I thought I would have to be the only one crazy enough to want to serve on a jury. I like traffic school, too. no joke.

I love your "Tag" information! I felt bad I didn't get a chance to meet you while I was in Utah. You had just left Kelly's before Noah and I arrived!

I love to golf too...although I'm terrible. :)

Can we come live in your "cul-de-sac neighborhood"? Can we also come with you to Hawaii and St. Thomas? That'd be lovely!

Preparing

(something like this... but worse) For the most part, I am new to all this parenting stuff. Yes, I have 2 bonus children that we've had full time since they were 7 & 10. But Aaron is a totally hands on dad. Doctor's appointments, parent-teacher conferences, permission to hang out with friends or have sleepovers... it's all him.
Of course, I help out when and where I can. Being at home when they get home from school. Driving to soccer and volleyball. Pushing for piano lessons. And just being generally supportive of the best dad in the world. (He totally is).
But back to what this is really about. This post is really about back to school shopping. And backpacks. And how this is my first time taking a child- my actual child- to buy a backpack for his first year at school. Maxwell starts kindergarten in August, and while I am mentally and emotionally preparing myself for that HUGE event that might make me cry tears of joy and sorrow... really what I am focused on is "t…

Snowball Cookies

[image]
It snowed this week. And though we don't have many family traditions, one that we started when we became a family was to make Snowball Cookies on the first snowy day of the season. And since we like cookies so much, we usually make them on other random, snowy days, too. They help ease my pain and anxiety over winter. You know-- carbs. 
There is nothing better than Snowball Cookies and hot chocolate on a snowy day.
Snowball Cookies 1 c. butter 1/2 c. confectioners sugar 2 tsp. vanilla 2 c. sifted flour 1 c. chocolate chips 1 c. chopped pecans (an option I don't use) Additional confectioners sugar (for rolling)
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add remaining ingredients, mix. Use a teaspoonful (I use a small ice cream scoop) of dough and roll into small ball. Bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly and roll in confectioners sugar. (I roll them twice.)

Let Sleeping Children Lie

It is always by a dim night light that I study my children's profiles and wonder how I could ever lose my patience with them.  And what is it about a quiet room disturbed only by deep baby breaths that forces me to think deeply on and judge my mothering sins? Tonight Charlie asked me if I would lay by him. "I'll be in your room folding clothes, so you don't need me to lay by you." Then Jack asked, "Mama, lay by me?" "Maybe ... when I am done folding your clothes." Because I am busy. So busy. So, so, so busy, with so many good, justifiable, meaningful, important things to do. And maybe if I can get all of those things done … So tonight after I admired my laundry, I looked at my boys waiting patiently for me. And as I laid down, I found my mind wandering, thinking of what I had to do next. While tracing the alphabet on Jack's spine, I thought of all the pressing matters that needed my attention right then: more laundry, wiping down the kitche…
