On snoring……

Just wondering God what was your creative thinking when you invented snoring? I am sure you are aware how it can keep wives awake for hours upon hours. And as you know we moms/wives need our sleep so we can function and be that kind, tender-hearted, jovial, energetic women you want us to be. Not…

From the Inventor………

I think this is the best time of the year.  We love celebrating the birth of Jesus.  I like to  have that feeling on Christmas morning that it’s  finally the day to open my presents!  I also like it because our whole family gets to be home for at least 12 days!  I hope that…

I thought I would honor you with some simply gorgeous, photos of my beautiful family. We were looking goooooood for these pics. The first picture is actually my…

Jesus still dwells in the center of my town!!

This is the Nativity that sits right smack in the middle of my town! It has been there for several decades, and after a battle with the ACLU in 1994 it still stands in the center of town, loudly proclaiming the reason for Christmas is still Jesus! Back in 94 several ACLU lawyers demanded the…

A Few More Traditions

After a fun day yesterday making painted glass ornaments with The Inventor and a silly night out shopping with SportTman, I am getting back to down to the business of the week ahead. I just cooked chili and a family favorite, ham and noodle casserole to serve later this week. This way when things get…

Bummer!

Today we were planning to drive down to Washington DC to see the Redskin game…..but instead I am sitting home in my PJ’s with a migraine! Can you believe it??!!! UGH! It’s not a killer migraine the kind where I throw-up non stop and basically lay in bed and sleep all day. It’s more of…

The Infamous Cookie Party

For the past 4 years, The Inventor has invited 7-10 girls to our house for a Christmas Cookie Baking party. It has become a rather endearing tradition. Today was the big day for this event! And once again, it was a fun time. The Inventor and I make the dough for most of the cookies…
