Only one more day in December and then it’s on to the new year! Before we send Cece back to school and our tree gets taken down, I’d like to share a bit from our Christmas.We spent the weekend before Christmas celebrating with Joe’s family in St. Cloud. On Christmas Eve, we took the kids… Continue reading Christmas Morning 2017
Happy Holidays from our family in Hudson! I feel as though this December flew by faster than any other year. I hope you have been enjoying your families, all of the festive traditions, and of course, the holiday food! We’ve gotten around to most of our usual holiday activities and have adopted a few… Continue reading The Christmas rush is through… almost?
Today our family saw the big guy in red! Even better, it was a very quick, non-stressful, no-tears experience! Santa was very friendly, the girls were very talkative and Cece informed Santa of the holiday décor situation in our house (“Now, we have two trees. One upstairs and one downstairs. And we have stocking downstairs,… Continue reading Santa Sighting 2017!

After spending the last 9 Thanksgivings in Minnesota,… Continue reading Thanksgiving 2017
Rosie is easily the person I spend most of my time with. Although it can be challenging and we occasionally have crying during the day (which could be either of us), I’m sure it’s good for me. I’m a super sensitive Sally and I think Rosie toughens me up a little with her straight-forward and… Continue reading Deep Thoughts with Rosie Grace
So winter has come barging in on fall’s territory with quite the attitude! I’m deeming the merge of the two seasons as “finter.” (I’ve checked. It’s a thing. Or at least a hashtag) The above photo was taken the day after Halloween. Nice, right? Even though low temps and the occasional snow have kind of… Continue reading “Finter” Fun
I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year. Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All
Hi, friends! Today I bring you the latter half of summer. It has come to my attention that even with the hot weather, I can’t deny summer’s end. It’s the end of September, Cece has already been back to school for well over a month, and there’s pumpkin spice coffee creamer in our refrigerator. So,… Continue reading Summer Happenings 2.0
“My biggest dream come true is my daughter; I’ve wanted her since I was a little girl.” (^^^Shoe credit goes to Grandma Pat!^^^) On my to-do list this summer was to take updated photos of the girls that I could frame, give to grandparents, etc. I finally got around to it this morning! I also… Continue reading Six and Three
The midpoint of summer has arrived and although I feel like we’ve done so much, I know there’s still more to squeeze in! Above is a photo of Rosie borrowing her friend’s motorcycle and riding into summer like the coolest cat you’ve ever seen. Here is everything that’s gone on so far and the photographic proof… Continue reading Halfway through summer!
