Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

Game Night

Yes, I know I skipped Christmas.  I'll get to that in the next few days...maybe...

Last night we had fun playing a silly game called "Hopla!"  I found it while doing some last minute Christmas shopping.  The box claims that it is a "hilarious game requiring steady  nerves and skillful patience."  It also says, "Every person will find themselves roaring with laughter and amusement."

It was pretty fun and there was lots of laughter.

How do you play Hopla?

Basically you flick the cones with a steady hand, watch the cups fly and score the hightest value in the Hopla net.

Choose your favorite color cones.

Smile because Momma has her new camera out AGAIN....




Flick that cone!

Hey!  Your cone landed inside my cone!  You stole my points!

Cones also make great nose warmers...


A mid-game snack break for some puppy chow...
Which piece has the most chocolate-peanut butter-powdered sugar on it?
Because that's the one everyone wants!

When a Hopla cone lands in the chandelier...
Game over!
