Lost Christmas lights and being Thankful

I was getting so frustrated yesterday…..it was one of those days where I was hoping to bake cookies with my daughter, decorate the tree, and just enjoy some family time.  But my best laid plans quickly dissolved when my dryer stopped working.  So I spent 2 wonderful unpleasant hours at the good ole laundromat.  I…

The Great Outdoors

I know I have written before about how my kids  LOVE to play outside.  I have often said, some people  have “outdoor dogs”, I have “outdoor kids.”   We are so blessed to have a woods with a creek behind our house.  Over the years playing in the woods has evolved into many things……..fort building,…

WHY?????

Guess what I was doing this weekend?  🙂 WHY is it when you take WORKING Christmas lights off a bush in January, store them in a secure, safe location.

Aloha Friday

Christmas is coming, just in case your forgot. 🙂  So what do YOU want for Christmas this year?  I am not much of a stuff person.  I rarely get out to our mall, and I have little time for shopping.  So I am not sure what special item I would like for Christmas.  I need…

Memories of the scripture-mobile

What us moms do for our kids…….

I dropped off The Inventor at soccer practice the other day.  And as I often do while she is at practice, I go for a power walk.  But this day it was different, I noticed that it was trash night in the town I was walking in.  Just what I needed I thought to myself. …

Silence is golden!

I walked into the computer lab at school the other day to get my computer upgraded. My son just bought a new iPod Nano, so I needed the newest iTunes version.   As I entered the lab I was suddenly overwhelmed by the silence! There were no classes in the lab at the time, just…

Friday Fave Five

I like this carnival over at Susanne‘s. I get to think about my five favorite things this past week….and what a busy week, thus my lack of blog posts. 😦 But I am thinking things should start to slow down next week.  So in anticipation of a slower week, here are several relaxing moments I…
