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”

Happy (Second) Birthday/Halloween!!!
Halloween is a big holiday in our household- it’s Clara and Kate’s birthday. Today they turn two. I sound like a broken record every single birthday for the kids but, man, how time flies! It seems like just yesterday that this was happening! Or this: And now, here we are: Two Two-Year-Olds. Double, Double Trouble.Continue reading “Happy (Second) Birthday/Halloween!!!”
(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom
Today’s prompt for (Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday is: Write about the woman who has had the greatest impact on your life. This didn’t take more than a few seconds for me to know exactly who I’d write about- my Mom. We’d both freely admit that we don’t always agree about everything- far from it.Continue reading “(Not so) Tall Tale Tuesday: What Makes a Great Mom”
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: Mom’s 60th
My sweet Momma is 60 today! I know, I know…she totally doesn’t look (or act) that old. Last Saturday night we managed to pull off a major surprise Fiesta for her. I’m still not quite sure how we did it without someone spoiling the surprise but somehow we did…and it was GREAT! Here’s a fewContinue reading “Photo Friday: Mom’s 60th”
Photo Friday: Kate, Kate
Heeeeere's Kate, Kate! Such a ham, this one. Happy Photo Friday!
As I started to write this in preparation for posting on Father’s Day, I saw this…. Looking at this screenshot, you might not even know what struck me as important. Share your story here… As I sat for a minute, pondering, I wondered how I’d never looked at that phraseContinue reading “Celebrating Dad”
