steps to getting a good enough family photo 🤓🤣

Set it up, practice with the timer, because you know once everyone gets there you’ll have about 1 minute of their attention! Gather as many of the family members as possible and put them in place… Do a head count…everyone is here, plus the dog. Wake up people, if necessary… Just dive in and take…

We went to see Wes at college! It was so fun…last year we only went to help him move in…then we thought we needed to let him get settled and make his way on his own. This year he wanted us to visit and meet his friends. So we went down on Friday night and…

✨ 19 on the 19th ✨

Wes was back at school on the 19th, so we had to celebrate before he left. We had taco pockets (his favorite), nachos, raw peppers (his favorite), and Oreo ice cream cake with Oreo truffles (his favorite) We all told him what we admire and love about him: Word gifts for Wes on his 19th…
