This was a weird week, don’t you agree? With Fourth of July in the middle of the week, it was a bit fragmented. Happy Fourth, by the way:) My joys this week were: Monday – We were trying to get back into our routine, but it didn’t work quite the way I thought. Nonetheless, the […]

This week’s joy!

June 30, 2012

This week has been crazy-busy! My brother and his family flew in from Phoenix, AZ for a visit. It was great to see them. My nieces are just the cutest things! Especially the 2yo. She is a hoot! Really friendly and not afraid of any situation. I don’t think I saw her get shy once […]

Funny things my kids said or did today…

October 8, 2011

I wanted to chronicle some of the strange things kids say and do. Hopefully you get a laugh out of them too! I was informed today by my 9y.o. that when you scratch your armpit it is kind of like picking a horse’s nose because “it is a big crevice.” I’m sure a horse’s nose […]

Whoohoo look at me!

April 21, 2011

I’ve posted two days in a row – miracles never cease! Today I am struck by how wonderful childhood is. Isn’t it a shame how society wants them to grow up too fast! Society wants them to be self-sufficient before they can even spell the words! In the background as I type this, my two […]

We’ve been having our basement worked on for a few weeks now. In the midst of that, we caught the stomach bug and inadvertently gave it to the 2 contractors working on our basement. The third contractor wasn’t here for that mess, he was home caring for his 5 children while his wife was away […]

A wonderful Mom’s Day Away

April 3, 2011

I had the most wonderful “mom’s day away” with some fellow Catholic moms! Faith and Family magazine brought speakers to a nearby parish and all I can say is “wow!” I had never heard of any of these women, but they are bloggers associated with the Faith and Family website. They were amazing! Danielle Bean […]
