Happy Halloween!

All three kids carved their own pumpkins (grants is a dog), I sewed with faux fur for the first time (a coat and a very furry dog suit!) and good times were had all around. (I love the sewing challenge of making costumes and will miss these days when they are gone).

Hapde burfday Jack


My dearest Jack, 

17?! I’ve been writing all of our adventures in this space since you turned 1. You’ve gone from
A fluffy, challenging baby (who I could never sort out) to a tall, lanky young man (who helps me sort it out). 

I can hardly believe it’s your last year in high school. Everything from here on out feels foreign and unknown (and more than a little weird since all those things are now completely in YOUR control). 

And I am certainly suffering a little bit from a bad case of the “lasts” - last this, last that. What a difference from all the years of “firsts” it is. 

You are quickly becoming everything I had ever hoped you would be and so much more. My number one wish for you remains unchanged - that you find happiness and contentment wherever you land. Life is just too short to spend it unhappy, and no amount of money makes up for that. 

Love you always,

Hapde burfday grant!

Dear grant, 

Today you are 9! 

You’ve decided that “9 is fine” and I couldn’t agree more. One more year until my last baby is double digits! 

You are such a great kid. Kind, caring, friendly, empathetic , curious, and smart! Always asking questions, a great speller (you’ve been hiding that), your sisters best friend. 

I’m so happy you are back at school this year. You needed that feeling of success again. Plus chess club and sign language club! 

You are really starting to grow into yourself, and I’m sure you are going to great things. 

Happy birthday my awesome little dude, love you.
