CHRISTMAS!!!!! We love Christmas. We love the entire Christmas season. The traditions, the decorations, all honoring the significance of Christ and the love we get to share. But today...let's talk CHRISTMAS MUSIC! In our house, Christmas music begins on the drive home from Trick-or-Treating. We know, we know. Some are very passionate about holding off … Continue reading Friday 5: Five Favorite Christmas Albums
A while back, we did a little feature on Walt and mentioned his "wonky" kidney. Since then, we have completed follow-up testing and have a little update to share. 1) God is Good Yes...yes. And to finish the expression, "God is good, ALL THE TIME. And all the time, God is good." But we'd like … Continue reading God’s Goodness and a Kidney
(Disclaimer: This post is just something I'm pumped to talk about as a parent. But it is graphic. If you don't like reading about bodily functions, maybe tune in to another post. But if you are in the trenches of potty training, or will be soon, this is FOR YOU! And you are probably already … Continue reading Adventures in Anti-Potty Training
Games are pretty much the best. We love all types of games: board games, virtual games, good ol' fashioned charades, anything that gets people together and having a good time. But games only go so far when the group begins to grow in size. This summer, we have spent tons of time with our youth … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Favorite Group Games
Oh my goodness. My sweet baby girl. She's 5! Something about being a whole hand makes her seem definitively, unquestionably a kid and NOT a baby. NOT a toddler. NOT little in any way. And I'm not sad. I need to correct this, because I think I've communicated this pseudo-sadness to some people. Because I'm … Continue reading She’s 5, and I’m not sad!
Meagan and I love road trips because it gives us time to talk about all sorts of things that don't really fit into our crazy, everyday schedule. Many times when I have been driving for a few hours we start to play the newlywed game (or Know Ya Boo...whatever you prefer) together to help me … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 things we taught each other to appreciate
I LOVE pineapples. I love the taste, the look, but especially the legend of their meaning. I didn't always love them. In fact, I don't think I liked them at all until I was an adult. My dad was super allergic so, understandably, we never had them in the house. I think I had a … Continue reading Pineapple Passion
Soooo...we're promising ourselves that this blog will again be more than just our lists of things, but tomorrow's Friday, so we're stuck for now! I just looked through our drafts, and we have 7 ideas, some with multiple components. It's just finding the time to flesh it out. Here are 5 other things we've been … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Stuffs We Been Up To
Another week?! Life is going super sonic right now. I know we just did a "kid feature", but now poor Walt is left out, and since his birthday is TOMORROW...we decided to highlight our youngest. It's hard to tangibly capture the personality of a baby, and he doesn't have any great quotes yet (Although my … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Whatabout Walts?
Hank feature! A few weeks ago we shared some of Cora's winning quotes, and this week we wanted to do the same for our Hankasaurus Rex. But as we talked about specific things he's said, we realized there's more of an essence we want to communicate. Hank is Hank to the extreme. In all of … Continue reading Friday Five: 5 Times Hank was
