I STRONGLY dislike the process of cooking. For the first 22 years of marriage my husband did most of the cooking because he loves it and he is an amazing chef. We had a great thing going until he switched careers, which decreased his after work flexibility. That left me to cook. (Que the violin) Normally I look at a […]
This is how we do it. Dates with the g-babies are an event. We sang, danced, read books and I taught Kenna how to play Old Maid. I was so worried that Nomi would cry with her mama not being in sight but she did great and get big sister kept her entertained.
We made brunch for Tori’s birthday. The whole tribe (and a few adopted members) swarmed her home for a few hours. Ironically as I was thinking about what to say about my oldest I came across a draft in my blog that I had written for her birthday ten years ago. How crazy (and perfect) is time?! To my 16 […]
To my kindhearted, analytical, creative and intelligent daughter. I love the fun we have on our many mission impossible shopping trips. I love that other people can see your heart. I love your singing voice, (where did that come from?) I love your patience with your siblings. I love how you love Jesus. I love when you sing me songs […]
It is never going to make sense, seeing my little’s become adults. Jordan has officially joined the ranks! The transition from teen to adult appeared smooth to me although he may tell a different story. Jordan has always seemed like a young/old man to me. I remember holding him only a couple of hours after his birth and looking […]
Makena and Poppa MO play time. She has us all wrapped around her adorable finger. Loving this new season of grandparenting.
My 18-year-old is completing his required number of driving hours to be able to get his license. I am using his requirement to my advantage. He has been driving me around quite a bit lately. He has such high expectations of himself and gets frustrated with not making the smoothest stop or perfectly parking in between the lines. I often […]
Easter was such a beautiful, perfect day. Natalie and Kobe where baptized by our dear friends Philip and Danielle. Kobe requested to be prayed over for the gift of healing and then went outside and laid hands on all the neighbor kids. If only we all had faith like children. Thanking God for all of our blessings and for the […]
Weedon Island Preserve used to be occupied by Indigenous peoples for thousands of years. Now it is a beautiful nature preserve to Florida native plants and animals. The Cultural and Natural […]
Kobe, I am guessing, will probably be reading at an earlier age than his other siblings. Not because he is smarter, but because he has big sisters and brothers who […]
I love reading and enjoy sharing that love with my children. They see me laugh, cry or get angry while engrossed in my books. I will never forget the time […]
