Sundays are for Family and Friends

“make today great” Today is one of those quiet Sundays. Allie and Jonathyn are both working, and Anthony is on a skiing trip. Isaiah will bring the girls, and since my niece Giana is on spring break, she will spend the day with us, I also invited my good friend Deby. I got up nice…

Saturday Morning with the Girls

“the best thing about memories is making them” Saturday mornings are always fun when the girls come over. Nyla always wants to bake with me when she comes over, so we agreed to make chocolate croissants. While I was preparing to bake, Nyla decided she wanted to play with Mia and Maliah, so they had…

Shrimp Scampi with a Twist

“believe in your own magic” Since Isaiah is between sports, I don’t have to pick up the girls, and only have Maliah on Thursdays. So, I started going through one room at a time, because before you know it I will be back to my normal schedule with the girls. While organizing, I am thinking…

Another Sunday Funday

“do small things with great love” Today will be a day full of family, friends, and a lot of laughter. I love the Sundays when all my children have the same days off. I also invited our best friends, Shannon and Mike, over for dinner. I woke up nice and early to make dessert, I…

Valentine’s Dinner

“love is friendship that has caught on fire” Every Valentine’s Day I would make my family a special dinner. Most of the food would be red. I always make the same roasted red pepper sauce over spaghetti and a red heart cake. This year I was sick, so I had to make it a week…

Day 2 with Nyla and Maliah

“granddaughters are the flowers in the garden of life” Another afternoon with Nyla and Maliah, all Nyla could talk about was what experiment she was going to do when she got home. She decided on the same bubble one that she made the night before, again she had bubbles all over the place, she is…

Popcorn Night

“love is sharing your popcorn” Memories of my sister Carla and I making popcorn are the best. We would experiment making all different kinds of popcorn. My sister would add the weirdest ingredients, sometimes it would come out good other times I made her eat it by herself. Our best was caramel popcorn, it always…

Fun With Nyla and Maliah

“beautiful girls, you can do amazing things” Today, is the beginning of a 3 day sleepover with Nyla and Maliah. Allie and Mia went away for competition, and Isaiah has work and basketball, so I have the pleasure of having them stay here. Nyla has a lot of things planned to do with me; she…

Another Day in Boston

“it’s time for a road trip” Every time we have an appointment in Boston, we make a day of it so we can go to Wahlburgers, my favorite restaurant. We try different locations while in Boston. So far, we have been to 4 different ones. Fenway is the most recent one that we visited. Our…
