Easter Egg Hunt Party

Saturday, Adam’s buddies, Felicity & Elyse, helped their mom host an Easter Egg party.  Actually, considering that they are the same age is Adam, I think their contribution was minimal.   It would have been nice if the weather had cooperated and we could have had it outside, but Amy did a nice job with...

Happy New Year!

We had a great time “ringing in the new year” with friends. I have that in quotes because we were back at home, with the kids tucked in their beds by 9pm.  New Year’s celebrations tend to start and finish early when you run with the 8 and under crowd. We joined up with...

Both Wendy & Sam’ preschool class had Christmas programs in mid-December. Sam’s class just held a small to do in his classroom. All the kids were dressed up as characters from the  nativity – Sam was a  Wise Man. The kids did about two minutes of songs – very cute (see video, if you...

Who’s cooking Christmas dinner?  (raises hand). I feel like I’ve been slow to get started this December, but the menu is finally set, the groceries shopped, and much of the prep work done!  This year’s menu is not too different from the last few.  We like what we like and don’t want to mess...

Concierge Christmas Trees

Last Saturday, we embarked on our annual tradition of selecting our Christmas tree. In years past, this tradition has involved driving to a cut-your-own tree farm, wandering around the woods in the brisk cold air, while I systematically rule out every tree in sight.  After tromping around for a while,  I come to realize...

Christmas Things I Love

I have been on the hunt for a good advent calendar for a long time.  Last December, I saw something I liked, but it was $40 and I hoped to find it on clearance after the holidays.  It never went on sale, and since I haven’t see anything else I like as much, I...

Thanksgiving – Country Style

For most of our marriage (maybe all?) we have celebrated Thanksgiving with both sets of parents/grandparents.  They have taken turns hosting and it is always a great time of fellowship.  One of the things Mike & I are so thankful for is having two great sets of parents who like each other and get...
