Holiday Traditions

Santa, trees, and elves! Lights, music, and food! Establishing traditions while little Q’s a baby seems like the most appropriate time, even though I’m certain we’ll add to over the years. Q saw Santa for the first time this weekend and we are planning to take their picture together soon. To begin with, we had to point Santa …

Blessed

Laundry is done, however not put away, little Q is teething and is getting over a cold, the house needs to be vacuumed, and we looked up what needs to be accomplished to renew our passports but didn’t start it. The house still isn’t decluttered, the baby wet through his diaper so his sheets need to be washed again, never got around to planting my potted flowers in the ground for winter, and am unprepared for the holidays.

On the up side. We have heat for the winter, a solid roof over our heads, working vehicles, shoes on our feet, food to eat, and clean water to drink. Everyone is healthy (other than colds), we have beautiful fall weather, are both employed with good jobs, have some incredible family and friends, each other, and an adorable adopted little Q. I had a rare weekend to relax with my precious family and even took a snuggly nap with Q. We are sincerely thankful for everything and everyone in our lives. We are extremely blessed!

Toddler Entertainment

We were recently sitting at a restaurant with little Q in his high chair just letting out screams. Big, happy screams mind you, but screams, nonetheless. He then smiles big before more screams escape. At least the table close to us didn’t seem to mind or notice from what I could tell. They must have noticed he was …

Enjoying Little Q

He constantly entertains us and makes us a better family. Sappy, I know.

Toasted Marshmallows and Wet Dog

Camping with a baby and a dog. I often wonder about our thought process’ and parenting skills. Shh, don’t tell Little Q!

Pool Party!

My husband took a picture of me last night in a blow up pool erected in the living room who then texted friends to establish if an intervention were required for me. Okay, so it was a little large for the living room, but I intended to purchase a big pool to play in so it was perfect.

Community Service

“Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And, if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.”  Dalai Lama My husband and I help with the harvest festival that’s been celebrated for over 100 years in the small town we live by. A couple of us are gathering items for games, …

7 Month Old Parenting

Parenting a 7 month old is somewhat easy, so far. They haven’t quite figured out precisely what you’re saying yet, but appear to understand and they look so endearing smiling up at you while waiting for you to smile back. When I tell him “No” he looks at me all serious and after a few …

Clutter Management

I hate clutter and we have it! At night I run around picking things up, putting things away, and as soon as I feel like everything is somewhat under control, we get mail with magazines, other toys pulled out for Q, pots, pans, and food hauled out to start dinner and in under 30 minutes it …

Managing Time

Squirrel!! I am like Dug, the dog in “Up” where he gets utterly distracted when he sees a squirrel. I start putting laundry away and (squirrel) see something that needs to go to the living room, then tromp out there to (squirrel) remember I needed to text someone yesterday and (squirrel), I really need to …
