  • Memorial Weekend Hootenannny

    Last night we came home and lazed about playing board games and eating pizza as we discussed our plans for this Memorial Day Weekend..   As the discussion continued over a game of Don’t Break the Ice, or rather mommy puts the pieces back into the holder so Jude can hammer them out, music was […]

  • The Jolly Holiday

    We were lucky enough to get to go see the Broadway production of Mary Poppins on Friday.  We headed downtown to The Paramount to catch the bedazzling presentation with my parents, niece, nephew and, of course, the whole LJ crew. They included a lot of the music from the movie, but it was very different […]

  • Boy

    Have I told you that my son is a goofball?  That he will do anything for a laugh?  Even if he is the only one laughing?   True story.  He wants to make you laugh!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

  • Nicknames 2013-01-04 21:30:33-

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
