Raleigh clocks out at 6:30 pm (and that’s after stretching it with a long bath 😐) so just me and the big boys tonight. You don’t have to tell me how blessed we are to have our health, I think about it daily. But, I’m grateful we could meet a few kids with so much light, who smile through the hardest of times. Thanks to my brother and his wife for allowing us to learn from these amazing kids, try to ease their burden AND party in an Ugly Cape while we’re at it. So proud to see their big hearts in action. And yes for everyone who asks Collin has always been that way: a big heart and a big tease. ❤️ Doorbell ditching Sub For Santa gifts and rolling away like a ninja since 1993.

The Lower Lights Christmas show: Boys were on the edge of their seats, eyes bugging out. At one point, Cal leaned to Russ and said “Mom’s crumbling again.” (Hayes coined that term when Raleigh would cry as a wee babe.) If you need your soul stirred go to a hymn revival. @thelowerlights

Even without the 3 rounds of pie, the couch full of giggling cousins, all great days are thanks to these guys.

17 Bijous! 16 more than we ever planned to do. 😂 Of all we have shared in that time, the same boots were an inevitability. ❤️ @rashellejohansson #bijootd

Heading to bed after a 17 hour day for @bijoumarket to find these two already there. Best welcome home ever!

Happy 17 months to the Baby Prince, Baby P, Buzz, Grubber, Pauly, Paul, Ralms, Rex. The sweetest sunshine soul with endless Xs and Os. Laugher at his own toots, lover of Top 40, “driving” my car, other babies and woof-woofs, all the books and expensive protein bars. Healer of hearts. We love you big time. #raleighrex

More dads than we know what to do with the last two weeks!! ♡ Russ’ stepdad of only a few years as a kid, but the one who comes 1400 miles every year to be with us. Who worked with Russ all day and cleaned my kitchen each night. Good as gold. Raleigh is still wandering around looking for Papa T, I am sort of too. 🍽🥣🍶

We read the first Harry Potter together this year and it enchanted these boys just as it did me 20 years ago. 👵🏼 They insisted on plowing through the movies after that and the rest is history. I love that their costumes represent whatever they’re into most each year. It works out because Cal is only interested in the deep cuts: Peruvian Vipertooth😂 so no fighting to be Harry. Rounded out with the Nimbus 2000 (he’s a good sport) The Golden Snitch and Luna Lovegood. Mischief managed. 💫

There’s cute costumes, scary costumes and then there’s Kartchner costumes. The foolery is genetic, I’m sure of it! @bekartchner 🐛#kortnismunch

Russ’ Dad came and helped him bust out the electrical at the house this week. Saved Russ a heart attack, an extra solid week of work, and $15k in labor. He wouldn’t take a dime and I just 😭😭😭. They’ve only spent maybe 4 total years of time together, but are so alike it’s scary. Family has never looked very typical for Russ and these moments make my heart burst! Big love for Papa Mike!

Blame Chatbooks for these showing up here too, but I can’t get over this pic. Cal weirding out and Hayes trying not to laugh. I often wonder what they think or will remember about my weird job, but bury me with these photos, mmkay? @heathermildensteinphoto x @smallfryblog x @hichewusa x @thestudiofortysix

The wind in that tuft of hair. 😂😍 He’s more wild than the other 2 combined at this age, but he’s pure gold all the same. 16 months of #raleighrex.

➀➁ years! Here is a scan of a print from our wedding day. 😂 We were either ahead of the #filmisnotdead trend or we’re really just old. 🎞🤷🏼‍♀️ I love this Muffin and would be lost without his steady presence in my life. 🥂10.20.05 by @mattclayton21

Things I have in common with Jersey cows: Skinny legs + a big bellay, getting real mad when you can’t sit by your bestie, hauling A when the bell rings for the carbs and you can stop chewing on salad. 9 month gestation and 45 years of nursing😉. Vermont I ♡ you.

If Cal's face doesn't sum him right up... (This was a couple weeks ago and I cried seeing the first walls go up. It's all framed now and they're onto the roof! I've got all the pics on @smallfryblog today for those of you following along.)

Hike notes: The boys all collected walking sticks and found Raleigh a small one to carry. By the time we got to the car I realized he had chewed through the top third and had a brown beard of wood shavings. 🤔 Happy Fall!
