Is it really okay to eat Puppy Chow??

“Is it really okay to eat Puppy Chow?” This is a question my almost 5 year old son asks me anytime I make this delicious snack. He just can’t get over the fact that we are eating something named after dog food, and that looks like dog food too! I wish it bothered me more […]

Santa Clause is Watching You!

Jacob is almost 5, which seems to be the perfect age to really get into the whole Santa Clause thing. If you’ll remember back to our visit to sit on Santa’s lap, Kelly didn’t want to have anything to do with him but Jacob was perfectly happy to sit on his lap all day long, […]

Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Cookies

I am constantly making meals for people. Some people donate money, some people scour their house and pack up things to fling to Goodwill, some people volunteer their time, some people have charity auctions. I do those things as well, but what I find myself doing at least once on a weekly basis is cooking […]

Next time, we’re drinking!

My friend Angie came over yesterday to make our annual cookie plates. Several people who make cookie and goodie trays for friends and neighbors during the holiday’s spread it out over the course of several days. Not Angie and I. We decided this year that we would knock it all out in one afternoon. Now, […]

It’s 2pm… Do You Know Where Your Gingerbread Man Is?

Rumor has it that Gingerbread Men are pretty sneaky. I remember back in Kindergarten making Gingerbread Men cookies during class, and while they were baking in the school oven, they somehow sneaked off, leaving little clues all over the school as to where they’ve been and what they were doing. They had no intention whatsoever […]

Great Friends, great food and a whole lot of fun… that completely sums up our dinner party last night. It was absolutely perfect. The evening started at 6:30pm. Our two oldest children were down the street with a babysitter. I took the chance on keeping the baby here, thinking she would go to bed early. […]

Sing…sing a song… sing it LOUD

Jacob’s preschool Christmas program was last night. What can I say? It was adorable, as are all little kids music programs. It was very short (25 minutes) and was all singing. Jacob was one of the three Kings. He got to walk in  after the rest of the class was on stage and made a […]

Party #2 – Golden Globes Girls Night Out

The e-vites for my January party just went out. It will be a ladies only, Golden Globe party on January 15th. I’ve always wanted to do some kind of party surrounding the Hollywood award shows, but I always seem to think about it after the fact and completely miss the boat. Not this year…I’m on […]

The Place Card Lineup

I’m going to preface this entry with this…Martha Stewart I am not. I am not a very crafty person. If I attempt a craft, I need step by step instructions, preferably with pictures, and then usually after reading through said instructions, I need to watch a video or something. I can copy like no nobody’s […]

Hugs are still cool

I’m having a weepy, emotional kind of day. (Yes, mom, it’s that time of the month). Jacob’s last day of preschool before the holiday break was today. It dawned on me that preschool is now officially half way over and we are that much closer to Kindergarten. Jacob’s ready for Kindergarten… I know he’ll love […]
