One of my best friends in the whole wide world, Tracy, came over to visit a few weeks ago. She brought her three little people, who are perhaps some of my favorite kids ever. They have such sweet personalities and are bundles of non-stop energy. They make me miss having small people running around . . .
An Olympics Themed Birthday Party My son's birthday is in August, so his birthday party always happens about two weeks after school starts. He will be going to middle school next year, one that none of his friends will be attending, we decided to have his party early this year. In honor of the . . .
We are on our way to my sister's house to celebrate Easter and my little brother's birthday. Before I go, I wanted to share what I have been up to this morning. To try to pry the kids out of bed (mine aren't small anymore, so they tend to sleep in) without having to dump cold water on them, I . . .

It's been quiet here for the last few days because I was getting ready to host Thanksgiving at our house, and then recovering from the event for two days. Every year, I think it should be easier since I've done it so many times now, but in reality, it's always a crazy flurry of activity until the . . .
As I've mentioned before, I love Pinterest. For those of you that don't know the wonder and joy of Pinterest, it's a virtual cork board of sorts. For years, when I found something I found interesting online, I would bookmark it, and then promptly forget about it. Now, I can save all everything to my . . .
While looking for Fall decoration ideas, I found this on Pinterest. While I don't eat much candy corn, decorating with it is fabulous! (Visit Woman's Day for more ideas on decorating with candy corn.) I loved them because they didn't scream "HALLOWEEN!!" at you, so you could use them for all . . .
