Kindergarten Gallery

Capturing those first few days of school are so special. I look at these often and think about how fast time is going to pass. Before I know it, I will be booking her senior class portraits. Even in the few weeks since I took these, she seems to have grown up and changed so […]

Boat Show

For the last few years, we have gone to the local boat shows with Grammie and Pop. It is really fun to see all the different boats. We like to daydream about having one and talking about what Pop should buy for his next boat. The kids love climbing in and out and finding all […]

Preschool Graduate

This year flew by and summer has arrived. It’s hard to believe Lucy will be off to Kindergarten full days in a few short months. I can not say enough great things about Preschool Playmates. They far exceeded my expectation. Lucy’s teachers, Mrs. Philips and Mrs. Connors, were truly amazing. The special things the kids […]

Cup Celebration

It has been an awesome hockey season. Jack as most of you know loves all things black and gold. He literally sleeps with a hockey stick. Of course it is fitting considering his favorite Uncle and Pop’s love for the Bruins is up there in fan rankings. Even his Dad seems to be more of […]

Spring Photos

I feel like I have had little time to pick up my camera and shot these days. And even less to time to share them. Here are a few from the spring that I got in before the endless rain started. There are not many but they sure do show you how grown up these […]

Art Show

It has been much anticipated this year, Lucy’s school art show! The teachers work extra hard to convert their preschool into a real art museum. I was so proud of Lucy and her friends. They studied famous and unique artists all month and replicated their works. Impressive is an understatement!


It has become a tradition for us to spend New Years Eve down at the cottage. As you know, it is one of our favorite places to spend time. The more the merrier every year! It’s nice to be low key on such a crazy night but having fun with family. This year it was […]

Christmas Day 2010

Santa was very good to everyone this year. It is such a magical morning in our house. I was laying awake at 6am anxious for the kids to get up. This year Grammie & Pop came to the house to join us for the present opening madness. We were thrilled to have them and they […]

Gingerbread Fun

I can not remember ever having made a Gingerbread house as a kid. We were thrilled when Tom’s Aunt Sue invited the kids and I over for some holiday fun. Cousin Logan joined us and there was enough candy to fill a candy store. It was a sugar high fun filled afternoon. I was so […]

Christmas Eve 2010

It is really a great night with family here at our house on Christmas Eve. I love hosting this every year. We had tons of yummy food and great gifts in the swap. As you can see, there was fun had by all.

Gingerbread Houses

If you can believe it, I have never decorated a Gingerbread house in my nearly 32 years of life. Auntie Sue invited the kids and I over for some Gingerbread making this season with cousin Logan. The massive amounts of candy made my head spin. The kids were in heaven. Jack’s house may have had […]

2nd Annual Cookie Playdate

Of dear friend Dianna hosted the second annual Holiday Cookie Playdate a few weeks ago. The kids have changed so much in a year. They really enjoyed all the decorating. It was far more relaxed this year. Everyone ate their fair share of frosting and took home some of their messy over decorated cookies. I […]

Buddy & Piper

This year, our Elf returned with a trainee named Piper. They have done a great job monitoring the kids as they try to stay on the nice list until Christmas. Seems that they have a little fun around the house after bedtime and before heading to the North Pole to report to the Big Man. […]

Monster Bash

For Jack’s 2nd birthday, we had a friendly monster party. We had lots of fun posing with the Monster stand up that Pop built and Tommy painted. It was the perfect extra for the party. I made a special birthday banner and some other decorations. Moe made another fantastic cake and the kids had some […]

Football Celebration

On Jack’s 2nd birthday we had a small pre-party with dinner and cake. When I took him to the store he picked out the football cake. To say he likes all things football is an understatement. So I picked up a few party hats and a balloon to make my little man’s day extra special.
