August - Tuesday, September 2nd 2014 11:05 AM
It's already September. How'd that happen? Each month seems to go by even faster than the one before. The last official month of summer went by in a blink. August got off to a...
July 2014 - Saturday, August 16th 2014 3:54 PM
I don't think I've ever had a month where I didn't look back and say, "It was a busy month!" July is no exception.  July 3rd, my dad and I went cherry picking one last time...

December was - you guessed it - busy. On Monday, Dec. 2nd, I accidentally bought our Christmas tree, Jeffrey. I would normally never get a tree that early but it just so...

In October the weather started to cool and we enjoyed several fall festivities - as well as some festivities that didn't really have anything to do with autumn. The first...
September 2013 - Tuesday, February 25th 2014 2:14 PM
