Music Monday – “South of the border, down Mexico way/That’s where I fell in love, when the stars above came out to play/And now as I wander, my thoughts ever stray/South of the border, down Mexico way” (And Our Wedding Slideshow!)

Shea likes to joke that I was the “best bride ever” when we were planning our destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera back in 2002.

Like a lot of parents, Shea and I struggle with how to make sure that our kids (especially Pace now that he’s getting older) understand that Christmas is not just about getting gifts but also about giving. Other years we’ve done things like put toys in Santa Anonymous Bins or other charitable giving.  But this […]

Saturday Snap – Great Photo of the Kids with Grandpa & Grandma

It’s amazing how having everyone looking at the camera *and* catching two kids smiling at the same time helps make a decent photo!
