It’s a Good Year to Be a Pirates Fan


Wyatt has been interested in the Pirates all summer and he wears his Pirates baseball hat constantly. I often find that hat in bed with him at night. Once he found out we were going to a game in August, he asked every day when we were going and if he would wear his . . . → Read More: It’s a Good Year to Be a Pirates Fan

I will start out with the drama for those of you looking for an update on Scott. Scott was in a car accident last weekend and has a concussion.

Little Men

Clothes for baby girls are the cutest…I still find myself looking at the new baby girl clothes when I am shopping for the boys.

Happy Independence Day

Yesterday we went to Aunt Natalae’s Annual 3rd of July party. It is a huge party complete with a live band and fireworks. I think that this was my 7th year of the party.
