Share what’s good with Welch’s

Tweet I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Welch’s. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. When I was growing up sitting down together for a meal was something that we did every evening. Same time, same place. Together as a family we ate dinner and talked about…

Wordful Wednesday – Family Pictures

Tweet It was brought to my attention by my kids (I already knew… I did really) that we hadn’t had family pictures taken in several years. Six years to be exact. Now, in my defense we have gotten the kids pictures taken several times over these past six years…. individually and together. I guess getting…

I see the boy

Tweet He’s growing up so quickly that I don’t know how the time has passed by me so quickly again (yes again… time flew by with the girls too). Where did my cuddly little baby go that was here yesterday and where did this little boy come from today? I know that he’s growing up,…

Tweet When I was pregnant with Andrew my husband and I (and the girls too) went back & forth so many times that I wasn’t sure if we would ever pick a name for him. We just couldn’t decide what to name the baby or I should say that we couldn’t agree on a name….

My Grandma

Tweet Her family came over from Scotland and settled in the thumb region of Michigan and lived there for more years that I can remember. She lived a life that was long and full and she loved every minute of it. Parents, siblings, husband, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren were all part of her life…

The year in pictures

Tweet While going through my reader the other day (Yes, I do go through it on occasion) I happened upon a post from Ashley from My Front Porch Swing and then the same one from Jessica over at Four Plus an Angel and decided to play along! I mean 12 pictures or my favorite posts…

On being a mom

Tweet Before I was a mom there were very few things that I worried about. I was young, carefree, and was enjoying my life from one minute to the next without pondering the future too much. I wandered the mall with friends, shopped, and ate lunch where ever we wanted while evenings were spent bar…

Andrew, Santa, and I

Tweet Every year we pass by the center of the mall where Santa has set up shop and is surrounded by a magical winter wonderland. I watch the families as they wait patiently or not so patiently for their turn to talk with Santa so they can explain those bad moments, elaborate on the good,…
