rachfrakes Just can't get enough of these guys together. // Also luke said his first prayer in primary today and I just died. Of laughter, because he prayed that we could all have the "holy monster", who apparently lives upstairs in in our house. 17h
  •   meredithtutt that kid 17h
  •   olive_thethings Holy monster!! I'm dying. Also glad I wasn't the only one busting up in primary. Olivia gave the talk but instead of repeating me she would guess at what came next. I just lost it up there. 16h
  •   mrs__busch Cute little ones in primary are Best! 7h

rachfrakes She woke up early from her nap crying for me to "hold it Essie", so I did, and, . cancel all my plans, 'cause I'm staying here in heaven all afternoon. 3d
  •   clairejharper you're hair is always so lovely! 3d
  •   jenheinerfit Awwww such a precious moment!! 3d
  •   jamihirst So sweet! You always look perfect! Don't know how you do it. You're seriously superwoman. 3d
  •   mama2thadivas Perfection 3d
  •   rachfrakes @clairejharper @jamihirst you guys are super nice. The secret is lazy: I only wash & curl my hair 2x a week and it just lasts, so I look like I have it together but really I can barely be bothered to brush it 3d
  •   jamihirst Effortlessly gorgeous. Even better in my book! 3d

rachfrakes Little Picasso practically has stars shooting out of his face. He is pleased as punch that I hung up the family portrait he painted, "wike a real real picture, mama!" (You can barely see it, but he gave himself extra big arm muscles and little E has the sweetest pigtails. And I have a football head and everyone is wearing shoes.) ((too bad it's still January and I can't count this as next months #we4frakes )) 4d

rachfrakes Elsie donned two necklaces, a hair bow and a tiara and spent the morning twirling, singing "Essie's so itty (pretty)". Little girls man. 6d
  •   littlealivia Well she IS sooo pretty! 6d
  •   jamihirst What a beauty. I love little girls and their confidence! If you give Taylor a compliment, she says, "I know!" Gotta make sure they keep it during those rough school years. 6d
  •   lindsmac88 She is adorable. Reagan might suggest she needs a tutu! 6d
  •   rachfrakes @lindsmac88 she has one tucked away waiting for her birthday! 6d
  •   mama2thadivas Little girls are the best! 6d

rachfrakes A long lazy morning of games with this guy. He talked my ear off about monsters and dinosaurs, batman and raccoons, rattlesnakes and how some cookies would make him sooo happy. I'll listen to anything that comes out of that face (and make him cookies too). 7d
  •   whithanson So cute!!!! 7d
  •   jamihirst Love this! What are good favorite games? With Taylor's birthday coming up, I know a game would love a new one! 7d
  •   rachfrakes @jamihirst this is a superhero memory game (all the girl heroes/villains too) but he also really loves jenga. I'm thinking about hungry hungry hippos for his bday. 7d
  •   jamihirst Wow haha *she would love a new one Hungry hungry hippos is a classic! Good idea! I think she's too OCD for Jenga 7d
  •   kelsbhill Colby loves hungry hippos and a new favorite is chutes and ladders. What kind of plant is that rach? I'm kinda obsessed 7d
  •   jamihirst However, come to think of it, it might be good therapy for her! Haha I'm going to seriously consider it. Thanks 7d
  •   rachfrakes @kelsbhill I think it's called a snake plant and I love it. 7d
  •   helloemilyjean adorable 4d

Normal Rachel Frakes
rachfrakes He disappeared around the side of our house for about 15 minutes and then came running. "Mama mama come see! I have a surprise for you! I jus' gonna show it to you!" Turns out he made me a very special cake (just for me and his elsie girl) out of rocks and snow with chalk candles for my birthday. Which is in July, but I'll take it. 1.15.15 2w

rachfrakes I have two resolutions this year: first, not to pass any more kidney stones, because H no. The second is to take a photo of all of us every month, so here's #we4frakes in January. 2w
  •   meli_williams Hahaha. Great resolutions. 2w
  •   juuuulie858 Such a beautiful family ! 2w
  •   olive_thethings Love it!! I need to do this. As vain as it might feel to take pictures of myself I imagine my kids might like to seem them someday. 2w
  •   cnmorris Love this idea!! 2w
  •   c_willie717 I might just have to steal this idea. I have the hardest time taking selfies because it feels a little self-centered but I want to be in more pictures with my fam. 6d
  •   rachfrakes @c_willie717 do it! I want my kids to see me WITH them when they're older. Doesn't count as a selfie if your kids are in it, right? 6d
  •   c_willie717 @rachfrakes I like the way you think! 6d
  •   r_r_joy This is so true! 4d

rachfrakes Found these two coloring away this morning, both super serious about it. 3w
  •   rachfrakes @discokittyy @mikellejade you guys are too nice! What you can't tell is I haven't vacuumed since before I was in the hospital but mostly it just helps that we have a play room so the toys stay out of the bedrooms, and there is a basket downstairs for all the toys that make their way downstairs. For the rest of the stuff I just stick to a schedule. You know, sheets/towels washed on Mondays, bathrooms on Tuesdays, etc. I like clean and I like cleaning and that's probably totally weird. 3w
  •   discokittyy @rachfrakes gosh I need a schedule then. I usually end up doing it all in one day in a frantic "I haven't showered nor do I plan on it" kind of day running around cleaning moulding and folding clothes 3w
  •   rachfrakes @discokittyy yeah I did that when our place was smaller but now with a house and two kids it was too crazy and I was exhausted and unshowered too it's so much more manageable when each day has one or two "big" things + toy and regular daily kitchen stuff. I'm way less frazzled and have way more time for more fun stuff. 3w
  •   jamihirst You're my hero. They are adorable. 3w
  •   olive_thethings Your kids are so calm. Axel would be throwing. 3w
  •   ewm1958 What a great pic 3w
  •   leahcasefitness They are so cute! 2w

rachfrakes 1:00 church, man. It's rough. 3w
  •   lindserly That's the worst! We are still at 9 until our ward splits but I'm afraid we'll end up at 1. 3w
  •   n_hep My sister thinks the 11:00 block is the worst ... Cuts into lunch and nap time! 3w
  •   allieclaire I feel you!!! 3w
  •   cassietremblay Us too! I really have no idea what to do, it's his exact nap time ! 3w
  •   jtprice Right there with you. Sunday may become my least favorite day. We had a lot of melt downs today 3w
  •   preethib7 We just switched back to 9 today and I'm all good luck this year! Fwiw, we would put kina down for a nap at church in her peapod tent in a spare room. 3w
  •   lynettecurtin We have 1pm church this year too! I hate it. 3w
  •   ashbell626 That is the worst! We had it last year. 2w
