Well, Well, Well, tomorrow is Monday

Monday, Monday, back to school tomorrow.  My alarm clock has not seen 5:42am for almost 2weeks.  But tomorrow it is back to reality.  Christmas Break will be over.  Hold on I need to get a tissue…..sniff, sniff! I have really relaxed this break.  It was so needed!  I got to enjoy lots of my favorite…

Summer Fun! What do to when they scream “I’m Bored!!!”

As my kids are beginning the journey into their teen years, I find myself thinking back to the days before iPods, Rock Band, summer jobs, weightlifting, and babysitting jobs.  Days when summer meant taxing my creative brain to come up with activities/ideas to keep the kids from the constant complaining of “I’m bored!” So this…

The Creation Museum

Several of you left comments wondering about the Creation Museum from my last post.  So I wanted to post more information on it. It’s in Boone County, Kentucky and it’s vision is part of the ministry of AiG ( Answers in Genesis) and lead by Creation Scientist and speaker Ken Hamm. It’s a beautiful, modern…

Why I love “You Tube”

In a random weird, crazy, fun mommy moment, I started to sing this song out of the blue.  My kids immediately  gave me “THAT” look.  You know the look, the “are you for real mom, get a grip and stop singing that stupid song” look!  But being the obnoxious, fun mom that I am, I…

Things to do when stuck in a traffic jam

We had the pleasure of being stuck in a traffic jam for a whopping 3.5 hours recently!! It was due to a fatal accident on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. So in case you are stuck in a MAJOR traffic mess for endless hours in the middle of the summer. I thought I would offer you…

Sick mama slaves in kitchen to make special cookies for kids!

Check out these cookies I whipped up as a snack for the kids yesterday……while I was home sick. Before you think I must be feeling great to make homemade cookies…..or gosh, she must be trying to win the coveted “mom of the year” award, she made cookies while she was sick. Neither is true! Albeit,…

Let it snow…let is snow…let it snow!

I have always thought family vacations are important times of bonding, and enjoying fun together. Even when I was a SAHM and we were quite broke, we still tried to take some kind of family vacation. We just thought it was a priority to get away together, spend time being a family, and savor time…

Christmas Vacation FUN!!!

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…

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…

Christmas Traditions

Oh I am a traditionalist! I love my Christmas traditions and my children are now at a fun age to truly appreciate them ( SportTman is 12 and The Inventor is 10). MomRn2 is hosting a Christmas Traditions listing of everyone’s favorites. I definitely wanted in on this one. So with out further adieu I…

Crazy, Fun times – Wordless Wednesday

At our house we believe in having fun together….so my sweet, dear husband gladly volunteered to sacrifice his body for some good, clean fun. He even wanted to be duct tapped upside down, but I wouldn’t let him. 🙂 So the kids gathered outside, got all our duct tape, and plastered hubby to a tree….
