After Party

April 29, 2011 in Easter, Nash Family - 2 Comments

My favorite part of Easter weekend was our after party. My parents were in town to join us for our celebrations and things got pretty exciting after we put the boys to bed. It began when we were sitting around the dining room table emptying out plastic eggs full of…

Easter

April 27, 2011 in Easter, Traditions - 3 Comments

I made some efforts this year to start some spiritual traditions revolving around Easter. Our most recent Christmas was such an over-scheduled, rushed blur that I resolved to do better to incorporate the true meaning of Easter into our celebrations. We had a great Family Home Evening lesson where we picked out…

Airborne

A co-worker of Troy’s recently opened one of those trampoline arenas. He invited us to check it out. It’s safe to say that the boys thought they had died and gone to bouncy heaven. The warehouse had over 75 interconnected trampolines, including a specific arena for dodgeball. It’s a good…

New Name

April 21, 2011 in Blog Design - 7 Comments

Ever since I started this blog, I’ve debated about what to call it. I’ve never been able to settle on something that I could stick with. We started out as “The Tanner Trio.” That worked until we became a family of four. Then we were “It’s Tanner Time”  for a…

Taste of Summer

April 19, 2011 in Summer Activities - 5 Comments

I’ve been counting down the days ’til summer for a long time. I can taste it now even though it hasn’t technically arrived yet. I’m proclaiming this summer to be the summer of enjoyment. It will be the first summer in five years where I won’t be sick and pregnant…

Lopsided

April 13, 2011 in Nash - 7 Comments

In general, I think babies are cuter when they only have those two little bottom teeth. But I have to admit, I am loving that Nash’s top teeth have only grown in on half of his mouth. His lopsided grin makes me smile. This boy won’t wear socks and shoes…

I Accidentally Canned

April 13, 2011 in Cooking - 5 Comments

Canning is towards the top of my list of things I never thought I’d do in my life. I didn’t mean to can, but I accidentally did. I had this great idea to make apple butter for the preschool group I was hosting. We were going to spread it on…

Legoland

I had so much fun building an animal village with my buddy Blake last night. I forgot that I was his mom for a while. I was genuinely enjoying our play time. Blake kept repeating, “This is really really really fun.” How could it not be fun with the awesome…

Book Love

April 8, 2011 in Blake, Books - 3 Comments

We love books. Blake has taken a special interest in reading books over the last few months. He will sit on my lap for up to an hour with his attention completely focused on story after story. I look forward to our special daily reading time while Nash is napping. It…

Reunited

April 5, 2011 in College, Friends - 4 Comments

We couldn’t avoid our friends that we’ve been waiting to see for so long all weekend. So, we took our chances with the boys being sick and came home to spend time with them on their last night in town. Jimmy was one of our best friends in college. He…
