Soccer Is Back

That chill in the air can mean only one thing…FALL SOCCER!  Sure enough, after weeks of sunny Saturday’s, this past weekend saw temperatures in the 50′s with wind and rain.  But that didn’t stop Cameron and Ellie from kicking off (pun intended) their fall soccer season in style.  They both did fantastic as usual, and had a blast playing their...

One Crazy Night!

This past Saturday Cameron and Ellie each had 3 friends spend the night for their first ever birthday sleepover at our house!  Talk about the perfect ending to a crazy/insane/busy/tiring/busy/busy week!!  While I don’t necessarily look forward to the next time there are NINE children under our roof, I have to say the birthday party was so much fun, and all of the...

Back to School!

Today was such a big day for our family as we walked Ellie to her first day of First Grade, and Cameron to his first day of Third Grade!  We could not be more proud of our wonderful little kiddos, and it was a special morning that we enjoyed sooooooo much. Oddly enough, I have to say Cameron was a little more nervous than Ellie (but he got my...

New Goodies On The ‘Fridge’

Cameron has been bugging me and bugging me (and bugging me!) to get the ‘fridge’ updated.  He has been doing so well on his schoolwork under the promise I would add it to the website.  So…at long last…I am updating our refrigerator door!  This months update not only features Cameron’s classwork, but you will also see some more cute...

Happy 2nd Birthday Cory!!

It’s hard to believe, but two years have gone by since Cory was born on April 9, 2007.  That’s right…our little ‘CJ’ has been falling down, bumping his head, laughing out loud, and throwing things at the TV for two years now!!   In the grand scheme of things, two years isn’t exactly a ‘long time’…but that being...

Oh My Aching…..Teeth?

Cameron and Ellie have a dentist appointment tomorrow.  Why is that ‘blog-worthy’ you ask?  Well, it isn’t exactly the fact they have appointments – rather it’s how they feel about going to their appointments.  Still confused?  Let me explain.  You see, Cameron is actually EXCITED to go to the dentist!  Huh?  What’s that you...

Spring Soccer Is Here

Last weekend saw the start of Spring soccer for Cameron.  Out of all the sports he plays, I really enjoy watching him play soccer the most.  He just seems to have a natural talent for it and he does such a great job on the field.  Even though it was the first game of the season, his team looked great and played a wonderful game.  Cameron was on fire and scored 3...

They’re Just Raspberries!!

Grab a cup of coffee…cuz this one’s gonna take a while. It’s roughly 1986.  I’m sitting at my father’s dinner table all by myself.  Well, not ALL by myself – I have a half of a chicken pot pie to keep me company.  Where is everyone else you ask?  Upstairs…yucking it up to the television.  You see, dinner ended an hour ago...

‘Some Assembly Required’

So this weekend can be summed up in two words:  Play Set.  Jen and I have been working on ‘updating’ our backyard for the past year, and a major part of that project was upgrading our kiddos play-set.  And upgrade we did – this new play-set is amazing, and Cameron, Ellie and CJ could NOT be more excited about the new addition to our back yard.Now I...

What’s On Our Refrigerator?

One of the first pages I ever did for this site was called ‘Kiddos Art’, that was intended to showcase some of the work our kids are up to at their schools.  And while it was popular – and people loved the addition – I never really felt I had it set up right.  Well that’s all changed…and today I am unveiling our new and improved...
