    He’s Baaack.

    Those of you who know me or have been reading my blog for a while know that I abhor board/bored games.

    Bean and Co.

    Sabrina came home a few weeks ago and we attempted to take her picture with the pets of the house, which is no easy task. Those of you who have tried taking pictures with your pets – particularly those of the feline variety – probably know what I'm talking about. We couldn't find Tilly-Roux anywhere in the house, which gave…

    Mary’s Sampler, Part 6

    It's the best time of year! Halloween is past, and it's time for the real fun to begin – with lots of baking, decorating, and counting down the days to Mom's turkey and Honeybaked Ham's ham and Dad's punch and Bre's (and  Josh's?) sweet company and Sabrina's snoozing-while-everyone-is-cleaning and Sophie's speedy texting and Mike's hollering at the tv because Tony…
