Our Modern Family



It’s Midnight Somewhere…

To further perpetuate the fact that even with all good intentions, work and raising a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old make it a little more difficult to stay current with the blog…so now we are officially just over one month late (an no…that does not mean that Nolin & Grace may be getting a sibling in 9 months).

Again, this year we stayed in town for Christmas and it was nice to be able to relax a bit and spend some more family time. I took one day off from work in between Christmas and New Years which made an already short & quiet work week even better. We made sure we packed as much as we could into that time off.

Halloween 6

2015-10-29 08.11.01 1Halloween should be on a Saturday every year to make it easier for parents who work. Let’s be honest, there is a high degree of chaos that leads up to the actual event of trick-or-treating and the subsequent CIA style operation required to hide the candy after the kids fall asleep.  This is all a lot to handle when you are rushing home after a day of work.
