Thanks! Your msg made me think how cute one would look on top of a child's gift instead of a bow! Great bathtub toy, too!

We were all snuggling in bed a few mornings ago... Huck: You're mine Mom. I'm not letting you hug or kiss Daddy anymore. Only me. Stephen: Nice. I think it's time for LIttle Oedipus to get ready for school. Huck:... Continue reading

I love a good pumpkin recipe! Who doesn't? In fact, over the years I've posted several of my favorites right here. Today I want to recycle a few of my family's top pumpkin recipes and add a few new ones... Continue reading

Huck 2 best buddies from the neighborhood, Jon & Finn, go to a different school. Not a big deal for Huck but I've been curious about who he's gravitating toward in Kindergarten this year. Me: So are Jacob and Austin... Continue reading

Wow. For a "seasoned writer, blogger and counselor of mind/heart/spirit" you have a very harsh communication style. Clearly knowing nothing about how Heather's family allocates their other money (not having cars, TV, Cable, and other major expenses many people choose to take on) you made some very negative comments about her choices. Her lifestyle is void of empathy? Not grounded in reality? Generated from a very small space? Man. All because 4 words rubbed you the wrong way? Quite the spirit healer. Best of luck with that counseling stuff. I hear it takes tact, but maybe not so much as I thought.

I also currently spend $800 a month on groceries. I live in the mountain west and there is only 1 grocery store with in 40 miles of my home. We pay a premium, and I mean premium to live deep in the mountains. Grocery cost WAY more out here. My family from the DFW area in Texas are always amazed at the price differences. We make far less than most people but we do not need clothing for work, we work from home so spend way less on gas, and don't pay for any TV, cable, XM radio, dish, etc. So MUCH less on home entertainment than most Americans. My point here is that spending more on groceries doesn't neccessarily mean you have more disposable income. It just means you spend what income you have in different ways.

Well, as I said, onions were one of my big garden success stories. I didn't plant too few, or too many, they grew well and didn't get any little buggies. I harvested 26 nicely sized medium yellow onions. Of course,... Continue reading

For starters, it was AWESOME! There were a few bumps along the roadin the days leading up--A self-tanner accident that required 3 days of scrubbing my legs with lemon juice, and some anxious over-plucking of my eyebrows--but in the end,... Continue reading

Pretty well, thank you very much. This is my first garden bigger than a kitchen window sized thing. It took us almost 3 years to get the area ready. Year one Stephen did most of the hard work of prepping... Continue reading
