Halloween Movies 2014

Halloween Movies 2014

As I posted last year, holiday movies are a big part of our celebration season. The requirements are simple: on theme with the holiday, enjoyable to watch over and over, cheesy, and quotable. (And for Halloween movies, these are NOT scary. Family friendly isn’t a requirement, but I do not like horror movies.) I’ve added a couple of … Continue reading

Halloween Movie Season Has Begun!

Halloween Movie Season Has Begun!

One of my favorite favorite FAVORITE things about the holiday season is watching (and QUOTING) the same movies every year. We are a movie family and love to snuggle up on the sofa together with popcorn. James and I started years ago with our favorite Christmas movies, and over the course of our marriage we … Continue reading

Summertime

Summertime

I don’t even want to say it or put in into writing, but there are only less than 3 weeks left of summer break. I have always loved summer with my kids home from school. And this year is particularly cruel because our school system moved up the first day of school by an entire … Continue reading

As with all things parenting, everything passes and so I am happy that this particular rough patch has passed. Helping things is the fact that my sweet Sarah turned 7, my … Continue reading

Taco Night

Tacos are one of the few dinners that I can make that my entire family eats. They may not all eat all parts of it, but I do not have to fix something special for each of the kids.  Our taco night menu has been evolving and one of the best new additions is a … Continue reading

Kids, Man

Kids, Man

Let’s talk about kids for a minute. I have three of them and truly, they are three of the best humans I have ever met. I am totally biased by biology, I recognize this. But (to me) they are the cutest, prettiest, most intelligent little beings. It is one of the most fascinating things I … Continue reading

Dinner Time

We cook dinner at home most nights. Well, really every weeknight. We’re not take out people or take-the-kids-anywhere-in-public-for-dinner-on-a-weeknight (dear god no) kind of people. And we like food, we like delicious food, so often that takes a little more time than something easy and convenient. If I’m well-organized and have planned for something easily prepared … Continue reading
