Head Diva In Charge

Early Friday morning, Travis and I flew up to the Arctic Circle (just kidding...kind of) to take care of some new house business and we left Mama Hop and Aunt Leanne in charge of the girls.  After their coronation, it was down to business as usual.
 Once Leanne changed into her robe and got comfy, it was time for the standard, ordinary, run-of-the-mill hug fest between the two most affectionate members of the family. 
 Of course Josie was eager to consume the hearty helping of love, undivided attention, and spoiling that Aunt Leanne always dishes out.
And Merryn was eager to consume a hearty helping of anything that Mama Hop dishes out because it's not every day that she gets cuisine that rivals Rachel Ray, Giada De Laurentiis, and Paula Deen combined!
We are so grateful that Mama Hop and Aunt Leanne were willing to assume all childcare responsibilities so that Travis and I could focus on selecting cabinets, paint, and flooring for our new igloo abode.  It's a luxury to be able to have a childless getaway, and even though we were very anxious to have our girls back in our arms, it gave us great peace of mind to know that they were having a blast back home.  Here are a few more photos that will be familiar to Instagram followers:
According to preliminary reports, the girls improved their grade substantially from the last time Aunt Leanne babysat. Tune in tomorrow for the update straight from the Diva's mouth.


  1. Are you moving to Alaska?!? You don't have to answer if you don't want that to be public knowledge, but I grew up there and my whole extended family still live up there.

    Love the pic of Leanne and Josie in her sleep sack. So sweet.

  2. I love this blog. It's so full of joy.
