My 365... Hello Tuesday.  :) After weeks of my bike sitting in the garage, I was finally able to get in a bike ride today.  Casey had a doctor's appointment this afternoon, so we decided to save on gas and ride.  It is a chilly 43° degrees outside, but clear sunny skies.  It felt wonderful!  I enjoyed my afternoon with my Casey.  <3 Hope your day was great....more

My 365... We are enjoying a nice calm Monday today.  Jack had a meeting this morning to work on his resume and he found it very helpful.  Casey met with the orthodontist to check on his palate expander, and he is doing well. Today would have been my mom's 82nd birthday.  It is no surprise that mom was born so close to Thanksgiving.  She was one of those special people who everyone was always so thankful to have in their life.  Mom passed away in February of 2007.  It is hard to believe she has been gone for so long.  :*( ...more

My 365... Hello Saturday. The Christmas tree is sitting dark in the corner.  We are still going through all the strands of lights trying to fix the ones that are only half working, or that are missing a bulb or two.  I am not going to spend much more time on this project, as I am pretty close to tossing all the old lights out in the garbage and getting  few new sets.  Much less frustrating that way. ...more

My 365... Happy Friday! No Black Friday shopping for this family today.  Instead, we are enjoying a day of calm, rest and relaxation, just the way I like it! Yesterday was truly a perfect day.  The boys and I had lots of fun preparing Thanksgiving dinner and taking photos to capture the memories forever.  Jack's turkey came out beautifully.  The Thanksgiving shenanigans lasted well past midnight with Garrett dressing up like a ninja turtle, chasing the boys through the house wielding his imaginary sword.  LOL, I love my silly boys!...more
