I love how Instagram has the power to capture everyday moments that might have otherwise gotten lost in the shuffle.  But with a quick snap, they are recorded and remembered.  Here are a handful of those ordinary, but splendid moments in our recent daily lives.

Amazing the smiles you get when you feed this boy {brooks} ice cream with strawberries on top…

Twister with quadruplets… proving that 3 is a crowd and 4 is just plain chaos.

Wouldn’t you duck and hide if you saw this coming at you in a dark alley? {henry}

This Copycat Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup was the perfect warm-me up meal this week. Even the boys slurped it down.

The boys got a barbershop cut from my retired Math teacher yesterday in my hometown. {isaac} Love that I can go home to a town that never changes.

#SheReadsTruth has been soooooo good this month.  It’s never too late to dive right in.

So what do you do when Costco has boxes of shoes that fit all 4 of your children for good prices?  You pull an instant-try-on session via the shopping carts, that’s what!

Yep, they are still on a workout kick.  Shirts off, muscles out.

I was packing the boys lunches for their 1 day a week school this week and struck  by the miraculousness that we have quadruplets once again.  May I never lose the wonder. {Because you might ask – Contigo Cups, EasyLunchboxes Containers and Mabel’s Labels.}

And last night I was offered any chocolate I wanted from the newly opened See’s Candies at Keystone.  {My job may not pay the bills, but it has some fabulous perks.} Note to self, next time you have this kind of opportunity to indulge in all the dark chocolate you can digest, eat more than just a yogurt for dinner so you don’t get the shakes before eating all the  Scotchmallows, Dark Bordeauxs, Pineapple Truffles, or Butterchews of your dreams.  Maybe next time I can give Casey a run for her money. At least there are FREE samples any time!!!!

What’s been going on ordinary or not so ordinary in your life?  Are you on Instagram?  I’d love to follow your feed!

    I’m not on Instagram, but I enjoy watching you guys! I wonder what the mathematical possibilities are if you have 4 boys playing Twister? ;-) And yay for little boys with grownup haircuts! So cute!

      I will let you calculate the math on that one! At least I can check in on you on Facebook. :)

    ok, I love your photos. A few things:

    1. I’m now gonna make that soup this coming week, looks awesome!
    2. I just started #shereadstruth at the beginning of Jan., it’s sadly the first daily devotion I’ve done in years, and I’m honestly loving it.
    3. I’m so glad we went to See’s last night. It was so nice, and I’m not just talking about the chocolate.

    I LOVE InsaGram, too! I don’t seem to have time to blog lately but am able to take a few minutes each day to browse through fun pics there. Love the snapshots into the lives of our friends.

    * My fave in this set is the shirtless boys working out with you! Way to set a good example, Mama!
