Being sick as a mother is the pits. It’s even more of the pits when being sick lasts almost 3 weeks. Last week I was bed bound for two days. David took care of a lot while I was down for the count but there was still a lot that fell off the wayside. Mainly… Continue reading Sick
Fall has got to be my favorite season. Fall, in my book, is the best part about October plus October is all about Halloween. We have been experiencing all of the rain we should have gotten during the summer. This morning we went to Gabriel’s soccer meet. Even though it was raining the kids still played… Continue reading Happy October 1st!

He was bigger on collecting the cards, I didn’t as much since it was an expensive hobby. When we found out… Continue reading We Pokemon Go.
7 years ago today we were married. We’re not too much older now but looking back we were so young when we decided to start our family. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

A special moment with great-grandpa. These are the moments we cherish for our boys. We are very lucky to have my grandparents around to share their wisdom and love with the boys.
