Update: Here are some short, quick insights on a variety of personal things I find interesting. I share a clip/snippet of articles and posts, reference the source article, and provide a personal comment/insight on the topic.
Treasured by every lady I know, Lily tries on her first set of little girl pearls. @paulhelmick on Instagram
Lily's build-a-bear got a wardrobe update... @paulhelmick on Instagram
Something happens inside a little girl's heart when you put a crown on her head... @paulhelmick on Instagram
This is a pretty cool toy. A pirate ship filled with water and you put little robot sharks in. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to assemble at all and finally just gave up and poured in the water... Just add robot sharks and Daniel was happy as could be!!...
One of the best parts a Christmas is getting the whole family together for dinner. It's fantastic just sit around the table and talk and spend time together. Kristen, Daniel and Lily. My mom and dad, my sister and her husband, and Kristen's mother and grandmother. So...
Daniel and his Christmas creatures. Listening to him talk while he plays with these little guys has gotten pretty interesting. His imagination just runs wild. @paulhelmick on Instagram
I don't think you're a daddy until you've put together (lots of assembly required) your first dollhouse for your daughter. Lily loved it! @paulhelmick on Instagram
Lily didn't get left out of the big creature collection either - it takes up half her bed! @paulhelmick on Instagram
I guess the bigger the bug the better! @paulhelmick on Instagram
What a special night to be with my sweetheart! Dec 25th 2015... The full moon hasn’t fallen on Christmas Day since 1977, and won’t come back for another 19 years. @paulhelmick on Instagram
Daniel loves to draw. His grandmother got him such an amazing art kit to enjoy. I can't wait to see what he comes up with! @paulhelmick on Instagram
You have to hand it to their merchandising team - home run... from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1Ywgf39
Last day of school, 2015, Christmas party with Daniel and Lily's class. His teacher helped them put on a wonderful drama show and had a bunch of great games for them to play on their last day. from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1QAtUXE
Daniel and Lily having a fun time playing cards with Mamaw (their great grandma 85) - they so look forward to time with her. from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1ZhHiSb
There wasn't a lot of snow... but what we had we made the most of!! The kids always love getting to visit my mom and dad. from Instagram: http://bit.ly/22gmtJl
I'm learning that there is a lot to learn in this game. I love how Daniel finds and learns something new every day with it. I have to say, much better than so many of the other games out there. from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1QxW0D0
Two seconds apart. Two different faces. Isn't it funny how fast things can change? from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1moLph6
Isn't R2D2 the most memorable robot ever? I can remember back to seeing Star Wars for the first time and just being so amazed as the film came to life in my imagination. from Instagram: http://bit.ly/1moKY6s
