Baby Girl Can’t Catch A break…


Well, I guess she did catch a break! But, really?!!

Seems to bother mama more than it does her…


It would only happen to Kate…

SITTING (everyone has accused her of climbing or not doing what she was supposed to be doing…nope she was sitting) at the kitchen table, she shifted her weight and fell, the chair landing on her hand and of course breaking her thumb.

She’ll be in her newest accessory for about three weeks.  Then she should be as good as new!!

You know Kate… doesn’t seem to phase her.  Just rolls with the punches. 

I learn more from my girl each and everyday.

A Day at The Zoo

So I guess it’s tradition…

Father’s Day we go to The Southwick Zoo!!  Our trip last year!

It’s great that we go with Justin & his crew so Mike can spend time with him and we love any excuse to see Logan, Mason & Conner.

Our day in pictures!


Father’s Day Shout Out

There are two very important men that I need to pay tribute to on Father’s Day.

First is  my dad


My dad is a kind and hard working man.  He continues to guide and care for all of his children (although we are all adults) and his grandchildren.  The love and admiration that he has for Katy & Patrick melts my heart.  It is wonderful to see the bond that the three of them share.  They both adore their Papa.  Thanks dad for always being there for all of us.  We love you!

Next up…

My Rockin Husband


Is there anything you can’t do?  I am so happy to have you by my side on this journey through parenthood.  You make all our days great!   I can’t imagine my life without you. I could not have picked a better daddy for Katy & Patrick.  Our days are not always easy…but you make the manageable.  You go out of your way for others, you are always willing to help.  Some day's I wonder how you do it all, and so effortlessly.  You support all my crazy endeavors and help me meet my goals.  You are the bomb.

  I love you more  then you will ever know.

Happy Birthday Baby

Today we celebrated Mike’s Birthday.

I had class ALL day… but I made sure I drilled in Katy’s head to say  “Happy Birthday Daddy"! as soon as Mike came in her room… (and she did)

So because I was in school all day and we had the crew coming over for cake… Mike cleaned and cooked and even made his own birthday cake.  (yes, I am embarrassed… I offered to stay home and do it! I did decorate it when I got home!)


Seriously, how do we celebrate the guy who as my mom said is the one we all lean and depend on. 


We sing Happy Birthday!! We hang Super Dad banners!! We shower him in kisses and hugs!!



Happy Birthday Murph!!

We love you!
