The Plague
thumbnail
Well, it happened. We got hit with the plague. We have been blessed beyond expectations all winter since all we'd caught was a runny nose and a little cough. Actually, I thought it worked out great. Don't you think that a big move and life change ought to be all the trials one needs in a year? I thought maybe that was enough to keep us healthy. Really, I am ...

Princess Party (4 years old)
thumbnail
Baby Girl originally wanted a birthday cake with Curious George and Boots on it, her two favorite monkeys on the same cake. When I went to the bakery's website to find sizes, prices, etc, she found a picture of a "princess" cake, and the other cake was forgotten. She wanted a princess party. We invited three families, which included six girls and three boys, all under the age of 7. My ...

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl!
thumbnail
Almost 2 weeks late, but still ...  the thought counts. Am I right? My Baby Girl turned 4! Four! I know every mother says it, but "where did the time go?" I love four! She's independent but still needs me. She's funny. She gets jokes. She makes up jokes (and retells them 800 times). She understands feelings and emotions. She loves big...hugs her friends, tells them she loves them, takes care ...

The 25 Days of Christmas
thumbnail
Last year I loved hearing about my friends' fun activities they did for the days leading up til Christmas. This year I wanted to do the same but I feel like we're still coming down from the adrenaline rush of moving across the country. I didn't plan specific things but decided I would do what I could when I could. For me that has worked best. Maybe next year I'll ...

What’s Happening
thumbnail
We've been under the sickness umbrella for a week now. One of the kids runs a fever, it goes away, the other one gets it, over and over and over. Thankfully, they're still pretty happy despite not feeling well. We've been raking up leaves...lots of leaves. We have a huge oak tree in our front yard, and the leaves here fall incredibly slow. We get a yard full if it's windy. ...

Weekend in Review
thumbnail
And now back to our regularly scheduled life.... Whew! What a week it's been! My in-laws arrived last Friday evening and we went non-stop for a week! We took our first trip to the zoo and got a year's membership. We're so excited about that! Baby Girl pulled out the map and told us exactly what she wanted to see and how to get there. When we got home, my man and I ...

Day in the Life, Fall ’12
thumbnail
It's that time again! I'm linking up to Laura's Day in the Life post. I just realized I didn't get any pictures of me throughout the day. Maybe the winter edition will include me! :) I chose Wednesday, October 17, but then halfway through the day I forgot to take pictures. :) So we tried again for Thursday, October 18th. 5:58- Buddy's up. He was only up once last night, and he ...

Weekend Away
thumbnail
Another special treat from my husband this fall: a weekend away by myself. We looked for cheaper flights and found that it was fairly reasonable to fly to Denver. My man's aunt owns a condo up in the mountains. We found that it was available, so we booked the ticket and off I went! The plane trip went uneventfully. As I went through security I realized that I haven't flown alone ...

Life

I've been so bad about keeping up with this blog lately. We've been busy. Life is happening. Truthfully, I'm happy about that. When we moved here the kids and I would go to Walmart or Target just so we had somewhere to go. Now we're actually making plans, meeting people, and getting out. Here's some of what's going on: * We've found a church! It's definitely not what we planned on ...

Where did the weekend go?
thumbnail
How is it Monday again already? The beginning of last week took FOREVER, but once Friday hit everything was a blur. * Sunday we entertained! I love entertaining, but we haven't done much of it lately. The company? Friends of mine from CT. I've known them since junior high, I think. They live about 45 minutes away (on the other side of the city) so this was the first we've seen ...
