In a way you could say we’ve always home schooled our kids. From birth we teach them how to eat, sleep, walk, talk, run, jump, play, and then the real fun begins. You realize that all along they’ve been teaching themselves. When we put our oldest in Kindergarten, we had become convinced that it was […]
Neighbors?!? fireworks woke us up at midnight. We thought the kids fell out of bed. All clear.
Before that we played on the internet, snacked on a pint of Ben and Jerry’s (Karamel Sutra), and watched Dr. Who. My husband fell asleep before 10. I finally shook him awake off the couch and got him into […]
‘Daddy I love you’…. as I melt, she adds ‘want to know why I love you?’…. ‘your computer is lighting up’….
Our middle child is so sweet. She was a happy, happy, happy baby. I mean. Happy. All of my friends said ‘if I’d had one like her, I’d have had 10 more’… for the most […]
The kids always put their all into the Christmas program at church. This year thankfully there were no angel halos shredding silver tinsel all over the carpet. No ties around heads or rope sashes for shepherds and crowns covered in foil for the wise men. The kids just sang. It was epically bad and beautiful […]
Who is the happiest person you know? What is their secret?

You know it’s too bad that we didn’t take any candid pictures today… but we did manage to spread a little joy. One of our church friends uses her business every year as a front to ‘fill a vehicle’ to distribute to local organizations that need help. One of them is the food pantry that’s […]

I’ve you’ve been reading here long enough, you know my favorite artist. If you haven’t. Well…
If you just said Garth who.. either you’re very young, which I can forgive, or you might just need t0 move along.
Really, though. Garth Brooks came on the country music […]
Who do you like to be with when you’re feeling sad?
This is a tough question. In some cases, hugging my kids or getting a laugh out of my husband is pretty good. In other ways, it might be a family get together that really helps, though they’re few and far between. It’s really great when […]
Today’s Topic: What food always makes you feel happy while you’re eating it?
Wow. I mean who doesn’t love chocolate (unless they’re allergic)… but I don’t know.. pizza. I love pizza.
Plus, anything my mom makes? Gotta love that. Especially if she brings it to us. She’s got a penchant for bringing us jam. Yum!
Ham that’s been […]
Today’s topic is: Talk about a surprise that made you happy.
After 2 girls, and a really difficult, frustrating, and obviously different pregnancy, I was positive my third child was going to be a boy. How could it not? Well, here’s how!
