Happy Thanksgiving!

November 30, 2013 That 31 Days Challenge is what I’m blaming for my lack of blogging just because I have to place blame somewhere. I ran out of things to say or stopped having thoughts that I wanted to put into writing (I can’t decide…it’s not that I think I have anything important to say, […]

With these children. With this husband. There are […]

This guy that took a FOUR hour nap today so I finally felt like I got something accomplished! Oh yeah, he had to sleep in that hoodie with it over […]

My Plans

September 12, 2013 In case you’re wondering, I won the Mother of the Year award, last night. Cray had a fever after spending two days with Kuy with the same fever, Kuy had just woken up from a five hour nap (yes, you read that right), and supper needed to be made. I won the award for my […]
