Paul and his friend sang “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.” They were adorable! When Paul says “qwacker jacks” my heart melts. Annie, Kimberly and Madeline along with a friend preformed “Maria” from The Sound of Music. Talk about adorable, nothing compares to the 4 of them in nun costumes singing. The Girls came up [...]
Becoming a biracial family is a huge decision. There are tons of things to consider when one becomes a biracial family. Oddly enough the research and information you find focuses on the bad things that you have to consider if you want to deal with. So sad not too see much information out there about [...]

As I have mentioned before I am a season ticket holder at Gammage. When I go once a month the Girls are always so excited/jealous. They ask for details of the show and dream about going. This season Beauty and the Beast was coming and they were wishing and hoping they could go. Kimberly even [...]
This year for April fools I was subbing so I was not able to spend a lot of time creating something fabulous for April Fools day. I had to resort to some easier things that were just as much fun. I switched the sugar bowl with salt and offered the kids hot tea with dinner. [...]
Our kids are getting so big but they still enjoy a simple egg hunt or two. The kids looked adorable as always. We had a nice day at home. Grammy, Jake, Joey and Wyatt came over for dinner. Annie folded the napkins into bunny faces while the other girls made place cards for the table.
The kids always love going to the GoDaddy family picnic and this year was no different. Because it was on the day before Easter they did an Easter egg hunt. The kids had fun searching for the eggs. They each were able to pick a snack. Daddy got to hold all their treasures while they [...]
In this busy life we lead it is easy to get burdened down with lots of different thoughts and situations. Some days it seems as though everything that can go wrong is and the people around you are only there to cause you trouble. In general I am optimistic. I like to believe that people’s [...]
As a Girl Scout Leader I like to do things with the Girls that expose them to service. I want them to be compassionate toward others and really make an effort to be kind. For Valentine’s day we took Mimi’s troop to the Alzheimer’s Home and the Girls painted the nails of the older ladies. [...]
The Girls had such fun making skirts for their American Girl dolls from the leftover fabric. Just look how cute Rebecca looks.
The kids had a sock hop at school. I thought they could wear jeans and white shirts but they had other ideas. I hesitantly made three poodle skirts the night before the sock hop. Thankfully I found this no sew poodle skirt tutorial and my Mother was there to help get the project started. This [...]
Madeline has been doing ballet again this year. She had a winter show and did a great job. She earned a participation ribbon.
Madeline had a tooth that was dangling. It was her 8th loose tooth. She finally let me pull it out last night.
We carved our pumpkins the day before Halloween. With our busy schedule it was a mad dash to clean them and carve them but we got the job done. The kids always love getting dirty and scooping out the goo. This year was no exception. Kimberly wanted a cyclops. Annie wanted her pumpkin carved into [...]
This year we decided to allow the children to do more sports. We have taken complete breaks and have had much success at just allowing our children to be children. However, they were really pushing to do things. Kimberly is determined that she is going to be an olympic swimmer and Madeline wants to dance, [...]
The kids were invited to a birthday party at an indoor swimming pool. They were so excited since they had only been to an indoor pool once at a hotel in Seattle. They had such fun hanging out and playing with their friends. Even though Annie and Kimberly had already swam for 3 hours that [...]
Our kids love swimming. They want to spend all their time in the pool and have become such great swimmers. Kimberly is bound and determined to be an olympic swimmer. She loves to race and is super fast. She really wanted to be on a swim team but a quick google search revealed that there [...]
The kids are adjusting well to being back in school. Paul just loves kindergarten and even though he is EXHAUSTED when he comes home he loves going and it is no surprise that his favorite subject is recess. Madeline is enjoying second grade. She is just cruising along waiting for it to get challenging. Annie [...]« Previous Entries
