My dad was super allergic so, understandably, we never had them in the house. I think I had a … Continue reading Pineapple Passion
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.

This week is inspired by our beautiful first born. Y'all, the sass. She is creative and bold and will talk to you aaaaaaaaalllllllllll day if you listen. She loves to learn and work hard, and she often speaks as though she's much older than her actual age of 4 (almost 5).

Click bait title, sorry... Not THAT "F" word. They're all under 5 and home with me most of the time, so we have pretty decent control over the profanity they're exposed to (although Cora has learned the "Name Game"--Cora Cora Bo Bora, Banana Fana Fo Fora...
