I’ve Cream Truck!

Nov 22, 2020

Hello:

 

The ice cream truck came by today and the nephews came over to get their favorite treats! But Elise, I hear you say, it’s fall! It’s almost thanksgiving - it’s too cold for ice cream! Well, in Louisiana we don’t exactly get seasons. It’s still pretty much summer here at a lovely 76 degrees. It gets chilly in January, and warms back up around Marci Gras (late February). That means that kiddos here get extra time to play outside and have a really great childhood. 

Love,

Elise and Cory

Sweet Moments with Sugar Cane

Nov 12, 2020

Hey y’all:

 

It’s grinding season! What’s that? It’s when the sugar cane gets harvested and converted to sugar. I remember being a little girl watching them harvest sugar cane with such delight; who doesn’t love big tractors? My nephew came visit his grandparents so they could watch the harvest. I love moments like these. It connects us as a family and us with the land and the traditions we have in our area. My grandfather was a sugar cane farmer, and I grew up putting cane syrup on my pancakes. I can’t wait to share grinding season with our future child. 

with love,

elise and Cory 

Merry Thanksgiving?

Nov 08, 2020

Hey friend:

 

Is it early for a Christmas tree? Yes, by quite a bit, but we don’t care! 2020 has been such a long year with Covid and all, that I figured what’s the harm with having the joy of the season fill our home with peace and love a bit early this year? I looking forward to hearing your family traditions during the holidays so that we can share them with your child. For us, it’s all about family time and togetherness. 

lots of love,

Cory and Elise 

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

cory is an old man, I’m a butterfly, and Louis is a skeleton. Every Halloween we go to my sisters go hand out candy. This year, it’s a social distanced Halloween, but it still promises to be a fun one!

Sweater weather

Oct 18, 2020

Hey y’all:

 

Ok, full disclosure it was sweater weather for about 2 hours this morning, and then it went right back to summer, but doesn’t Louis look adorable in his sweater? The answer is yes. Yes he does. 

 

Praying for a cold front,

Elise and Cory

Winter Garden

Oct 04, 2020

Hello:

Its below 80 degrees outside, so that means fall is in the air! It’s time to plant our winter garden. My father loves his grandchildren so much and makes sure they get the joy of planting and watching their plants grow, just like he did with my sisters and myself. We grow broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots in the fall. Here is a picture of my dad and my nephew planting a vegetable. I can’t wait for your child to learn how to garden. 

love,

Elise and Cory

A niece? How Nice!

Sep 04, 2020

Hey there:

I love spending time with my nephews and my niece;  I got to hold and take care of my niece the other day and we played with my phone and we got this picture. I love life’s small moments like these, don’t you?

Thinking of you,

Elise and Cory

 

Working from Home

Aug 18, 2020

Hello!

Since Covid happened, I’ve been so blessed to be able to work from home. Here’s a picture of Louis in my home office watching traffic go by on our quiet little street. I can’t wait to have my home office filled with a bassinet; that way our kiddo can stay by my side even when I go back to work. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Thinking if you,

Elise and Cory

Nap time!

Jul 29, 2020

Hey there:

 

We put the nephews down for a nap and Louis, our dog, was here for it! He believed these blankets were for him and joined the boys in a nice nap. 

lots of love,

Elise and Cory
