Pride and Joy
Pride: Watching my husband go all out in his first strongman competition. Joy: Celebrating Skyler’s 3rd birthday and watching her open all her new Mickey Mouse/Goofy presents.
Friday’s text message conversation with my friend: Me: I am suspicious… Her: Of what? Me: Things! Her: Um….good things or bad things? What happened? I noticed Thursday that our guest bedroom had been cleaned up, along with the rest of the house. Ronnie comes home during the day and cleans a lot, but only typically…
Party in the Park
Skyler’s second birthday (I feel like I JUST posted photos from her first birthday – crazy!). This post will be short on words, but long on pictures!

But according to the Bible, there is a time for everything. I love these verses because they help me focus on living a balanced life…
Skyler’s first birthday is fast approaching. We aren’t doing the big hooplah which a lot of people do for their kids’ first birthdays these days. I’m just not up to it, and frankly, I probably won’t ever make much of a big deal until she can remember it, in which case I might be inclined…
