hip hop – easter 2019

Easter is always amazing. Focusing on Christ, family, & fun times is my jam!! This year, we were lucky to have separate days for each side of the family (PRAISES!!). So, Saturday we had the Ruettinger side. We ended up egg hunting & eating Brazillian chocolates while chit chatting. Watson refers to anything sweet as…

the fourth

on this date, 242 years ago… AMERICA DECLARED INDEPENDENCE FROM BRITAIN. I am so grateful for the freedoms we have here in the USA. There are so many basic ones we take for granted daily; freedom of speech, freedom to vote however we choose, freedom of religion. Back when I was reading the Washington Hypothesis,…

Pastels ’cause Easter!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!   I can’t believe that it is already Halloween. This is W’s FIRST halloween! He was Captain Hook (& I fully vote that he should wear that costume everyday until he grows out of it). He loved strolling along following behind cousins as they trick or treated. He fell asleep once we got…

Mama Mouse & Mini Mouse

Watsy and I had our first Halloween get together over the weekend (In-law’s trunk or treat) and we had to figure out a last minute costume that wasn’t our actually Halloween costume (cause we would be missing the main part, Chad). So we went as mama mouse & mini mouse ­čÖé Disney is mandatory in…
