So Much Turkey

David and I were married in May, which makes Thanksgiving our first, big, family holiday as husband and wife. What that actually means is that David got to see more of my crazy. I have something called OCM-Obsessive Compulsive Motherhood. I was never a neat freak growing up, I never had a problem with dirt,... Continue Reading →

Mount Karaffa

I have been a little MIA here. I am going to blame that on a little thing we like to call Mount Karaffa. I know you cannot hear me, but I am laughing a bit like a crazy person over here at my use of the word "little". There was nothing little about this mountain... Continue Reading →

Karaffa Party of 9

33 days. That is how long three of our children were away. That is how long our family felt incomplete. That is how long we counted down to their return. They are home! Yesterday morning, David and I, with Madalyn, Meredith, Josiah and Charlotte, jumped in the Enterprise (the family van) and drove to Orlando... Continue Reading →
