I want to tell you something. You don’t have to do it ALL this holiday. Not this year. Not right now. Give yourself lots of grace. You […]

We took our two boys to their very first ever theater performance to see A Charlie Brown Christmas at the Dallas Children’s Theater. What a treat for the entire family!

I don’t want this post to turn into a discussion on if hunting is “right” or “wrong.” You do you and stick to your “guns,” while I do me and believe that hunting is the circle of life and true conservation. Here we go… Yes, I hunt. Yes, I’m a girl. Heaven forbid, right? People […]

cheerful giver
Teaching a child to be a cheerful giver is something that I’ve still not gotten the hang of, though I’ve had plenty of time to practice. I used to think that I could teach my kids to give to others, that out of practice and habit, it would become natural and decided.  But I long […]

As the holidays approach, I want to encourage all moms to stop and capture the moment.  I love seeing family photos and find it calms my kids down to shuffle through our Flickr account of baby pictures.  We could easily waste an hour of our time cuddling and looking at old photos.  Kids love to […]
