Christmas Cookie Rules

**Disclaimer** I cannot take credit for these rules (thanks for the email, Dad!), though I will vow to follow them religiously.

First Sam-and-Mommy Trip

From December 15 through the 20th, Sam and I drove to League City to visit Grandma and Grandpa. This was the first time I was brave enough to drive that far with Sam by myself (yes, I know I’m a weenie). Daddy has a big project going on at work, so he couldn’t take time […]

Googled

I know I’ve been sort of MIA lately on here, and most of that can be attributed to a very busy¬†“busy season” at work. And rest assured, dear reader(s? maybe?) that I’m getting back to it now that I can find my desk. And I’ve started here, with my latest post on the fabulous Texas […]

*Sigh* Boys

Published by under Uncategorized

This just happened at my house: Daddy: Sam, watch out (proceeds to fart – loudly – right near Sam’s head) Sam: (steps back, looks up) HA HA HA! (monster steps away from Daddy, giggling) Such is life with boys.
