There he is, my little graduate! The kids all sang songs and Matt, of course, only participated in about half of it. He told me he was tired of them…Continue

Waaaaay back in the day when I was pregnant with Matt, my sister in law, Nicole (I know, weird, right?) gifted me with a Polaroid digital camera at my baby shower (a500 if you're technical and that means anything to you).

Mothers' Day is not about jewelry. It's not about a day at the spa. It's not about lunch at a fancy restaurant or even breakfast in bed.
I'm embarrassed when I see moms complaining about a lack of "wow" on Mothers' Day. Usually they have small children, so what they're really complaining about are their husbands. What do you mean you didn't get anything. Look at your children! How many quiet hours have you spent blissfully rocking your newborns? How many raspberries have…

These are Luke's recent favorite. He plays with these things every single day! We have four and a bunch of accessories. We had been keeping one up on the top shelf of their closet, just because three seemed to be more than enough…Continue
