Yes! This…

Found this on  the “Finding Joy” blog:   when you feel like you don’t make a difference remember this. . . The way your child’s eyes light up when you pick them up from school. How you know just the right way to tuck sheets up and where to put the kisses goodnight. The infinite number of toilet paper rolls, ... Read More »

What were ya thinkin’ Wednesday? Winter Wardrobe

What were ya thinkin’ Wednesday? Winter Wardrobe

The girls insist on wearing t-shirts and shorts to bed every night. But in the morning it is a wee bit chilly at the Rasmussen house. Monday they solved this problem by wearing their new winter jackets, hats…and shorts. Whatever works!       Today at 10:00 send a quick text to your teen/preteen, just to let them know you ...

First Snowfall

First Snowfall

So the girls got up, ate breakfast and then headed outside to play in the snow. The first snowfall of every winter is always kind of special. This year we added the excitement of watching our “puppy” (60 lb Labradoodle) prance around in the snow. It was quite a site. Lots of giggles, lots of laughs! Watching your puppy enjoy ...

To Market We Go

To Market We Go

Anyone else’s fridge empty after the long MEA weekend? I’m off to the market (doesn’t that sound easy?). I loved this video becasue we do have sooooo many choices. But, before we even get to deciding whether we want the gluten-free organic seed crackers we have to decide which of the eight local “markets” we want to go to (or should ... Read More »

O-Target

O-Target

The twin girls are at that fun stage where they are starting to read everything.  They notice words everywhere.  Yesterday when we went to Target Cassie asked, “Why is there an ‘O’ in Target?” “There’s not Honey, why do you ask that?” She pointed to the Target sign and sure enough when you look at it there is an “O”. ...

The Countdown to Christmas

The Countdown to Christmas

All right, the guests are set to arrive in one hour.  I think I’m ready.  Not as ready as I would like to be but it will have to do.  There is nothing really cool I saw on Pinterest as a center piece, no new recipes, no papre-bagged candles lining the driveway…the bathrooms are clean and there will be green bean casserole, ...

On the Stage

Last Friday was the 4th grade Family Breakfast where all the fourth graders come in before school with their families, have breakfast and put on a short concert.  It is always super cute, they do it for every grade, and even though this was the sixteenth family breakfast I’ve been to (one for each kid, each year for the last ...

Christmas Crafts?

“Can I have the scissors?”  Cassie comes asks me while I’m eating my breakfast.  “Can I have some tape?” She asks a few minutes later.  I can tell she is busy at a project in the other room.  Based on her past track record with tape and scissors I’m a bit nervous, but I haven’t finished my Cheerios yet and ...

Dalmatians at Thanksgiving?

The other night we are all sitting around the dinner table and Cassie gets up, all of a sudden and disappears.  She comes back in a few minutes dressed in her Halloween costume, the dalmatian.  She goes about eating her dinner as if nothing happened. The upside is we have definitely gotten our moneys worth out of Cassie’s costume.  The downside, ... Read More »
