Lucas was special helper in class right before his birthday, so we brought in a snack and a treat for the kids to celebrate. His class was learning about worms and dirt that day, so Lucas and I made dirt... Continue reading

As the little brother, you expect to get some old clothes handed down to you... but this shirt is about 34 years old! I love putting the boys in their daddy's old clothes! This shirt didn't work for Lucas, but... Continue reading

Our friend and fellow Fit4Mom-er, Patti, is married to a fireman, so she graciously arranged for a special class at his fire station on a Saturday. We had such a great time and the kids loved seeing the fire trucks... Continue reading

This year, we celebrated a decade of married life. Being Mrs. Nelson has been pretty fantastic; I couldn't imagine my heart belonging to anyone else! These last ten years have been the happiest of my life and we have done... Continue reading

My girlfriend across the street had a party for her 30th birthday and went with a western theme for the event. At first, I didn't think we'd have anything to wear, but I quickly realized we had some key pieces... Continue reading

We had a parenting coach guest speaker after class one day and she was talking about how 4 is a "power age" - kids like role playing powerful personalities. Boy, I couldn't agree more. Lucas is constantly saving the day... Continue reading

As we worked to get clothes organized for the warmer season, we had plenty of accessories to sort through as well. Paul is a good sport, so he got to try most of them on. He had quite the ensemble... Continue reading

My boys have a mama and two grandmas who really like to shop, so suffice it to say, they have quite an extensive wardrobe. I have to swap out their closets by season because I can't fit everything, but I... Continue reading

This boy is starting to really look like a kid. The baby look in his face diminishes a little more each day. He's still such a little guy, but my goodness is he growing fast. March 12, 2015 Continue reading

Baby's first mohawk! There's a very specific reason why I've stuck to a classic little boy cut with Lucas and will for as long as I can with both boys. They grow up fast enough without giving them a big... Continue reading
