Princess Dalton

Dalton wants to be Princess Leia for Halloween and I'm inclined to let him.

About Us Page November 2013

Here we are!  I'm a mom, that's what I do.  Every day consists of cooking, cleaning, snuggling, fun stuff with the kids, crafting, mommying, and writing.

Miss Maggie is your average, spunky, imaginative first grader.  She loves dinosaurs, Legos, books, and school.  She loves to learn new things, invent new games, and tell stories.  She is really silly.

Dalton Boy is a crazy, tumbling, rumbling, climbing preschooler who gets into more trouble than I can dream of.  He likes the iPad, reading books, animals, whatever his big sister is doing, and strangers.  He's super friendly, especially with adults - if you look fun, you are his new best friend/grandma/brother/whatever.

Sienna joined our family in November 2012. She's got a mind of her own and the spunk to make it happen.

John is a CPA.  He spends his free time buried under the children's attentions.

1-2-3: Family Pictures Sneak Peek

This is not actually a sneak peek of our family pictures, but the two I took on my phone at the same location.  The location and lighting were fantastic. I can't wait to see the real shots from our photographer.

Margaret's November Journals

I love the end of the month when the First Grade journals come home! These first two are ones that she did for homework.

She was also in the Thanksgiving Play and had a speaking part.
