Breaking Bread

I just wanted to pop on here tonight to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I wish you a wonderful day. It amazes me now that I am a parent how exciting it is to see Christmas through the eyes of my children. I hope that as you celebrated […]

A Rare Moment of Quiet

I’m home alone. Well, almost alone. Ella is upstairs asleep in her bed and I pretty much have the house to myself. It’s quiet… almost too quiet, but I’m  not complaining. Ella went back to the doctor this afternoon after running a fever of 103+ for 4 days straight. It turns out that she now […]

Just “Deglegate” it.

Kids are so funny sometimes, aren’t they? Today we were in the car and we passed a house that was being built. There was a man standing on the roof of the house. Jacob said “I’m never going to stand on the roof of a house. Even when I’m an engineer, I won’t do it. […]

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, […]

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

Rumor has it that Gingerbread Men are pretty sneaky.

They had no intention whatsoever […]

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 […]

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 […]

Somebody please smack me!

I’m looking for some help from all of you. The next time you hear me talking about maybe having another child, please sit me down, smack me a few times, and remind me of this day. Today has been one of those days… you know… one of those day’s where you hope that no one […]
