Father’s Day Baptism for Nicholas

This year of 2021 has been dedicated to St. Joseph by the Catholic Church. Joseph was a big contender for the name of our first born son. It was fitting that Nicholas’ baptism fell on Father’s Day and at Mass we consecrated ourselves to Jesus’ foster father and pray to him throughout the year and…

Pentecost to Memorial Day 2021

It must be divine providence that our Bishop lifted the mask and social distance mandate of the churches right before Pentecost. We enjoyed a wonderful mass full of loud voices and smiling faces. After mass we enjoyed the fellowship we had been missing for over a year. It has finally felt as if things are…

A week of rain May 2021

Monday was rainy and not very productive. We watched shows and tried to nap here and there. We did get a big surprise brought home that I will share more about at a later date. Tuesday the girls had their last day of gymnastics. Norah wanted to wear a leotard too. We do not have…

Three weeks with Baby Brother

Yesterday we celebrated Mother’s Day with early Mass. I had to eat my cereal while nursing Nicholas in bed. I would normally get pancakes or avocado toast in bed but since we had lunch plans and Ryan signed us up to bring flowers to Mary before the start of church we needed to get out…

Welcoming Nicholas Fulton

I have always loved the name Ethan for a boy, it was our choice when we had our three girls. It is so funny to me that this time around the only name we agreed upon was Fulton. The Venerable Fulton Sheen is a Catholic Bishop who wrote over seventy books on the Catholic faith…

The week before we welcomed baby

I was preparing to write this on the Sunday I went into labor but here I am as a mom of four just wanting to remember the week leading up to meeting our handsome new family member. The entire week prior we had visitors showering us with love and gifts in anticipation for the new…

First Beach Day of 2021

4.10.2021 I remember the first beach day of 2020, the coast had been closed and it was the first weekend that people were allowed to visit. It was very busy but it was so needed at that time. We absolutely love coming here and try to come as much as we can. We weren’t sure…

Preparing for baby four and home birth

I have the minivan, planned car seat and sleeping arrangements in my mind and washed all the things for a brand new baby. Now we patiently wait as I grow more sleep deprived with frequent trips to the bathroom preparing me for newborn feedings. I am almost 36 weeks pregnant and nearly full-term, which means…

Gardening with my Girls

Mia has been asking just about everyday for the past month to grow vegetables. She has been saving seeds from her fruits and vegetables. We told her she should use what we have if she is adamant on growing. She has currently covered my back porch in pots of dirt with her little plant babies….

Norah turns TWO

We celebrated this cutie by bringing her to the zoo on the Sunday before her birthday. We visited the zoo in January and her reaction to all the animals was just the best so we knew we had to bring her back so daddy could experience the zoo with her. Norah enjoyed every moment, she…
