Wow, where has the time gone? I can’t believe my sweet little girl is 5 today. We are so blessed to have such an amazing little girl. She is so full of life and sass and she keeps me on my toes 24-7. She is so sweet and comes up with the funniest ideas and sayings. I enjoy watching her model her costumes (sometimes more than 5 costume changes a day) and play dress up.Read More

I am sooooo excited. I had a feeling it would take about 2 years to finish the plumbing (the back of the house is done, we still need to finish the kitchen) and I was right. I am so happy to have the drywall guy here that I can overlook the idea of having to clean up after him. There is drywall dust everywhere and I am living amongst a sea of plastic! All my furnitureRead More
I bought face paints about a year and a half ago and we have been having fun with them ever since. I paint my kids faces all the time. It is good practice and they love it. Some times we pick out designs from the internet. It has all gone well up until now. Delaney is turning into a pretty harsh critic. She picked out a butterfly pattern that she liked and I started. ItRead More

I had written on Facebook a month or so  ago (I was a little miffed that day) that I had not received a thank you from someone I had given a gift to. It got a big response and so I decided to vlog about it today. To thank you note or not thank you note. That is the question… Another day in my life.Read More

I finally got an iPad (thanks Ellen) and we have had so much fun with it. One thing I like to do is watch hair tutorials and try them on Delaney. She has gotten into watching them to and she actually asks if she can watch them. Our favorite YouTube channel is Cutegirlshairstyles . This mom has all kinds of cute styles to learn and she makes them all really easy. We go on theRead More

  Wow, I can’t believe it has been 7 years. I have had the privilege of being this little guy’s mom for the last 7 years! What a joy it has been. He is so funny and sweet. I am sitting here thinking back to the day he was born and how crazy it all was! I started having contractions on the 13th. It was Monday and I wasn’t due for 4 more weeks. IRead More

I have been taking a jewelry making class at Foothills Adult School. My friend Pam is the teacher and she has been telling me for years I need to take her class. Pam, why did I wait so long? I love it. I am having so much fun. I want to show you what I have been making and a little education on how it is done (not a tutorial because that would be tooRead More

Brookieo??? I think I have heard them called chocolate chip brownie with Oreo cakes but Brookieo is much more fun! I have also heard them called “slutty brownies” (because when you break up with your boyfriend you eat everything in sight and go all slutty-just repeating what I have been told) but I didn’t want to answer of any Delaney’s questions on that one. heh heh. These really are the easiest things in the world (IRead More

You know I work from home and that I have a couple of college girls that come over and help me with the kids, the house cleaning and the chores. I call them my “mother’s helpers”. I have been so blessed to have wonderful girls that work with me. They help me keep my sanity so that when I am not working I can be the best mom I can be. Once in a whileRead More

Kirkland baby wipes clean dirt better than Clorox!

Sorry Clorox, it is the truth. I tried your wipes to clean the white rubber on my kid shoes and it didn’t do much. The Kirkland ones got the rubber so white! This kind of scares me because what is it doing to my kids skin when I wipe their faces? I just can’t think about that right now. The shoes tell the story. Do you see how much cleaner the shoe on the leftRead More
