In its place was a ransom note with… Continue reading Case #9: The Case of the Purloined Birthday Present

Selah is 7! Let’s Paw-ty!!
Leading up to her 7th birthday, I cannot count how many nights before bed Selah would suddenly burst into uncontrollable tears while I was snuggling her.

Elliott’s 5th Lego Birthday!
Elliott turned 5 on March 20–a phrase he has been telling EVERYONE he has met for the last 8 months or so: “Hello, my name is Elliott and I’m turning 5 on March 20th!” To which the person would almost always respond, “You’re 25?” To which I would jump in and correct, “He’s TURNING 5…”… Continue reading Elliott’s 5th Lego Birthday!
