PhotoPass 2013

It’s a treat to get our PhotoPass cd in the mail. I love that we have so many photos of all five of us. I didn’t take nearly as many photos on my personal camera but it is great to see we did in fact take advantage of the option to let Disney do their […]

Summer Recap

I admit that we have been so busy having fun, being lazy, and trying to make the most of the summer that blogging has not been anywhere near the top of my priority list. Fleetingly I would tell myself to get back on it and share those photos and our memories. Alas, the instant ability […]

Mothers Day 2013

A day of family and full of smiles made this mothers day so very special. I truly saw some moments that made my heart grow. We had a lovely time being moms on the Cape and at one of our favorite places, Heritage Museum & Gardens. It felt really good to get my camera clicking […]

Elving 2012

I get so excited to create holiday magic each year. Playing Santa and bombarding my kids with all the joys of the holidays brings me so much happiness. Sometimes I wonder about my own sanity. As you know, a few years ago, the Elf on the Shelf entered our home and created quite a stir. […]

Chrismtas & New Years

Each year I am reminded about how blessed I am to have such an amazing family. That includes the extra special people I married into that has never made me feel like anything less than a part of their family. It is so great to call so many of them friends as well. As usual […]

Holiday Fun Gallery

It is so fun to do all the Holiday events and we try to get out to see lots of lights and such each year. This year having been in Disney for a week, we actually didn’t manage to do some of our favorite things but we did manage to add some new things. I […]

Emme’s 1st Birthday

It was magical to take the family to Disney this winter and to be there for her first birthday. However, We of course had a family celebration when we returned. Our closest friends and family joined us for a One-derland Brunch that could not have been more perfect! It was full of love and yummy […]

Disney 2012

Our 3rd annual trip to Disney World was truly a blast. I say annual because we have been the last three years in a row and on our way home I was plotting our return for next year. Now we need to hit our budget so I can make that happen. We got to go […]

Baseball Fun

Summer is fast approaching and we have lots of fun things ahead. We spent last night at the local baseball stadium. It is so much fun to be out in the fresh air with friends. Watching the kids interact and enjoy themselves is so special. My kiddos all really have a special connection with the […]


My sweet Lucy turned 6 this weekend! I swear she was just born. She amazes me everyday with how smart and kind she is and I truly am more proud of her than ever. We celebrated in true birthday fashion with a great theme this year. You all know I love this stuff. We had […]

Spring Showers

Spring is here and I think Emme gets cuter by the day but of course she is mine and I can say that. She looks just like her big sister did at this age. We are crazy as ever but I need to get more photos up here to share. There are lots of birthdays […]


Emme, Emme-Bear, M&M, Smooshy, Poop Machine (Thanks JTT), Em, Sweetness, and formerly Patches…all things we call our little girl. She is growing and changing so much already and we are trying to remember to get photos of her as these newborn days fly by faster with each child.

Christmas 2011

Christmas 2011 went by so fast. I’m sure having a newborn had nothing to do with that. There are not nearly enough photos but here are a few from the weekends festivities. We hosted Christmas Eve at our house and then Christmas Day we ventured over to the Venturas to celebrate Rachel’s birthday and exchange […]

Sir Stanley

Imagine our excitement when we had the chance to go see the Stanley Cup! Having a chance to attend an event like this that would surely make my Jack extra happy is hard to pass up. Our little man seriously loves hockey. I need to be sure to post some of his skating videos and […]
