Guess who is officially SOOOO big? Yes, Ares. Good guess. Man, I think having a two-year-old boy might do me in, but dang I’m excited to be around for this. (You guys can just grab the popcorn and gather round ye olde blog to read about the things he’s been up to and hear about… Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday, Ares!
On April 30th, Ms. Cecelia Ray Gaetz turned eight! It was over a week ago, but I am currently still processing this milestone. What’s she like at eight-years-old? She can be frequently found zooming around our neighborhood on her rollerblades, snuggling with our dog Princess Zuzu, reading Dog Man and Junie B. Jones books under… Continue reading Happy 8th Birthday, Cece!

Hello, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend, especially with the sunshine! We started out our weekend with our neighborhood’s egg hunt on Saturday morning. For the past two Easters that we’ve lived in Hudson, the Easter activities got moved to people’s garages because of crummy weather. It was great to turn our… Continue reading Easterly Events 2019
Just like last April, winter put on a dramatic grand finale which our kids have been thrilled about. (I mean, school got cancelled for the girls one more time and Ares sure loves watching the plows.) Here are a few pics I quickly took yesterday afternoon. I didn’t want my camera getting wet, but I… Continue reading April Snow Showers
It sure feels good to see the mountains of snowbanks finally melted and being on the verge of opening our windows and wearing flip-flops again. Spring, you rascal, you never arrive a moment too soon! Before I quickly end up six months behind in posting, I’d like to give a recap of the past two… Continue reading February & March 2019
Last week we took the kids on a quick four-day getaway to Wisconsin Dells during the girls’ spring break. We stayed at Great Wolf Lodge where we haven’t been before. (And it turned out being really great for the 2-7 age range that we have.) We were pretty much phone-free during all of our water… Continue reading Great Wolf Getaway
A little less than two weeks ago we celebrated Rosie turning five! It’s been a wild ride having her with us for half a decade now and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Her fifth birthday started out with 4K getting cancelled in the morning, so she got to revel in her presents and… Continue reading Celebrating 5 Years of Rosemary Grace
About the last couple months… It’s been everyone’s favorite time of year, right? I have mixed feelings about January and February. I don’t love the short days and bitterly cold air and constant threat of illness, but I do love candles, flannel, the fireplace a-blazin’, and cozy blankets. I also appreciate that the holiday hustle… Continue reading Best Life Bootcamp
Winter, you win! We surrender! School has been canceled the last 7 of 9 days here in Hudson. I’ve been trying to put my finger on why this has been so challenging. Obviously, the severe winter weather makes it hard/somewhat dangerous to drive places and get out of the house. And the bitter cold has… Continue reading Snowed In
