Snax came up to me tonight with a very serious look on his face.  He said he didn’t know where his new penny went. His new penny he got at the dinosaur museum.  You know the ones that flatten out. It had been in his mouth, but somehow it went down his throat. He was […]

:: 2 days down, 38 more to go.  I made this comment last night while tucking the boys into bed and Goose immediately started doing the math.  “If March has 31 days and it’s only February 14…”  Sundays are not part of Lent.  I know that, but I never knew that until I was in […]

Last weekend my family celebrated my Aunt Mary’s 100th birthday. Yes, 100 years. She is 98 years older than Sunshine. It’s hard to fathom.  Yet it is so beautiful to think Aunt Mary has lived this long.  She is very important to our immediate family, especially my father.  When I was young, I remember the […]

Outside of raising my kids and running this home, there are few jobs I could actually see myself doing. My life goal, the job I am positive I would be amazing at is private detective.  I’m too nosy for my own good, see through lies easily and love figuring out a puzzle.  I used to […]

Last week Lance and I went out of town for our anniversary. We left the kids at home. My mom stayed with the kids. She offered.  When the subject of a trip came up in conversation, it was a given that she would watch the kids.  Not to me!  To her.  It’s what she does, […]

We’re back!  Lance and I took a trip for our anniversary to Key West.  We had a great time, but it was time to return home to our babies.  I have tons of pictures to share, but for now, I’ll share these. And then there is this little girl… One more kid to go, and […]

We went to Mayfield Park in Austin yesterday to check out the peacocks. Peacocks just walking around a park. It was really cool and now I’m in search of some books for the boys. The peacocks were pretty nice and strutted their stuff, opening their feathers for us.  The boys actually got pretty close to […]

Sunday was the feast of Pentecost, the birth of the church.  And like any good Catholic, we celebrated. The boys made tongues of fire hats on Saturday.  Sunday my mom made a fruit salad with 12 fruits representing the fruits of the Holy Spirit.  And we had cake.  It wouldn’t be a birthday without cake. […]

Monday the boys and I spent the day with one of my favorite families.  I met Betsy through our five year-olds at the gym two years ago.  They became fast buddies while we worked out.  Once I found out that she also had an interest in homeschooling, our friendship was solidified.  I had someone who […]
