Since I’m watching my last baby reach milestones and grow way too quickly, I figured this would be a great choice of topic. Halloween is right around the corner (happy dance!). As I’ve mentioned, I LOVE the holidays and celebrations.
Part of the festivities = finding the right costume. We have chosen some doozies in the past few years and I can’t wait to wear the ones we picked this year. My kids get to help choose, but really don’t have much say in what our ensembles will be in the end. (more…)
I LOVE the holidays. Any kind, really. Any cause for celebration and I am all over that. Tie a ribbon around a pencil, I am done. Haha Not really, I’m terrible at tying ribbons but give me a gift bag and I will run wild. (more…)
“My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” ~ Clarence Budington Kelland
Being a father presents many challenges and many rewards, as well. Heck, being a parent is no easy task. You will be met head on at times. A battle of will can almost be counted on at least a handful of times throughout any given week. BUT the struggles get buried under the joys of seeing your influence create a wonderful human being (or a few wonderful human beings).
In our household, the fatherly role is played by someone who tends to have much more fun, spontaneous moments than mom. He brings the laughter; his split second decisions that prevent or stop a meltdown and move into happy memories make a difference. The ability to dissuade a situation does not get overlooked (at least not by me). (more…)

A mother’s love is simple. Therefore, simple things fill up our tanks, as well. (more…)
Whether you focus on the religious aspect or simply the family time together, Easter holds plenty of greatness. I personally teach my children a little bit about the religious side, but tend to lean heavily towards the activities we do together. (more…)
My little lady and I decided before we ran off to brother’s school party, we needed to do our own Valentine’s Day project. So that’s just what we did. I had been on the lookout for a fun, yet easy enough for her to do by herself art activity. After scouring both Facebook and Pinterest, I had finally found one I saved weeks prior to the big day.
When the day finally came, it seems I always underestimate how quickly a day can escape me. Between client work, chauffeuring my son to and from school, the added classroom party to attend, lunch to make, plus any household chores I choose to try to accomplish… oh, and the dogs, it all adds up. Plus, it was the big dog’s surgery day (this is best kept for a blog of its own another day). Therefore, the day went by much faster than anticipated. (more…)
