Chicken Update

We now have four chickens. Meet them. Alexandra and Eleanor are the older chickens (that we got first, read here) and they are best friends.  Alexandra is the most dominant one and Eleanor does not ever want to be away from Alexandra. We got Penelope and then Rosie last.  They are at least a month … Continue reading

Memorial Day at the Gentry Safari

This afternoon Nathan, the kids and I headed to the Gentry Drive Thru Safari.  It was a blast!  It was fun just hanging out with the four of us, doing something fun but we also got to see a ton of animals! I love my family and getting to do fun things together so this … Continue reading

Strawberry Cake

It is STRAWBERRY SEASON!!! At least here in Fayetteville strawberries are in full force!  While my mom was here last week we went strawberry picking which was so fun.  We went out to McGarrah farms in Lowell.  At the end of June they should have blackberries and raspberries.  We may just have to make another … Continue reading

Amazing Grace

Every night before Hadley goes to bed Nathan sings with her.  Here is one song they have been singing together.  Don’t pay any attention to my singing just the sweet voices. Beautiful right? Here is Noah attempting too.  Sorry he doesn’t have a shirt on, this was after strawberry picking and he wanted to eat … Continue reading

Hadley’s First Dance Recital

This is my 100th post!  I think Hadley’s first dance recital is totally worthy of my 100th post.  Today was her first dance recital.  She did AMAZING.  I may be bias but it is also the truth.  Other people (not related to me) told me.  🙂  She was so excited about her recital.  I knew … Continue reading

Teacher Appreciation Cupcakes

Last year I made cupcakes (that cake in cupcake form…delicious) for teacher appreciation week at Hadley’s preschool.  It was a huge success!  This year I got a call from another parent saying that some teachers requested I make cupcakes again for teacher appreciation week.  Wow!  I am honored and excited.  I had no idea what cupcakes … Continue reading


I don’t give my kids Jell-O.  I mean what IS Jell-O anyways?  Well, on Thursday Noah was sick and the doctor said his throat hurt really bad so give him soft, smooth things like Jell-O.  So off to the store I went to buy Jell-O.  On Thursday Noah did not like the Jell-O.  He didn’t … Continue reading

Nana’s Pound Cake

When I married into the Bowers family I married into a family with a lot of great cooks.  When Nathan and I were dating his mom would cook for us probably four times (at least) a week.  For my first Christmas I got a cookbook that MaryJane (my fabulous mother-in-law) made of family recipes.  Both … Continue reading
