Another Weekend...

ANOTHER WEEKEND OF summer down! It's going so fast!! We are now half way through July and I feel like summer just got started, EEEK! I guess the closer we get to August the more I start thinking about school and getting my ducks in a row. Planning schedules, looking at activities, and making sure we have a good balance can take a lot of time. Maybe not physically, but definitely mentally....more

Growing up...

TIME JUST AMAZES me. I feel like I watch my children each day and before my eyes they grow up and I don't always appreciate until moments like today. My peanut boy joined Cub Scouts today. It was a little like deja vu watching him with all his new scout mates. It seem like just yesterday I was taking my oldest to Scouts and my peanut wasn't even born yet.

I mean a whole 11 x 17 pan of pie, I was like Garfield and lasagna....more

Books...

SO WHAT BOOKS are on your nightstand right now? I don't get a lot of time to read, but a few weeks ago my hubby bought me a Kindle Touch and I have to say I LOVE IT!! I don't know how many times in my life I've struggled to read a book because I either would fall asleep reading or would read only to find myself thinking, "what on earth did that just say" and really having no idea what I'd just read. I like books or at least I like the idea of books and getting lost in the story....more

Homemade Pretzels...

IN THE KITCHEN today we made homemade pretzels! They are the best! My oldest grew up making them, but this is the first time I've made them with my little guys. It was great fun. What a great way to spend a wet day, by playing with dough you can eat!...more
