December 23, 2011


This darn Rockstar Jacket has been haunting me for a month!  And now, we’re 2 days from Christmas, and Santa can finally check it off the list!  Since Nick Jr failed their loyal viewers by not offering a Rockstar Jacket, like the Fresh Beat Band boldly tells listeners to put on (again, a zillion times a day), Santa’s […]

Jordan’s health challenges and celebrations have been a focus of my blog, my life really, since I can remember.  But when our family grew, we made way for new challenges and new opportunities for overcoming them.  Karter has been an easy child since day #1, but that’s not to say that she hasn’t given us […]
