I'm such a slacker.  I also meant to post some pics of Ayla's Lalaloopsie party in December.  I have to admit, I spent an awful long time on the decorating, cupcake toppers, etc. and not so much time actually planning the party.  I wish I had come up with some better things to do.  I did buy her a game where you hide the Lalaloopsie (I know, I probably could have made that game myself, but she asked for it specifically- and she gets everything she asks for because we have to come up with enough stuff for birthday and Christmas- except for a bird.  She didn't get a bird).  They were quickly bored with the game, then they watched the Loopsie movie on Netflix.  If I were more awesome, they would have made a cute craft or something.  Whatever.  I have to say, after that party I thought I might be happy if I never saw another Lalaloopsie again.  But then I saw Little Miss Muffet and several other fairy tale ones at The Family Dollar so that didn't last long. She's mine, by the way.  I have two of my own.  We are a little obsessed with them around here.  Btw, the button idea I got off Pinterest, of course.  They are just a couple different sized plates glued together and I punched circles for the middle. 


  1. So fun to read your blog cousin. I read your book Goldenrod and gave a review
    On Amazon ...fantastic accomplishment ! You have a darling family. Love to all from Mississippi my home for the last 13 years, Kathy Milligan Rasmussen ( can you believe I married a Rasmussen from Rexsburg Idaho ) it's a little confusing sometimes!

    1. It's fun to hear from you, Kathy. I stopped updating my blog but came across your comment recently. I think I'll try to post in this thing again soon. So glad you enjoyed Goldenhood. I didn't know you were living in Mississippi. Sounds like a grand adventure.
