Top Ten Thanks

Posted on

Every night, unless he is out of town, Jason and I are a tight team in the bedtime, tucking in the kids, routine.  At this stage, Ryan wants me most times and I won’t lie when I say, I’m eating up every single, “I want Mommy!” moment I can get because I know at some […]

10 Things I Hate About Me

Posted on

I just thought of that title so, either this list will be a piece of cake and I’ll need to make a part 2 and 3, or I will need to make some stuff up. My upper arms. My bent towards inconsistency. How my self-worth is so closely knit with 10 lbs of fat and […]

Your Peacock…Your Peacock!

Posted on

Let me see your peacock!I couldn’t resist. Unfortunately I’ve heard the song.  I have another post for another day regarding my affection for Katy Perry, but not today. Let’s just say, since I don’t really know what I’m doing before I go into a project like this, unfortunately I’m not able to write a DIY […]

Walking with my Mama!

Posted on

Today Emily and I are walking the streets of Denver in the Race for a Cure. We will walk with my mom, Bebe, a one year breast cancer survivor. We’ll also walk with my little sister Dana, and her step-daughter, Annie, and with thousands of others who walk for whomever it is they walk. Just wanted to […]

Boot Camp

Posted on

Emily goes to a fabulous school based on Outward Bound Expeditionary Learning style.  She just got back from 5th grade camp where they packed in and set up their own tents, dug their own latrine, and drank filtered water from a mountain stream. In addition to base camp set-up, they did high ropes, made their […]

Birthday Eve

Birthday Eve

Posted on

I started a tradition after Noah died to take a picture of Emily on the day prior to her birthday.  Let’s just say it was my feeble attempt to make time stand still in the midst of her speedy growth cycle.  It’s been fun to look back over the years and watch her grow. Here […]

Better Late Than Never?

Posted on

Well, I know Halloween and Fall Break were a while ago, but I thought I’d post some pics anyway so you can see the Adventures of Emily and Ryan.  We had an early snow so we pulled all the pumpkins into the front hall.  Ryan played “ball” with these every day until the snow melted. […]

Boobies

Posted on

I have to say, it is so very refreshing to be in a setting where, what was once private and hush hush, can be spoken of with earnestness, sincerity, and candid authenticity. (I know that is quite a list of words but Em and I have been reading the original Nancy Drew books, and boy […]

More summertime fun!

Posted on

Here’s a pic of Ryan sporting Em’s backwoods redneck teeth as he crawled around in his cute military style crawl: Em actually wore this set of teeth to the dentist recently…the dentist screamed and then couldn’t stop laughing! My kid is quite the prankster. *I actually didn’t realize Ry had a prune mustache until I […]

Making Out

Posted on

So, I used this as my title post here. But, it has a different meaning to me when it comes to these cheeks. Both sets of cheeks above are ones I don’t think I could get sick of smooching on… When I fell in love with Jason, I never imagined I could ever be in […]
