valentine’s 2012

Tomorrow is the big day. Max finished up his valentines for his class today. Rockin’, right? Last year, I drew each one and he colored them. This year, I drew one, scanned it, and then printed them out so he could color them. I’m so glad my kiddos are learning how to show love [...]

Castle blocks might be the best invention ever. I wish I had the audio of this play time so you could hear what the tigers and trains say to [...]

preschool rules

I put this little “Preschool Rules” poster together for the preschool group I’m participating with this year.

Just three rules. Be kind. Be safe. Be clean.

I think that just about covers it, don’t you?

There is a clip for each kiddo. They start on green. If a child breaks a rule, I will give him a warning and [...]

my favorite: play dough recipe

The kiddos had a lot of fun squishing play dough with their cousins last week. I use my mom’s recipe (thanks, Mom!) every time. Beats the store-bought kind by a mile and it super quick and easy to make. I usually half the recipe and make 3-4 colors one right after the other. Give it a [...]

I’m feeling like summer has just whizzed by. It’s August. School starts soon.

To help me deal with it, I made brownies. And added chocolate [...]

What’s not to love about that face? It’s crazy to think he is almost one. Wasn’t he just born?! This time last year, Chris and I were putting together our bedroom. And now we don’t even live in that house [...]

small talk: week 10

Time to make small talk. It’s week 10. Click here to download.


This photo is a good representation of my kiddos. Max is blurry because he won’t hold still for two seconds. Cooper wants to be as close to Owen as possible all the time. Owen feels like such a big kid sitting [...]

small talk: week 9

Week 9 small talk. Enjoy.

This is a snapshot of a typical Saturday for us. We bum around the house alternating between video games and outside chores and usually a trip to our neighborhood pool. It’s a good life.

We are moving soon. I’m going to miss this house and all our friends here.


New [...]
