Disney World: A magical place

We got back from Disney world this past Sunday.  We spent 8 full days in the parks.  I feel blessed we got to be there, I feel lucky that my parents and Auntie Heidi were with us.  Family makes it all the more magical. We went during spring break, a key no no if you…

A needed break

I have a quiet house right now.  Maddy decided to put herself down for a nap, and she seems to have really fallen asleep, it is needed.   Tonight will be a night to go watch her big brother so any rest will do her good. This past month has flown by.  We have been…

Some day…

Years ago I did a post titled something about Some days, you can find it here.  Looking back on this post, I am glad I have those moments captured here.  I haven’t written in this space in a couple weeks.  I haven’t felt it when I have actually had the time.  It isn’t to say…

Creating a household binder

It is no secret I love to organize.  I always have “to do” lists. I had seen several household binders around the web, gotta love pinterest for finding ideas.  So I took some great suggestions from some of them, like I heart Organizing and then went my own way. I wanted to keep it inexpensive,…

Life Lately…Keeping it real

Last week Hayden uttered words no parent wants to hear “I hate school.”    He didn’t say it out of the blue, he said it in the midst of homework.  We have worked with him on his frustration with school since then and formulated another game plan but still those words linger in my mind…

Valentine’s Heart Garland

We have been spending a lot of time indoors thanks to the lovely cold/cough/fever that is making the rounds around our house.  Currently Maddy and I seem to be battling with it. Maddy and I created this valentine’s heart garland a couple week’s ago, I have to say I like how it turned out.  I…

Little tid bits

   Tildy had her birthday last week, her very first birthday with us.  She was loved on all day.  We now have dogs that are as old as each of our kids, not planned, but funny nonetheless. ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………   I got the dogs a new bed  for the kitchen.  Black and white polka dots make…

The most magical time of the year

I have realized I take a lot of pictures of the critters that abound when we are with family.  What can I say I am an animal lover. There is something magical about being home with family during Christmas isn’t there.  Actually anytime of year I call my parent’s home a magical place. We spent…

Santa Time

Christmas time has passed.  It’s been long since over but I find it hard to sometimes get back into the swing of things.   We were with family over the holidays and I was amazed at how fast the time went.  Don’t get me wrong it usually goes fast, but this year I just felt…

Gearing up for Christmas – Our traditions.

Hayden and Maddy are beyond excited these days.  I find I am excited to see their faces when they open their gifts.  Watching kid’s eye’s light up is the best, isn’t it?  This was St. Nick morning, in the beginning of December.  That’s when we do stockings with all the fun little things. Maddy looking…
