gage’s girl



Cannot say that I have ever been a huge Katharine McPhee fan.  I don’t think I watched that season of American Idol.  But I can tell you that in no uncertain terms Gage’s eyes popped out of his head when he walked passed this magazine at the Pediatrician’s Office.  The kid is ALL boy.  He asked […]

five cars



So our neighbor likes cars…nice cars.  He now has five.  They are a family of three.  So we heckle him from time to time.  As I pulled out of the driveway today with the kids, we saw our car-loving neighbor.  I rolled down the window to say hello.  Then out of the backseat chimes Campbell, “What […]

grandma



I know well enough that I am aging as the days quickly pass.   It is evidently clear to me when I look in the mirror every morning.  But the girls have started suggesting that I play the ‘grandma’ role.  Of course, when the twins play “Mommy-Baby”, Campbell is Mommy, Emerson is baby, and I guess […]

dancing with the STONERS



The holidays proved that we like to dance, especially after downloading two new songs to my iPod…Black Eyed Peas’ Boom, Boom, Pow and Lady Gaga’s Just Dance. Briggs suggested that we hold a ‘Dancing with the Stars’ competition.  He also threatened me NOT to post this video to Facebook to which I agreed.  He mentioned nothing about […]

a cabin trip



Instead of exchanging adult Christmas gifts, we decided to take a weekend trip to Wasatch Lake with the family.  Despite the cold, we had a great time and hope we can do it again in the future.  It was nice just to get away for a few days…away from the phone, computer and household duties.  […]
