Our Helpers

We never take the cans downstairs to the pantry.  The boys always do it, and they love to help.  Here's a fine example of the results. (EDIT: These were undented cans prior to the boys taking them downstairs).

A taste of what's to come...


There's still a lot of work ahead.

No tricks here.  Honest.

Shout Out to Ashlee!


For all of you who may not know, my amazing sister-in-law Ashlee is having a big birthday today! I've only know her for a little over four years now but she has undoubtedly been a great blessing in my life. She's been through quite a bit in her young life and has helped me get through a few trying times of my own. Although she's only done my hair once (it's not like I'm around much for her to do it!) she's a very talented hairdresser, I also know that she seems to always be doing fun things for friends and family members, helping them out however she can, and she remembers everything! We always get birthday and anniversary wishes as I'm sure you all do, too from her. More than anything else, though, she's an incredible mom; definitely someone I will always look to for guidance and inspiration in motherhood. Her happy kids and husband will attest to that! She's the kind of person that seems to have everything put together but is able to remain "real" and doesn't act like life is always perfect. I've grown to admire her so much and love her like a sister. I wish we lived closer, especially when there's bowling birthday parties with cake!

Ashlee, I hope your birthday has been great, that your party's a blast, and that you look forward to each new year of life!
Happy Birthday!
