Wow, this morning was Burke’s FIRST DAY of KINDERGARTEN!  We had to wake up a little bit earlier than we have all summer.  As usual, Mallory was ready to be awake and up, but it took the boys a little bit longer. I made Burke’s lunch last night before I learned that they wouldn’t be […]

Blake woke up super early on his birthday, and I snuck out of our room to greet him in the hallway and tell him that “Quick, let’s get on your sweatshirt and boots, we’re going to get donuts!”, to which his response was “What?  Donuts?  No way!”.  Gosh, this guy is so fun. So, we […]

I still can’t believe that we actually pulled it off….and I think we commented on this exact fact at least a few times over the last two days….but we got five of our Hens families together for New Year’s Eve in OC.  We were only missing Aunt Emmy.  🙁  There were 10 adults and 14 […]
