Four Hens and a Rooster

Author: Kristen Daukas

Today, Mackenzie and I found ourselves alone, with a day ahead of us so we thought we’d do another one of the projects that she had found on Pinterest. It doesn’t seem like it was that long ago that Mackenzie was an only child and we were doing crayon art of a different kind. We looked at the original pin and decided that we wanted to do it a little bit differently, so we headed to Michael’s for the necessarymore

What are your favorite shows & movies you’re sharing with your kids? When the girls were younger, it seemed our TV was on all. the. time. One or both of us have always been fortunate enough to work from home and while that’s great for raising kids, sometimes those kids needed entertainment that was provided by someone/something other than mom or dad.

I was driving Mackenzie to work one day and we were talking about the big grand opening festivities that Mast was having over the weekend. I mentioned to her that one of the bands that was going to be playing there had a cousin of ours in it. Bear in mind he’s a distant cousin, but a cousin none-the-less.

What to Get Mom for Mother’s Day.. Mother’s Day is THIS WEEKEND which is the not-so-subtle hint that if you haven’t gotten Mom something, you better get on it. Or else. This woman is either the person who birthed you (or your spouse) or who birthed your children. Honestly, that’s reason enough. I could stop right there and be done with this post. But of course, I won’t. So, you’re not sure what to get Mom? Here are a few suggestionsmore
