Sharing a little sneak peak of our property/homestead (not sure I feel qualified to call it that yet) and we have come up with a name; introducing....Cedar Brook Haven!! We have a laundry list of projects and ideas for this place so lots of updates to come. First up is a reno to our detached garage and a garage addition on the main house. A chicken coop has been commissioned and we'll be picking up chicks after we come back from a trip planned in February. Also we plan to plant several trees around the property, a garden, a small orchard, and start a compost come spring so we are in researching and planning mode on all of those. Any homestead / green thumb advice is welcome! Maybe after all that I'll feel less like a fraud calling this place a homestead. #cedarbrookhaven #thislittlehomestead #homesteading #homestead #raisingwildflowers #homesteadlife #puttingdownroots #wearethegardeners #gardenideas #chickencoop #projectproperty #knoxvillemoms #mymidweekstories

We love her so 💕 #babysister #fourgirls #babynumber4

🌹4 MONTHS 🌹 Happy 4 months to Remi Rose! Swipe right for progression of facial expressions whenever big sisters come around! This little one is adored, and she loves it! Her fourth month was spent celebrating the Christmas holiday with family and much enjoyment watching the Christmas tree lights blinking. Mommy also broke out the basket of baby toys and Santa brought an O-ball rattle. She can now grasp her rattles, and it's a delight to watch her concentration as she purposefully moves her hands. She loves sitting up on your lap looking around, especially being shuttled around the house on her sisters' laps. Lots of chewing her hands and drooling. Remi weighs about 12 1/2 pounds. I'll update after her pediatrician appointment on Monday. #remirose #4thbaby #4monthsold

Merry Christmas from the Hicks Six!

Another turn around the sun and what a year it's been! How are my babies 6?! Brooklyn and Blakely, we've had quite the exciting year of growth, and I love watching you blossom into your own! Blakely, you started violin in January and have been at it for a whole year, and I am proud of your diligence even though you had no idea the work involved in learning an instrument. Brooklyn you started piano in the fall, and I love watching your face beam with pride as you show me what you've learned at lessons. I've loved all the plays, ballets, and read alouds we have been able to be entertained by together. You both continue to award me the title ballet mom 🩰. You started kindergarten this year, and I have had so much fun diving into that with you. You're even reading now, which blows my mind! You love pirates and sharks, which I love for its uniqueness. We went to Disney, toured New England, took several camping trips, and more. We played a whole lot. We moved to a new house! Most importantly we welcomed your baby sister Remi in September, and and it has been the best thing in the world watching you two with her. Every day with you two is a blessing 💕 I can't wait to see what this next year has in store! #raisingwildflowers #twinssisters #twins #twinmom #thisissix #happybirthday

🌹3 MONTHS 🌹 Happy 3 months to sweet Remi Rose! We adore your smiles, giggles, and coos. You love looking at mobiles and and the Christmas tree and kicking the bell on the play gym. You also love being loved on and held by your sisters and chats with Mommy. You started sleeping through the night the week of Thanksgiving (which mama is super thankful for) 🙌🏼. You weigh 11 lbs 10 oz. #remirose #babygirl #3monthsold

Annual Santa visit ✅ Brooklyn asked for Snow White shoes, Anna and Elsa boots, Elsa dress without glitter (Daddy doesn't let glitter in the house), Anna and Elsa legos, and a football to play with Daddy. Blakely asked for a pirate lego set, Anna and Elsa lego set, reading books, and a bigger racetrack set. Heidi asked for Anna and Elsa legos and Anna and Elsa shoes. Remi asked for milkies 💕 #christmasvibes #christmaswithkids #santaphotos #santaclaus #christmaslist #santaeric #knoxvillemoms #theholidaysinthemaking

