What a Trip…no pun intended.

Yesterday we were walking out of our local pharmacy (me and the boys). It’s the kind of place where they know you by name, your kids, what’s going on in your life, etc. Very friendly and nice people. We walked out and went towards the post office.

I yelled out to Pierce, who was running […]

What Do You Consider Large?

A couple nights ago dh and I were discussing our trip this summer. I had been doing hotel research and noticed that many hotels’ prices were for 2 adults, 2 kids. Any more was extra.

We were saying we’re gonna have to get used to that kind of stuff, since we’re planning on having 4 […]

It’s Called “Mommy Brain.”

First it’s called “pregnancy brain”…the cells in the brain actually shrink a bit. Then that goes away and the brain is devoted to what’s in the diaper bag….plenty of diapers, wipes, burpy cloths, bib, toys, formula adequate for enough feedings plus an extra just in case, bottles, water, tylenol, gas drops, tissues enough for […]

I’d Swear I Have the Weirdest Dreams!!

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had the strangest dreams.

One recurring dream I had as a kid was in the house I grew up in. We had a very long drive way and were driving toward the house. We had a pond, and I decided I would walk from the pond to the […]

January First!

The first day of another new year. Love it 🙂

Last night we had friends over. They’re about our ages with 5 cute little kids (and she’s pg with the 6th) ages 8 to 2. It was not the quietest night we’ve had, but it was tons of fun. We had all the usual party […]

A New New Year!

I have to admit, 2008 has been good to us. We had a healthy baby boy, traded our 2 older cars for a new one and a newer-used one, and are now adding on to our home.

But I’m looking forward to 2009. It’s always fun for me to look forward to all the birthdays […]

My Clumsy Family.

I’m tellin’ ya….my family has got to be the most clumsy/klutzy one I know. One of us is constantly doing something ridiculous.

Poor Pierce…That kid just can’t seem to catch a break. Yesterday Dean had just fallen asleep on my lap when I heard a noise. I looked up and there was a little ball […]

Christmas is Next!

I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day and you enjoyed gorging! The 2 pecan pies I made got overcooked a big, so I certainly couldn’t serve them to all of the family (Paul’s side) that came. Dh doesn’t like pecan pies, so it’s up to me and dd to finish them off…oh, the horror […]

A Giving Idea.

I have 4 siblings. I have 11 nieces and nephews. If everyone bought for everyone, it would get pricey. So what our family does is have the kids swap names for gifts. But last night one of my sisters called me with a different idea.

She suggested we anonymously sponsor a poor family or two […]

Got the Tree Up!

So we were just sitting around last night right before kids’ bedtimes and dh pulled out his latest new toy, LCD Christmas tree lights. He plugged them in and they were BRIGHT! After teasing him for a few minutes, I told him he might as well get out our tree and put the lights on, […]
