The Days are Long, but the Years are Short

Life at The Castle



A quote I love

Brian recently decided to Google quotes from authors that he loves and he found this great one that he saved for me.

“…it (feminism) is mixed up with a muddled idea that women are free when they serve their employers but slaves when they help their husbands.”                                                                    G.K. Chesterton

I really thought that this was hilarious and spot-on.


Like Lightning

That’s how these past weeks have gone by.

I know that the title of our blog says “years” but wow, the weeks are short too!  I couldn’t believe how much Jack has grown when I compared these two pictures.

Free Nursing Cover

Hi friends!  Sarah Robbins posted about a great deal on a nursing cover–FREE except  for S&H!!  I just ordered mine; I’d been wanting one but wasn’t willing to dish out the $40!

Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3

This is my first poll and I’m not sure that I’m doing it correctly so…we’ll see!  Bear with me!

Coupons for Pediasure and Carnation Instant Breakfast

Very few of my typical readers will care about this but I’m posting in hopes that some other mom or dad will find it in a Google search!  Daniel has to have Pediasure and Carnation Instant Breakfast daily and they are both pretty expensive.  To make it worse, it’s really hard to find coupons for them (ya’ll know that I’ve tried!) but Target has some coupons for both of them right now!  Here’s the link!  Pediasure is on pg 2 and CIB is on pg 10.

Sorry I’m a slacker

My only excuse is that I am exhausted.  Daniel nap times have become Daniel and Mommy nap times and so a variety of things have been left undone.  Thankfully, my husband’s list of things that must happen is pretty much limited to having dinner cooked at a reasonable hour.  Nonetheless, here are some pictures from the last few weeks including a few “sick” pictures because my little guy is not currently at the top of his game.

At last…October (and caught up!)

Moving, along with a spurt of new skills and a trip to Asheville, means that there are a lot of October pictures so hold on to your seat or come back later if you don’t have time to watch them all now!
