Our Own Alice in Wonderland

by lonna on November 1, 2011 · 8 comments

This year for Halloween was pretty much my last year of “helping” the kids decide what costumes they wanted to choose.  (Side note Harrison was two things this year because in the end he was too cool for my ideas.) On another note I decided that I was going to make Gwen’s Alice in wonderland [...]


What a camera is supposed to do…

by lonna on October 26, 2011 · 8 comments

James is a fancy camera guy. So the last camera he purchased had all the bells and whistles so that he could pretty much do everything you might ever need to with it. I tried to read the manual and I was lost…way lost reading through it. Then my friend Katie published a book and [...]

  You may not know this about me but I often think how much I might enjoy being a celebrity…it is true. So yesterday when I got back from parent teacher conferences with the kids, little did I know that my debut was about to happen. The local FOX 7 van drove up and the [...]


Just So You Know

If you were wondering about the photos from the last post I will tell you who is in what picture just for laughs. In the first one it is actually…ME! Yes that is right, a good 28ish years ago, as you can see from the crayons on the table Gwen gets her love of all [...]

September 28, 2011

  As Stella nears the 12 month mark James and I were looking back on some photos of her and comparing them to Gwen at that age. What we found left my jaw hanging, not only do they look more similar than I had imagined, but I am sure that when I am older telling [...]

Last Call for Family Fun!

August 16, 2011

This first picture I just had to put in here because all the kids are laughing and Gwen was the one tackled for once and Stella is laughing so hard, she thinks Gwen is just the best toy ever. Summer is nearly over and we were lucky enough to cram in one more outing with [...]

mid year resolutions…

July 26, 2011

Hello out there…well maybe I should just say hello to my mother in law Sylvia who has been after me for two months now to update this little blog.  It is not that I have not wanted to do so or even that I was too lazy, but I have had my share of lazy [...]

We are just animals at the zoo!

May 7, 2011

Ah the zoo. I just love taking the kids to see all the animals and letting them run wild and free, and sometimes pretending that they are with someone else, just kidding.  Earlier this week we took a little trip up to the Waco zoo with Christa, Lexi, Brooklynn, and Katie Hall ( Christa’s mother [...]

See Me Run…

May 6, 2011

There is a song that we used to listen to as kids that talks about running and spinning in circles until you drop…well we kind of took that song to heart in the last few weeks. Starting with the Easter round up, yes I did say Easter. I will keep it brief and just add [...]
