Happy Earth Day Earthlings!

Asher told me that he’d like to spend this year’s Earth Day at a park picking up and recycling trash.  I’m not exactly sure how to go about searching for a dirty park, so we may just settle for playing at a clean one. Either way, I wanted to leave you guys with some pretty…

Heart Full of Wine

I meant to post this yesterday and although it’s late and dated, I’m not going to let these marvelous photos go to waste. As planned, we all spent a nice quiet V-day at home together. However, after a botched calzone making attempt on Saturday night I decided to use what we had rather than ordering…

Valentine’s Day

I don’t remember what we did on Valentine’s Day before we had kids, although, given my love for pajamas, I’m fairly certain that it did not involve candlelit dinners in white table-clothed restaurants. We have always been the “staying in” type of couple so I can’t imagine us doing anything more exotic than what we…

Freeze Frame

Our Christmas was perfect. Hope yours was too!!!

We Wish You A Merry Christmas

If you didn’t received this adorable card in the mail that means I lost your address in one of our moves. Please e-mail me your address so I can send off the extra cards I have laying around. (It makes me sad to think I have more cards than friends.) I promise to add you…

Christmas All Over Again

Well, we are currently in the throws of my least favorite of the Ogden holiday traditions. The holiday sickness. I use the term holiday because the sickness can (and will) strike one of us either Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year’s. I thought we’d dodged it this year. We pulled through Thanksgiving without any incident and…

O, Christmas Tree

Another thing that’s big around our house at Christmastime is the tree decorating. In addition to the real tree we put in the living room, we also have two other fake trees that go up in the kids rooms. The living room tree is annoying to me. I want a Martha Stewart looking, color coordinated…

Tradition

The holidays don’t start around our house until I’ve made the first batch of my favorite Christmas treat. This is one of the things I remember about spending Christmas with my mother. So we always have a warm batch to munch on while decorating the tree. I make it in the oven, old school style,…

The Happiest Christmas Tree

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ours was filled with good friends, great food, and a lot of late night laughter. It was nice to have our very first set of holiday guests. Plus, I always prefer to have the food filled holidays at home; that way I get to eat all the leftovers!…
