What To do on Spring Break – Day 2

This was Saturday, which was technically the first day of Spring Break, but I am counting it as Day 2. The kids had a blast playing up in the woods and outside on this fine Saturday before Easter Sunday. My oldest and youngest went outside first, it meant I couldn’t take a shower because it was a beautiful day and there was no time for Mama to shower. I just threw some clothes on and fixed my pigtail braids and ventured outside with them. They had fun being goofy, I called it a yoga lesson. My middle child, Aj, ventured […]

Meal Number 1 for Thanksgiving – with my Dad, Sister and Others #happilyblended #thanksgiving

This year I had my children for Thanksgiving, their Dads and I split every other year when it comes to this particular holiday, so I have my three children on odd years. On the even years they spend that day with their Dad’s. Not knowing where Thanksgiving Day would be spent upon hearing that my Gram wasn’t hosting this year, made me quite sad. I then realized it is our first year as a blended family unit so we could always make up a new tradition being that we are a “new family” this holiday season for the first time. […]

This past weekend my daughter had her 11 year birthday celebration! Some family came and her friends came. There were snacks, music, fun and laughter – cake and ice cream and presents. Miss Ki got all dressed up in my skirt and an old shirt I had given her as she waited for guests to arrive… My little girl isn’t a little girl anymore … I can’t believe she is now 11 and that next year she will be in Junior High. Sigh. After Miss Ki got all dressed up she proceeded to the backyard to ensure her birthday picnic […]
