Holiday To Do List

by Jesse on November 28, 2014

If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time you know I’m big on traditions. I think it’s so important to ground your children in these special memories. Something they can look back on with fondness and look forward to each season. Childhood passes in such a blur and we only get a handful of years to soak up these times. I intend to swim in them!

Here are a few things old and new that we will be participating in this Christmas season.

Kids Sports

by Jesse on November 24, 2014

This time of the year is super busy for us. Blair is dancing and the boys are wrestling. While Rhett is participating in his 5th year of wrestling, Blair and Jude are just beginning their careers in their sports. I can’t say enough how rewarding it is to watch my children strive to learn a craft. To feel that sense of accomplishment when they learn a new move or win a match. Also watching them overcome a challenge and learn that sometimes it takes more than one try to get something right. These lessons will be with them always. Preparing them for the things that life will inevitably throw at them.

Keep reaching babies!

I think my favorite thing about the holidays is the traditions we create as a family. Simple little things that we look forward to each year. When asked, my children all said their favorite thing was that they got up and ate pie for breakfast on Thanksgiving morning. It is definitely tops for me too. […]

A good friend shared an easy soup recipe with me recently. My family so enjoyed it that I thought I would pass it along. Who doesn’t love a quick and easy chicken soup recipe. Especially this time of year. I embellished the original recipe just a tiny bit. Here is my version. 6 Cups Chicken […]

Updated Entryway

November 2, 2014

It’s been a long time coming. I think this is probably a record for how long I’ve left a particular space alone. LOL! While I loved having the Stenciled Wall in my entry, it was time for a change.  I was ready to add some depth and drama to our space. The entry isn’t a […]

Painted Ceilings

October 27, 2014

This weekend I finally was inspired to make over our entry way. That pretty stencil pattern had run it’s course and it was time to change it up. I have been thinking of going dark on that wall since all of the other wall will be going a shade of gray white soon. So how […]
