A Day in the Life…

Steamboat in March!

| March 31, 2014

We took an extended weekend to Steamboat with Jon’s family!  And it was nice!  Good time to relax, not worry about school or schedules…  It’s nice to just be a family hanging out!  And we did some fun stuff too!  We went to a tubing hill in town, ice skating and plenty of swimming in […]

The Cardboard Box…

| August 30, 2013

We got a new lawn mower… Nothing is more fun… Than a cardboard box… and a good friend!                    Pretty much love her face… Sometimes as a mom, you just have to go with it…

A New Addition

| August 14, 2013

Thanks to a friend lacking some room, we are borrowing (maybe permanently) a piano!  B has loved practicing on it and even usually wants to play more songs than required when he does practice!  M likes playing it too :)  B’s teacher even said she could tell that he’s been practicing on a real piano… […]

It’s Fun to Be Young

| August 12, 2013

Do you remember all the silly things you did as a kid but it seemed normal at the time?!  :) Like letting your 6 year old neighbor (because 6 is way old!) dress you up like Prince and Princesses with make-up, including your hair… Yes, that is hot pink lip gloss on my son… and […]

Always Outdoors

| August 2, 2013

Summer fun, hanging out outside!  I get tired of holding this little chubby monkey… Here, have a seat, D!  Mara loved it.   Our neighborhood friend, Ayslee!  She has the most beautiful eyes!

Happy Valentine’s Day

| February 26, 2013

Kids {loved} putting their Valentine’s together this year.  Last year, it was a chore for Breyton to write his name on all of his cards but this year he loved every minute!  I gave him his list of friends and he went to work.  Of course his cards were Cars themed and Mara’s were “princess.”  […]

F is For Frog (& Fish)

| February 5, 2013

This week we’re learning about frogs (& fish for Mara).  They remind us to use our tongues wisely.  I was excited this week because we would be getting two new friends in our house — Meet Charlie and Charkie!  Guess who chose names?  :) Here’s a better picture of, umm, one of them…  :) They […]

Discovery Science Museum

| January 12, 2013

In need of something to do on a cold day, we all headed to the new Discovery Science Museum for the afternoon. After looking around a bit, the kids settled in to their favorite areas… Mara loved making the beach balls float on air.  Breyton liked the music areas.  They both loved the “tornado” – […]

C is for Cow

| December 26, 2012

“God’s word helps me grow.” That’s what we learned about in school 2 weeks ago!  We’ve been plugging along in My Father’s World curriculum this year!  It’s been good and a lot of character growing at home!  This particular week we learned all about cows and dairy products… So what did we do?  We made […]


| October 27, 2012

Had Breyton’s Halloween piano party and recital today.  They were both excited to wear their costumes and get some early candy!  B liked having a sheep to shepherd!  :)  Our neighbor had given us the sheep costume, so we came up with the pair! They got to play some games and then all the kids […]

Little Olympians…

| August 12, 2012

Has anyone else’s children been affected by the Olympics?  Mine have been creating several “couch cushion courses” for gymnastics, tumbling, and in general, craziness!  :) Here’s the breakdown – Breyton – Good beginning form with a perfect tuck position. Release with beautiful legs together and pointed toes.  Arms ready for coming landing. Great form. Landing […]

Wyyyy – Oming

| August 12, 2012

We went for a brief visit to see Great Granddad and Great Grandma Alice!  We road-tripped with my very own momma! We had an exciting encounter with a deer on the way there, but my steadfast husband was driving and he kept us from danger!  Just some fun swerving… We got to see Yellowstone and […]

Happy 4th of July 2012

| July 9, 2012

We had a great BBQ at our neighbor’s house – with Will and Teva!  They know how to throw a great party!  Complete with kiddie pool and bounce castle! Once I finally got my kids to sit for a minute, Mara was being shy and cranky, but B was happy to cooperate.  So, this is […]

Breyton’s First Piano Recital!

| June 11, 2012

Yesterday was Breyton’s first big piano recital!  He worked for over a month to memorize his song, the theme song to Blues Clues!  He played at the Rialto Theater in Loveland. The theme of the recital was “Grease.”  You wonder where they play Blues Clues in Grease too?  Well, turns out none of the kids […]
