I was so excited to spend Christmas with my family!
I knew the boys would be excited to see their cousins
On Christmas Eve we attended a candelight service at our home church.
Then we went and had some Philly Cheesesteaks where Samuel got into Grandma’s lipstick!
My cousin Nicole brought alligator for any brave soul willing to try it…Brian never turns down a meal:
We made it home before … Keep Reading!!!
December 17th Samuel turned FIVE!
I can’t believe it!
We had a party at my parents’ house!
My grandma came because she never misses a hot party.
My niece came because Samuel LOVES her (She’s 5’11” and looks like a supermodel, I can’t really blame him)
and all of his boy cousins showed up.
Even my cousin Whitney and her husband Bryan showed up with their adorable daughter Declyn! Whitney knitted him an adorable hat for his birthday in his … Keep Reading!!!
I have a pair of underwear from the 7th grade. I still wear them regularly. They are half camouflage, half red, with multiple holes, and all the elastic is stretched out so I need to role them. On top of that, Brian complains that I not only have them in my possession, but wear them regularly.
I just can’t seem to get rid of the darn things…I’ve even packed them for the trip I’m currently on.… Keep Reading!!!

She then called Target’s corporate customer service number and was told by a representative, and then her supervisor that … Keep Reading!!!
1. I am the mother to a happy, healthy, breastfeeding 4-year-old girl,
Arianna. We stayed home together for the first three years. She is nowattending a Montessori preschool. We exclusively breastfed for… I don’t know how long anymore! I know I tried introducing solids at six months and she wanted nothing to do with it. By ten months she loved
eating beans and blueberries. I am patiently (and not-so-patiently on
some days!) waiting for her to be ready … Keep Reading!!!
I think Santa is a lot of fun….so do my kids.
We all know he isn’t real.
I’ve come to learn there are different Santa familes:
Family 1: Hardcore Santa-ers. Go big or go home. I even think the adults may believe in him.
Family 2: The Anti-Santa-ers. The jolly rosie-cheeked man is about as accepted in this house as a burglar.
Family 3: Some may say lukewarm Santa-ers? Keeping with the secular tradition of Santa with the children fully … Keep Reading!!!
