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 […]

Dinner party diaries – The Annual Christmas Party

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 […]

I can copy like no nobody’s […]

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 […]

The Oven Union

It seems like during the month of November and December my oven is in constant use. I’m glad there isn’t an oven union out there because mine would probably be complaining of abuse! If it had legs, I’m sure it would be marching right out of our house to the nearest picket line, in search […]

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 […]

A Food and Wine Challenge

Food and Wine magazine always seems to come at the perfect time of the month for me. We were all loading into the car to make the 6 hour trek to the in-laws house in Iowa when I decided to run and get the mail first. When I opened up the mailbox and saw the […]
