Photo Friday: Home for (After) Christmas 

We celebrated Christmas after Christmas with the Odom family when everyone could get together. We actually remembered to get some family photos. I think they turned out cute…even if Kate didn’t want to look at the camera and was not happy by the time we got to our immediate family photo! These are a fewContinue reading “Photo Friday: Home for (After) Christmas ”

And they probably did get busted for pulling Mama’s pretty ornaments off the tree!Garen took some cute pictures of everyone.

Photo Friday: Six Flags Holiday in the Park

Last Friday was Will and Anna’s last day of school for the holidays. We celebrated with another trip to Six Flags Holiday in the Park.  We have season tickets and also bought the meal pass, so we always eat there too.

Party Time:  Eight is Great

On August 22nd my big boy got a little bit bigger. We celebrated his birthday at Pump it Up with some of his school and scout friends.  He wanted a video game themed party. I partly feel bad because there wasn’t really much about it that was geared towards video games besides the Super MarioContinue reading “Party Time:  Eight is Great”

Shotgun Show-off

Let me start by saying that I would never have really imagined that I would EVER own a gun of any kind. I have never felt drawn to hunting as a sport and I really don’t feel the need to carry a concealed weapon. Most of this is because the few times I’ve shot I’veContinue reading “Shotgun Show-off”

Twin Tips: How to Include Older Siblings

Will and Anna were 7 and 4 respectively when we had Clara and Kate. I read quite a bit about preparing older kids for new siblings but there wasn’t much out there about preparing them for welcoming two (or more) to the family.  I should start off with the disclaimer that I am not a childContinue reading “Twin Tips: How to Include Older Siblings”

They have a crew  of photographers and make sure the kids are posed cute.  I never got around to posting these and thought I’d share. I think they turned out great. It may be just me, but I think theContinue reading “Photo Friday: Spring School Photos”
