For the record, locally grown, it’s not always as tasty as one thinks.  And it’s a lot more expensive than Costco’s organic berries.  But the kids enjoyed it, and recalled last year when they picked strawberries.  Memories are what I want, and that’s just what we’re creating.

I make cookies fairly regularly.  They don’t last long in this house.  All the boys love to help make cookies, and of course, sample cookie dough. Sunshine was over watching the boys make cookies and decided she wanted in on the action. She loved every second. She had no interest in taking turns with Goose. […]

Even with my anything goes attitude, I was slightly worried that Mother’s Day would be a let down.  Not for me, but for my mom.  We had my dad’s party last night, and everyone was tired.  I didn’t want today to get lost after last night. I should not have worried.  The day turned out […]

What grand, glorious plans I had for this week…there was the lunch with a friend on Friday, a field trip with my favorite K child, and a play-date planned with two adorable boys, one which I would be allowed to hold for the entire play-date, that’s how nice his mom is. Throw in the Audubon […]

 ~ This post is really picture heavy, like really heavy~ Have I mentioned that I love being Catholic?  Yes, I guess I have.  For me the best part is the Easter Triduum.  The mass that never ends.  Three days of really long masses.  Really long, like two hours.  With littles long. Holy Thursday is such […]

Truly have a blast with each other.  And that makes me feel so blessed.  I am definitely not ready to be the mom with just one kid during the day, and I don’t think these two want that either.

Because things couldn’t seem more out of control in this house… The younger boys, meaning every. single. boy. in this house except for Squirt have LICE. See?  I have no shame.  Humility isn’t a problem for me.  Right? Do you realize I have lived in fear of lice since Goose was in first grade? I […]
