Airing Out

We had big plans for this weekend. But, you know the saying, “the best-laid plans of mice and men.” I may not live with a bunch of mice and men, but I have learned that with three kids, all plans are soft until the actual moment we arrive at said event. And then there’s no […]

Eighteen Months

Hot-Off-The-Grill Wednesday #2

Sorry for the delay in posting this recipe. Our Internet service has been down all evening. (I’m sure you’ve been sitting on the edge of your seats in anticipation!) Our friends, Kirk and Beth, shared this one with us. It’s delicious, light, and very easy to make. And I do believe it’s on the healthy […]

Just A Friendly Reminder

HGTV will be airing “my brother’s episode” (as I like to call it) of Designers’ Challenge tomorrow morning (Wed.) at 9:00 a.m. CST. I just set my DVR, since I’ll be working tomorrow. Grant actually brought a video of the show to my home when he came for a visit recently. He said I could […]

Prayers For The Chapmans

I realize most of you have seen the morning news, and like me, you are deeply heartbroken over the tragic accident that took the life of Steven Curtis Chapman’s five-year old daughter, Maria, last night. (You can read the story here.) As I mentioned in “Part One” of Our Adoption Journey, the personal testimony of […]

Hot-Off-The-Grill Wednesday #1

It just feels right to be back in my regular Wednesday routine. Actually, as far as church activities go, the routine ended for the summer break last week. No, we don’t stop having Wednesday night prayer meeting. That’s unheard of in the Southern Baptist Church, you know. We do, however, stop having children’s choirs and […]

While The Crock-Pot’s On Summer-Break, The Grill Will Be His Substitute

A couple of weeks ago, my brother mentioned to me on the phone that he was missing “Crock-Pot Wednesday.” (Of course, I’m chuckling as I type, because I have enough sense to know he was just being sweet.) But, surprisingly, I have come to realize that I’m actually missing it! I don’t exactly miss the […]

Happiness Is A Mouth-Full of Goldfish

“My Mama may think chocolate makes everything better, but she just hasn’t learned to appreciate the finer things in life…like goldfish crackers.”

Spring Recital ’08

Anna Katherine’s dance recital was the first weekend in May, and then her class was asked to dance at a local arts’ festival in our hometown this past weekend. Anna K. started taking ballet when she was almost 4 years old. I must say there’s nothing cuter than a bunch of 4 year-old girls twirling […]

Chocolate Makes Everything Better

It’s 10:00 p.m., and I’m finally sitting still for the first time all day. I was just telling another Mom at a birthday party this afternoon that I truly believe May is as busy as December. Our kids are in full swing with end-of-the-school-year activities. Not to mention t-ball and softball. So basically, the calendar […]
