Big Red Firetruck

At Christmas, Aunt Lynne Cookie gave Sam a Big Red Firetruck. Now there is a story to this Big Red Firetruck. He absolutely loved it that day, but afterward, Sam’s brothers really got more enjoyment out of the truck (it shoots blue ping pong-like balls). Until recently. And now, I’ll share with you the lovely […]

Making a Baseball and Basketball

Cake, that is. With Sam’s second birthday just around the corner (AAAAAAACK!), I’ve started thinking about what to do for his birthday cake. I had about decided I’d do the busy-working-mom thing and order a cake from Kroger. But when I stopped by Sara’s house to drop off a Blues Clues cake pan (because she’s […]

Lily’s Birthday!

All week, Sam has been excited about “Happy Bir-day, Lily.” Even after Bear’s baseball game, as he decimated his post-game cupcake, he talked about “Sun-ay” and “Sing. Happy Bir-day, Lily.” And of course, “Have cupcakes, Sun-ay.” Imagine my disappointment Saturday morning when he woke up running fever. He was pretty pitiful all day. He wanted […]

We’ve Created a Monster

A Baseball Monster. (Well, all sports, really, but this post will focus on baseball.) Most toddlers ask for Elmo or Blue’s Clue’s or the like on TV. Sam does like those shows, but 9 times out of 10, he first asks for baseball, basketball, or football on tv. (Here is where you laugh at me […]

Another Successful Pesach

. . . And a shameless plug for a blog I contribute to and a great Interfaith family resource. But in all seriousness, we had a fantastic time at Mike and Susan’s yet again this year, and we’re always grateful for their gracious hosting of all us crazies! I’m sorry I don’t have any cute […]

Opening Day 11

Yep, folks, it’s baseball season (well, MLB, anyway, little league has been going for a few weeks now). The Rangers had Opening Day on Good Friday, April 6, 2012. And for the 11th year in a row, I got to attend with my department. It’s one of the many perks I get at my job-plus, […]

Happy Easter!

We had a wonderful and relaxing Easter Sunday. The Easter Bunny brought a big basket to our house (of which, of course, I did not get a picture) that included two movies, bubbles, water guns, airplanes, confetti-filled eggs, and some board books (for Sam, of course). I’m not sure who enjoyed the bubbles more, Sam […]

Easter Egg Hunt!

For those of you (Sigmas) who hear that phrase and want to run screaming from the room, I apologize. Allow me to attempt to replace those horrific images with these adorable ones. Sam’s school had an Easter egg hunt and Easter parade today. I’ll leave you with some cute videos. Heading out to hunt Easter […]

Welcome Spring

You know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers?” Well, in Texas, we like to be a little ahead of everyone else. But now that we’ve officially passed the first day of Spring on the calendar, I can officially say: Now, those of you who know me well (or even not that well) know that […]

Holy Crazy Wind, Batman!

In case you live under a rock (or are maybe still hiding under one from yesterday), the DFW metroplex was rocked by crazy storms yesterday. I heard one DJ say something about it being the worst tornado outbreak in this area since…well, before I was born (and that was a long time ago). I can’t […]
