Three months of Nora

Three months of Nora

Nora is officially out of the newborn stage and on into regular old babyhood! We're coming up on some of my favorite months so I'm really excited. šŸ™‚ We are obsessed with this little girl and everything she adds to our lives! Here's what's new for Nora at three months old... Weight & Length:Ā She didn't [...]

18 Months of Jameson

I'm a little late with this post (sheesh, it's hard work keeping up with this kid) but I can't believe we have a one and a half year old! Jameson is really coming into his own now, and we see bits of each of us in his looks and personality...plus a whole lot that is [...]

A sweet treat for your valentineĀ 

A sweet treat for your valentineĀ 

Valentine's Day is over and gone, but these little treats can be made all year long! (If you end an argument with a rhyme, it's convincing all the time. I learned that from "How I Met Your Mother.") Anywho! I brought these mini heart-shaped pies to a ladies Valentine's event for my church and the [...]

The best Christmas.

The best Christmas.

I LOVE the holiday season. Some years are better than others, but this one really blew every other year that I can remember out of the water. For real, this has been my favorite Christmas. A lot of different things played into it to make it extra wonderful... the fact that Jameson was old enough [...]

DIY // The easiest raised garden bed ever

DIY // The easiest raised garden bed ever

Ever since we bought our first house a few months ago I've been itching to start a little patio garden out back. It's been a sort of dream of mine for awhile to grow fresh produce for my family...for health reasons, for teaching purposes (homeschool curriculum down the road?!), and just for the fun of [...]

Fifteen months of Jameson

It's been awhile since I wrote one of these updates, but Jameson just had his 15 month well-visit and I thought it was time to document all the new and exciting things in this boy's world. šŸ™‚ He's grown a TON since I wrote his 12 month update, in every way possible! Oh, he is [...]

Halloween 2016

Wow, okay. This post is super late. It's November and I'm blogging about Halloween. Stuff came up, things got busy, I was needed for a top secret mission. But I really do like documenting all the major holidays for future me to look back on, so here I am...blogging about Halloween in November. Hope you [...]

Oct 2016 // Mother Nature’s Farm

Monday nights are family nights for us. Alex gets home for work, we pack up Jameson and the Charlie woof, and we head over to my parents' house for dinner and dessert (right now my mom has these really yummy sugar cookies from Costco at her house, which have this weird power over me like [...]

12 lessons from my first year of parenting

It's been a hot second since I've written something for my blog. I've been in sort of a writing slump the past few weeks, honestly. I have all these ideas of things I want to write about but then Jameson goes down for a nap and I have to choose between writing for my blog [...]

Jameson’s First Birthday Party

Two Saturdays ago we celebrated the Jimmiest Jam turning ONE with some of our wonderful friends and family! I've actually been trying to write this post for several days now, but my site has been acting up and it's been taking forever to get it all finished. But I think we're good now. šŸ˜‰ We [...]
