Horray! It’s Christmas Day!

2014 12 25 Christmas

Orrr you know, two weeks after Christmas.  Same difference

Christmas morning is quite possibly my most favorite morning of the year.  Seeing the look on my kiddos faces when they wake me up is the stuff I dreamed about when I was younger and thought about what my kids would be like.  This year, they were kind and let us sleep in ’til about 7AM.  Kenz crawled in bed with us (like she does


Twenty Days

That’s how long it’s been since I’ve written a blog post — oops!

Forgive me?

Okay, good.

I won’t bore you and list out all of the reasons it’s been so long (you know, running a marathon, then a half 6 days later, work being insane, a sick kid, another kid out of school, birthday parties, weddings, family visiting, holiday parties).. okay, maybe I will.

Merry Christmas!

So, enjoy a little bit of Christmas in March courtesy of my mommy brain!

Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve!

We had a wonderful, relaxing day!  We made gingerbread cookies..

And Braden made Grandma Ruth his famous “Snack Salad”.  If you are at our house and Braden offers this delicacy to you, I suggest that you tell him you’re stuffed.  It’s interesting.. it’s a combination of Chobani Greek Yogurt, a Dora Yoplait, a cheese stick, and goldfish.  He thinks
