We kept it small (three friends, plus Rosie) and hosted rainbow birthday sleepover palooza. (We should have made t shirts)Jury… Continue reading Happy 7th Birthday, Cece!

Only when I started uploading these photos did I realize that she somewhat resembles Rosie the Riveter… Continue reading Happy 4th Birthday, Rosie!

On Christmas Eve, we took the kids… Continue reading Christmas Morning 2017
Hi, friends! I hope everyone’s December is off to a merry (and not to stressy) start. Before I start posting all the holly jolly hoopla, I want to back up and get Thanksgiving recorded in the books because it turned out to be a special one.
