  • Happy Birthday, Abba-ita!

    If you know my kids, you can hear them singing the title as you read it. Today is a holiday in our house because it is Tony’s mom’s birthday, and she is our hero. (I have not, however, committed her birthday to memory and, therefore, am embarrassed we didn’t do more than this post.) Let […]

    I love Halloween! I know some people don’t participate in it, but I celebrate it! It’s so fun to get the kids dressed up, pick pumpkins, carve pumpkins, eat the kids’ candy, etc. Here are some pictures of us enjoying one of my favorite times of the year. We started the Halloween season by going […]
