She said she’s wanted to try toting them both: They were all grinning!!

POTD- April 24, 2012

We’re continuing to make little changes to our home each week. This project, was painting Courtney’s closet doors.

Mouse Doors…

Tracy / October 12, 2011

Our latest obsession: These are the two Courtney and I are currently creating. I really have no idea what has sparked this interest…maybe the first mouse door? I don’t know. Whatever it is, this is just down-right fun!

Our Newest Sewing Projects….

Tracy / September 25, 2011

We’re always working on sewing/craft projects. Here are a couple we’ve finished lately: I painted this glow-in-the-dark shirt for Jon over the summer after finding inspiration in a children’s magazine. He has loved wearing it outside in the evenings, and I can spot him easily. 🙂 We’ve worked on several other projects, but this is the biggest. Courtney is making…

It seems so long since I’ve updated this site. Dial-up is another world when you are used to high-speed internet. I can’t tell you how difficult it is do accomplish simple tasks…things like banking, using the library or just checking store hours. Websites just aren’t being made to use dial-up anymore. If you are trying to blog, or use fb,…

Growing, Growing, Growing…

Tracy / August 31, 2011

These pictures were actually taken about a month ago, but since we’re trying to catch things up, I’m posting them now: Courtney, at this point, is a pro with babies! We also have help from another big sister. She’s always running to find a diaper or a blanket and has introduced the baby to all of her own babies.

Probably Not the Best Thing….

Tracy / August 30, 2011

but Courtney has learned to make donuts!! I have fond memories visiting my Aunt Judy and her family making donuts a couple of times. They were always yummy and best eaten hot. There is just nothing like a hot, fresh donut! Yummy!! Anyone want to stop by for a visit?? 😀

Meredith Turns 2!!

Pictures from Meredith’s birthday….. “Miss Two” celebrated with birthday cake and gifts! Courtney was very kind to make her cake…I’m still recovering from having baby and developed a pretty horrible case of mastitis last week, from which I’m also still recovering. 😛 I’m so glad she was willing to step in and “have fun”, in her words. She did such…

Workin’ the Deals!

Courtney has been organizing and working our grocery/drug store deals while I’m recovering from having the baby. I’m impressed!! She’s doing a great job (why did I not turn this over to her before now??), and better, she’s learning to make the most of a home budget. Good job, sweet girl!!

Life is Changing….

When did I think that life would slow down as my children aged? In many more ways, life has just become so much busier, and much more complicated. Having older children means their lives are also becoming more complicated. It’s not a sad time, (well, seeing your babies growing up is a little sad)…it’s just different. This last week, we…

Tracy / November 14, 2010

Well, as usual, time passes too quickly to blog regularly. The last several weeks have been a blur. We celebrated three birthdays, and two graduations. We still have a special 13 year old’s tea and then, of course, Thanksgiving and two more birthdays. It makes me tired to think on all of it at once. *smile* Courtney and Joshua are…
