Camp Happy!

Just takin the days as they come now :) We couldn’t go up to our regular camping spot on account of it being the ever so lovely fire season so we took a trip to Gummy and Papi’s backyard instead. I was super enthusiastic about it. But really, mom named it Camp Happy and it certainly turned into such. We had the best time! Just LOOK how happy my husband is to be setting up […]

School has begun!

We are all VERY excited, clearly, to be starting school again. We have a FIRST grader!!! A KINDERGARTENER!!! And HEY we’ll call him a preschooler AKA participating in the art of distraction ;) Goodness as intimidating as it is to homeschool, I can’t adequately express what an honor it is to get to teach them. The conversations I get to be a part of just melt my heart. We have our Voice of the Martyrs […]

Happy birthday to our boy! We had the best time celebrating him – complete with the most exciting day, for the kids, and the most exhausting day, for the adults. Started with our normal family breakfast of sweets and presents.. So glad he thought his dino party was, in his words, “awesome,” cause that theme kept changing right up to the night before… sound like anyone you know, mom? ;) We missed you, Gummy Rory! […]

The most dreamy bed and bath I could possibly ask for

Here are a few snippets from when the Lord blew our socks off once again. I’m just blown away by how good He is to help us floundering people out and how He seems to care about the silliest details in our lives. Our renovation projects seem to follow the same pattern. We always have a hard time finding a contractor that is available… then we seem to run into one that has a small […]

A little trip!

Hey, look! I took pictures! I really hate lugging around my big camera but I can’t tell you how much I miss looking at pictures of our adventures, even if I’m the only one who ever looks at them… it’s truly my only memory bank so without it I have no idea what we’ve been doing all this time. Oh wait, I know. Another longest renovation of all time situation. BUT HEY we have the […]

What do you think?

Last year, something happened that seemed to flip a switch in my brain. I’m not sure precisely what it was, but what I think it might have been was, my cynical or rather, extra logical husband had a rapture dream and the very next morning the fires started – which you know, was just one of the most surreal, eerie events I’ve ever experienced. Remember the crazy dark sky in the middle of the day […]

A few from yesterday

I know this is hardly exciting for anyone but me, but we finally got to dedicate our little guy to the Lord yesterday! I’ve been waiting for two years for this to happen and I can’t even either believe it finally did! Naturally, we acted as awkward as possible on stage, complete with half the family mysteriously missing behind Greg, me thinking it was a good idea to take the baby mid-prayer, and even a […]

My Story

This week in our Bible study we are supposed to share our story with someone which, considering the masks and lockdowns and screaming children that seem to always be accompanying me, has proven quite difficult. So I thought I’d share it on here. I’ve always struggled with telling it because I don’t feel like there is much to it – simple version: I grew up Christian, the end. But the truth is, I consider myself […]

A Covid Summer

Shall we take a stroll through the weirdness that this spring and summer have been? What have you been up to? We’ve missed you so much! Mostly all of our spring was spent sunbathing naked and watching this bird. Or hotel of birds. My goodness those guys were busy. They went in and out in and out all day it seemed! And I STILL never got a good picture. Oh but how I love spring […]

Some pics from his day! ^^This is about as crafty as I get. Be oh so inspired. ^^I think boys have their sword fight brain engaged and ready for action at all times ^^A stance girls hardly ever assume ^^I don’t know if […]
