Rain Rain, Go Away!

We’ve had a lot of rain lately, but it’s been out of control the last two days. We had torrential downpours Sunday night, causing massive flooding all over the area. Unfortunately, our house was no exception. After our monkey party, it started to rain. Hard. Mike went down to check out the new basement...

The Monkey Turns One!

Sam turns one! Sam turned one last week (6/22) but we had our party yesterday. I had a great time planning our “monkey extravaganza” — Mike will tell you it was over the top. I think I’ll chronicle my monkey madness in a separate post. The party was a blast tho. I wasn’t sure...

First, I have to give credit where credit is due. The majority of my inspiration stemmed from these two sites: MarthaStewart.com was the...

Welcome Home, Daddy!

After a LONG business trip to California, Mike finally came home.  It was a long ten days and we couldn’t wait to see him.  Unfortunately, we weren’t going to be home the day he got back into town, so we tried to make sure our likenesses were there to welcome him.  Check out the...

Never a Dull Moment …

Mike often says this, in reference to being married to me. “It’s not always easy, but there’s never a dull moment!” Well, the same holds true for his darling daughter, Wendy. Last night was an adventure in “wakings”. I put her down for bed around her usual time. However, she wasn’t sleepy (“I wakin,...

After much consideration and (some) prayer, we have decided that I will quit my job in August. It is exciting and scary. I gave my bosses my “two months” notice and they were great. I will stick around to help finish a project I had been slated to work on. I really loved my...

I’ve told many of our friends, but if you haven’t heard the news, mom’s cancer showed up again, after about 9 months of remission. It was hard to learn the news, but thankfully, mom is still feeling well and will not have to start chemotherapy right away.  I guess we are just trying to...
