Well here are some things that we’ve been up to: I made the girls carrot shirts and hair clips for Easter and all the kids got fleece carrots. Oh and before that I made the girls a bunch of clover hair clips for St Patrick’s Day. Oh AND I surprised the kids with a hamster [...]

October is a fun month around here with four of us having birthdays! Ethan was first and he had his second annual Lego party. Then it was me, John and now my BABY Jillian is about to turn three! I am prepping for her party tomorrow and I hope she is happy with it. She [...]

Ethan’s birthday party was last weekend two weeks ago and we were lucky enough to have been given a Hexbug Nano party kit for the kids to enjoy. We had the party at the gym in our local town hall and it was a great great great great party (according to the birthday boy). It [...]

Happy Birthday Jillian! I can’t believe that you are 2 today! I am not crying about it like I thought I’d be but I really wish you could have stayed a little baby a lot longer. Instead you are the one who grew up the fastest.  You have been out of diapers for months, are [...]

Oh Ben I can’t believe its your birthday AGAIN! How are you growing up so fast? I love you tons. I hope you enjoy the day even though I am a rotten mom and am breaking our cinnamon rolls with a candle birthday breakfast tradition because I didn’t go to the grocery store this week. [...]

Wow Jamie turns 4 today! She actually stayed up on the 4th of July until after midnight last night and we sang happy birthday on the car ride home (we had a lot of fun at a friend’s house and it was hard to drag the sleepy kids away). Today we kept with our cinnamon [...]

The weather was HOT and humid the last 2 days. Yesterday I kept the boys home from school because I thought we could use a day off and it was a great day. Today we were back to school and it was Jamie’s last day of preschool for the year. After we picked up the [...]

Thanks to Mom Bloggers Club and Sesame Place our family was given tickets to the opening day of Sesame Place’s 30th anniversary season! We have never been to Sesame Place with the kids (and I’m sure its very different from the one time I went as a little kid) so it was a big adventure [...]

I don’t know how it happened but my baby is 18 months already! In honor of her 1/2 birthday yesterday we ate 1/2 a cake (and then finished the other 1/2 for breakfast today along with some cut up fruit). It may have just been a 1/2 birthday but the kid made a FULL MESS!

I love our little woods! I have to confess I don’t take the kids back there enough. Its tough with Jillian so little and it makes me nervous to venture too far back without John, but Friday was was gorgeous and the 6 of us plus my father and brother took a little adventure through [...]
