Quit worrying so much…it wont kill em!

You know, as parents we tend to fret about a lot of things….like are we feeding our kids good enough, and if we are, can we afford to do it for very long? I mean really…organic fruits & veggies and Greek Yogurt is no match for that $.98 box of macaroni & Cheese! There’s also…

Road Trip!!!

Ya’ll I’ve got road fat! You know the kind…..the sit on your butt for days as you drive cross country and eat nothing but fried food (it’s the rule right?) and munchies for endless miles upon miles kind!! I guess you could call it van arse if you really wanted to get technical! No matter…

Scrap dresses!

See these dresses? Like them? Nora was outgrowing her shirts and I couldn’t find any cute..cheap…dresses for her, so I used leftover fabric to make these scrap dresses! I also made the little fabric braided necklaces too…because girls just love accessories! I thought about selling these on ETSY… What? You’d be interested in them? Well……..

Busy ‘bug’!

This post is a little late coming, but boy o’ boy have things been crazy around here lately! Nora had been sick right before Halloween, with what we thought was just a bug, but on Halloween day, the doctor called to let us know that Nora’s tests had come back and she did indeed have…

Haunting of the house!

It’s Halloween at the Hawkins house… That means lots of weird, haunting things going on around here… We’ve had a ceiling fan fall right out of the ceiling, at dinner time even…and with a sick crying baby (stomach bug for the past 4 days)…. by the way, do you know how heavy ceiling fans are?…
