The Best Things In Life are 3!

What’s that you say?! Blog resurrection? Meh…Maybe, but don’t hold your breath. I would love to blog more often than every 8 months (yikes, my last blog post was in April!!), but I can’t make any promises. There’s a brief update chock...

Little & Mighty

Growing up in the Pecos Canyon there weren’t exactly a lot of children around to play with…unless you count the 15o or so kids who were at Brush Ranch each summer. But really, the residents who lived in the Canyon all year around and who had kids were few...

Two by Two: Happy Birthday Munchkins!

Yes, today is the day our little ones turn two. Happy birthday munchkins!! For some reason, I can’t stop singing, “The ants go marching two by two, hurrah, hurrah. The ants go marching two by two hurrah, hurrah. The ants go marching two by two, the little...

Fall Tradition: Christmas Tree Cutting

Though many families have holiday traditions, I’ve always felt like our summertime was more steeped in tradition since that was camp time.  We had opening day and final day, vespers and devotional, fiesta day, and many other smaller traditions. But, for the...

World Prematurity Day

Today, November 17th is World Prematurity Day. This is a subject that is near and dear to us, and one that I didn’t realize impacted so many families around the world until I was a part of one of those families. Our kiddos were born at 31 weeks (read the birth...

Lost But Not Forgotten

Today, October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day. Not a single day goes by that I’m not extremely grateful for our vibrant, beautiful, full of personality, kiddos. And not a single day has gone by since that September day in 2012 when I...

Toddler Sleep Study: Not that Fun

My list of things I never want to do again: Toddler Sleep Study Neala and I went on a girls date last night. To a hotel. For a sleep study. Turns out, the kid has giant tonsils which may be causing her Darth Vader-like mouth breathing and, more importantly, sleep...

My Village

It seems like we hit a new milestone almost daily. I’m not talking about just our kids, but in our lives as adults too. I try to spend some time each week reflecting on how far we’ve come in the past few years. This blog was suppose to be my place to do...

I’ve Got that Brush Ranch Feeling

You guys….WE DID IT!!! We had a reunion for a thing that only exists in our hears and memories! I will attempt a recap of our Brush Ranch Reunion weekend for those of you who were unable to join us. (I will also say that I’m exhausted and this blog...
