Happy New Year From Our Little Family To Yours!!

We finally had our first photo(s) of all 7 of us taken on Christmas Day. It was about how you’d expect it to be for getting 5 kids, ages 5 & under, to all look at the camera and smile. Today we took down our Christmas tree. First thing Lil’ Man said when he gotContinue Reading

Merry After Christmas!!

Hope your Christmas was Merry & Blessed!! Ours was great! And crazy. And fun! And exhausting. Miss Boo says it was the “best Christmas ever!” And I’d have to agree. After all, I was able to get a picture of all the kids together.Continue Reading


I’m scared. I’m confused. I’m angry. My heart is breaking. Today, our sweet, happy, lil’ man was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis. I knew it was coming. I had detected it before he was even 6 months old. I had googled the light brown spots he had on his body as an infant & discovered they wereContinue Reading

I’m Snow White

Miss Cakes, our 3-yr-old is going through a princess phase. She loves all things princess. Her favorite Disney princess is Snow White, so she dressed as Snow White for halloween. For Christmas, she asked for everything Snow White. Most of what she received for Christmas gifts was Snow White. Somewhere between Christmas & the firstContinue Reading

Busy Busy Busy

My kids aren’t even in school yet, and summer seems to be the busiest time for us. Or maybe, life is just busy once you have four kids. Maybe it’s a combination of summer & four kids. Either way, I haven’t had a chance to post since our fourth little bundle of joy arrived. InContinue Reading

Five Years Ago…

…I married the man of my dreams. Our story, however, actually began 11 1/2 years ago. I really like telling our story, because it feels surreal – like a fictional book I would have on my bookshelf. It involves a boy admiring a girl from afar, and a girl admiring a boy from afar. BoyContinue Reading

the family manager creed

The other day, I picked up a few books at Barnes & Noble. I’m so excited to dive into them, and I just started readingĀ “The Busy Mom’s Guide To A Happy Organized Home” by Kathy Peel. I’m still in the Introduction, but I came across something I have to share with you. The author hasContinue Reading

Miss Boo :: four years of fun & love

Last weekend, my oldest turned four. I can’t believe how quickly four years can pass by, and how much can happen during that time. Just a few days before she was born, I was shopping with my mom at a party supply store… And then our whole world changed when we welcomed our sweet littleContinue Reading

a biter in our midst

Our 18-month-old is one of the most laid back, mellow kids I’ve been around. Since our three kids are so close in age, we’re expecting our fourth & our middle child is rambunctious, his calm & pleasant disposition has been a wonderful blessing. He loves to play with his sisters, but they see him asContinue Reading

we’re completely smitten

We brought our new puppy home on 1/1/11. She was exactly 2 months old. She’s a long-haired miniature dachshund. She’s absolutely adorable & fabulously sweet. And we are completely smitten… We named her Emmy – I suggested Emelia, but hubby thought that would be hard for kids to pronounce, so I said “What about Emmy?”Continue Reading
