    Some of my favorite memories of all time were spent at my Grami's house.  Grami knew how to make us feel loved and welcomed and I always felt like she was so glad that I came.  We had a ritual in the summer time:  We would go to Grami'...

  • bath time.
    on Jan 23, 2014
     You would think having 2 babies  - 4 years and 10 months apart, that they wouldn't really enjoy each others company.  Not these two.  They love each other and bath time together.  I would freeze them at this age if I could,...
  • Cleanse

  • keeping the cheer tradition alive.
    on Jan 14, 2014
    It's hard to believe my oldest is in the 8th grade cheering for the 3rd year in a row and just plain growing up.   Taylor is such a hard worker in everything she does and I couldn't be prouder of all of her accomplishments. One awesome part...

    on Jan 8, 2014
    Kate is our reader.  This girl seriously LOVES to read.  Right now she is into Harry Potter, kind of obsessively into Harry Potter. It's quite adorable if you ask me.  Her last obsession was the American Girl Series, and before that it...

    on Jan 6, 2014
    I know... it's January 6th and I'm a little late in the game.  Here is what we are filling out for Family Night tonight.  It's a mix of goals and memories, and something for us to hold on to and look back on.  I think I will attach a C...

    Yeah, I've missed more then I can possibly begin to explain on this blog, so why try?  I've had another baby, and I've had a rough couple years, and a great couple of years.  I think that sums most of it up!  Here is last years Christm...
