Some “bunny” is ready for Easter! 😆 It’s crazy to think that it’s only a month away! 😳 If you’re looking for something to put in your little ones basket, head over to @dittybirdbooks They have the cutest musical books ever! Each page has a button that plays songs and sounds! So, not only are they fun but they are educational as well. 🙌🏻 Swipe over to see how much Tate loved them and couldn’t wait to read one himself! 😂 And check out my stories if you want to see the books in more detail and hear how they sound! And you might just hear a cute little Hazel voice in there too! 🙃 . . . #educationaltoys #easterbasket #babyboy #momlife #babiesofinstagram #babystyle #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #motherhood #largefamilymom #boymom #family #babytoys #bonnetbabe #largefamily #lovemyboy #babyfever #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #boys #babyphotography #babylove #nikon #booksforkids #kidsbooks #kidmodel #babymodel #cutebaby

Universal was so much fun! It was a totally different vibe from Disney World though. We are diehard Disney lovers so we couldn’t help but compare the parks all day long. The consensus at the end of the day was that although we had a blast we definitely prefer Disney! The one thing about Universal that was a super bummer was that the little kids could hardly go on anything. I went to bring Tate on the Cat & the Hat ride and he wasn’t tall enough. 😳 It’s basically a ride like Winnie the Pooh so I was caught off guard. And Easton is 3 so we had to pay for him and he could barely go on anything either. So it was a lot of money to spend when there was so little he could do. It definitely had more thrill rides for the big kids but it had hardly any family rides. We are used to taking the little ones on everything so it was a bummer that we couldn’t do that there. It’s definitely a great park but it’s totally not for little ones. I think if they are going to charge for ages 3 and up, they should have more than a couple of rides that they can go on! 😜And that’s my #birchwoodcrewreview 😆 . . . #universalstudios #siblings #siblinggoals #momlife #familymemories #familygoals #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #makingmemories #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #themepark #familyfun #largefamily #kidsofinstagram #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #drseuss #childhoodunplugged #harrypotter #familytime #vacation #vacationmode #familyiseverything #adventureisoutthere #travelmore

Having a big family means that we get tons of comments. Some are very rude and some are so unbelievably nice. I’ve shared stories about people being mean so here’s a “faith in humanity restored” story. While in Florida, we were walking into a restaurant and suddenly an older woman excitedly came running over to us with her husband behind her. She asked “Are these all your children?” And when we said yes, she clasped her hands together and said “They are all so beautiful. Your family is so beautiful.” Her husband then counted and said “Ten kids! So wonderful! Such a beautiful, beautiful family”. He then took his wallet out and said “Here, $20 for you to use to eat!”. We were stunned and told him “Thank you but you don’t have to do that.”. And he took the twenty and stuck it in my hand and said “Your family is beautiful! Take it and tell everyone that a couple from Quebec thinks you are wonderful and is so happy to give you $20.”. So we Thanked them and as they walked away they continued to tell us just how beautiful they thought we were. My heart was so very full after talking to them. So, to the amazing couple from Quebec, Thank you for your kindness and Thank you for showing my children that there a really, really good people in this world who are not only happy to see our large family but also think that they are beautiful. ❤️ . . . #motherhood #siblings #siblinggoals #momlife #candidchildhood #familygoals #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #reallifestory #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #instastories #parenthood #largefamily #disneysprings #goodfood #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #girlmom #boymom #happiness #brothers #sisters #momentslikethese #payitforward #familylove #kidsofinstagram

He has perfected the Flynn Rider smolder! 😆 Hi guys! It’s been awhile! 😜 It’s school vacation week here so we decided to cheat on Disney and take over Universal Studios! 😬 We had a blast and the weather was absolutely amazing. It was just what I needed to recharge my soul. I came home feeling so relaxed and content and so happy. It’s amazing what the sun, warm weather and sand on your toes can do for you! 🥰 . . . #beachbaby #babywearing #beachlife #momlife #candidchildhood #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #motherhood #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #shotoniphone #photooftheday #largefamily #kidsofinstagram #photography #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #babyboy #pureflorida #childhoodunplugged #vacationmode #beachday #flynnrider #smolder #disneylife #goodforthesoul #babiesofinstagram @pureflorida

On today’s episode of Supermarket Sweep . . . 😆 I’m really showing my age referencing that show! 😅 So, do you want to hear a grocery shopping fail story?! 😬 I brought my two oldest boys to help me so that it could be a quick trip! That should have been my first clue that it wasn’t going to be a quick trip! 😜 To make a long story short, we went to the register with two carts and walked out with two carts. Unloaded two carts and went home with the contents of those two carts. Unbeknownst to me, while I was paying, a third cart was loaded that my lovely boys, who were literally helping load, “didn’t remember”. So after a 35 minute drive home, I’m putting things away and start realizing I’m missing a bunch of things. The boys are clueless, literally looked like this emoji 🤷🏻‍♀️ and I had no idea what could have happened. After a phone call and a 35 minute drive back I found out that there was a third cart that was left behind. But the cashier put all of the stuff back because they didn’t know whose it was. 🤔 So I had to shop all over again to rebuy everything I already bought! 🤗 Kids are so much fun! 😐😂 . . . #groceryshopping #motherhood #siblings #kidsarefunny #momlife #candidchildhood #familygoals #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #motherhood #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #motherhoodunfiltered #parenthood_moments #largefamily #mothersarepowerful #motherhoodunplugged #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #boys #childhoodunplugged #reallife #truestory #brothers #food #momtruth #momproblems

I have been so excited to post these pictures that I took of the super awesome @replayrecycled that I was gifted! 🙌🏻 This is my first time creating a display like this, how did I do?! 😅 #ad We have used Re-Play products for years and absolutely love them! Not only are they durable and come in amazing colors but they are literally made from recycled milk jugs!!!! How awesome is that?! And for the entire month of January you can save 20% on all white products, just click the link in my bio! 🙃 And on a side note, taking pictures of cute plates and cups is so much easier than taking pictures of kids! 😂 . . . #replayrecycled #replay #recylced #productphotography #momlife #candidchildhood #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #motherhood #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #motherhoodunfiltered #foodphoto #largefamily #foodie #fooddesign #desserttable #motherhoodunplugged #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #productplacement #photography #dessertsofinstagram #getinmybelly #foodstagram #foodphotographer

How many kids can you fit on one couch?! The answer is 18! 😳😂 All of these kiddos belong to just TWO families! 10 are mine and 8 are my amazing cousins @kirstin_mitton And if that wasn’t cool enough, we also have 2 sets of Birthday twins! My Teagan and her Brody were both born on 3/17/08 and my Easton and her Harper were both born on 8/3/16!!!! How amazing is that?! 😁 So, without further ado, Happy New Year from Connor, Emma, Tucker, Kaden, Reilly, Teagan, Brody, Tysen, Ella, Ava, Landon, Aubrey, Beckett, Hudson, Easton, Harper, Hazel and Tate! 🎉❤️ . . . #motherhood #siblings #siblinggoals #momlife #candidchildhood #familygoals #momofmany #largefamilylife #bigfamilylife #cousins #largefamilymom #ourcandidlife #family #motherhoodunfiltered #parenthood_moments #largefamily #mothersarepowerful #motherhoodunplugged #megamotherhood #largefamilyliving #bigfamily #cousinsforlife #childhoodunplugged #traditions #2020 #childhoodmemories #cousingoals #familylife #nye
