I took a few pictures while camping this trip that really spoke to me. The first was this image. It might not mean much to some people but for me it brings a flood of emotions. John and I were given the basket 10 years ago for our wedding. I’m not sure who gave it…

Family pictures…. am I the only person that DREADS getting pictures of your family taken?  I had Lisa take some pictures of us last November and my boys were AWFUL at cooperating.  Their individual pictures turned out so bad, that I didn’t even bother replacing them out on my wall. The last few months I…

My boys love pancakes!  BUT, I hate making the pancake mess every morning.  Especially, because we had to be out of our house around 8:30 am on the mornings that Nathan had preschool.  About a year ago, I was on the phone with a friend, and I was sort of complaining about my little dilemma….

My good friend Andee and I wanted to throw our kids a fun party for the last day of school. We had seen the banner “Welcome to Summer” on Pinterest and loved the idea. We wanted it to be fun but reasonable in price and effort. They were super excited about it, so excited that…
