We put the weekend on the calendar and were so excited to spend some time with the O’Neils.  It’s been a year since they moved from right around the corner, and we were in some need of some quality time.  After it taking 4.5 hours for a 2 hour drive, we made it to their […]

Dear Mallory, Four whole months have gone by, and you’re not really such a newborn anymore….you’re a full fledged baby.  You are the sweetest little joy and we just love you so much! At your 4 month appointment, you weighed 15 pounds 2 ounces and measured 24.75 inches.  This is the 75% percentile for both […]

We were told that we should come to preschool pickup early today as the kids had some things that they wanted to give us Moms.  What a fun surprise they had in store for us. The kids gave us pretty flower bouquets, completed a survey, “All About My Mom”, and made handprints too! It was […]

I love being part of the SBMQG.  One of the things that we do each year is make quilt for Fostering Friends.  I decided at the very last minute that I wanted to make one to participate in this giving. I used a jelly roll that I was given that was all batiks and blacks, […]
