Easter weekend turned out to be lovely in all sorts of ways. Even though it rained on Saturday morning and our neighborhood egg hunt became more of a mingle with the Easter bunny and friends at one of our neighbor’s houses (still complete with eggs, treats, and plenty of excited kids.), everyone still enjoyed themselves. On Saturday afternoon we… Continue reading Easter 2017
I’m happy to say that we’ve been out and about these past couple weekends and trying out a few new (to us) places. Now that it’s April and getting a little warmer, I don’t really think I can claim hibernation as my favorite pastime anymore. We recently went to the Can Can Wonderland in St. Paul for… Continue reading Out and About
Hello! It’s spring! (Or so I’m told. I’ll believe it when I see it/feel it/stop shivering/see the sun/etc.) We are only about six weeks away from welcoming baby no. 3 which means that I have been tired, scatterbrained, and not really blogging. (But I totally think about blogging all the time… that counts for something,… Continue reading March via iPhone
” A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.” Hello from Monday! Whether your weekend was productive, relaxing, or just plain busy, I hope you enjoyed it! Ours was a mixture of all those things. However, on Sunday Joe had work and it was my day to be home with the ladies. We stayed in our… Continue reading Sundays are for baking, art projects, and PJs!
Hi there! It feels good to be inching towards the end of winter and to start breaking out of hibernation. A couple weeks ago, we took an impromptu four-day trip to Wisconsin Dells. My sister even joined us for part of the vacation which made it extra wonderful. She’s also the reason we even have any… Continue reading Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)
Hello! I hope your Valentine’s Day is off to a wonderful start. I love any excuse for treat-making, card-sending, chocolate-eating, and decorating so I’ve always been pro-Valentine’s Day. This morning I snuck out of bed early to make Joe breakfast so he could wake up to the smell of bacon without burning his foot (Michael Scott, anyone?)… Continue reading My Valentines!
If you want to book a time to hang out with Rosie and Cece, you’ll have to do that weeks in advance because their social calendar has been booming as of late (mostly because of Joe). Last weekend he took each of the girls on a date to the location of their choice. Both girls… Continue reading So Many Dates!
Christmas felt pretty darn special this year. It was our first holiday celebrating in our new home (glad Santa was able to figure out that we moved!) and it was also the last Christmas we will be spending as a family of four. Lots of emotions and excitement across the board. Joe also magically… Continue reading Christmas 2016
Happy Christmas Eve Eve! Santa is the talk of our house (and not just when we are trying to encourage good behavior and listening, which I know is not how you are supposed to “use” Santa. But it kind of straightens everybody right up, so…) We made two attempts to see Santa this month. The first… Continue reading Hey, Santa!
Last night we got around to one of my favorite holiday traditions and we assembled and decorated gingerbread houses. I love how involved and enthusiastic the girls get about these kind of projects; there’s no time or desire to fight with each other. It’s excellent. This year was made even better by the fact that we had company and… Continue reading Gingerbread Houses
