What’s worse than somebody thinking you have chocolate on your lip? {$25 Amazon gift card giveaway}

December 27, 2012
Not chocolate

Yes, there is something worse than somebody thinking you have chocolate on your lip! Especially when that “chocolate” is a freckle (or maybe even a mole)! It’s when they come up to you and either a) attempt to get it off themselves of b) hand you something to get it off.  These things have both […]

Christmas With the Serious Family

We are all Texans’d out now. Each of us has out own shirt to wear Sunday for their game. And, we don’t have cable, so we won’t even get the game here. My sister says we should go to a local place that shows all games. In.Our.Texans.Gear. That should be fun.

Serious girls with Santa 2012

We finally got all three girls to see Santa at the same time! Whoot. This year, we found out that the Macy’s Parade Santa was going on tour and stopping at a mall near us. He arrived via bus (I think the reindeer are resting up) and was escorted by two of his elves. There […]

Holiday Dinner: Albert Bartlett Rooster Mashed Potatoes

December 19, 2012
Albert Bartlett Rooster Potatotes

One of the side dishes that is a must for us around the holidays is mashed potatoes. Even when we are counting calories and trying to go low-key, we have to have them. (And, even though the girls don’t like them…silly!) For Thanksgiving, we tried out the Albert Bartlett Rooster potatoes. They just launched into the […]

Personalized gifts make for fun Christmas presents

December 19, 2012
Custom Placemats

For the holidays, I try to find some sort of personalized gift for our girls and their friends. I think it’s nice for them to have their name on their things and it helps prevent fighting, too. Oh, and it also encourages them learning how to read and spell their name! Plus, who doesn’t like […]

What it’s like for a non-professional to take pictures of their 10 month old

December 18, 2012
Happy 10 months E

Dear E- Saturday, you officially turned 10 months old. It’s been a fun month (with some bumps and bruises along the way), but most of them have been pretty expected. It was a pretty gloomy day, so the best place I could find to take your picture was the kitchen. But, we made it work. […]

E and Mr. Serious

In addition to being absolutely heartbroken this weekend, I was also scared out of my mind at home. Mr. Serious was super sick. I was the chief caregiver and convinced him stay home from work Friday. He spent pretty much the whole day in bed. But, I think I get an F in taking care of […]
