Aren’t Dad-dad’s the Best?!

.Ryan and Owen sure do love their dad-dad (Jim’s dad). Most mornings on the way to school Ryan will ask when we’re going to dad-dad’s house next. And of course Owen always chimes in with “I want my dad-dad” with a big pouty lip. They live about Shave But lots loved started nails best […]

Big Canoe Christmas

.Christmas Eve was filled with family, food, conversations, cookies and presents.  It was a great night and there were no meltdowns or temper tantrums by the kids or adults. We spent the entire afternoon in Big Canoe, GA at Grandad and Grandmom’s house.  The house was beautifully decorated and presents overflowed from under the tree.  […]

A Sheperd and a Sheep

.A sheperd and a sheep…. Those are what our boys were in the annual Big Canoe Chapel Christmas Eve family service at  Grandad Jim and Grandmom Janice’s house.  Ryan played the part of a sheperd boy while Owen carried the sheep. Yes, he carried the sheep. Why? Well because he refused to actually wear it […]

Turkey Cupcakes

.Yes, I did say turkey cupcakes, but they are not what you think.  They are absolutely yummy and almost too cute to eat. My sister-in-law has this amazing talent for making cupcakes.  It’s actually ridiculous how much talent she has.  Not to mention the amount of patience that she has to mold, cut and shape […]

Sweet Potato Casserole

.For 4 years now, I have been responsible for making the sweet potato casserole for our Thanksgiving meal. And this year was no exception. I almost have the recipe memorized at this point, but since I only make it once or twice per year, I still need to double-check myself so I follow the recipe. […]

Road Less Traveled

.Don’t you just wonder what this little 3 year old is thinking as he walks down this road less traveled in Big Canoe, GA? So many thoughts to ponder.  So many things still left to learn.  So much confidence in each step. So many adventures that still lie ahead.  So much love that surrounds him….. […]

Brotherly Love

.There really isn’t anything quite like brothers.  I am always amazed at how Ryan and Owen interact with each other.  I love to see their differences and I love to see their similarities.  I love that they are complete individuals with such a common bond; such a common love. And while up in Big Canoe, […]

Big Canoe Wedding

.I don’t even know where to start.  There is so much to share about our Labor Day weekend in Big Canoe, Georgia.  I’m going to save the Jeep Trail Hike for another post and instead I’m going to skip right to the wedding.  Or the moments leading up to it anyway….. Neither Ryan nor Owen […]

Stories You Hope Your Child Doesn’t Share Publicly

.What a busy weekend.  And fun.  Serious fun.  Jim’s sister Kelly got married in Big Canoe over the weekend and while I have oodles of pictures and stories to share, this one couldn’t wait. On Sunday morning we wake up in Big Canoe much too early after a night of dancing and wine and I […]

Stubborn Like His Father

.If you haven’t met Owen, he is a very strong willed and stubborn child.  He is absolutely hilarious and the sweetest thing ever, but man does he have a mind of his own.  And he loves to show it.  His teachers at Woodchase Academy would probably disagree with me on these statements though because they […]
