Thank you Maria! Wonderful insight...I really appreciate it!
After talking with a friend the other day, I realized I'm not alone in my occasional uneasiness with how much I share on my blog - great or small. I go through hills (share away!) and valleys (delete without abandon!!) when it comes to my blog. Lately, I find myself... Continue reading

We had the opportunity to spend some time in Dallas on Saturday - and snagged it! Our original plan for the day was to visit the Dallas Heritage Village and then do a little fabric shopping (for our sewing extravangza coming up) but it didn't quite work out. Upon arriving... Continue reading

The beginning of this school year is different from years past as we juggle selling a house in one state and visiting Les and Niki in two additional different states. It goes without saying, I'm longing for all of us to be back together again. Niki was accepted into her... Continue reading

So true Anna. Sooo true!

It's so easy to get wrapped up in the day to day and miss all the small blessings surrounding us. I was busily trimming the bushes in the front yard last week before the realtor came to list the house. It was sooo hot outside and the softest breeze blew... Continue reading

Thanks Michelle! I hope we can be as blessed as you. Right now it's pretty dead in our area.

The photos below are especially for our parents, brothers, sisters, and friends who have not been able to come out to the house recently or haven't seen some of the changes we've made this summer before moving. I have spent longer than I care to admit cleaning, purging, organizing, and... Continue reading

I put on a movie hoping it would allow me an hour and a half of cleaning time because the house inspector is coming tomorrow. It didn't work out as hoped. Long story short, a large picture frame was knocked off the wall and broken. I gathered the boys around... Continue reading

"Another late night" is probably my motto around here - especially when it comes to moving. ;) I'm REALLY HOPING our next house is our final house.
Me too! I love seeing kids as they progress - whatever it may involve.

I was trying so very hard to purge my bedroom of excess clutter today but it wasn't working out very well. The boys decided to have a jousting match using part of my bedroom and the upstairs hallway making it difficult for me to walk around. Chris would stand in... Continue reading

I'm impressed. Okay, extremely impressed. Niki showed me her drawings last night - the ones she's been doodling before crawling in bed at night. I love how she's made the dresses look so flowing. I asked her pretty please if I could share them with all of you and she... Continue reading

We received a box this morning from Oklahoma. A friend of mine sent Niki some dried zinnias for her Senior Dyeing Project! From what we've researched, these will make elegant yellow and orange dyes. I think the photos speak for themselves about how much Niki appreciates this gift. Thank you!!! Continue reading

Thanks. ;)
Hahahaha - those days are long gone for me. I'll loan you my boys for a little bit and see if you can get to the dryer before it sits there for a few hours...or days. :)
Nice to meet you Charis. I absolutely love this set-up! Drop me a line and let me know what you put together for your own home...maybe you'll think of something I didn't. ;)

This may be mommy bliss right here: A Place to Fold Clothes 1. Finding a place to fold clothes can sometimes become a challenge. I've been seen folding clothes at the kitchen table, on beds, or from the basket while watching the rare show. Many times I put off folding... Continue reading

I know - doesn't it?!

"We don't eat things that aren't food!" - I say that one too often myself. "Get your feet out of the cereal box!" - I laughed out loud when I read that...and then shared it with my daughter. We both agreed that there's potential I'll have to use that one in the future. Love it!
Just got another book title suggestion that I really like. "Can I Call You Mom?" Zach almost instantaneously started calling us mom and dad the first night they stayed with us.

"Just because your dad bolted your dresser to the wall, does not mean you can keep jumping off of it." "No, we're not buying chai tea right now. Maybe next time." "We only go potty in the toilet!" "Yes, you can make a wine reduction dipping sauce" to my 16... Continue reading
