well. you would think a post about april would be super short, considering we spent the first week on spring break, and all of that was detailed in previous posts. but, alas, sometimes when there’s not much excitement going on, these miscellaneous monthly posts get a lot more attention. or so it is in this […]
spring break 2023bryson city day.
our second day of spring break was a little drizzly and overcast, so we figured it was a good day to do some shopping and exploring in bryson city. you know, making sure we were close to shelter. but before we hit the city, we drove up “the road to nowhere” to walk through the […]
spring break 2023. wesser bald fire tower hike.
for our first big spring break adventure, we dragged the kids out on a three-ish mile hike to the wesser bald fire tower. it was relatively uneventful. derek wasn’t feeling great and ike was nursing a sprained ankle, so they took their time, while i forged ahead with the girls. we started out a little […]
spring break 2023…
for spring break this year, we packed up and headed to an airbnb, in the wilderness of the nantahala national forest, on the tippy western end of north carolina. as the children grow, so does the volume of our “luggage” (reusable shopping bags, mostly), making packing the back of the subaru feel like the most […]
march mayhem (madness was taken).
turns out. march was busy. or at least that’s what my photographic evidence of march is telling me. aside from the items i will detail in this post, there was a cake, a big school project, a home improvement project, and a weekend bucket list getaway. now here’s the other stuff that happened.

ok. so here’s the stuff that happened in january, excluding spontaneous trips to western new york to watch the bills playoff game vs. the dolphins, isaac’s 16th birthday festivities, and the one cake i made. spoiler alert. the rest is sort of boring. but here goes. lets begin with some happenings while i was away […]
well. isaac is sixteen.that’s crazy, right? we kicked off his birthday festivities the weekend before his birthday, with a friend sleepover. anna made him a cookie cake and took the liberty of decorating it with a potato buffalo bills logo. (the backstory is that in josh allen’s rookie year, he was in an nfl promotional […]
december of ’22 miscellany.
aaaaaand. here’s my obligatory post about the in between moments of the last month of the year twenty twenty two anno domini. firstly, anna’s basketball season continued on. the games are not all that exciting to watch. a lot of turnovers, jump balls, and fouling. not a lot of scoring. and anna doesn’t play much, […]
christmas related activity of 2022
i think i mentioned it in my cookies post, but i really was not feeling the christmas spirit this year. i really don’t know what was up. maybe it’s because the kids are older and not really into the fun things we used to do. or because the pandemic has made everyone dead inside. but […]
reluctant christmas cookie mayhem.
