I have been thinking...

So, I have a real desire to start blogging again. I have been having a lot of ah-ha moments lately and feel like writing them down would be helpful... For me anyway.

In doing this, I have also decided that I will probably change my blog a bit, because even though much of what I have blogged about before has been about my babies, I want to tell my story. I want something for my children to look back on, and realize that these are my memories, as I have them. I will continue to talk about my kiddos, but I want to take center stage a bit more, I know some of my readers are no longer following me, which is ok. I am going to blog for me... And if someone else reads it and gets something from my musings, awesome! If not, that Is ok too. :)

So, coming soon(i.e., when I get to my husband's shop), I will give you a fresh look that hopefully will change things up.

Look who lost her first tooth!!! Tonight at 10:55 pm my sweet little girl walked into the living room where I was sitting and said, "Ok, I am ready mommy! Pull it!"

And so... I did! She had already loosened it up a lot with her tongue, so it was easy!

We {heart} Kings Island!

Alternately titled: The post with a million pictures! Smile

We had BEAUTIFUL weather early this week. I mean, it was AMAZING!!! So, to enjoy this week with amazing weather, we decided that we would take Grace and Jack to Kings Island. I have posted about Grace’s favorite place before, but let me tell you… her love seems to grow for Kings Island every winter!

So, here is a pictorial of our afternoon at “The Island”.


This picture below is my favorite! I am not sure why, but it is… DSCN1389DSCN1391DSCN1393DSCN1395DSCN1394DSCN1397DSCN1398DSCN1402DSCN1405
