Hello my blogland friends! I hope your summer has been wonderful. Ours is coming to a close – school is starting shortly. We’ve had some fun adventures this summer. We spent last week on LBI (Long Beach Island, NJ), and I have some photos to share with you. But first, I wanted to share some cake photos! My parents and I all missed the girl’s 9th birthday, so a few weeks ago when we were all together we had another birthday for them. We did a few things to celebrate, including letting the girls make their own cakes!

After leaving the Yarn and Wine Tasting last week, we decided to take a little adventure. Doug had discovered that half way home we would be passing the Philly ComiCon, and the original Pink Ranger would be signing autographs! The girls LOVE the Power Rangers, and Kyla dressed as the Pink Ranger – her favorite – for Halloween this year. So you can imagine that it was pretty much decided immediately that we would stop at the ComiCon on the way home for an autograph and photo op!

Holiday Coupon 2015

Hello my friends! Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m going to be spending some time with my family. After all, Jessie At Home came about as a way to keep in touch with my extended family, and to keep a history of my immediate family.

So, this will be my last post until Tuesday. That means no round up, pattern, or link blast. Everything resumes as normal (wait, we have normal?) on Tuesday. I hope you all are able to take some time to be with your loved ones as well.

As a thank you to you, my loyal readers, I have set up a coupon code on both Ravelry and Etsy. Use the code (more…)

Today I am thankful for Doug’s Grandmother, Gertrude ~ Gertie to her friends.

The first time I met Doug’s family was for his Grandfather’s 89th birthday. Doug was very close to his grandfather, and he said he didn’t think his grandfather was going to be around for 90, so he wanted me to meet him. We had only been dating for about a month, and I met the whole family all at once. It was a little scary, but I had a nice time, and I really liked both his grandparents.

Doug was right, his grandfather didn’t see 90. Gertie came to most of the family functions with her son, Tom. I remember the first Easter I spent with them. Doug and I had been dating for almost a year at that point. Someone mentioned peeps, and I said the only thing they were good for was blowing up in the microwave. This intrigued Gertie. I told her that they expand in the microwave, and if you are careful you can stop the microwave before they explode and make a giant peep. This REALLY intrigued her. Alyson (Doug’s sister) and I went to the Wawa (like 7-11) and bought some peeps.  (more…)

Hello my blogland friends! How was your weekend? We had a lot of fun over here. I’ve been working a lot, but this weekend I did find some time to play with the kiddos. Here is a little about what we did and some photos of the fun!
