A Sweet Tradition Continues…

                                             Ever since the early days of mine and Kenny’s vacations, along the trip we would stop by at least one ice cream shop.  Preferably a small town, obscure little shop rather than some big chain store.  Although in a pinch Cold Stone Creamery can’t be beat.  As the years have flown by and we are …

Trick-or-treat: Our Halloween Costumes

We had a really fun Halloween this year.  In years past I’ve tried to make all of our costumes (and when I say “I”… I really mean 20% me and 80% my Mom… she’s a sewing genius).  This year I took the easy way out a little bit, mostly buying costumes or using things we …

McKayla's Week 6

I remember week six being a milestone with McKenna.  The first five weeks were so challenging and by the sixth week things were FINALLY starting to settle into place.  It has been so much easier this time around with McKayla.  I don’t know if that’s because she’s a more mellow baby or if it’s because …
