Do your kids cook? I confess; I do most of the cooking around here mostly because I really enjoy doing it. I do, however try to get the kids helping in the kitchen on purpose. Here is a super easy kid friendly Tomato Soup recipe, that we found in the Southern Living Kids Cookbook and… [continue reading]
Off to College
I’ve had a difficult time wanting to write about Faith’s graduation. This year 2020 did its thing! At first her graduation and senior play were postponed. We were ok with that. The new dates, however coincided with new shut downs in our area. In the end, it was all canceled, and we couldn’t even have… [continue reading]
Happy 18th Birthday, Faith!
And just like that we have an adult daughter, at least that’s what the state says her age means. Fortunately she is also responsible, sweet, and hardworking, so I’m happy to call her an adult! 😉 We celebrated Faith’s 18th birthday with flowers from her father–tradition! Instead of a birthday cake she asked for Haagen-Dazs… [continue reading]

Our Initiation into Parenthood
It was at the hospital after the birth of our first child that I first realized what a sound sleeper my husband is. I don’t remember what it was I needed, but I kept pushing the nurse’s button and nothing was happening. I tried calling Jason, who was asleep on a pull out chair beside… [continue reading]
Love Your Hair
I am excited to partner with Dove™ Hair and The Motherhood in the Love Your Hair campaign. All opinions are my own! She was my first baby, and I was thrilled I was having a GIRL! Oh how I loved playing with my dolls when I was little, and now I had a real baby… [continue reading]
Happy 15th Birthday to my sweet Faith
Fifteen years! When I want to scream, “Not possible!” I look again at the sweet, responsible girl before my eyes. How proud I am of the young lady she is becoming. All of my kids can draw, thanks to Faith. When she was about nine she decided she wanted to learn to draw. Inspired by… [continue reading]
National Candy Collecting Day 2015
Dress up and go door to door to get free candy every year? We’re in! Every year we go to our costume closet and reuse and recycle costumes. The kids can choose from something we have or make their own. You know what they never mind. I mean, let’s be real. It’s all about the… [continue reading]
