Tonight we took the kiddos to Baskin-Robbins to redeem gift cards that came in the mail for them. They were so excited! Anna’s… Continue reading More Catch-Up
The Greatest Week of the Year is the eleven days beginning with Mike’s birthday on November 24th, including our anniversary on Nov. 30th, my birthday on December 3rd, and ending with Mini’s Adoption Day on December 4th.
