Four Years!!
Her birthday happened to fall on Super Tuesday this year.  Probably the only time in her life that it will happen and what a wonderful distraction it was!   I can hardly believe she's four. I don't know where the time has gone, but I'm thrilled to have her ...

Halloween, 2016
Halloween, 2016.  Dean, usually the one no one recognizes because he's the supporting costume to someone else, chose to be the anchor of our costumes this year by being Gru from Despicable Me. The only thing he actually had to purchase was a black shirt. ev...

Apple Annie's
We found a local pumpkin patch this year, just in time for a visit from Grandma JoJo and Grandpa Blake.  When I say "local" I mean we drove for an hour and a half to get there.   Apple Annie's is located in Wilcox, Az. A little farming community just west o...

Eight Big Ones
7/6/08...A date I can never remember. It should be 6-7-8, or 8-7-6, but it seems fitting for this middle man of ours who is always a little discombobulated.  A swim/sports/race car birthday is what he chose.  Never an easy choice for him, but we tried hard ...

Losses and Gains
He's 6 months old today! A milestone for any baby, but one that I've been thinking about a lot, particularly with him. You see, the first six months of a baby's life are super duper critical.  No one really ever tells you this before you have kiddos.  Oh, I...
