In a Blink of an Eye~ Logan Graduated!
Everyone’s heard the old adage in a “blink of an eye” especially in reference to growing children. In a “blink of an eye” they’ll be walking, in a “blink of an eye” they’ll go to kindergarten and in a “blink of an eye” they’ll graduate from high-school. I took this into consideration as my children grew, reminding myself constantly through the…
Peyton Left to Her Own Devices!
My nineteen year old daughter Peyton loves to sing and sounds quite lovely. She’s fortunate she did not inherit her chops from me, as I’m literally the most awful singer on the planet. I’m so pathetic my hubby jokes that I can’t even hold a tune when humming or whistling, now that’s bad with a capital B………A & D! Peyton especially enjoys singing when my hubby…
Funny of the Day!
OMG, what am I going to do with my teenage son! I made homemade chicken & dumplings for lunch today. My son beckoned me to the bathroom door where I heard him eating, so I asked “Logan are you eating chicken & dumplings while in the bathtub?” He answered “Yep, can you bring me more!”…

What do the words-Morbid, Brownies & kids have in common?
While visiting the cemetery today, I shared my “Funeral” wishes with my teenagers. “When I croak, I want cremated & sprinkled in areas that are special to me.” (not legal-shh) My daughter was totally against the idea of me being cremated – a little shocked because she revels in torturing me here on earth/why not in death- just…
Peytons Accomplishment verses Logan’s surprise at the DMV

Our “NUN” Car Convo
While driving to dinner this evening, I noticed what I thought to be a Nun through my rear view mirror. I said to my kids “Is that a nun behind us?” no I thought– it couldn’t be, she has flashy earrings on. I also don’t think nuns would have something hanging off their rear view mirror, unless it was a cross! “My…
