January 2020

To start with, I almost typed “January 2017” as the title to give you an idea just how my brain is functioning lately… not exactly all cylinders are firing and I attribute that to the cute nine or so pounds of noise that I feed cart around daily. (And nightly.) It’s been a challenge to…

April Snow Showers

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…

Snowed In

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…

January 2019 Happenings

Hey, everyone! Greetings from survival mode! January has been brutal, right? At least these past few days have. Here are a few of the things the kids have been up to since the start of 2019. There’s definitely been a lot of indoor activities, such as art projects and playing with all of the glorious…

2018 in Review

Cheers to the new year! So many good things are upon us, I can feel it! But first, a 2018 recap. The highlights, the good photos, etc. before we are in full 2019 mode! Probably the most significant thing we did last winter was adopt Zuzu. She has been such a weird and wonderful addition…

Sweets and Santa

I just wanted to write a short and sweet post about some of the small, but sweet, holiday happenings around here. As mentioned in my last post, we kept our favorite traditions alive including making gingerbread houses. With the girls getting bigger, this was really a very hands-off project for me. The only thing helpful…

Nov + Dec 2018

  Happy Holidays! We are in full cozy-mode around here. I don’t know about all of you but I seem to fluctuate daily between experiencing pure joy this Christmas season and also being totally overwhelmed about all the things a parent needs to do and be during the holidays. These feelings seemed to be heightened…

March Madness

Hey everyone! We might (might) be almost finished muddling and shoveling our way through “spring.” It’s been so ridiculous, hasn’t it? Fortunately, you can still buy yourself bouquets of fresh flowers and wine, even when the weather is awful. I don’t fancy myself a complainer. But seriously. All I want to do is take these…

Jan + Feb 2018

Hi there! We are two months into 2018 and for the most part, I’m liking it. It has been a lot of time indoors, a lot of shoveling (thanks, Joe!), washing off germs, and much cozying up by the fireplace. As it happens every year, I’m anxious to leave winter behind and move onto spring….

Scenes from Winter Break

Well, hi there! I hope 2018 is off to a great start for everyone. Christmas is now officially a thing of the past for us now as our d├ęcor is all packed up and Cece is back to school. However, I’m going to backtrack over to winter break so it’s all in the books. As…
