Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

1. It has started! The stress of every parent during Christmas…. ELF ON THE SHELF SEASON! There is always that GUT WRENCHING FEAR that we will slip up one night and forget to.. well, YOU KNOW! I don’t want to SPILL THE BEANS in case someone’s child happens to come across this post and, in turn, becomes an UNBELIEVER of all things Christmas! 😉

2. So, here they are… meet our elves, Jolly-Jingles and Holly-Bells. Their names can be switched around to become 2 of our most favorite Christmas songs… “Holly Jolly” and “Jingle Bells.” Santa first sent Jolly to us several years ago as our family’s elf. But since our girls were a little uncomfortable changing in front of a boy elf in their bedroom, as well as using the bathroom in front of him if he happened to be in there, Santa decided to send us a girl elf last year. PROBLEM SOLVED!

Pj’s, coffee, Christmas music, and my beagle…. Life can’t get much better, my friends! ♡♡♡♡

They Aren’t Going Out In The Rain

They Aren’t Going Out In The Rain

This is soooo our little beagle, Gingerbread today. It has been raining here ALL evening, and I have had to FORCE her out of the door to go to the bathroom (WITHOUT a raincoat, may I add)

Our 3 year old keeps trying to CONVINCE me that we can simply teach her to use the potty like she did, but yeah…. I don’t think that is going to work. But if it does, you may just see us on the 5 o’clock news! 😉

Our Road Trip Last Weekend!

Our Road Trip Last Weekend!

Hi Friends! I just realized that I never shared our little road trip with y’all from last weekend! I meant to post some pictures much sooner, but we were so busy visiting with family, and enjoying the beautiful weather outdoors, that we didn’t have time to compile it into 1 post until now.  So, here are some of the fun things we did while we were gone, along with a few pictures that we took.Continue reading

Happy Anniversary Gingerbread!

Happy Anniversary Gingerbread!

Two years ago, on this very day, we adopted this ADORABLE little beagle! And what a WONDERFUL decision we made! At the time, we weren’t quite sure whether or not it was the best decision since we had 4 small kiddos to take care of (a full time job!), as well as a very sick boxer who had cancer at the time. Continue reading

Happy National Doggie Day!

Happy National Doggie Day!

Hi Friends, and Happy National Doggie Day! This is the day to CELEBRATE with your little fur babies! Today, we are celebrating with our sweet little beagle, Gingerbread Dandelion! (Yes, our oldest daughter named her… Couldn’t you tell?) HAHA! Oh well, it really suits her well.Continue reading

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

Reason No. 143 To Homeschool

This is just another reason as to why we have been LOVING homeschooling! It has been raining here in Louisiana for 2 days straight! (Which we aren’t complaining about since it has not rained in over 2 weeks) It has been so HOT and DRY that our ground is cracking, and our poor plants and grass have been dying… even with regular watering. So, as y’all can imagine, we have welcomed this much needed rain with OPEN ARMS! It has also tremendously helped to cool our home down with the HIGH HEAT ADVISORY that we have been under.Continue reading

ALERT: This May Be The Cutest Picture Ever!

ALERT: This May Be The Cutest Picture Ever!

A good friend sent me this ADORABLE picture the other day and said that it reminded her of our youngest daughter and our puppy, Gingerbread. And she COULD NOT have been more CORRECT! If they had enough hair, there is NO DOUBT in my mind that they would be sporting some curled do’s while in their robes, drinking their MORNING COFFEE! Which they both LOVE COFFEE! HAHA! Wonder where that got that from? 😉

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture Collage

Five things you should know about this picture collage:

1.) Introductions first.. This is our youngest daughter, Savannah, who is 3! And our little beagle puppy, Gingerbread Dandelion (Our oldest daughter named her, Haha!). We got Ginger when Savannah was a baby, so they have grown up together. At this point you could say that we now have 2 toddlers in our home.Continue reading
