Since school has started back up, I have the duty of sorting through the children’s school work. I have learned to keep the art, creative stories, etc. Currently all of Jacob & Jadyn’s work is being stored in a plastic container in the garage… boring. With Tommy making scribbles too, I aim to try one of … Continue reading

A gift

This quote warmed my heart a little… a few days ago I was out in the park with Tommy. He loves to explore! Searching for treasures, or hiding spots maybe. Following closely behind, I became the recipient of rock after rock. I smiled then ditched the rock only to receive another one in its place. Then I thought … Continue reading

Homemade baby food

I cannot believe that my boy is almost 18 months of age. Time is flying by and I want to stop the clock sometimes. I love that he shares the same meals as mom and dad. He gives a “yum” after taking a moment to really taste a new pasta dish, baked treat, etc. Although … Continue reading

Homemade applesauce & mini apple muffins

Making homemade baby food is simple and nutritious. Over the past year, my little boy has eaten mainly homemade… especially puréed fruit and vegetables. Applesauce is easy to make and can be used in many different recipes. One recipe Tommy loved are these mini apple muffins (a sweet idea for older babies). Applesauce: apples, peeled and cored (I … Continue reading

Mother’s day

I hope everyone had a lovely mother’s day! We shared small adventures, big laughs, played with cars and trucks, went to sleep… woke up & decided to do it all over again! I wouldn’t have it any other way. Except having my mom here to share the day. Thank you Jason for helping to make my … Continue reading

My little boy’s first birthday was a special celebration… family and friends joined us for the evening. A suite at the Aliante Station Hotel in Las Vegas was our destination for the party. Decked in espresso shades of wood, olive greens with hints of orange. Perfectly matching the decor I made for his celebration. Love … Continue reading
