My daughter will be starting school next year in a new school that just opened in our community. The picture above is the location where a playground may one day be installed. Sadly, for some reason no money was allocated to build the children a playground. The children who have started there this year are currently running around on a gravel field during recess, with… Continue

When I was a child, I used to lay awake in my bed and pray that I would not be called to be a nun. Really. Most of my nights were full of this prayer. “Please, please don’t call me” I would beg to God.”. I asked the nuns at school- “How do you know that you are called?”. They answered that there was never a question. It was… Continue

What happiness it is when others hate you and exclude you and insult you and smear your name because you are mine, Luke 6:22
God will exult you in due time...blow all the hater's minds, repay you
for staying on your grind. Reward His beloved for leaving pride behind,
humbling yourself a zillion times. All in an effort to stay in line and
develop a Christ like mind.
You've gained character and… Continue

I woke up this morning having had a nightmare right before I woke up. Not the zombies chasing me, end of the world apocalypse type of nightmare, but the type where you wake up thinking, 'Great, like I needed *that* on my mind.'…

What better way to get in the holiday spirit than witnessing the extravagant window displays put up by the fancy schmancy retailers. I love this type of assault on my visual sense. Oh, where to look next…… Continue

I am big fan of Pioneer Woman. She left LA for the life on a ranch. She lives there with her husband, kids, relatives and extended family of horses as well as other farm animals. And she cooks. Actually she was on "Throwdown with Bobby Flay" Thanksgiving episode.
So here is a yummy cookie recipe from her kitchen.

If the men in your life (husband, boyfriend, dad, brother, older son…) are anything like mine, I know that I can forget about getting a Christmas list from them. After 24 years of marriage I have finally stopped asking for one… Continue

Well it has been 7 days since my last post. Geezzz- I knew I was having connection issues with my internet last Wednesday. When I got home from a long day in Vegas I had no connection at all. Called the provider- they say it's the modem. (I had already purchased a new router while in Vegas that day thinking that was my… Continue

I'm sure you're familiar with the five love languages: words of affirmation, quality time, acts of service, gifts, and touch. We all feel most loved when people provide us with one of these 5 things. If we can learn how to provide our spouse (and kids) with their love language, everyone is much happier.

Last night, my parents told me that my Grandma is suddenly very ill with pancreatic cancer and may only make it another 2 months. If that. Hospice is being called in, she is being made comfortable and, just like that, my last Grandparent and my girls only Great- Grandparent will go to meet her maker.
I sat stunned, unable to comprehend the news. My Grandma is strong. The backbone of my Father's family. The matriarch with the beaming smile, the delicate laugh, and the twinkling eyes.… Continue

As a Christian mom, becoming more and more close to Christ, I can't help but feel a little weird about the way we celebrate this time of year.
The way I grew up was believing in Santa claus. And to be honest it wasn't until I was a little older when I learned the true meaning of Christmas. My kids are young (5,4,3 and 1) but even at these young ages, the 3 older ones know exactly what Christmas is. They are aware that we are celebrating the birth of our lord and savior… Continue

So I thought of starting this 20 days of Chrsimas. I got this idea from my favorite time of the year "25 days of Christmas" on ABC family. So I thought why not have a cookie for every day till Christmas. I am running little late as I missed out on 5 days already. Now I have only 20 days to Christmas left.
So here is today's cookie: Day 1
Thanks to Kraft Kitchen at… Continue

I was leaving my mother-in-law’s today with Thomas and we were saying “bye bye” which is a long process that involves lots of “bye byes” and waving in an attempt to get Thomas to learn to wave. And he DID! He took out his little arm and flapped it back!! Then I squealed (loudly), scared him (oops), and he burst into tears (OMG!). Which made me want to burst into tears. After lots of hugs between my mother-in-law and me, he got over it… but he would not wave again when we said “bye bye.” I’ve… Continue

The photo shoot behind December's masthead. Brought to you by high-fructose corn-syrup and an ass.
Well, it's that special time of year again when I dangle my children by their ankles and ply them with promises of high-fructose corn-syrup treats to pose for the camera. It doesn't take much coaxing, though, since they're processed-food-sugar-junkies. Admittedly, I am their enabler.
Anyway! It's December! So a new masthead!… Continue
