On Thanksgiving Day my oldest daughter handed each of us a turkey hat she made herself. She stood by and waited as each of us tried them on for size. My son love his, and wore it all day.

I was decluttering some of our art supplies and beginning to pack up our house. I found a couple of giant Christmas themed coloring books and handed each of them one to work on. My son took his and plopped it on the ground and began to color.

Biracial siblings love

Lee Lee has is fondly amused by her big brother, so I set her beside him while I finished taping up some packing boxes. I was trying to get as much house stuff done over the holiday weekend as I could, while my inbox was quiet.

Out of the corner of my eye I noticed Lee Lee kicking her little feet and watching her big brother. He noticed too and put his marker down before leaning over her for some kisses.

I dropped what I was doing and ran for my camera. I came back, thankful they were still in the same position and snapped a few shots.

The room was a mess, toys abound, boxes in the corner, but I didn’t care.

A special moment–A fleeing one–between brother and sister one Thanksgiving morning.

No staging or direction needed. No logos to line up. I was able to sit back and enjoy these two little faces I created smiling at each other.

I’m working so hard to build something so great for my children. A place they can grow up with room to run and play. But as I looked at them playing with a handful of toys I had yet to pack I remembered we already have what matters most.

It’s so important to remember to be thankful for what we already have, while we’re going after what we want.

Quiet (or not so quiet) mornings, together. Surrounded by our favorite type of mess. With lots of love abound.

This is what it’s all about.


10 years ago I had a crazy idea to start a blog and here I am, still going. It’s my 10 year blogiversary and I was thinking of all the ways I should celebrate. Maybe a giveaway, a roundup of my favorite posts, or tips for starting your own blog. Those posts may still come… read the rest.


Abercrombie kids clothes review

“Mommy, are unicorns real?” My oldest daughter asked me one afternoon after school. “I’ve never seen one, but who knows. What do you think baby?” “Well, I know they aren’t real, but that doesn’t mean I can’t still wear clothes with unicorns on them,” she responded. “Of course you can. Why would anyone think you… read the rest.


Within our family there’s a tradition of having a family night once a week. It’s called Family Home Evening. Historically I’ve heard many people hold it on Monday nights, but there’s no hard and fast rule stating that’s when it should be. Today, I’m sharing some photos from our most recent Family Home Evening with… read the rest.

How many more firsts will I get with my kids?

In my house growing up there was a rule that you don’t talk back to your parents. If you did, you got your butt whipped. In my son’s class at school there’s some kind of rule about using their white boards for writing words and practicing numbers. Not for drawing pictures. “Because just drawing pictures… read the rest.


ralph breaks the internet kids review

Ok so I braved a movie screening with three kids solo. Including our three month old baby. Thankfully our screening wasn’t jam packed and we came out unscathed. Also, because of the screening time of the movie my kids were the ONLY kids in the theater. So that made for an interesting experience. Anyway. We… read the rest.


Write lunch notes to your kids

I owe you an entire post on life with three kids. I feel like I’ve jumped on a high speed train and it hasn’t slowed down. But all of it in one word: Humbling. My two older babies have been back in public school for nine weeks. NINE WEEKS? How is this possible? I’ve so… read the rest.
