TBT: Cookie Making Time

Our toddler really isn’t a toddler anymore.  She is without a doubt a little girl pre-schooler.  She recently saw an episode of Veggie Tales where the plot was how to share cookies.  So after we heard about Bob and Larry and the cookies for a few days, my wife decided it was time to teach […]

No Energy

I have no energy to do a post tonight.  It’s only Wednesday.  I had energy when I got home.  Got out in the heat and ran.  And then a 2 year old sapped it all away.  🙂 All is good.  She is asleep and soon we will be too. God Bless!
