The World Ain’t Slowin’ Down

Asher started 3rd Grade yesterday. We all survived…barely. I’ve never been the type of mother to worry over her kids growing older. The more independent they become, the more joy I get from parenting. I love watching them grow, seeing who these little people are becoming. However, this year, preparing for Asher to begin 3rd…

My Girl Likes To…

…potty all the time! These photos have not been altered. It is in fact, our little ladybug, sitting on actual toilets, sans screaming. It only took three days and a bag of jelly beans to get this girl out of her diapers. I’m hoping this, combined with her love of Tramp Stamps, isn’t going to…

Baby’s Got Sauce

Elijah has more refined taste in music than I. He enjoys listening to actual musicians, while I’ll take almost anything a big label throws at me. Because of this, we don’t always agree on what we should listen to together. However, almost thirteen years ago, we found some common ground when Elijah introduced me to…

Tramp Stamp

When you’re sweet little girl looks at you like this…  And asks for this… You give in. Then you swear you’ll never tell anyone about it. But you post it on your blog anyway…because OMG it’s hilarious! It’s Wednesday, so you know I’m linking up with iPPP!

Photo Op

Elijah’s birthday was this past Sunday. Instead of a family celebration I dropped the kids with friends so we could spend the day together, without all the screaming and stress, in and around Austin taking pictures. Other than some early morning grumbles (mine, not his) we had a lovely day. We spent the gloomy morning…

Still Hungry!

I just finished the time suck that is The Hunger Games Trilogy, and am now wondering what to read for the rest of my life. The books were a perfect Christmas gift from my SIL, but right now, I sort of hate her. Hate might be too strong of a word. I’m really just so…

The Best Kind of Dozen

Elijah and I celebrated 12 years of happily ever after, December 30, 2011. We don’t usually make a big deal of our anniversary. We rarely go out to celebrate, opting instead to grill out, open a bottle of wine and snuggle in front of a movie after putting the kids to bed. Often we don’t…

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…
