call himself the marshmallow roaster extraordinaire.
i like it when he toasts mine so i can concentrate on warming up my chocolate on my graham wafer.
this girl would like to have a fire every night if we let her.
every day, "can we have a fire tonight?!"
she loves it!
and so do we!
we hope that as they get older, they'll use the opportunity to share/visit with us about their lives.
yay for quality family time!
ok, doesn't this look delish?
i will say that it was so awesomely yummy that i made 3 of them for ME.
no, i did not heat up the girls' chocolate for their s'mores.
i'm a great mom like that.
besides, would they really enjoy it all melty and gooey the way i like it?
please disregard my filthy fingernails.
i'm not a junky.
i really just did a whole whackload of weeding before we had the fire.
(and what is with my red forehead?!)
as you can tell, we put baby H to bed before we had this particular fire.
no one likes to see a baby stumble into the fire while saying, "issa haw!" (it's hot)
ok, i know you'll probably ALL ask so i'll share...
the sweatshirt is vintage gap, from highschool, circa 1994?
it's hot, i know!
i've kept it all these years because it does wonders for my figure.
i know you ALL want one!
check out your local thrift store and see if you get lucky.
don't be a hater if you don't find one.
you can also look extra cool if you wear socks with your crocs.
you don't need to thank me for that fashion tip.
