Duck Dynasty Ruffling Feathers?

While listening to the radio this morning I found the predominate discussion to be Duck Dynasty. Apparently one of the members of the Duck Dynasty family is being suspended from the show after sharing his thoughts on modern immorality which lead to an uproar in the homosexual community.  (While listening to the banter on the radio […]

A place for Kittens to hang their Mittens

Here in NW Ohio we were blessed with 6 inches of snow and the kiddos could not have been more excited! Don’t you just love seeing their eyes light up when they see snow? There is something magical about those big flakes falling from the sky. It is as if you are inside a snow […]

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of Parenthood

  The day started off perfect. We picked the kiddos up from my parents’ house after a fabulous overnight. We stopped at Meijer’s and got a few odds and ends. Most importantly, boots for our son since the forecast called for 6 inches of snow. We didn’t want him to be the only one not […]

Cutting down the Tree

Saturday was the Ohio State/Michigan game a.k.a. ‘The Game’ and around these parts that is a HUGE deal! Talk about “fandom”! When someone asks you your blood type they don’t mean A, B, O, etc.  They want to know if you bleed maize and blue or scarlet and grey. I have been a loyal Ohio […]

Lalaloopsy Party!

Our little lady decided that for her 8th birthday she would like the theme to be Lalaloopsy.  I could not have been more excited. I had so much fun planning this party with my little lady.  She decided on the food, beverage, and craft and then I took it from there. The girls arrived and we got […]

It really wasn’t about the Oreos!

It has been a crazy week at our house! We got rid of the toddler bed (no more babies or toddlers…which has been difficult for me to process) and moved the kiddos furniture around. We took our Christmas Pictures (Oye…need I say more? Haha!). I started the Calendars of the kiddos that we give to […]
