Silhouettes

Everywhere I look lately I see these beautiful silhouettes.  They are not like the ones I had done in Disneyland in 1981!  I have been so taken with them that I am in the process of doing one for each of my children.  So hold your breath for that post!  I wanted to share some little lovelies that I found on Etsy for your viewing and purchasing pleasure….   Beautiful prints and cards from Le Papier Designs.     Journal from …

A Wonderful Month Part II

  OK, on with the multipy posts about our Month of December.  You would be so lucky to have it end on Part II.  Be prepared for sequels like Rocky!   My  dad with almost all of the Grandkids.  Benjamin and Grandpa Jerry   Me and the kiddos. A tradition that we love doing with the children is to go ice skating around Christmas.  The last couple of years we have taken them to different outdoor rinks, but this year because …

A Wonderful Month Part I

I have never had any posts that had to be divided into parts!  There were so many wonderful things that we did this month and I just didn't have time to blog about them.  I am playing a little catch up.  First of all, I hope each of you had a precious time with your friends and family and a sweet Christmas.  We always spend lots of days in December making gifts for our friends and family.  My daughter had …

Everybody Cut Footloose

I had been wanting to watch Footloose very badly lately.  Don't ask me why or judge my movie viewing choices.  Maybe I was longing for 1984?  All I can say is that when we finally watched it I laughed a lot more than I did in 1984!  Maybe my head was cloudy from all the Aqua Net I was daily inhaling.  Maybe the blue eyeshadow was seeping into my brain.  If you want to feel really old…this movie came out 24 YEARS …

The House is Clean (kind of)

Many of you have emailed me to show pictures of the rest of our home.  The house is usually not clean enough for pictures, so this is all you are getting:-) My eight year old's room is completely off limits!  I hope you are all enjoying getting your home ready for Christmas.  We are excited to have my mom and dad coming for Christmas.  We have kept things pretty simple this year, but we always love the glow of the …

Life Is Not Too Shabby

First of all I would like to say that I am so excited to be in a photograph with my children.  If you are a mom of kids you know what I am talking about.  There are thousands of photos of my children with my husband…I am usually the one behind the camera.  I was so happy when my husband grabbed the camera and took these pictures.  It would have been nice if I had MAKEUP on!!!!  Oh, well…I will …

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

We have had such a great time beginning to decorate the house.  The children can barely contain themselves as we get all the boxes out.  I was just the same.  As soon as the Thanksgiving meal was being cleared from the table I was off looking for all the Christmas decorations.  The truth has to be told….I was the decorating Nazi.  Yes, I took joy away from others because the tree had to be decorated perfectly.  I believe my brother …
