National Iced Tea Day

It was the perfect weather to celebrate National Iced Tea Day. And I had a great little helper who opened all the tea packets for me... Out in the sun brewing. We had a One Pot Zucchini Mushroom Pasta dish for dinner and used fresh Thyme to celebrate National Herb and Spice Day... yum! Jeffrey…

Donald Duck Day

If you read my post on Finding Joy you will have learned I had a rough afternoon with Jeffrey. The day started so well with some fun in the sun... But in the end we only managed to watch the debut of Donald Duck in The Wise Little Hen to celebrate Donald Duck Day... so there's not much to…

Upsy Daisy Day

Upsy Daisy Day is all about waking up gleefully and being happy... so we tried to do just that. A little soccer... Running through the sprinkler... And enjoying some food... With funny faces!

Finding Joy

Motherhood is the hardest job I've ever had, more than working midnight shows at the movie theater, getting home between 2am and 5am - then having to be in my graphic design class by 7am. It can be absolutely exhausting, frustrating, irritating, boring, monotonous and everything I do my three-year old mimics! I said stupid one time in…

National Frozen Yogurt Day

Sunday morning brought a mix of sadness at the leaving of Auntie Na and Uncle Zac but excitement for the awesome adventure they will be going on! Goodbye kisses for Auntie Na... And Uncle Zac... Since we started the day early, we went on a drive to check out potential camping spots. On our return…

Drawing (Pencil) Day

Having my sister home from Italy for a whole month was so fun but made it harder to say goodbye. We are six years apart, so it's been a long time in coming for us to actually get close. And it finally happened - we are good friends! I look forward to her return! On her last day Stateside…

National Doughnut Day

After a month of being behind I am finally caught up on posting all these holiday celebrations! Woo hoo! Today was National Doughnut Day so there were lots of free donut options in the area - only Jeffrey didn't want one! Definitely proves we have eaten way too much junk lately when my 3-year-old doesn't want…

National Applesauce Cake Day

After a late night shopping trip that led us to Krispy Kremes... after 9pm all donuts are 50% off! I came home to Caleb bearing donuts... which we enjoyed the following morning. Sweets for my sweetie baby... I enjoyed my favorite cream filled donut with a little bit of Bible reading and coffee in my…

National Egg Day

Who would have thought raspberries could be so fun? Yummy! And Yucky!!? Tsk tsk Jack... This is Jack's new favorite place to play. It's like having a playpen only he wants to back there... a 2'x2' square with a few toys... it's Jeffrey's favorite spot too... works for me! Seeing as it was National Egg Day and my…

National Rocky Road Day

June 2nd began with a slow morning of little boys playing in boxes... Jeffrey was pushing Jack up and down the hallway... Then Jeffrey decided to put all of Jack's favorite toys in the box but didn't want Jack in there... oh big brothers... "I really don't want him in there mommy..." "Ok he can play..."…
