My girlies (and I) love Harry Potter so even in Asia we couldn’t let this day go by without any acknowledgement. If you are a fan, you understand the significance of the day, if not, all that really matters that we had a fun Harry Potter themed party. The Sorting: To begin our day, we … More September 1, 2017
This was our trip to Kaohsiung: We had to run for the train, because we arrived at the station just as the train was preparing to leave. Running downstairs carrying strollers is something no one should ever have to do. Robert and I stood for the 50 minute train ride. We were late to the … More Botanical gardens – Kaohsiung, Taiwan
As we travel, we want a little normalcy in our lives. We need days at home, doing school (or what that means to us), chores, and just relaxing. The problem with that, for me, is that if I don’t make a point of getting out I never will. It won’t matter what country we are … More Chihkan Tower Tainan, Taiwan
In Hong Kong we mostly explored the area nearest to our hotel (given that we were slammed with jet lag!), but we were daring enough to venture farther out once in a while. We just aren’t theme park people (well, Robert and I aren’t), and there was no way I was going to try (and … More Hong Kong Science Museum, et al.
When I sent my hubby out to hide Easter eggs I told him to make it a challenge, don’t go easy on them! He really took my instructions to heart, this was the most challenging egg hunt ever!

For twelfthnight the girlies wrote, directed, and starred in a Christmas play called the Christmas Bear. They worked very hard on it. This hug happened after they finished performing it. Too sweet! These are the candles we used for our twelve days of Christmas and the … More 01/04/15 – 01/10/15
She is now 14. I feel very contemplative and melancholy about this, but also very excited for the person she is and the person she will become. As I look back on the last 14 years, I am truly shocked at how fast they have gone by. I am so eager to see what is … More 11/10/14
We had a very busy month, but I suppose every month is going to be chaotic with two babies. With school and Halloween activities the month just seemed to fly by! My goal is to get into the groove of taking pictures again so that when I start my new 365 project in January it … More October!
The girlies found a book on Reading Rainbow all about Valentine’s Day. There was a lot about the history and myths that surround the holiday and at the end was a guide for making valentines. This art project was the result. They love having different art supplies where they can get them without having to … More 06/30/13 – 07/06/13
