Ellie = 7

I suppose it’s pretty special that two of our kiddos have birthdays so close together…and I’m sure one day (when the unbelievable stress is gone) we will look at this week with a great deal of affection and nostalgia.  For now?  It’s nothing more than your average chaotic/crazy/hectic/unbelievably-special week!  Today, our wonderful daughter...

My Favorite Christmas Book

One of the best parts of the Christmas season is all the wonderful books and movies that we only get to watch and read for one month out of the year.  While there are a number of movies that are a ‘must’ each season…there is only ONE book that I absolutely have to read at least once each December.  That book is the magnificent Red Ranger Came Calling...

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...
