Feeling at Ease


Now that we as a family have been on our own for a couple of weeks, and now that meals are no longer being brought over – it’s time to get settled into our routine. I must say, two weeks ago I was a little hesitant, but as of the end of last week, have

Update on Our Family


I know, I know – it has been a while since I’ve posted anything – and I’m getting calls about when I’m going to post more – especially pictures of this precious boy!! I’ve now posted 2 sets of photos that can be found under our family photo section of our children – one is

All Gone


I have a cute short story to share – we’re sitting at the dinner table tonight and Noah toots and says “toot, toot”. A few seconds later you can see he’s trying to toot again. This time he fails, and he looks up at all of us and with all seriousness and a wave of

Fun Time with Brother Scott


We’ve had a wonderful Christmas celebration week! My parents came in on the Friday before Christmas and then my brother, Scott came in on Sunday.
