Kitchen Remodel and Addition – We made it!

Back in 2000, we lived in a different house and had our kitchen there remodeled.  It took about 8 weeks and my oldest son was just about to turn one year old.  It was a very stressful experience and one I wasn’t ready to endure again anytime soon!  Good thing we waited 14 years before […]

Baseball Season is Over!

He has more self-confidence when playing this game when compared to soccer and it’s easy to see that he has really benefitted form this experience.

I also love that trophy / cupcake pic. Just gorgeous.

I think it’s wonderful that you don’t need their approval. Really! It rocked my world when my mil laid into me!
I’m so happy for you that you are unattached to their opinion, or others for that matter.
