Sugar and Spice and…Boogers?

I have discovered a few things about little girls that I previously didn’t know before becoming a Mommy to two of them. Weird, I know considering I am one! I discovered that in a matter of a moment you can have a sweet little girl twirling around as a ballerina or a Princess like Cinderella, to a little girl who has suddenly morphed into someone who now resembles, Princess Fiona off of Shrek with her bodily functions and boogers! In those moments I ask myself, “What happened to sugar and spice and everything nice!”

So welcome to “Sugar and Spice and……Boogers?”

The main purpose of this blog is for my girls.  You will see anything from daily activities, SAHM ramblings, recorded milestones for my girls, to homeschooling adventures.

Thank you for joining us on this journey!!!  🙂


2016 In Review

It’s been almost a year since my last post.  What a crazy, fun, BUSY, and beautiful year 2016 was for my family.  

My last post was in Feb 2016. I was pregnant with my son, Kalvary.  He was born in May.  As soon as I was released for physical activity I started packing to move.  We moved at the very end of August and we are finally falling into a good rhythm.  

Kalvary is almost 8 months old.  He is finally, well maybe 30% of the time, sleeping well at night.  Having an infant, two other small children, and homeschooling on top of all of my other every day activities, our family blog has taken a backseat.  I am hoping that 2017 is going to remedy that.  😉. I’ve missed posting and I’ve missed our followers.  

I have a lot to catch you up on.  So be prepared for lots of posts coming your way.  For now I will leave you with this sweet spelling worksheet that Kensington just completed.  Seeing her try and sound out and spell certain words melts my heart.  

I am posting this from my phone because my daughter is using the computer for school at the moment. 😬. 

How did we get here?

1625624_10202128351823957_2105875888_nHow did we get here?  Today we celebrate 9 years together!  NINE!

I know to some, nine years is just a drop in the bucket, but not to me.   Nine years ago I came back to life and my heart became alive again.

(Currently staring at a blank page.  Wondering how in the world am I suppose to express what my heart is wanting to say?!)

Even now, I still often question, Why?  Why would He want to marry, me?  Even after all you knew, you still chose, ME!

Your love has always been constant and unconditional.  You chose to love me, even when I didn’t know how to love myself and when I wasn’t very lovable at times.   Even Still. 😉1724482_10202128352023962_783448039_n

I pray that our girls marry a man that loves them as well as you have loved me.  I pray our son has the integrity and the humbleness of his, Father.  I pray our kids will always have eyes to see the best in people and will always choose to have a fierce love for their families.

1604877_10202128343743755_1519498293_nThank you.  Thank you for always being the man that God knew I needed.  Thank you for always loving me and not choosing to run the other way.  Thank you for blessing me with four amazing children and allowing me to be a SAHM and not only striving to meet all of our needs but also our “wants!”

Happy Anniversary, Babe!  I love you!





Kensington gets her 1st official haircut.

I don’t know who was more nervous.  Kensington or Mommy!  She did very well.  She patiently sat in her chair and waited for Brooke to finish her hair.  Kensington didn’t know what to expect.  She asked if it would hurt and she was afraid she was gonna cut all of her hair off.  After some reassurance, I think she got pretty excited.  She got the ends trimmed up and layers put in.  Now hopefully her hair will be easier to manage.   I can’t wait to see how her natural curls fall.

She loves her new cut!  ☺️. Thank you, Brooke!!!!
Before:  Her hair when wet was below her bottom.
