Caleb Visits Santa

December 16th, 2015 Anxiously awaiting his turn. It didn’t take Santa long to see how big of a Star Wars fan Caleb was. 2 of the 3 items on his list were related to Star Wars. Seeing how much Caleb enjoyed Star Wars, Santa gave him a Darth Vader goodbye. ...

Santa & Caleb

December 14th, 2014 Our church held a Choral Christmas Concert at the local Market Street and filled the shopping district with songs of the Nativity.  The atmosphere and music combined to make the evening absolutely beautiful.  We left determined to make it an annual tradition. A special treat was in store for this boy.  He couldn’t wait to see Santa! New to the Market Street this year was the 70 plus foot tree and light show set to Christmas...

It’s Christmas Time!

December 6th, 2014 We found out we were moving the week before Thanksgiving last year and had our house hunting trip the first week of December.  Needless to say, we didn’t get to decorate for Christmas.  Fast forward to this year.  I have always been a stickler about celebrating Thanksgiving 100% before moving on to Christmas.  But this year we broke the rules…We couldn’t wait to pull out the Christmas decorations that had been in boxes for 2 years!  So we decorated early (the Saturday before Thanksgiving!) but it has allowed us to enjoy it longer! It’s beginning...

A Lord of the Rings Halloween

October 31st, 2014 The first year was the Avengers. The second year was Star Wars. This year it was Lord of the Rings. We went all out this year and had a lot of fun in the process!  The theme was decided a few months ago and we have been working on it ever since.  This year was the toughest year yet to get everything pulled together for the 5 characters we were going to represent.  Jonah’s turned out to be the toughest as “Gimli” costumes are no longer sold.  We ended up making Gimli’s key piece, his helmet, out of a skateboarding helmet.  The process...

Jonamac Orchard

Week #35 of 52- August 29th We could not visit Chicago at the beginning of the fall season festivities and not get some Apple Cider Doughnuts!  So the boys and I headed to Jonamac Orchard (our favorite from our time in Chicago) on Thursday morning with that goal in mind.  We bought a few apples, of course, but the doughnuts were the highlight!  Why, oh why, can’t the South get in on this tradition?!? If you have never had an Apple Cider Doughnut, you need to. Since returning from Chicago, I have taken matters into my own hands. I have a jug of apple cider in the fridge and we...
