Introducing: Leo & Asa

By |July 26th, 2016|Categories: Life|

Leo and Asa's birth story. (annotated by Kai) I had an uneventful weekly appointment Wednesday and felt pretty good Thursday and Friday but hadn't slept well either night. My mom had been here for a little over a week helping us get everything ready and making it easier for us to go to the many

I finished the Thankful All Year project! It was an amazing year with so much to be thankful for. It has also been a very difficult year filled with heartache and stress. I hope you'll understand why SoSaysKit will need to be on indefinite hiatus while I focus on other areas of my life. I do hope

Day 177: Adventure Party!

By |April 26th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Here are some highlights from Dex's 5th birthday party. He has been a fan of adventure for a long time and recently we introduced him to Indiana Jones. Holy cow! His little mind was blown. I got pretty much all of these ideas from various sources on Pinterest with most of them coming from this

Day 176: Let’s Paint.

By |April 25th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I feel like Kai's first semester of grad school (which began the same time we moved here and Dex started preschool and we started cloth diapering) we all just fell into an amazing routine and everything went smoothly and everyone was happy. Then we started getting sick and had holiday breaks and the snowpocalypse that

Day 155-175: Things Got A Little Away From Me.

By |April 24th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

My Grandpa passed away about 3 weeks ago and we've traveled the 4 hours back home a few times since then. I've been keeping up with my Thankful All Year post its and a few sentences in my journal most of those days but taking photos and posting wasn't possible most days due to sheer

Day 154: Protection.

By |April 3rd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

  I ran to Target today to grab a few things and my card was declined. First came a moment of embarrassment and then immediately there was quite a bit of concern. Why would my card be declined? Oh my gosh, what happened to all of our money? I calmed myself down and remembered an

Day 153: Have I Mentioned?

By |April 2nd, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

Ok, I'm pretty sure I've mentioned I have awesome friends. I also mentioned the off feeling I've been having lately. I can't really explain it. I think it's my anxiety coming back or maybe a little depression. It's so hard to say with my history and my family history really. I just feel like things

Day 152: No Judging.

By |April 1st, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

I love having a friend that I know I could call up anytime for help or to talk or to watch the kids, whatever. My friend had an appointment so her youngest son, who is Dex and Veda's age, came over to play for a couple of hours. Their family had come over on Saturday

Day 151: Zombie Apocalypse.

By |March 31st, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

You know how much I love zombie movies and apocalypse, dystopian, etc. storylines. It's a lot. Instead of 'emergency preparedness kits' we have zombie apocalypse kits. Not because we really believe it would happen but why not have a little fun with being prepared for an emergency situation, right? I've been wanting to get back

Day 150: It’s a brand new day.

By |March 30th, 2014|Categories: Thankful All Year|

When we got out of church we all just wanted to get out of the house and be outside. We stopped at home quickly to change our clothes and make some sandwiches and then we booked it to the park to have a picnic and play. We stayed a couple of hours I think and
