family after-dinner jobs (part 2)

  Check out that good dad.

Thinking about Father's Day coming up and how lucky we are to have him...

(Part one to the family dinner clean-up is back here.)

I'm guest-posting today over here.  A word of warning: Naomi and her cute family including new breathtaking baby (plus her awesome style) will suck you right in for a while...and may cause some IWAN too :)


  1. I just came across your blog (thanks to naomi) and already love it. you have a wonderful family and a great outlook on life!

    thanks so much for sharing- new follower here!

  2. I love this video! Such a fun family. Loved seeing you post on Naomi's blog too :)

  3. i found your blog today on rockstar diaries. i have already read through soo many pages and plan to dive into many more. i have fallen in love with your family. you are a wonderful mother, in case no one has told you yet today. i've always wanted a big family. then we had our first, a daughter, three months ago, and i fell into postpartum depression. it's gone now, though, and i'm ready for another baby! my husband is no. 1, so i'm learning how that all works. anyway, i'm a new subscriber and your blog is my new favorite.

  4. love this. love your photography as take beautiful pictures. Love the rockstar had you on her blog so that I was able to find you! :-) Now that's a whole lotta love. ha. I am off to navigate through your blog...can't wait to read more!
    Aarean (come on over and visit my blog all about color! I think you'd enjoy it! But maybe I'm a bit bias?! ha)

  5. What an adorable family! I love your blog- I just found it from the rockstar diaries. Thanks for sharing!

  6. Like many others, I came across your blog from your guest post today. I wanted to thank you for sharing such a beautiful quote--it came at a perfect time for me, as I was frustrated with my "interruptions" last night, but then stopped and soaked in all the fun that the interruptions can lead to. The dishes can wait :)

    And you have a beautiful family!

  7. I just found your blog. I read a bunch of your posts.. including all about your daughter Lucy. I have to say you are the kind of mother I aspire to be. You are so strong and so wonderful and your children are so lucky to have you! I will pray for Lucy!! Stay strong!

  8. loving your blog!! from what i have read, your cute family reminds me of a family i use to nanny for in utah. {they have four girls, one boy and the boy is the oldest!}

    working for that family,{five years ago} put a strong desire of motherhood in my heart. your family totally reminds me of them.

    you have such a cute and inspirational family!!

  9. Just found your blog and I am loving reading about you and your sweet family! You are an incredible mother and such an inspiration for a young lady like me.

  10. I loved your guest post on Rockstar Diaries. LOVED it!
    I loved that quotes, "Interruptions"! Thank you! Just what I needed!
    I'm going to follow you too!

  11. I see a whole LOTTA having fun going along with that cleaning, now that's the way to go!!!
    love IT!

  12. Oh my goodness, I just came over here from your guest post on Miss Naomi's blog and I am so glad I did! Your family is so stinkin' adorable :) I just spent the last hour reading about your blog and Lucy and everyone else and I must say I am quite excited to keep following your family's adventures!

  13. hi!

    just discovered your blog today from the rockstar diaries, and you definitely have a new fan (aka stalker :)

  14. Nothing like the after-dinner dance. love it:)

  15. Shawni. Parenting question here.

    What kind of rules and guidelines do you have for technology around your house. (cell phones, i-pads, computers, tv, the whole she-bang)I am trying to figure out how to balance this with my own family. Part of me wants to just shun it all because I am so worried about my kids turning into huge couch potatoes or those types of teenagers that ignore everyone around them because they are texting or surfing all day. (i really hate that) Do your older kids have cell phones? Do you have rigid time limits? Do you ever have to take technology away? What about you and Dave? I want to be a good example to my kids too, but sometimes find myself constantly checking the news or craigslist or pinterest. Any good ideas?
