100 Days

  Somehow in the mess of the world, I lost sight of the fact that IT’S OCTOBER. And you know what that means?????? 100 days of Holidays has officially begun! We have red trees and orange trees and yellow trees and yes, that is SUPER early for us, but everyone is saying the 30 days of Smoke (which is quickly becoming another part of … Read More 100 Days

Ghost Story

Dana and I are running in twelve different directions this week. So here’s a spooky post from two years ago…and last year…but who doesn’t love a ghost story? Happy Halloween! Growing up, we had a ghost in the house. I’ll put that on my mom. And if my mom was writing this, she’d tell you the same. We’d lived in the house probably ten … Read More Ghost Story

Boo Fail

I’ve written about Boo Baskets before. But I have an update. For the first time in 5 years, we got caught. Boo Baskets are not a thing in Southern Oregon. When I texted the moms of the four families we picked to tell them we would come a’booing, I found myself explaining the entire concept, four times. My friend Leah—and she’s six months pregnant … Read More Boo Fail

The Ghost in Our House~ Jen

She’s baaaaaack! Growing up, we had a ghost in the house. I’ll put that on my mom. And if my mom was writing this, she’d tell you the same.

We sat down as a family and told each other all the weird things that had happened that we thought were … Read More The Ghost in Our House~ Jen

BOO!

We like things that go bump in the night. We like mystery and intrigue and we like to surprise and be surprised. So the first time we got Boo’d, I knew this … Read More BOO!

Roasting

I hate the summers Inland California. Hate is a strong word, I know, but I mean it with every fiber of my being. Sometime in early June, the thermometer hits 97 and it doesn’t dip below that number for the next four months. In other places, summer lasts 75-90 days. Here: 120. Our summer is like winter in Wisconsin or Maine. The kids cannot … Read More Roasting

Halloween Time! ~ Dana

Spiders on windows and pumpkins on porches… Can’t you just imagine Julie Andrews singing a Halloween remix of this song?!  Ok, maybe it’s just me, lost in my Sound of Music world, but that’s ok. I think that one of the reasons that Jen and I are such good friends is that Halloween is one of our favorite things.  Like most Americans, my love … Read More Halloween Time! ~ Dana
