Off To The Races

June 27, 2011

Another summer weekend has come and gone and I am so sad because that means that June is almost a memory. Summer is racing by. The weekend temperature here in West Virginia wouldn’t have been any better if I could have handpicked a temperature because it was approximately 80 degrees (my IDEAL temperature) with very little humidity. I’ll […]

You Capture – Pretty

May 26, 2011

This week’s You Capture challenge is pretty. This will be a fun one. It was a pretty [hot] day for celebrating field day. (And I have a pretty little sunburn to show for it!) The kids had a lot of fun, especially doing the limbo.  It was pretty scary to watch my boy play pitcher during his last baseball game. […]

My Favorite Things {A Giveaway}

February 2, 2011

My day started with a mile-long to-do list. Topping the list was reaching the peak of Mt. Washmore and going to the grocery store because we were out of milk, juice, pop tarts and Dr. Pepper. I know, I know. We’re talking emergency here, folks. I got Alex ready and dropped him off at school. One […]

What I Learned This Week

August 16, 2010

This week I learned a few tidbits of helpful information. As always, I am sharing because that’s just the kind of gal I am. It’s been a doozie of a week here at the McResidence. We’ve been away more than we’ve been home and we’ve been waiting on the Board of Education to make a […]

I’m Feeling Particularly Rowdy!

July 18, 2010

It’s Monday again and that means it’s time for another edition of Not Me! Monday, brought to you by MckMama. And because I’m feeling particularly rowdy, I’ve compiled an uneven numbered short list of thing I most certainly did not do this past week… 1. I have not spent the better part of two weeks buying and […]

Some Last Minute Stuff

February 11, 2010

I’m packed. The itinerary is printed. I attempted (unsuccessfully, mind you) to complete the online personality instrument required for our strong-bonds marriage weekend. Power-cords, laptop bag, and iPhone are packed. Clothes for the boys are laid out. Lists are completed for medicines, and breathing treatments. The boys’ Valentines are packed and ready to take to Sunday […]

A Fly On The Wall

January 24, 2010

Our home is a joyful place. Except when two of its members are squabbling over the same version of Lightning McQueen. Or the youngest of its members forgets that his teeth are only for chewing food. Even then, the McResidence is a great place to be. Things seldomgo awry. The situation rarely escalates to a point where an […]

Thursday Thirteen – Courtesy of Stevie

January 14, 2010

Stevie has been asking me for weeks when he could “Take more pictures for Thursday Thirteen on your blog” and for weeks I’ve been putting him off. You know, because of child labor laws and all. But lo, last Tuesday was a snow day and after his limited amount of time on various electronic devices, he was […]

Bag Lady

December 28, 2009

We’ve had an exhausting, albeit fun-filled week here at the McResidence. There is a seemingly endless stack of CARS memorabilia and can you believe that Alex received TWO MORE STINKIN’ LIGHTNING MCQUEENS THAT HE DID NOT ALREADY HAVE? I would have bet the ranch that he had every Lightning McQueen known to man, but, hark, those […]
