Ice Skating is Awesome

Yesterday Eliza, my sister Taylor, and I had a girl’s day out. We went to the Crown Center Ice Terrace to go ice skating. It was Eliza’s first time out, so that made things super interesting (and exhausting). I forgot that ice skating is so much exercise. Multiply that times … Read the rest

Jonas's First Birthday Party

We’re recouping from the kid’s joint birthday party. Today was just family; we’re having a kid centric one for Eliza later in the month. We’ll give a full recap soon, but for now we HAD to share the photo of Jonas with cake in one fist and ice cream in … Read the rest

Learning Opportunity

Friday night we had a Christmas party for Megan’s side of the family. Poppy, Bev, Beth, Brad, Nathan, Julie, and Taylor all joined us for the most amazing chicken Parmesan I think I’ve ever had. We also had Eggplant Parmesan, which I’m sure was just as good but I didn’t … Read the rest

It has been insane around here (We thought the shop would slow down after Cyber Monday. Man, were we wrong!), so … Read the rest

Eliza’s Ornament a Day: Day 2

Eliza's Ornament a Day: Day 2

Just like last year, Eliza’s making an ornament every day until Christmas! Day 2 was an aluminum foil house, based on these ornaments.

The first step was to freehand a house on cardboard. We used a record album cover, because we’ve got those to spare.

Eliza's Ornament a Day: Day 1

Just like last year, Eliza’s making an ornament every day until Christmas! Day 1 is a tin can lid snowflake (sort of).

We had a ton of can lids leftover from our Canned Tree Advent Calendar, so yesterday I chose to use one of them for Day 1 … Read the rest

Eliza’s School Work Scrapbook

Eliza’s first parent teacher conference was Monday, so I thought it would be a perfect time to share her school work. We made a scrapbook together to contain the many papers that were taking over our kitchen island.

She made the cover page with me. I love that her handwriting … Read the rest
