Right after Thanksgiving my oldest boy turned 16! Wow. It’s so hard to believe that he will be graduating from high school and heading to college in the next two years!! He is my sweet, wonderful guy; so funny, so charming…but he can also be a huge grump-like all teenagers, I guess! I have a […]
Here’s a peek at our Halloween: I hope everyone had a happy October!!!
This weekend we went to a local pumpkin farm with a corn maze. I had never been to one of these before, but it ended up being quite fun! The big boys didn’t make it-their social calendars were too full that day-but we went with the littles and some wonderful friends and Grandma. It was […]
In my little family, back-to-school time coincides with the beginning of “Birthday Season” for us. First off, we begin with Mae on August 16. She turned 8 this year!!! She asked for Cinnabons instead of cake for her birthday; she is as smart as she is beautiful! We also took a little trip to Chuck […]

Then, when the sun started going down, we headed up the road to this small town that has a fireworks show every year. We parked on the roadside, lit a citronella candle and waited for […]
Today we went to a local pizza shop in town, had some great food and took a walk around town together as a family. It was so much fun to be together! And we saw some little kitties that came out and visited with us..they were so cute and friendly!! Here are some photos of […]
I have to be honest and say that Washington D.C. is not anywhere I actually ever dreamed of going to. Now with that being said, I am so very happy we went. It is a beautiful city, the landmarks and memorials are amazing, and it’s extremely family friendly!! I know everyone has seen pictures of […]
My daughter is a fabulous little artist!! She had a talent show at school and she made quite a collection…she had a painting, a cat statue, a poem and a paper doll. She’s pretty prolific for a seven year old and mama couldn’t be more proud of her!!
