Mama Needs a New Easter Dress

Snuck into the Keizer Station Old Navy this morning for a bit to preview their big dress promotion that starts today (check links in this post for prices).  I was thrilled to find my main spring weakness being featured. Eyelet! My tried and true Easter dress for years was actually a somewhat similar pink and…

Bored. Overtired. Typing. (When things get funny)

Last night was our anniversary. Eighth anniversary. This does not sound too impressive, but since we dated for 4 years before that…it kinda feels like forever. Forever in a good way.  Until your husband posts awkward pictures of you in your very early dating stages on his Facebook page and then writes a status update…

Happy 4th Birthday My Sweet Twins.

I can’t believe that today you turn four years old.  Four years ago today we became parents for the first time.  We went from having no children, to having two children.  We considered ourselves blessed to get to experience what it was like having twins.  Before you were born your Daddy’s common phrase was, “Can…

Christmas Card Time!

It’s that time of year again.  The time when we all bribe our kids in attempts to get the “greatest family photo of all time” to send off to loved ones.  On Saturday one of our friends blessed us by offering to take our picture.  Our kids were not feeling well and it was cold…

The Twins 3rd Birthday-A Peter Pan Party

Christmas Picture Time

Its that time of year again. The time when you try to gather all your little ones together to capture “the greatest family photo of the year.”  It rarely works.  Inevitably you will realize that a picture that you shot on the fly last summer is much better of everyone than the one you took…

Gobble These Up!

I won’t go into all the details, but things around our house have been a bit crazy.  Sadly, my blogging time has suffered.  Hopefully I will be able to gradually get back into the swing of things. The deals seem to be increasing and its the perfect time for me to start getting more posts…

Red White and Blue……Old and New

It is so fun to be able to compare what they looked like at the same time last year during different holidays.  We went to the beach for the day on the 3rd, went to a BBQ with friends on the 4th, and a quick trip to Portland on the 5th.  We hung out with…
