Hello everyone! This is officially my first post ever! I am so grateful to have my boys next to me right now helping me with the blog! They are the technology wizards of the family! I hope to bring you weekly updates about family, events and outings, food and recipes, craft and decorating ideas and projects. My hope is that I can now stay better connected with our friends and family both near and far. I will be posting photos soon so stay tuned!


This one is great for all your July 4th gatherings!

  1. YUM YUM looks good! I want to make it and eat it all myself! I LOVE this cozy, warm blog spot you have created and I am looking forward to learning some new tricks from you and hope you put on here some good parenting advice as well!! Thinking of you!

  2. Hi Kim,
    The new site looks great!!. I know I'll enjoy hearing all the news from you and the nephews. Tell the kids that they are going to have to take good care of you during your recovery.

    We're leaving Saturday for Colorado. We can't wait. If you want to see what Christa has been doing she also has a blog for her summer work. She has been suffering from acute altitude sickness but is finally adjusting to it I think. She has had to sleep with O2 to get by.

    We'll call when we get back. See you soon.
    Give the boys a hug for me.
