FishFam Gets Duded Up

  • [pinit]

Last weekend we went to a reception for my sister and her new husband. And for the occasion, we got duded up. Dressing eight people in special duds is no small feat, but I think we pulled it off. The FishBoys loved the three soda minimum that I set for the evening. It was clearly […]

A Very Dora Birthday Cake

  • [pinit]

FishBaby turned two last week. Can you believe it?! She was born just a few months after LifeasMOM: The Blog and so many of you have known her even before she was born. This little girl is a hoot, that is for sure. She looks a lot like her grandmother who passed away when she […]

Inspired by The Happy Housewife’s latest round-up of family photos, I thought I’d share with you a little of our history. It seems that over the years the FishParents have disappeared from […]

Legoland, Bob the Builder, Bionicles, and Tinkerbell: The FishKids’ Birthday Review

  • [pinit]

For better or worse, my kids’ birthdays come lumped together. Three in late May/early June and two in November. Yes, FishBaby is all by her lonesome in August, but that’s okay. These two “birthday seasons” are full enough. Last week FishBoy9 and FishChick3 celebrated their birthdays. Or should I say we celebrated FishBoy9 and FishChick3? […]
