Time to Lock Up The Razor?

With Christine not feeling good today, this is a perfect time for Noah to raid my bathroom and use my clippers on himself!

This is the 3rd time he’s done a hatchet job on himself. Time to lock up my shaving tools?

We’re off to Hollywood

Ethan, Zach, Julia, Josh, Timmy and I have been on a little adventure.

We started out this afternoon –
hit traffic on the highway,
stood in line at the airport,
traversed through security (not an easy task with five kiddos),
waited for our plane,

traveled through the air,

ended the short plane ride just as the sun was setting,

hit more traffic on L.A. freeways,
and finally arrived at our destination, hungry and tired.

Boy, has it been a fun day!

Why the adventure? Well, Frigidaire and Jennifer Garner have teamed up to get families preparing – and enjoying – nutritious foods together. The Frigidaire Kids Cooking Academy is an online school that features daily tip, fun recipes and how-to videos hosted by family friendly chef Mary Sue Miliken and we were invited to attend a special blogger event to celebrate the launch.

I’m sure I’ll have much more to share tomorrow, but for now I must call it a night!

Happy Birthday to Our Julz-Bee!

Today you turn eight. {Our baby girl is EIGHT!}

I remember the day you were born, like it was yesterday. The first thing I made sure of, seconds after I heard your first cry, was that you weren’t ugly. {giggle} Everyone present said you were beautiful. And, oh, they were right. You are beautiful!

Your energy brings joy to all around you.

Your smile is contagious.

Your laugh is like music to our ears.

You are beauty.

Happy birthday, Julia!

Happy 6th Birthday to You, Joshua!


When Daddy and I look at you we see passion, drive, and great concern and love for your family. A love that runs deep. We pray that this, hand in hand with your love for the Lord, will guide your passions into service for Him, as you grow in Him.

You are focused and know what you want, hopeful, and eager to take on new challenges. Not to mention, a total goofball! It’s very clear to us that you have every desire to succeed in all that you set out to do, making you less than content with failure. Your winning spirit is truly contagious.

We love you, Bud, and know that this year will be one of filled with many good things! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
