Uh-Oh…Time to Get the Gate UP!

Baby boy learned how to crawl up stairs today!! I was sitting on the floor and knew he was there, but didn’t realize he was 2 stairs up getting a bag of plastic Easter eggs. I took him down, and of course, up he went again. And giggled at me. “Hah, mom! Look what I can do!” Oh, and now ds1 is calling him...

Easter Week in Our Home.

A few years ago, my mom sent me an Easter book. It has 7 days worth of scriptures, each day a day in Christ’s last week. So it’s like we’re walking in his footsteps for a week. Then for every day, it has activities, games, or service projects. It’s really neat. I think this will be our 4th year. On a few days (like...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Here’s a few VDay jokes for ya!! A smart, handsome and sexy young man dressed in the most sophisticated manner walked into the bar. He noticed a woman staring at him without blinking her eyes with an open mouth. Flattered, he approached the woman and said in his sexiest deep voice – “I’ll do anything you wish, beautiful lady, for just $20 but on...

Did I Offend You???

If I cut you off in traffic, I’m sorry. If you waved at me and I didn’t see it, I’m sorry. If I didn’t comment on your blog enough, I’m sorry. If I didn’t reply to your comment here, I’m sorry. If I gave you a dirty look while I was in a bad mood, I’m sorry. If I got the last of an...

Teeth & Valentine’s Day.

Yeah, odd combination of words, I know. But it’s 2 topics. I couldn’t pick just one. Our baby cut his first tooth yesterday! We were anxiously awaiting this milestone…he’s been a slow teether. The other bottom front one should arrive soon 😀 Now for V-Day. I’m crossing my fingers for this one…every other occasion this year (dd’s bday, my bday, our anniversary) has been...

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 foods (chips and dip, crackers and cheese, fruit and...

Doggie Update

My dd and a friend are doing an AEP (advanced enrichment program) project together this year for school…their subject is the local animal shelter/pound. So today the girl and her mom and dd and I went to the shelter to get information and statistics. While we were there, I told the lady we were interviewing about the dog we picked up and asked for...

What I Want for Christmas…

I’d like the kitten to stop climbing the tree and knocking off lights and ornaments. I’d like to get the new water heater and boiler out of my kitchen. I’d like to sit for 30 minutes and paint ornaments without interruption. I’d like to put the presents under the tree without worrying about the kitten and dog making chew toys out of them. I’d...

Cookie Week!

This is officially Cookie Week in our house. The week before Christmas when we make tons of cookies!  Yesterday we started with pecan snowballs and chocolate crinkles. Tomorrow we’ll be doing sugar cookies and gingerbread men. I have a wicked awesome recipe for the gingerbread; they’re probably my favorite. Friday is Girl’s Night. The woman hosting this month is having a cookie swap. She...
