Fun at the Lake!


Hi everyone, most of you know we moved to a new house 2 years ago and we’re enjoying it so much. We’re right off of the lake so that makes for lots of fun fishing trips, and afternoons at the beach! And since we live in Colorado this is probably the closest thing I’ll get to living at the beach…

Summer Vacation 2014


It’s that time of year where there’s an abundance of… hot summer days… cool swimming pools… warm summer evenings with iced tea and a porch swing… amazing sunsets… time to relax, refresh, and remember… and that’s exactly what we’re doing this week.   We’ll be enjoying some amazing scenery, time with family, and hopefully making some great memories! Don’t worry,…

Taking a few days off…


  Hi everyone!  While I won’t quite be in the serene setting above, I am going to take a couple days off this week for a family wedding! We hope to see lots of family and friends as well.  And I’m seriously considering going sans technology! I’ll probably bring along my iPad so I can do a little reading, but…

Happy Independence Day America!


I hope you are all having a wonderful and safe holiday with friends and family! I am also taking a break to be with loved ones, having some yummy BBQ, talking my Teeny Tot through another year of giant overhead explosions, and enjoying squeals from the kids as each one lights up the night sky with freedom! Thank you to…

Happy 7th Birthday My Sweet Boy!


I can’t believe you are 7 years old today, this very minute! It seems like just yesterday I was holding a 5 pound sweet baby boy in my arms! And today, you are such an awesome blessing to our family. You’re a wonderful brother and just an awesome dude in general. You’re laugh is contagious, and I love that even…

Happy Mother’s Day!


I wanted to take a moment today to say “Thank You” to my awesome mom and mother-in-law! You are both so wonderful and caring, and the kids couldn’t love you more! Actually, I think they love you more than me! Probably because you bribe them with mints and let them have popsicles for breakfast. ;o) We are truly honored and…

Happy Birthday to my Baby!


I can’t even believe my sweet little baby is 2 years old today! She’s been such a blessing to us and though I was slightly, um…freaked out…when we found out we were having a 4th child, I wouldn’t trade it for the world! She’s the light of our hearts and house and we love her! Happy birthday Chubby Bubba a.k.a.…
