Merry Christmas!
Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

Merry Christmas, everyone! I’ve been looking at the stack of Christmas cards, and I think looking at them and reading the letters is one of my favorite parts of this time of year. I haven’t given up on doing a New Year’s card from the Knights, but in the meantime, I just wanted to revive […]

Gratitude (or Early-Morning Musings)
Friday, November 30th, 2012

I know I promised to blog every week about our whole foods adventure, but if you know me at all, it’s probably not that surprising that I didn’t hold up that promise. But if you just don’t mention it to me, we can stay friends, ok? It’s about 5:00 am as I write this, the […]

Whole Foods: Week 1
Monday, August 13th, 2012

Okay, so I’m a little late with this. Why? Well, I have a baby. And two other kids. One of whom desperately wishes he was still a baby. And, uploading pictures from my phone was giving me grief, so I abandoned this post three or four times. Like I need any more stress in my […]

An Adventure in Whole Foods
Sunday, July 15th, 2012

I’m gonna start with a bit of honesty. I’m a mess these days. Some days I feel like I can handle everything, and then some days (happening more frequently, recently) I’m in tears by the time Jesse gets home from work. The other night, Addie said our family prayer, and one of her very few innocent requests was, “Please […]

Last year, Jesse and I started talking about when we’d like to have a third kid. When people asked if we were having any more, or how many we wanted, our answer was always “We get what we get.” For anyone who has had to deal with fertility issues, that question is always a little […]

2011 Year in Review: Holidays
Thursday, July 12th, 2012

This is one of those “hasty” posts I mentioned. We had an awesome fall/holiday season, so I’m just gonna post a gazillion photos and let them tell their own story. (With some caption-help from me, I guess.) Halloween Probably my most favorite time of year! We made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch for […]

2011 Year in Review: The Haircut
Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Ok, so I took a “baby break” for several weeks, but I’m committed, so I’m gonna finish this. Even if it’s in a hasty manner. (By the way, did you know you can type with a baby on your chest, while constantly fending off the ‘helpful’ typing assistance of an almost-2-year-old? That’s how much I’m […]

2011 Year in Review: Me
Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

I only have a few more of these, I promise. Here are a few things I managed to do in 2011: I worked. After Westen was born, we made the decision for me to leave my full-time employment and be more of a stay-at-home mom. While that was always kind of the plan, sometimes you […]

2011 Year in Review: Jesse
Sunday, May 20th, 2012

I realize I post a lot about the kids (“a lot” being a relative term), and that’s because our lives revolve around them. (And I’m learning more and more how that’s just how it goes.) But I’d be remiss in summarizing last year if I didn’t spend a little time on our personal superhero: Jesse. […]

2011 Year in Review: Addie & Westen (A&W)
Friday, May 11th, 2012

The other morning, close to 8:00, I was curious as to why I hadn’t heard from the kids yet. Westen has recently switched to sharing a bunk bed with his sister, and he’s quite fond of the fact that he can get himself up at will (yes, it was quite the fun transition, given his […]
