Now, what has happened in my little girls life since a last posted.. almost a YEAR ago?  My last published post was in September, and the most immediate thing after that was her two year birthday.  Since she’s shown to be our little artist, we threw her an Art themed party.  We did some crafts [...]

Hey everyone!  I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and has a yummy green beer today just because they can.  Mostly because I bet some of you don’t know what this holiday means anyway.  I’m not catholic so I never knew when I was younger that I was celebrating the patron saint of Ireland or [...]
