All This Green Has Gone To My Head ~

Now I am blogging about Christmas!!
You see…
I found this fun Holiday Magazine being featured on another blog…

Maybe the green paint fumes have gone to my head…
This can’t be …
I am sure I am not crazy…
I think…
See for yourself…

Twin Bobs~

There seems to be a standoff in my kitchen…
a war under the spoons…
I am not sure what to do….

I can’t take sides….

They both have good qualities…
They both seem to get along with Mr. Curtain…
I think??
wait…
is that a peace offering  in the middle…

uh oh…
don’t look now…
extra troops have arrived …

will green surrender??
Are you tired of this [...]

Home schooling with Large Print

In 2000 I gave birth to my sweet little girl… Abby.
Parenting one baby was blissful!
and nearly 2 years later in 2002 I gave birth to my sweet little man!
Now, I knew parenting would change my world…
and it did of course…
parenting requires you giving of yourself 24/7…
but…
Parenting with [...]

Jane Austen Ruined My Life ~

Well…
She didn’t actually ruin MY life…

the book…

That I bought….
a book…
because the title made me laugh!

Sneak Peek ~ Spring Is In the Air

My husband is funny. Really funny! He can make an unsuspecting crowd laugh before they knew what hit them. He can’t help himself… he is just naturally funny. The thing I love love about him is that his humor is naturally “clean” … pure hearted… and hits you in moments when [...]

After a few failed attempts at a fairly heart healthy meatloaf…
I have finally settled on this um… recipe…
if you can call my casual style cooking recipes!
(I don’t exactly measure!)
Wanna know [...]
