As dinner is simmering on the stove, I thought I would drop in to say hello. So, how is everyone?? I hear from some of you from time to time…and I pray for you and your families. I hope all is well in your homes. I’m feeling more nauseated by the day. I think that’s a good thing, though I’m…

Emma just completed her first term in violin lessons! She’s been playing frequently….I’ll admit I’m humming that “eggs, eggs, eggs” song, all day, on most days.

We’ve been fortunate to find some really cute ornament kits this year! This is Emma’s Christmas tree:

Emma’s Birthday….

I *love* birthdays! (Well,those that belong to the younger folks around here, anyway. *smile*) Emma’s birthday always marks the “birthday season” in our home. I’ve been working recently to make these days extra special. I’ve added some things to our celebrations and I still have a couple of things to put together, then I’ll share the projects with all of…

My Big Girl…

Tracy / October 7, 2011

You would think the thought of having this done was piercing his heart — he has talked her out of it one time after another. He finally told her that she could have it done when she turned six years…of course, that’s just…

To tell the truth, we’ve not felt so well the last week. I hate to see them not feeling well, but I think it’s just part of life this time of year. I’m always glad to see everyone on the mend, but this does give us a chance to pause and see them all back to health. Please keep my…

Tonight’s fun….glow bath– we like to shake things up just a little from time to time. *smile* So, the ingredients for this night of fun…..a bathtub, a handful of glow sticks from the dollar store and a bunch of littles: This little person didn’t want to come out of the tub!

First, let me ask– as I try to update things now that we have internet, I would love to visit some of you on your blogs too. Would you mind leaving me a comment with your blog address? I would love to drop in and say “hello” from time to time.

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,…

I don’t know where to begin with this one… Courtney and I were trying out a new granola recipe last week from our sweet friend Betsy (Betsy, your granola is by far the BEST we’ve ever tried!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!). I snapped a picture for a project we’re planning later this year when Emma saw the camera…
