Matchy Matchy

Every Christmas I buy matching pajamas for the whole family. Elijah has been such a great sport about this, wearing his jammies with pride, not just on Christmas, but throughout the year. This year, we did a Disney theme in the hopes that it would inspire us to finally take our family Disney World trip!…

Making Christmas

It’s been almost a week since my last post and I apologize for my neglect. We’ve been so busy “Making Christmas” I just haven’t been able to make time to write. I am hoping to be able to post little things during the next few weeks but am making no promises. I still haven’t finished…

Santa’s Going To Need Sudafed

All the little reindeer in my house are sick and so am I. This means that no one is getting adequately cared for and (more importantly) I’ve not been able to lay around the house feeling sorry for myself. Elijah has been a trooper though, he’s the only one who isn’t sick and he’s pretty…

All I Want For Christmas Is…

I’m back again with Monday Listicles! It took me a while to get this up because I’ve been sleeping all day, but you still have time to make my Christmas wishes come true. 1. The perfect pair of brown leather boots. 2. A clean bathroom. 3. A ginormous TV over the mantle so I can…

I’m Thankful for iPhones

Without them, we wouldn’t have great pictures of the year our turkey was too big for the roaster and had to be secured with duct tape! Hope you all have a safe and happy Thanksgiving! Linking this up with those wild and crazy  iPhone Photo Phun gals:  

Boo!

We had a wonderful Halloween! We went to a family Halloween party on Sunday and then, Monday, took the kids trick-or-treating with friends. I’ve sorted the haul and it looks like I’ll be adding another few pounds to my waistline this winter. But I’m willing to sacrifice my figure in order to keep our dental…

Mother’s Day Recap

I had a wonderful Mother’s Day. Instead of gifts Elijah did all my chores for this week (my birthday week!) so I don’t have laundry, cleaning or grocery shopping to do. It was the perfect week long gift. We spent a quiet day at home. I had worked the night before so Elijah woke up…

A Mother’s Day Gift to Myself

I was recently introduced to an amazing website, The Shape of a Mother. The site collects photos and stories of women during pregnancy and after childbirth. Real photos, real women. Stretch marks and saggy breasts abound. It was a wake-up call for me as I’m pretty resentful of my post baby body. I’m not one…

Hoppy Birthday Baby!

We celebrated Amelia’s 2nd birthday over Easter Weekend. Her grandparents were coming down for the party so we decided it’d be more fun to have them over for the egg-citing festivities as well as her birthday celebration. We grilled brats, beat on a pinata and had some ice cream cake (the staple of birthday parties…

Thank You Easter Bunny!

Remember that commercial? In case you don’t, I’ve linked it. Wasn’t it super awesome?! [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m3eJxZEai0] After the egg hunt, I spent far too long trying to get my kids to stand with their baskets and say “Thank You Easter Bunny!” They totally didn’t get it. They had no frame of reference for my request….
