5 on Friday


Sweet baby (toddler) K man is 18 months today.  What???  He is growing, walking (running), talking, understanding, forming opinions, throwing tantrums when things don’t go his way, smiling, giggling, watching, learning.  As I rocked him to sleep today for his nap, I just looked at his sleeping face.  I am so thankful to be his momma.  He is a special little boy.


Excuse the piggy tail in the background!


Thanksgiving break/celebrations was a wonderful time.  I walked away from each gathering full (very full), thankful, and with a positive attitude.  Nothing is ever perfect when you pack that much family time into just a few short days, but this year it really was a lot of fun.  K got to play with cousins and we got to spend ample time places before our next required appearance.

It was just way too dang depressing to not have any Christmas decorations up in the house.  So, we got the smallest tree ever (2 ft) from Target, I pulled a few decorations out of storage and we added just a touch of festive-ness to the apartment.  Instant mood lifter!  Who’s idea was it to not put up Christmas decorations anyway??

It is cold!!  Super cold.  I figured it would be a nice way to break up the morning by getting out of the house and running a quick errand to Dillons.  That was stupid.  Really stupid.  What was I thinking?  It was nice and warm once we got into the store, but all the stages in-between were totally not worth it.  Guess we are stuck inside the rest of the day!  Good thing I have ingredients to bake with!!

Also, I have seen all those posts on Facebook about how you are not supposed to strap your child into the car seat with a big winter coat on.  I get the logic and I understand the danger, but can someone tell me exactly how this is supposed to look in  freezing cold temps?  When we were using the baby carrier it was a lot easier because we just loaded up on blankets.  Now that K is much bigger, I struggle with exactly how this scenario plays out without a lot of changes (coat on, coat off, coat back on…etc…)


One of Chad’s favorite meals is Spaghetti.  Unfortunately, this meal is way down on the list for me, but I try to make it (somewhat often) as to keep peace around here 🙂  It was a lucky day last night because both Daddy and Ko were very happy with my supper selection!

  1. If you figure the coat thing our, please let me know! It feels like a lose lose situation: put your kid in potential danger with a coat on in the carseat or potentially get super sick because they aren’t wearing a coat and its cold?!
