Grandma GJ and Gran-T: G’s We’re Thankful For

Gran-T and the Peanuts

Around 18 months I succumbed to the reality that I–a mom of twins–needed some alone time.

A Full Friday: PT and Pickleball

TX State Visit

Last year was the twin’s first official Halloween, although I think of this year as their first since Ellisa wasn’t home from NICU … Continue reading

Fall is here. Kinda.

So, I don’t have the energy to do the post I really wanted to do today, so instead I thought I would sum up an almost perfect “Fall” weekend (Fall is in quotes because the high is still in the lower 90’s). Friday night Charles, the kids, and I had a mini-picnic outside the condo … Continue reading
