My favorite sign, seen in a shop on Mackinac Island:

“Children left unattended will be given an espresso and a puppy.”

So clever!  And hilarious!


Put On Your Thinking Caps!

Well, we have a new addition to our family.  Most of you know that we bought Spike a snake about a year ago.  The snake, Tiny, has really become a member of the family and she’s getting bigger!  Recently, Spike used his own money to buy a baby snake to keep Tiny company.  But he’s having a hard time coming up with a name for the baby.  We need suggestions!  I’ve included a picture of both Tiny and the baby for inspiration.  If you suggest a name, and Spike picks it, you’ll get a little gift from me in the mail!  Ready, set….go!

Really Disgusting

Spike, my 13 year old son, was away at camp for a week.  He just came home and I did his laundry.  There was a total of two pair of dirty underwear:  one pair in his bag, and one pair that he took off before his shower.  Two pair.  In a week.  He says he “forgot” to change them. 

This will get better, right??

Happy, Happy Birthday!

There are times when it seems that only yesterday, my little Goo was a baby and I was overwhelmed with going from two kids to three.  Then there are other times that it seems we’ve had this sweet little boy in our lives forever, and we can’t remember what it was like before he was here.  It’s his birthday today.  He’s five.  My baby boy is five.

Goo, I love you.  Happy, happy birthday.  You were a surprise to us, but God knew just what He was doing.  You make me smile every day, and I love you so much.


I have added the picture on my previous post.  Thanks to SWC for sending it to me again.  And girl, I had such a great time the other night.  And you’re good people too.  xoxo

Stay Tuned

I’m doing some maintenance on my blog today, in my spare (ha!) time.  I’m trying to finally get a blogroll up, some of my favorite links, and just some other cool stuff to make it pretty.  It’s a work in progress, so bare with me!!  And if you’re a regular reader and want to be on my blogroll, leave me a comment and let me know.  I’d be happy to oblige.
