All Quiet

Sometimes at night I am just amazed at how quiet the house can be.  After a day full of racing, chasing, bouncing, dancing, singing, it feels like the walls should continue to echo long after everyone is in bed. Still . . . . . . . . . . . . . Peace.

Happy holidays!! I can’t believe another year is gone.  I’m praying 2010 is going to be a great year! One of the holiday things our family did this year was making candy.  We made several different kinds and had so much fun!  K’s specialty was making lollipops.  He made another batch today of cinnamon, and […]

Crazy For Coupons

Comments   6   Date Arrow  June 18, 2009 at 12:42am   User  by Granolageekmom

I have used coupons pretty much always, but I started “couponing” about three years ago.  Yes, there is a difference.  Before getting serious about coupons, I would go through the coupon inserts that came in the newspaper, cut out about half of them because those were the ones I thought I might use, and put […]

  (Hey, I actually got pictures transferred to my computer within a day of taking them! 🙂 )  My sister made a cute sweatshirt and pant set for E1 when she was 2 years old.  E1 wore it constantly, for months, except when it was just too hot.  When E3 was about that age, we pulled it out of the box […]

Fun Easter Weekend

We really had a great weekend.  It wasn’t anything different than our traditional Easter weekend, and yet it was. Saturday we got together with all of my husband’s family to dye eggs and just have fun.  This year we also had some friends join us, increasing the child count from 7 to 11.  Thankfully for […]

  A while ago the kids saw or heard something about the trick of hanging a spoon on the end of the nose.  We all investigated the physics of how it works, and experimented with different spoons and methods to see if any of us could do it.  Of all of us, only E3 was able to get […]

December 2 Photo- New Knife

Comments   1   Date Arrow  December 7, 2007 at 12:04pm   User  by Granolageekmom

  I guess E4 isn’t the only one growing up!  An avid knife collector, K has planned all of the kids’ first pocket knives.  E2 has decided he’s ready to have one, and K agreed, with a few restrictions: it stays on our desk when not being used, and right now it is only used with supervision.  E2 […]

  I have given up trying to catch up the photos to the current date.  The farther behind I got the more I procrastinated posting anything.  So, I’m going to finish out the year starting now! E4 has just been growing like a weed- she’s toddling all over the house, adding new words to her […]

August 24 Photo- Newsboy Cap

Comments   Comments Off on August 24 Photo- Newsboy Cap   Date Arrow  October 25, 2007 at 4:58pm   User  by Granolageekmom

  E4 enjoyed putting my cousin’s hat on her head and then taking it off.  I thought it was apropos that it was a newsboy cap, as our family is all about newspapers.
