Merikurisumasu from our family to yours. Enjoy celebrating, relaxing, and laughing these holidays.
Our sweet daughter, Cora, turned two today! It’s wonderful and a bittersweet at the same time. She’s brought such joy, love and laughter to our lives. I’m so grateful to be her mother. Cora is so much fun to take on walks with her brothers and her dog, she points out bugs, flowers, and finds … More Cora Turns Two-Years-Old

Perhaps Monday was perfect today because my family and I got to spend Saturday and part of Sunday with my … More Enjoying Monday

My husband was out of town, which … More Rockin’ the Grocery Store

Simply; I’m trying my best, but realize I’m not perfect. I do have qualms with baby … More Burning the house down…
This poor neglected blog has been left unattended for weeks now. I blame the neglect on two birthdays in our family and on Lent. Parties particularly for children take a lot of work. Especially when your child’s preschool will not hand out invitations, regardless if you invited the entire class. Our youngest son had quite … More Greek Yogurt, Popcorn Bacon and Green Peas
