Disneyworld Part 1: Disney Hollywood Studios

February 25, 2011

I’m excited to blog about our great trip to Florida this month! And frankly I’m a bit in shock that I’ve actually started the process. I’ll be breaking up the trip into a series of posts, just so I don’t have 1000 pictures in one gigantor post. Also I won’t be blogging a day-by-day report, […]

Annie’s Nutcracker Weekend

December 7, 2010

Last weekend Annie’s dance studio put on their annual Children’s Nutcracker performance. It’s a crazy whirlwind of rehearsals and several performances but in the end Annie and her friends had a blast together and did a fabulous job–it was worth it. While I loved Annie as a Peppermint Stick last year, she had lots of […]

Pumpkin Patch

October 18, 2010

We had a pretty laid-back long weekend, with the kids home from school for Fall Break. It was a beautiful, warm weekend–the kind of weather that makes October one of my favorite months of the year. We took a little trip to a local pumpkin patch to stock up on our pumpkins to carve and […]

July 27, 2009

Admittedly, I am NOT a green thumb. I can manage to keep 3 children and a husband and myself alive, but alas, I cannot maintain the life of a simple houseplant. But this year I was determined to have a small vegetable garden–it is our very first family garden as this is the first house […]

Annie’s Pinkalicious Party

March 16, 2009

Now that we are FINALLY feeling better at our house, I’m going to try to get more caught-up on blogging. So today we are going WAY back to November 2008, when Annie turned 3! I asked her what kind of party she wanted to have, and she just said, “pink.” So we decided to have […]

Our Valentine Weekend ’09

February 19, 2009

We had a fun Valentine weekend. It’s like a bright spot right in between Christmas and Easter, something fun to look forward to. It all started earlier in the week….. I was sitting on the couch feeding Haylie when I noticed Brandon sort of hiding and working on something secretively behind the counter. I asked […]

The Super Birthday Post

March 31, 2008

I’ve finally gone through the pictures from Brandon’s birthday celebrations–quite a task! I’ve narrowed it down but this is still a long picture-y post. I mean LONG. Super Hero Training Camp I clearly must’ve had a brain lapse when I decided to do this huge party. 3 weeks before delivery. But it was fun and […]

Happy Birthday, Brandon!

March 19, 2008

Today my boy is five years old! I am amazed at how quickly 5 years has gone by and the joy Brandon has brought to our family. We love him so much. I had wanted to post pictures from his birth all the way up to now, but since the move I don’t know where […]
