The Life of a Domestic Goddess

Happenings in my life and my thoughts of being a nutty mother of three spirited children. Art. Love. Good times and hard. In a nut through my eyes.

Just after this next nap I take...

What is new for this year, my predictions, my hopes and wants/needs?

Well three big things checked off my list this year already are:

1. Parley is in the double digits now! My 10 year old boy!

2. We returned successfully from a 2 1/2 week fun Christmas vacation
in Cheyenne, WY with Dan's family!

And 3. My littlest brother was married to a wonderful girl, Kim!

Laugh more, Love deeper,

Loving the North West

There is just something magical to me when
in November
flowers can still bloom.

I grew up in the western states in the north for the most part of my life except for 5 months in Georgia and 4 in Florida.

So to see a daisy blooming amongst all the dead and rotted ones,
(because I have been too lazy and busy to get outside and clean up!)
and a rose bud ready to burst, my simple pleasure-o-meter always pops off the charts!!

Ahhhhhhhh! Sweet bliss!

So Happy November.

No matter where your are or in the situation you are in.
Tender mercies are everywhere!

A time for Birthdays

Preston's Birthday is 4 days before Dan's.
We headed over to Spokane to visit my sister and her family for Preston's big day.
He wanted to celebrate #7 it over there.

We had lots of fun!!

Then time for Dan's matter how old you get, (#37)
indeed you should have that many candles to blow out!!

What a flame on that baby!
I made it easy for him and put them all
together though so he wouldn't get so winded!!

His favorite present of all was inspired
from a phrase our sweet, quick-witted daughter calls her father.

(Especially when he asks her to behave or
to do something contrary to what she wants to do.)

Thus.....the "Benevolent Dictator" was born.

Isn't that an oxymoron?

You got to love parenthood, or at least find the
moments to laugh at it before you crack!
Especially when you wonder what alien form
took control of your child's mind and attitude,
praying someday you can bring them back to earth.
