Wordless Wednesday: Easter Sunshine Babies

by katherine on April 3, 2013

I don’t have the words today…partly because I wrote a lot of them yesterday and partly because I’m way too excited about my trip to Arizona {!!!!} to concentrate on…well…pretty much anything. So today, you get a few more photos from the Easter Egg Hunt we hosted on Saturday. Reese & Loretta {Et from Ot […]

Unfinished Easter

by katherine on April 1, 2013

Growing up, every Easter was the same…there would be Easter decorations set out. Even an Easter tree made with blooming branches of the dogwood tree from our backyard. We dyed eggs a couple days before. My mom made us Easter dresses. My dad bought us all corsages to wear. Easter morning baskets were hid and […]

First Annual Egg Hunt

by katherine on April 1, 2013

So one night a couple of months ago, Andy & I were lying in bed and he said, “you know what would be fun?” Then I told him I was too tired. Then I laughed  and laughed, because sometimes I’m witty. Anyway, he told me he thought it’d be fun to host a big Easter […]


You throw them their very own party! Rylee had been counting down the days to valentines day for over a week. So when she ended up sick with RSV & pneumonia, I knew she’d be missing her school valentines party and I knew she’d be absolutely crushed. When I broke the news to her on […]


Baby’s First Christmas

by katherine on December 28, 2012

On Christmas morning after snapping a couple photos with my phone, Andy suggested before Reese open up her “big Santa” gift, we get out the real camera…since it’s her first Christmas and all. Oh…right… He actually snapped most of the photos on Christmas. While our festivities didn’t exactly go as originally planned, we had a […]

Christmas Hangover

by katherine on December 26, 2012

Just as fast as it came, it’s gone. Our day was nice. Rylee had a great day. That’s all that matters, right!? As an adult, I’ve come to really realize, just how much Christmas is for the kiddos. Today I’m at work and in a major holiday hangover haze. While I did manage to remember […]


Merry Christmas! 2012

by katherine on December 20, 2012

Dear Friends & Family, It’s kind of funny to think that what seems like not that long ago, I couldn’t wait for Christmas to get here and how looooong the days seemed to drag and now? Well, now every year I find myself wishing for just a day or two more to get everything ready. […]

Taking a Break

by katherine on December 18, 2012

This morning as I was comforting a sick kiddo after  I rocked the baby back to sleep for the third time, I started thinking about blogging. Because at 4:15 in the morning, after being up who-knows-how-many times, that’s exactly what makes sense. Only not at all. I mean…I thought of other things too…like how badly […]


Our Advent Calendar

by katherine on December 7, 2012

Last year I had big aspirations for an Advent Calendar. Then Advent came…and went. This year I was sure I wanted to get something done in time. I’d seen and heard of a lot of different Advent style calendars…some homemade, some store bought…some activity based, some all about gifts. I really want to make sure […]
