And what that means is that rather than actually eating real food, Kendall is mildly obsessed with eating the “condiments” – butter, jelly, syrup, whipped cream (yes she’s basically on the Elf diet).And what [...]

Happy New Year!


So, yeah, i know it’s a few weeks late. I like to make sure we are really firmly embedded in the new year before i start throwing out too many wishes for a new year that is happy. Just go with it. As most of you know around these parts – no news is usually [...]



Our church has challenged us to show our Hope this holiday season. If you’ve hung around these parts for any time at all – you know that Hope is kind of a thing here. Some days it’s the only thing. I could post so many pictures showing what hope means to me. But for some [...]

A Story.

This here’s a story all about how my life got flipped turned upside down….Jay. Kay. It IS however a story of the crazy day I had. I know how much you all love to laugh at/with me. So – in case you needed reassurance that you were actually a much better mother than me. I [...]
