Photo Friday: Willy P, Basketball Star

Will started playing basketball. He’s having a blast. He’s got a great coach and assistant coach and I think he enjoys playing with his teammates even though none of them go to his school. We signed up through the YMCA and I have to say that I’m been pretty impressed with the organization and howContinue reading “Photo Friday: Willy P, Basketball Star”

Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust

I love blueberries….any way you fix them. Growing up, my Grammy made a lot of blueberry muffins, blueberry cobblers, and, occasionally, a blueberry pie. For quite a few summers in a row, one of my Uncle Mo’s good friends provided a steady supply of fresh blueberries.  Grammy always froze them and we had (almost) freshContinue reading “Blueberry Crumble Pie with Shortbread Crust”

Photo Friday: Family Cruise Vacation 2018 Highlights

As I write this today, I’m recovering (and doing loads and loads of laundry) from our family vacation.  It was fantastic and exhausting.  We started out last Friday roadtripping down to Galveston with the littles (stay tuned for a post on road trips with toddlers), followed by an afternoon at Schlitterbahn in Galveston.  Saturday, weContinue reading “Photo Friday: Family Cruise Vacation 2018 Highlights”

Photo Friday: A girl and her doll

We got Anna her first American Doll for her birthday. She loves it. Garen got this photo of us “doing hair.” I love it. So real. So special. Here’s another great one that Garen took. Happy Photo Friday!

Mommy Review Monday: Care.com for Finding Childcare

I have excellent babysitters/nannies that help us out.  And, with four kids and both of us traveling for work, boy, do we need it?!?  When I tell people that we have great sitters they typically ask me how I found them.  It’s hard to find good help from word-of-mouth.  If you hear about someone who’sContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Care.com for Finding Childcare”

Mommy Review Monday: Stride Rite made2play® Phibian Sneaker Sandal

Are your kids hard on play shoes? Mine are. That was really a stupid question. What kid isn’t hard on shoes??? We go through a lot in our house. Fast. I had been watching Facebook ads for Stride Rite made2play® Phibian Sneaker Sandal for a while but, being the semi-tightwad that I am, I wasn’tContinue reading “Mommy Review Monday: Stride Rite made2play® Phibian Sneaker Sandal”

Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day

A few weeks ago Anna and I enjoyed a day just one on one. We got our nails and toenails done- both in red. Then, after her beauty sleep, I took her to get her hair done. I felt like the coolest Mom ever (even though I know lots of other moms do this onContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day”

Photo Friday: New Lens, New Year

One of Garen’s new toys was is a new artistic lens.  So, I’m really just the lady behind the man with the camera so all I can do is be supportive… and buy him cool stuff. He got some great shots playing with it.  Here’s a few to share for Photo Friday. Enjoy your weekend!

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”
