{happy 12th birthday, Ryann!!}

This week was a big week for our oldest girl!  She turned 12 on Sunday, July 13th.  It’s hard to believe that we’ve already reached this point.  She had an absolutely wonderful birthday and was celebrated by friends and family.  It’s always nice to be able to give your children a birthday that they truly […]

{weekly recap ~ 6/29-7/5}

Do you ever have weeks that go by so quickly that the next week, you can barely remember what you did?  Well, that’s what last week was like for us.  But here are the highlights…..maybe this way I won’t completely forget the good stuff. Monday, the two littlest littles and I went to Mommy Playgroup at […]

{it’s called what, son???}

  As a parent, there are conversations you have with your children that you know you’ll want to remember.  I had just such a conversation with Grant last week.

{noodle update – week 24}

Wow!  I can’t believe that we are 6 months into this pregnancy.  Before I know it I’ll be counting down the single digit weeks until Noodle arrives! Our little one is definitely active in there!  Kicking and punching away at Mommy all the time.  And it hasn’t been until very recently (possibly just in the past […]

{new beginnings…2014}

Just as I knew it would, the “holiday season” has completely flown by me at a speed that seems almost impossible.  Thanksgiving was amazing, Christmas was magical, and the looming New Year is filled with thoughts of what’s to come.  I’m quite certain that this year is going to be a special one for us […]

{raise those boys up right…}

I came across this blog post this morning and I was so glad that I read it!! It touched my mommy heart so profoundly….I just wanted to share. It takes a few minutes to read, but if you have the time it’s a few minutes that will bless you, too!  My favorite quote from the […]

{so here we are}

We are FINALLY halfway through our pregnancy!  Whoo-hoo!! I’m almost ashamed to admit that it has taken me almost 20 weeks to get back to the point of feeling “normal” again.  But hey….that’s pregnancy for ya! I also am extremely excited to report that for about a week and a half now I’ve been feeling […]
