Happy 4th of July!

We had so much fun this weekend, we could hardly stand it.   We spent about 100 hours at the pool it seemed, especially enjoying the 4th of July festivities there. Mike had a great time playing in their volleyball tourney, losing only in the finals.    The kids had a blast participating in the bike...

The Best Father’s Day Gift I’ve Ever Given

Technically, this should be the post about the wonderful Dad in my life  — either my own, or my beloved husband.   Both are quite stellar and I am so thankful for them.   Unfortunately, it’s late at night and my creative juices are running low, so  instead, I’m sharing about the gift I gave  the...

Mudders Day

I better get my Mother’s Day re-cap in before we hit Father’s Day. I had a lovely Mother’s Day thanks to a wonderful hubby and mostly wonderful kids (the kids are wonderful, they just have more moments of un-wonderfulness than their dad).    I generally don’t expect a lot from Mother’s Day — a chance...

Valentine’s Greetings from a Curmudgeonly Slacker

Today is Valentine’s Day.  The big VD. (har har har). In light of that, I should be sharing sweet sentimental tributes to my loved ones.  Or clever crafts or foods.  Or big plans to celebrate the big day. But … I’ve got to confess.  I got nothing.   Although I had plans to decorate and...

3rd Annual Christmas Cookie Party

Last night, I hosted my third annual Christmas Cookie Exchange party.  It’s become a tradition that I look forward to each year. I always host the party the Monday before Christmas — it gives me the weekend to cook and clean, and once I’ve gotten everything ready for the party, I feel like my...

Fun on the 4th

Our 4th of July Sunday was super low-key.  We went to church, came home and napped, and then headed over to a friend’s house for dinner and fireworks. The kids had fun running around in the backyard. All the kids (and a certain Dad) enjoyed a Popsicle. The cupcakes were yummy too. As it...

Easter

We had a lovely, low key Easter. We dyed eggs the night before.   We almost skipped it, but the kids had a blast, so I’m glad we made the time.  I never got around to buying the PAAS kit, but it turns out that the food coloring dyes I had on hand worked just...

Happy Maewyn Socket Day!

Round these parts, we take a low-key approach to St. Patrick’s Day.  We wear our green, but don’t do any carousing at the local pub. We did have a green dinner – Tex-Mex Americana style: Guacamole burgers (minus the bun, cuz I was out), french fries, and broccoli.   It all kinda cancels out, right?...

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope you had a nice day – we did.  Ours was a low-key kind of day.  We don’t make a big “to do” about Valentine’s – my big thing was having a V-Eve party the night before.  We are trying hard to crunch our budget and reduce spending, so neither of us spent...
