It’s that time of year when, in the very, very dark recesses of my mind, I start wondering what in the world I’m going to put on the Christmas card. I know, it’s early September and we still haven’t even celebrated Columbus Day (Native American Day for you South Dakotans), but you don’t want to […]
I was told this little girl doesn’t like to smile for the camera. Any time I hear this, I make it my goal to prove them wrong. Note to self: tripping over my own feet works.
Some babies are lucky enough to have a big sister. Other babies are lucky enough to have a big brother. Little Sammy has both. And he is one lucky little boy.
I was listening to the radio recently and they were talking about the Happy Meal Scandal. You know, the battle over eliminating toys and adding apples. It sounds kind of absurd when you say it out loud, so don’t. Because I was stuck at about the 23rd minute of my 55 minute commute to work, […]

While Grace was busy finding her thumb, her grandma was busy pinning lace. And every time […]
I was inspired this morning by this lady who actually has a knack for inspiring me quite often. She posts even when she doesn’t have much to say and is so kind and thoughtful that I’d like her to be my neighbor. I’m not sure right now which one I’d replace, but I’d find room for […]
I was born in the middle of February in an Army hospital in Alaska to a B-52 mechanic and a nurse. That mechanic knew his aircraft inside and out. He spent days and weeks away from his family as conflicts raged halfway across the globe. After a decade or so he left the service, but […]
