About Moi!

Hello world! Coming to you live from my dining room/play room is me, Cassie! I'm a mom, a wife, a christian, a homemaker, a wannabe seamstress, a crafter, and probably a million more things. And this blog is about me growing in all of those areas. Lucky lucky blog world! No, really,I don't expect to have many viewers to this site, but for those few that are interested, I will be here, sharing along the way.


One of the things I want to do first is introduce my sweet boys that you will, no doubt, be hearing all about. First up is O. He is 4 and currently gearing up to enter pre-k this fall and pretty much lives in superhero costumes. He is the sweetest boy you could meet. Really. Of course I am his mother, and might be prejudiced, but! he really is a sweet, cuddling, inquisitive little man.

Number two is C. C is by far a different boy. He is almost 2 and he has the energy of no other! If O wants to cuddle, turkey is probably throwing something at us! God gave me this sweet little boy to stretch me out of my comfort level and I have loved every minute of it!


The third boy in my life is the love of my life. Alex and I have been happily married for almost 7 years. There are days that I wake up and still can't believe that he chose me, waited for me, and married me. We have a very special relationship and it is beyond important to me to continue to nurture that. Especially being a mom, sometimes our marriages can take a back seat and in the process lose their importance. I never want that to happen. I don't think I could survive without my best friend.


So! There it is. A very basic introduction to the basis of this blog. I hope you stick around to see what it unfolds in to!

Encouraging chidren to read

Reading is something Ihave always hoped to be part of our family culture.  There is something magical that happens when children get lost in the world of books. They not only expand their minds but their hearts as well. This phenomenon doesn't simply disappear when you become an adult, we just have to be more intentional as the pace of a busy life can render reading nearly obsolete. My mama set a great example by always reading when I was growing up and I followed in her footsteps. I read, my husband reads (currently audiobooks), we read out loud to our children and now our oldest, O, reads.

My hope is that this family culturewill encourage my children to explore the new worlds waitingbetween the pages. So, I've been thinking about what things we have done or could do to help foster that in our home.

Poetry tea time with boys

In our home we can easily fill our days with busyness. With two little boys, life IS busyness. But the chaos that is the modern life can easily push that busyness into chaos. We have sports and activities on top of a educational plan that challenges each of the boys. It's easy to get lost in the challenge and tally up your successes. It's harder to slow down and find beauty and just savor a moment. In my heart I desperately want the boys to remember more than just their multiplication tables from our journey together. I want them to have wonderful memories of our time. So, I'm very diligent about making sure we have those opportunities. We take hikes, we ride bikes, we do science experiments, we build legos. Have you notieced a theme? We DO. In case you missed it earlier, boys are BUSY! (Disclaimer: I'm sure girls are too. I just have no frame of reference. Sorry)

So, I have my hands full with these two little boys and then I read these lovely, I mean, Lovely, did you …

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe Book Celebration!

Last week I shared about our September book club party for Alice in Wonderland. This week I'm going to show you our November book party for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe! I think this one was even more fun than the last!

Since it was a wee bit colder around here in November, we opted to have this book club at our local library. They have a great story hour room that you can reserve for community events, and it works perfectly for our group. The younger siblings can wander back and forth between our event and the children's area of the library! Brilliant!

As the children arrived, they got to go through a wardrobe! Ok...so maybe it wasn't a wardrobe so much as a clothes rack with long coats hanging on it, but that didn't stop the kids from going through it over and over and over!


When they stepped through they were greeted by this loveliness! I had several trees situated throughout the room to create the feeling of Narnia! The white fabric at the base was supposed…
