Mid-Autumn

Mid-Autumn

First, our Halloween.  All in all, it was a good one.  Henry remembered Halloween last year (because who could forget his David Crowder awesomeness?!), but I don’t think he remembered the candy.  That will not be the case next year.  That kid loves his “nem-an-ems” and Skittles. I had big plans for a Clark Kent/Superman […]

Five (mostly BIG) Things for September

Five (mostly BIG) Things for September

Aaaaand…boom.  That is me, once again, failing to blog when real things are happening.  Each of these items deserves its own blog entry, and I hate combing through lovely pictures to find just one or two (or three…or four…) of each thing.  But!  We will never get caught up if I don’t, and they will […]

The Middle of October

The Middle of October

Just a couple of thoughts on this Sunday afternoon. H&L:  My kids are suddenly growing so fast.  This morning I somehow got caught up in reading old entries of this blog.  That seems a little narcissistic, I realize, but having this record of our little family for ourselves is my favorite reason for blogging.  Lucy […]

Friday Confessions

Friday Confessions

It’s been a dreary, rainy couple of days outside, and I know that if it goes on like this for long I am going to be tearing my hair out.  But truth be told, I think a couple stormy, cozy days inside are just what we needed.  If I had written this blog entry a […]

10.

10.

Jason was recently talking to someone who works at an organization that is now ten years old, and they said to him, “We’re not a start-up anymore.”  I liked that.  This marriage, too, is no longer a start-up but a real, true, decade-old one.  That’s nice to say, because it feels like it’s been ten years…mostly in […]

A Handful for August

A Handful for August

A Handful for August You will note, I hope, that I am now finally “caught up” for the summer.  Sure, spring once again passed by without much mention on this blog, but there are still 21 days left in August—an eternity!—so summer, at least, is not a complete loss. So where were we?  I think […]

A Handful for July

A Handful for July

A Handful for July So, the past two weeks started with jet lag and a very poor decision to try and potty train Henry, and they ended with me at the gym at 9 pm trying not to yell at everyone around me.  Not pretty.  This morning, however, both of my kids slept until 7.  […]

Midsummer

Midsummer

The past week or two have been kind of unpleasantly exhausting.  We’ve been on the go, I’ve spent too much time working, and Lucy has managed to wake up exactly 30 minutes before my alarm has gone off every morning.  Even the day my alarm went off at 5:20 a.m.  I’ve been am trying to […]

Closing Out May

Closing Out May

It’s 10:04 on the first night in five months when I haven’t had to feed a baby before bed.  I could have gone to bed an hour ago (!!) and yet.  Here’s a few things I have loved at the end of May: 1.  Jam.  I’ve been wanting to try canning for a few years […]

Easter Eve

It’s Saturday night and I have three drafts of blog posts sitting here, waiting to be finished, matched with pictures, and posted (why? Why is this so impossible for me??).  But this Saturday night is the one before Easter morning, and it begs to be acknowledged. Like my lead up to Christmas, my observance of […]
