Liddi Turns 1

Liddi Turns 1

“I don’t know what that is, but I do know that I WANT IT!” “What’s all this singing about, and why’s everyone looking at me?” “Guess I’ll just have to do the touch test first.” “Thanks, but I don’t need anything to confine my piece of deliciousness here.” “Mmm…let it roll around the tastebuds…” “Gah! I LOVE […]

Corban turns 5!

Corban turns 5!

We mostly do family birthday celebrations, but for a select few birthdays, we’ve chosen to celebrate with friends. Age 5 is one of those birthdays. Which I don’t even know why I mention it because there’s no way I have a five-year-old. At least, I didn’t. And then, boom, I did. Cray cray. For this party, Corban chose […]

Jae Riz is Three!

Jae Riz is Three!

On Jaeda’s birthday, the zoo threw a party for their members. Jaeda was certain it was for her. James took off work, a few family members drove down, and we made a wonderful day of it! Aunt Hoopie still has a broken foot, but all the kids got to take turns riding in her wheelchair.  […]

First Mother’s Day with Three

First Mother’s Day with Three

Having Mother’s Day close to your birthday (ohmyword am I talking about my birthday again?!) is the best. A week’s worth of celebrations or extra sweet nothings (like drinking juice for breakfast mmm). This Mother’s Day, we felt like celebrating with another family, a mom whose little son allowed her to celebrate this day for the […]

Jon & Sam

Jon & Sam

Jon and Sam graced us with their beautiful presence within their first few weeks after finishing their freshman year…of college! They’ve been attending Liberty University in Virginia, so our visits with them are even sweeter than before, just knowing that they’re so much less frequent. While they were here, my birthday present from my mom […]

The day of my birth.

The day of my birth.

  I thought celebrating my actual birthday with a day at the zoo with a friend was quite fitting for this stage of life. I picked up one of my free Light Rail drinks on the way. It was the perfect mixture of sun and briskness, and we had an absolutely splendid time. I was […]

Loving my neighbors and my sisters.

Loving my neighbors and my sisters.

The Saturday before my birthday, I invited my dearest friends to a surprise party…for them! Turning 30 really got me thinking: how do I want to celebrate? To celebrate what the Lord has done–grown my love for His people and those not yet His people. Celebrate things I love such as planning and surprises and […]

Anniversary #8 is getting closer to #10!

Anniversary #8 is getting closer to #10!

  Several months ago, James won an auction at his work for a room at the Loews’ near O’Hare Airport in Chicago. We knew right away that we’d use it for our anniversary. Our eighth anniversary, to be precise. If you’ve been around for many anniversaries, you know that I basically shout It’s our anniversary! everywhere we […]

Corban turned four!

Corban turned four!

Corban has apparently found out that being four means playing with Legos, not Duplos. I really thought we had another year, but once we did the Lego Scavenger Hunt at the library, he could barely bring himself to look at his Duplos. Okay, I totally exaggerate; he still played with them all the time but only because he didn’t have access to […]

An open house is a family affair.

An open house is a family affair.

Many hands make light work, they say. That’s why you should have ten kids, my parents say. Even when they can’t all make it (missed you, Mary!), we treated that party like a BOSS. Here’s a little breakdown of the big celebration. PREP WORK/DECORATIONS Ruth and Abby’s job was lots and lots of kid entertaining. […]
