Tales of the Trees

My name is Megan and I am a twenty something wife and mom. I started blogging in 2007 on a whim and now find myself blogging about random stories from life, my faith, family memories and anything and everything in between!

Fall, Fall, Fall, let's have a ball!

September 1st. I know I'm going to sound like the most predictable person in the world but I woke up this morning and though "ahhh, I really want to bake some pumpkin chocolate chip muffins". I don't think I've ever even made those before but for some reason the realization that today was September made me want to make them ....more

What's Up Wednesday!

I've been wanting to get back on here and blog for awhile but I didn't really know where to begin, then I saw this link up and I thought it was perfect for the blog. Basically it's a list of questions that helps me sum up what we've been up to since I last blogged (in april, WHAT?) so here we go…....more

Good Weekend

Well we all survived the stomach bug!Phew, that was a doozy. By Tuesday we were all functioning and back to normal but it took until Thursday before we were all eating normal again. That bug was bad ....more

Our First Time

Well, there's a first time for everything and our family has experienced another first. These past couple of days we experienced our first family stomach bug.Actually Annie has yet to get the stomach bug and we are hoping and literally praying that she doesn't get it. I thought for sure she was going to get it this morning because she slept way longer than normal and was acting a bit cranky, but soon she was acting like her normal self.I'll spare you the details because really who wants to hear that mess but it started with me and went downhill from there ....more

Brennan Manning, Abba's Child I first read the above quote in a book in the middle of my college experience. From the moment I read the sentence it struck a chord in me ....more

Recyling Those Big PIctures

When I was planning the kid's party I put myself on a pretty strict budget. Thankfully I have my Scentsy income that provides extra money for stuff like this. But I also knew it wouldn't be wise to spend so much of my paycheck on a birthday party.With that said I wanted the money I spent to be smart ....more

Choo Choos and Tutus a Joint Birthday Party

For a couple of months prior to March I debated whether to have a joint birthday party for the kids.Their birthdays are nine days apart so it logistically made sense, but now that Eli is four I didn't know if he would want to share his party. He has been talking about his birthday party since before Christmas and proclaiming how excited he was about it....more
