A Special Holiday

I apologize for being a bit absent this last week.  Christmas happened… and then the day after that, well—this happened… I am a very proud Auntie to a perfect baby girl. More on both special days soon! And a big congratulations to my sister and her newly expanded family!

Goodbye to My Dad

Goodbye to My Dad

In the last few minutes my dad became a retired man.  He had half of a day to work today, and then he was done.  After thirteen years of being a protestant chaplain at a maximum security prison he has just left those walls keeping so many in forever, never […]

A House, A Party & A Parade

A House, A Party & A Parade

I have been missing in action here in the blogosphere for the last week or so.  Real life took precedence.  About two weeks ago we officially became homeowners.  A great big house on two and a quarter acres.  In need of some renovations to make it perfect for us, but […]

Fall with Friends and Family

We had a wonderfully classic fall weekend with family and friends.  Saturday we met several of our favorite people at a great place nearby.  The kids played.  We watched them use an authentic apple cider press.  We went for a hayride.  We saw pumpkin patches and horses.  We went hiking […]

Ms. Marcy’s Surprise Party

Ms. Marcy’s Surprise Party

One of my best friends turned thirty on Friday.  She would much prefer to call it the first anniversary of her twenty-ninth birthday, but it was the big three-oh.  For months she has been dreading it.  She has contemplated grand trips to distract her.  She has thought about not emerging […]

We have had an eventful, busy and enjoyable holiday weekend.  There are many posts to write about all of the wonderful things we got to do.  But when reviewing the festivities and debating what to write about first I was a bit torn. In the end I decided to forgo […]

Medical Worries and Brotherly Shenanigans

The past week at Maison Desrochers has been hectic. First, while the boyz were playing at the campground in my previous post, Gabriel tripped and fell.  He managed to fall onto a stick that scraped his cheek and injured his left eye.  His left eye was left a little worse […]

Mother’s Day Moments

Mother’s Day Moments

Mother’s Day this year was a festival of flowers. What mom wouldn’t be tickled pink with that? Well, of course there are those who are allergic to flowers, I suppose. But thankfully I am not counted among them. Instead, I basked in the blooms brought my way this past weekend. […]

Family Festivities

Family Festivities

Easter was a wonderful time of family visiting and time spent together. Whether it was the numerous Easter egg hunts at all of the different houses throughout the weekend, or time spent eating around big tables and laughing with aunts and cousins for hours, it was comforting and beautiful. By […]

Back from Shawnee & a Shoutout to Syracuse

Back from Shawnee & a Shoutout to Syracuse

I got back from my weekend away yesterday evening. After getting home and dropping my bags and atrocious amounts of scrapbooking paraphernalia in my mudroom I made the couch my home for the evening. I vegged and watched the ridiculously long and drawn out Oscar show and went to bed. […]
