Okay Uncle Jim....
You say you want to see reality on our blog so here it is.
This is what our laundry room looks like on laundry day! You know why I hate doing laundry? Because it is a task that is never FINISHED. Just when you think you have the last load washed, dried, folded and put away, (which took three days in the first place) you turn around and there is five more loads to do. Posted by Picasa

We Always...

What are your fondest childhood memories?
Odds are, many of them revolve around family traditions. I read somewhere that traditions are the "We always" of families, such as "We always have pancakes on Saturday mornings", or "We always go out for lunch after church on Sundays", or "We always bake cookies with grandma at Christmastime." These traditions are lasting impressions that will create memories for our children to carry into adulthood. So...I'm hoping that one day I will be able to overhear my kids saying, "Remember when we always used to have Halloween parties in our garage and we would each invite our friends and play games and eat tons of candy?"

So you wonder what our kids are doing in school these days? This is what Cooper came home with today....a Halloween costume! When mommy asked...Cooper when on earth did you have time to do this today? His reply....."Oh, at milkbreak mom!" He taped pieces of paper together to create his "Zombie" get up. Looks like we can take the $16.00 Ninja turtle costume back to the store! Posted by Picasa

A New Day

For a long time, I have wanted to create a website about our family, so others could check in on us and see what we are up to on a daily basis. goes. I am a technology newbie, but I will learn as I go. Who knew...when I was this little girl sitting on the steps of our house at Lake Lida....that I would have this life to write about!
