Baking with my daughter

Pie and I have spent the last two days baking up sweet treats for Christmas. Instead of sharing every single recipe with you, I thought I would just share the pictures, and link to recipes similar to the ones I used. My only excuse for doing it this way is that I’m tired and lazy […]

Musical Talent – {almost} Wordless Wednesday

Last week, we attended our daughter’s very first group band performance! The Winter Concert featured her fifth grade chorus and band members. They played several short sets — and sounded really good for only having a few practice sessions under their belts! They finished up the hour long event with some wonderful holiday songs. “There’s […]

Random thoughts from me – Pie and hearts and thankfulness

I saw my daughter’s heart today. Well not literally. Pie had an EKG and an echo cardiogram this morning. Last Monday, out the clear blue, she fainted during gym class. She said she just felt weird and then everything went black and down she went. This is not normal people! Definitely NOT the call you […]

Random thoughts about my Christmas Tree – {almost} Wordless Wednesday

Sorry I feel wordy today, skip to the pics if you just want {wordlesss}. Our tree is up. I remembered to buy candy canes before Christmas Eve this year, go me! For some strange reason I keep thinking the tree is a heater. I randomly get up and go stand by it  several times a […]

Wordless Wednesday – Completely random

Pie’s hair grows s..l..o..w..l..y which means we haven’t had a chance to experiment with braids much until this year. She loved this messy sideways french braid, I thought it looked really sweet.   I do hereby command thee turkey to THAW!!   Pie crocheted this toy for Ginger all by herself while I was gone […]

Are we there yet? Wordless Wednesday #WW

We took a trip last Sunday. A long trip on a rainy, yet beautiful day. Way to be excited children *insert dramatic eye roll here* lol! I’ll tell you all about it soon! We managed to get a couple of pretty awesome wildlife photos! edited to add: It had absolutely nothing to do with Pepsi […]

{almost} Wordless Wednesday – Eleven and growing

We partied hard this past weekend to celebrate Pie’s eleventh birthday. We took a carload of girls out for a night on the town with stops to see Dolphin Tales 3D (loved it!), Pizza Hut (eh, they used to be better) and a late night treat at Coldstone Creamery (to DIE for!). Then after the […]

Wordless Wednesday – The Flutist

Pie has decided to play the flute in fifth grade band this year! I’m so excited for her, I know she’ll do well! We’re looking forward to listening to her practice… and practice… and practice. Well, maybe ;). “Music gives a soul to the universe” Plato

Back To School 2011- Wordless Wednesday

Summer is over. And it’s back to school. I love the quiet. But still miss these children who keep getting older. While making me feel even older. <3 …yep. I let Mr.T. dye his bangs. He’s 16, a good kid who does well in school and {mostly} listens to his parents. I think it looks […]

Float On – Quote

“Already we’ll all float on. Now don’t you worry, we’ll all float on. Alright, don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy. We’ll all float on, alright.” ~ Modest Mouse quotes

Sunflowers at Dusk – Wordless Wednesday

I am seriously in love with Pie’s latest photographs. She took about 30 pictures of the sunflowers we planted in the garden and most of them turned out beautifully but these two just make me stop and stare. So pretty! Happy WW!
