Things that embarrass us, as kids.

Go Go Power Rangers…. Aghhhh…Nick, Rita are you alright? FINE! You shouldn’t have called your friends. Meta Core, Mega Zore….it’s time for the selection ceremony….Agh……My name is serpentine and I’m here to destroy the world… These guys are in big trouble… we gotta do something… This is what I’m listening to in the background as I’m typing …

Bowtie Lasagna

I was talking to my friend Ree, (The Pioneer Woman) the other day. She said ‘Deb, you just have to try this recipe because  it is quick and easy and I know you like recipes like this.”  And I was all, “OK, I will try it – thanks so much Ree!” We talked a little …

Kids are so much cuter after they’ve gone to bed

I really hate to admit this…but sometimes I dread it when I have to go pick the kids up at school. Bad huh? It’s not that I don’t miss them. I worry about them when they are not home. I even worry about them when David takes them to go run errands and stuff. I …

Kitchen Remodeling – revamped island

I’m so excited my friends! My kitchen remodeling project is done. Now I have more counter space and since we always do buffet style, it gives me more room to spread the food out and also the plates as I’m fixing them for the kids. Hubhunk also made a side for bar stools so we …

I hate homework and think kids should not have any

Homework for k5 is really just homework for parents, isn’t it? I think I am doing quite well so far. I even got a smiley face on Luke’s paper yesterday. Tonight,  he didn’t know how to write Buzz Lightyear, but since that is his favorite toy, he needed to write it in the “about me” section of …

Spam and all its “professional” glory.

Have you ever paid close attention to your blog spam comments? If not, you should. Because it’s fun, in an irritating sort of way. Since moving to self hosted word press, there are many blog maintenance things I am responsible to take care of myself. One of which, is cleaning out my spam folder. I don’t know why …

Four is NOT the magic age

Five is not the magic age either. If I read one more “advice” tip from a multiple parent about “it gets better as they get older” or “when they turn four your life will get remarkably better”, I am going to hunt them down. Oh yes, I will hunt you down!  People think I’m crazy …

Boating and 4-Wheeling

We went boating today. Sort of… Then we rode 4-wheelers Kind of… Who says you have to have dirt and water? We didn’t. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’ve learned some things recently. One big lesson is this. When you start making a pie, and you pour your apple pie filling in the crust and realize you need another …

You shall sleep on the couch tonight

I just have two words to say. Dog House.  OK, I just can’t stop at two words. I’ve got to tell you what the main man did this afternoon. Let me set the scenario. I only slept 5 hours last night. And during that 5 hours I woke up a lot. You see, my brain …

Leo is in New York, with Patty!

Oh my…where so I begin? You must go over and check up on Leo’s travel story on Patty’s blog, Another Cookie Please.  He has had quite the visit so far and with more fun in store before he moves on with this journey. I have a feeling he may not want to leave Patty. She …
