Crock-Pot Wednesday #9

Our family will have a full night of festive activities,and when we return home (on a sugar-high, no doubt), we’ll enjoy a yummy bowl of soup. Even though we’ll have the option of eating supper at a couple of these festivities, I have a strong feeling the kids will be way too busy to even […]

Martha Stewart Would Be Proud

In the past 24 hours, we’ve carved pumpkins AND baked cookies. Oh, my, that’s way more craftiness than I’m accustomed to, especially in such a short period of time. Let me just go ahead and get this off my chest (and conscience). We’ve NEVER carved a pumpkin with our children until last night. I know. […]

Home Sweet Home

I always enjoy time away to rest, relax and rejuvenate, but there’s nothing quite like coming home. Don’t get me wrong….I definitely need a break from the daily grind every now and then. And, as much as I love them, I sometimes need a break from my three precious younguns. But it was a sweet […]

And We’re Off!

After making LOTS of written notes(’cause I’m a bit OCD), organizing schedules and carpools, making and freezing some dinners, and even baking a Bundt cake (can’t help it…I’m a Southern girl), Shannon and I are off on a trip with some friends. We’re looking forward to a few days of “R&R,” good food, plenty of […]

Wise Beyond Her Years

Someone in our home is looking a little wiser and more studious these days. Yes, Anna Katherine now holds the esteemed title of Nearsighted. I have to say, I felt like a really, really bad Mama when I realized the extent of her nearsightedness. One eye was pretty good, but the other….let’s just say there […]

The Pumpkin Patch

I had the privilege of going on yet another field trip yesterday. Last Friday I was able to go with Anna Katherine’s 5th grade class on a very calm, educational outing. Yesterday was an entirely different scenario all the way around, yet it was so much fun! Ben’s Pre-K class, along with 3 other classes […]

Crock-Pot Wednesday #8

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Oh-So-Yummy (And Easy) Pot Roast 2-3 lb. chuck roast1 packet dry Italian dressing […]

Catching Up

Has it really been almost a week since I last updated? Where DOES the time go? Well, I can tell you my days have been anything but boring over the past week. I usually work outside of the home on Fridays, but last Friday I wanted to go with Anna Katherine on a school field […]

Parenting By The Book

This weekend was busy. Hence, the very reason I haven’t posted on the blog over the past three days. Shannon left on Friday at noon to go on a weekend hunting trip in the Delta. Despite the fact that the temperature felt more like July than October, he and his buddies were determined there were […]
