Raising Service Oriented Kids – VolunteerSpot

Our family was walking towards the restaurant when my 9 year old sprinted ahead of me. I started to holler for him to slow down, but then I noticed why he was in such a rush. An elderly man was struggling to pull the heavy glass door open for his wife. My son quietly stepped […]

White Wedding Cake Buttercream Frosting

I had the grandest of plans for blogging the first week of the year. I had ideas running through my head, cool things to implement and fun stuff up my sleeve. You know what happened though? Life… yep. Good old life. For the first time in ages, I’ve actually felt like a stay at home […]

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 […]

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, […]

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. […]

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 […]

Mommy Brain

After searching and searching all morning for my camera, I just found my camera in the refrigerator and the cream cheese where I keep the camera, up by my desk. It’s official… I’m losing it! My friends call this “Mommy Brain” which is connected to losing brain cells after you have children. Sure… I’ll say […]

When I grow up…

The kids and I were out this afternoon at a local grocery store. We were happily going along doing our grocery shopping when Jacob all of a sudden noticed someone painting a new display on the front of the store windows. It really was fascinating to watch, but I didn’t realize we’d have to drop […]
