Rocco

Monday, May 30th, 2016 in About Me

In January our sweet Rocco passed away. It was really hard on our family, every single one of us. I was surprised at how every person in our family handled his death in a different way. Five months later and Shae still asks about him every day. Rocco leading up to January had two scares. […]

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, […]

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 […]
