She’s Going Green!

I’m back from my unofficial blog-cation … I think :) Either way, I wanted to pop in and share a bit about Jemma’s new aversion – VEGGIES! It’s gotta be a mother’s worst nightmare to have a perfect green bean tossed back at her in disgust, but it’s happening. She’ll gladly eat a bowl of […]

Happy Halloween & The Best Caramel Corn EVER

Hope you are all having a fun and safe Halloween! I went out for errands as I’m not a huge fan of Halloween. Not for any particular reason – it’s just not my holiday. Sidenote … I loved Kristin’s post about how Christians react to Halloween. So, while mama was away, Daddy and Jemma Pebbles […]