Happy Thanksgiving from the Hicks Girls 🦃

AD The holidays are upon us and that also means my big girls are another year older. I can't believe that they'll be 6 within the month! 🤯 And I don't know about ya'll but 6 seems like a whole new tier of gift giving. They have their individual interests and opinions on gifts more so than ever before. One thing they wanted to try was a kid's makeup kit. Can you say #girlmom? So glad I got this Cra-Z-Art Be Inspired Glitter Makeover Studio with Case Makeup Set from @Walmart! Its a great and affordable introduction to makeup for them to explore and have fun with. Even if blue eye shadow makes me twinge, they absolutely love it! You should have seen how giddy they were to get this. I also love that the makeup is safe and nontoxic. The perfect stocking stuffer! #beinspiredwithcrazart @crazart #walmartfinds #stockingstufferideas #thisis6 #holidayfun #raisingwildflowers #girlgiftideas #twinmomlife #ournovemberstories #twinssisters

🌹TWO MONTHS 🌹 of Remi Rose! Remi has been along for the crazy ride on this second month of life moving to a new house! She's now 10 lbs 8 oz. She is cooing and smiling and very close to rolling over. She loves sitting up in her sister's laps. She's also starting to stretch her sleep at night, which Mommy is grateful for. We're excited for settling in for our third month! #remirose #remirose #twomonthsold #monthlypicture #raisingwildflowers #everydayonmonday

Happy Halloween from our Oceanic Crew! We've got Captain Barbosa and his Monkey Jack, Captain Jack Sparrow, a Hammerhead Shark, a Mermaid, and a Jellyfish. Trick or treating with friends around the neighborhood was peak childhood! 🎃🦇👻 #trickortreat #halloweencostumes #halloweenfamilycostume #thisnewmonthfeeling #happyhalloween #thisishalloween

We've been a little quiet on here about the added chaos this past month (we were negotiating offers the day before Remi was born 🤪) but wanted to make sure all the pieces fell in place first. Well its looking official now! We're moving next week!! Right down the road but we finally found a little plot of unrestricted acreage (4.5 acres with a renovated ranch home) to call home!! We're excited to get to work on turning this place into our dream home! #weremoving #raisingwildflowers #homesteaddreams #knoxvillemoms #ifthelordbuildsthehouse #thisfalllookbook #thehickssix #rockytopyoullalwaysbehomesweethometome

It was fun to do a two week road trip with the girls (and grandma!) to Vermont and NY! Major flashbacks to my 50 state road trip when I had Heidi. I will say we very much missed the sprinter van on this trip as schlepping 4 kids in and out of hotels is no fun. What was fun was to incorporate some roadschooling exploring different areas of Appalachia into this trip as we read along with Grandma Gatewood. Here's some snippets from the trip! We did: — Bushkill Falls in the Poconos, PA (and dropped dad off for his '22 AT section hike) - The Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze and Sleepy Hollow, New York - Ben & Jerry's Factory Tour - Stowe, VT - Sugar Maple Farm in Montpelier - Apple picking on Lake Champlain - Harvest Festival at Billings Farm in Woodstock, VT - Covered Bridges Tour - Erie Canal Trail, Lock 17, and Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse - Watkins Glen State Park in Finger Lakes region of NY #raisingwildflowers #girlsquad #roadtripswithkids #roadtripusa #roadschool #roadschooling #theautumnpost #familytraveltribe #familytravelblog #familyadventures #travelingtoddlers #homeschoolfamily #homeschoolkindergarten

Top Places to Explore with Kids in all 50 States

My other must-see destinations in inland California are all breathtaking natural wonders and going from south back north include Joshua Tree National Park, Sequoia National Park, Yosemite National Park, and Lake Tahoe. Outside of Philly, a visit to Hersey Park beckons, as well as a stop at Gettysburg for an important history lesson Visit Newport and walk along the Newport Cliffs National Recreational Trail and tour the Breakers, a Vanderbilt mansion. My favorite natural destinations in Virginia include a drive down Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park, seeing wild mountain ponies at Grayson Highlands State Park or seeing wild coastal ponies at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge. Washington has several other national parks and sites that are must-sees including Mt. Rainer National Park (who dominates the Seattle skyline), North Cascades National Park, Mount Baker–Snoqualmie National Forest, and Mount St Helens National Volcanic Monument.
