Love in a Clear Plastic Box

A simple plastic box is one of my most favorite things about Christmas. Through this clear plastic container, we are able to grant a Christmas wish for an underprivileged child somewhere in the world, and show them the love of Christ. My family has been participating in a program called …

My Family Kidnapped St. Patrick

True story. For reals. If you’ve been reading my blog for long, you know that I am oddly obsessed with St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish. Of all the different ancestries that make up my genetics, I’ve always just felt…Irish.  Now it all makes sense. Right before Christmas, I had …

St. Patrick’s Day is kinda a big deal in my house. Not because we are Catholic, but because we are Irish. A set of my 3rd great grandparents on my mom’s side both came to American from Ireland when they were children in the mid-1800’s. As adults, they met in …

Elf on the Shelf

This is William Alfred Edison Rollo Theodore von Bonaparte, the Conqueror…our elf. This is one crazy elf, people. (I know some of you are thinking I am the crazy one for starting the elf thing almost 2 months before Christmas.) I think the elf overheard my husband talking about how …
