Sweet Sunday: Anna’s Got Cookies

Anna has her cookies and has been selling them all weekend. I’m a little partial but I think she’s the cutest Daisy ever. I mean, really how could you say no to this face?!? We’ve really had such a fun time and got to enjoy a girls night together on Friday night since the boysContinue reading “Sweet Sunday: Anna’s Got Cookies”

Photo Friday: Fossil Rim

Garen took the bigs to Fossil Rim a few weeks back on his way back from Hamilton. Despite Will almost losing a thumb while feeding a very greedy Oestrich, they had a fantastic time. If you’ve never been to Fossil Rim in Glen Rose, it’s absolutely a Texas bucket list item! It was a greatContinue reading “Photo Friday: Fossil Rim”

Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies

A couple of weekends back, the kids helped me to make Christmas cookies. We had such a good time, even if my kitchen became a disaster zone and the control freak, perfectionist side of me struggled to let them decorate them however they wanted. Garen caught a few good photos of us in action. Yes,Continue reading “Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies”

Photo Friday: Will’s Spooktacular Costume Birthday Party

A few weeks ago we had Will’s VERY belated birthday party. His birthday is always the first week of school, meaning there’s really not enough time to invite any of his classmates besides the ones we already had addresses or parents’ phone numbers. As we got closer and closer to Halloween, we all settled onContinue reading “Photo Friday: Will’s Spooktacular Costume Birthday Party”

Photo Friday: Puddle Jumping

We were happy to be able to take all four kiddos to Pioneer Reunion (Clay County’s big yearly festivities). There’s multiple parades and a great rodeo as well. Boot fever struck our house as we got ready to head out there and realized only one of the twins would have a pair of boots. HeavenContinue reading “Photo Friday: Puddle Jumping”

Mommy Review Monday: Big Block Singsong

I can’t take credit for finding this group because Garen introduced this lovely group to me. If you’re like me, you quickly get tired of kids music. Enter Big Block Singsong. Pros: They will crack you up with their off-the-wall lyrics. This may be helpful if you’re ever in the car with everyone yelling atContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Big Block Singsong”

Photo Friday: But Wait, There’s More

Here’s a few more from our family vacation that Garen took. Like I said, we all had a great time.  The kids are leaving to go to their Joe Daddy’s today for a couple of weeks and, man, oh man, am I going to miss these smiling faces! Check out last week’s Photo Friday andContinue reading “Photo Friday: But Wait, There’s More”

Career Day 2017

The big kids had Career Day at school today.
