Behind the Blog Posts

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016 in About Me

I did it! I caught up on our family’s life all the way up until Christmas on our blog. That was my goal and I did not think it could be done. Life has had a lot of beautiful moments, fun things to do, and places to go. Life has also been stressful, at times sad, […]

Christmas Eve

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016 in About Me

Christmas Eve is always spent with my side of the family. For as long as I can remember we have done Mexican food, acted out the nativity, and ate the same cookies. I will love tamales till the day I die! I’ll always have my Christmas Eve’s like this when I have grandkids as well. […]

Friday, January 1st, 2016 in About Me

This post is out of order, I’m going to move it down to September after a week or two.  Abby decided to try a new class this year at her dance studio, BALLROOM! It is always surprising to see (and I’m just entering this world) what your kids end up enjoying and gravitating towards. She […]

Holiday Performances

Friday, January 1st, 2016 in About Me

You could celebrate Christmas with only attending your kids’ holiday performances and have a very full season. I do wish we could appoint another month as kid performance month so we could all enjoy it a bit more. How is February for everyone? Get us out of the winter blues? Piano Abby & Cameron have […]

Things I Loved This Christmas Season Part 3

Thursday, December 31st, 2015 in About Me

This season we did have a couple groups of visitors and we were also sick a lot. Which made it so I don’t know if they were the ideal situations. I felt bad, the weeks leading up to Christmas are a hard time to have visitors. That combined with going through so much sickness made […]

Things I Loved This Christmas Season Part 2

Thursday, December 31st, 2015 in About Me

Decorating the new home for Christmas was fun. Still trying to figure out where things would look the best. I bought fresh garland this year but bought it very early so it could be ready for early holiday celebrations. By the time I took pictures it was looking very dried out. Then when I took […]

Things I Loved This Christmas Season Part 1

Thursday, December 31st, 2015 in About Me

I wanted to try some new outings to see if they could turn into traditions this year. I didn’t make it to one which is on my list for next year. I really want to go to This Is the Place for the Lantern Festival. It sounds like it would be gorgeous. Who wants to […]

Breakfast with Santa at Grand America

Thursday, December 31st, 2015 in About Me

The Santa & Mrs. Claus at Grand America are the best ones out there. It was our first year of no screaming or crying while visiting Santa. Still some shyness, but that is a-okay. Video here   We won’t ever go anywhere else to see him. And in our house more importantly HER. The girls […]
