  •   uniqboutique Ermmmmm what happened to the baby?! 1mon
  •   swedestjen @uniqboutique um, RIGHT?!? Same with your boys though! I take one little break from IG, and I come back and you have teenagers posing as toddlers! Haha! X 1mon
  •   swedestjen @alissahibst I cannot answer that, but it makes me very upset. I'll admit it also makes me so giddy, because she's suuuuuch an adorable old-baby. (poor thing. Probably what she'll always be. Happy 30th Kajsa! Aww, you're such a cute old-baby...) 1mon
  •   srkron Sweet! She is adorable! 3w

  •   alissahibst 1mon
  •   swedestjen @alissahibst every 45 seconds, he would turn and earnestly inform us that we were closer to Uncle Jeff and Auntie Stef's house. We'd then have to verbally reaffirm this. And he would contentedly turn back towards the window. Until 45 seconds later. 1mon
  •   alissahibst Haha at least he understands physics...that the more you move in one direction the closer you get to that destination! Bahahaha 1mon

swedestjen [With Lyndon coming to the peak of his treatment and all of us fighting illness and insomnia, this December has been a difficult one for our family. We made the sad decision that we couldn't manage Christmas decorations or even a tree this year. So, as silly as it may seem, I was so delighted when this month's Peekapak came, and one of the crafts was making your own little tree. So this is our tree this year. It'll look so cute on top of a TV table with our gifts beneath. ] 1mon

swedestjen [Tobias and I got to go to this show this morning; we were given two tickets because his friend was sick and couldn't use them. A very fun, unexpected morning! I don't think Tobias knew what world he stepped into, but he's been talking about it all day. ️] 1mon

swedestjen [Driving into the city yesterday with a friend and the kids, and our first adventure was running out of gas on the side of the highway. The tow truck came and gave us enough to get to a station. We pulled out and something was still wrong. We pulled back over to the shoulder 100 ft in front of the tow truck. (He did laugh at us as he pulled forward to come to our rescue again to change our flat.) We only discovered later (after our whole trip had been fraught with disaster and thus rescheduled), THIS piece of metal had pierced and was INSIDE our tire!! We were very thankful we all were safe.] 2mon
  •   alissahibst Jennifer, that's outrageous!! I'm thankful the flat happened right after the gas incident...would've been awful (even more so) to have had to wait LONGER!!! 2mon
  •   swedestjen @alissahibst you have no idea!! Two hungry toddlers strapped in their seat already for half the afternoon by then! Whew! 2mon
  •   heathermhalvorsen What a crazy adventure! I'm glad you're safe. 2mon
