Good luck with your race Stacey! If you're looking for a good training program, I highly recommend the NYRR Virtual Trainer: http://www.nyrr.org/train-with-us/training-programs/nyrr-half-marathon-training-program

Congratulations on your marathon! What an awesome accomplishment. Maybe someday I'll do a full one too... maybe. ;)

On May 17, 2013, I received the call from my doctor that my second IVF procedure was a failure. In that moment, I felt like my body had failed me. With all the power of modern medicine, I still could... Continue reading

They are trying to make it to Halloween, but they get an extra bonus if they go all the way to December 31st. So far, so good. Valentine's Day is the first big hurtle. Oh, and they can still eat desserts (cookies, ice cream, etc.), so they are not totally deprived. :)

My girls are trying to go without candy in 2014 (there is a cash reward at the end of the year if they make it), so I had to search out non-candy valentines for them to hand out to their... Continue reading

So sorry you didn't get the news you wanted to hear about Jonas' seizures. That has to be so tough. Thanks for keeping us posted on his progress!

Yes, I am planning to print these out in a photo book at the end of the year! I think you could get the hang of this without a problem if you are familiar with Photoshop. Cathy recently posted a video that shows her Project Life process in real time that might be helpful if you are thinking about getting started: http://cathyzielske.typepad.com/my_weblog/2014/01/project-life-week-four-a-real-time-process-video.html This video also might be helpful. It shows the basics of digital scrapbooking with a layered template: http://vimeo.com/65424129

At the end of last year, I quietly chose my One Little Word for 2014... thrive. 2013 for me was all about just making it through day by day - surviving - and as I got ready to turn the... Continue reading

Funny enough, I don't really consider Ella much of a doll kid either, but she had her heart set on Molly for some reason! I have always loved Molly, so I was happy that one of my girls wanted her!

Yes, I stocked up on some extra Molly items as well!

After the Christmas Eve program, we drove home and put out cookies and milk for Santa. We had decorated cookies the day before and each girl picked out one of their own cookies to leave out. Claire chose that stocking... Continue reading

Happy anniversary! I didn't realize you were a member of the 19-year-old bride club too. ;) We are celebrating 15 years in August, and I am constantly amazed at how lucky I am that things turned out so well despite the fact that yes, I was truly clueless back then!

A few days before Christmas, we headed out to see Santa. I'm pretty sure it was the first time all three girls went willingly and no tears were shed. I guess that means they're growing up. (Sigh.) Ella asked for... Continue reading
