Another Toe Woe…Or How Benjamin Was “Framed”

Last Friday, as we were preparing to head out the door, I heard a thud in the upstairs hallway. I yelled, “Is everyone okay?” Benjamin uttered (as he hopped downstairs), “Uh, no, not exactly. A picture frame just fell on my toe…and it really hurts!” His answer, combined with a sweetly squeamish niece yelling about […]

Happy Birthday, Whataburger…60 years!

What?…wear orange…get free Whataburger! What do you know…we’ll be there!

In “Cow”g-nito: Our Third Annual Cow Day at Chick-fil-A

We were going to be out of town for “National Cow Apreesheashun Day” at Chick-fil-A. Anyone who knows us, knows that we are big fans of Chick-fil-A (See other blogs for more proof). On the second Friday in July, Chick-fil-A gives you a free full meal for dressing like a fool full cow, or a […]

Oh No…The Big 40!

The summer provides me with more time to blog, as we only do school for half of a day. So, I thought I’d go back and blog about a few things that I missed in the busyness of the end of the school year. Back in March, my sweet husband turned the big 40! We […]

Duct Tape To The Rescue

Paige wrote about our first experience with the breaking of a fluorescent light bulb last night in her post Light Saber vs. Light Bulb.

Big Surprise on the Prairie/Meeting Melissa Gilbert

“If I had a remembrance book, I would surely write about the day we came to Plum Creek”(opening quote by Laura as Little House on the Prairie series began in 1974) Thankfully, Laura Ingalls Wilder shared her life memories with the world through the “Little House” books. This blog has been sort of a “remembrance […]

Happy B-day, Dad!

My dad is one of those men who isn’t afraid to try anything, and he isn’t afraid to share new wisdom that he gains along life’s way. I love those qualities about him. Recently, one of my dad’s life experiences  involved trying new things (like a roasted jalapeno…pronounced ha-la-pain-yo), and learning new things. (You are […]

Strawberry Picking

Believe it or not, we were wearing jackets when we went strawberry picking last week (April 27)!  On a day like this…simple pleasures…who would want to check their cell phone, right? Well, Paige has more to say about our day in her post. What a “berry” nice day it was! We had a lovely time […]

We Did It!

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”        Isaiah 40:8 Earlier…back on January 5, we attempted to read through the Bible, as a family, for 90 days. Well, it took us 100 days, but by God’s grace…we did it, and it was such a blessing to our […]

The “Eyes” Have It!

Our four girls wear glasses. Thankfully, they are not the 3-D glasses (as seen in above picture). You see…BC and I started this family “tradition” of wearing glasses when we were kids. We think it is only a matter of time for our boys to continue the “tradition” (in the near, as opposed to far, […]
