Finishing up the last few details for the railroad crossing signs for my son’s bday. I made them both for under $10 and in under an hour. The Dollar Tree is amazing. I used red and black plates for the lights, thick cardboard for the signs, printed out the words on my computer and tall garden stakes from Lowes to hold it all together. Are they perfect? No, but my son is so excited! And they will be fun for the party 😊#momlife#momofboys#trainbirthday#train#crafty#dallasblogger#polarexpress#dollartreefinds#dollartree#lowes
File this under food pics. There was a time I was a recreational stone crabber in the Keys, and got popped by the FWC for improperly marked crab pots. In my defense, the markings required had worn off towards the end of the season and I didn’t freshen them up. But they weren’t playing around! Enjoyed a nice bounty of these guys all season long! Either way, Catching your own stone crabs is a ton of fun, and also dangerous, watch your fingers and toes! #floridakeys#floridakeysfoodtours#stonecrab#islamorada#sweetmeat#polarexpress#throwback
A little more than a year ago I left for the most amazing adventure of my life in the Galápagos. I never would have dreamed I would have had the chance to see such a special place and after returning never imagined I'd get another adventure like it. Until now!! Packing up my parka and heading north to the Arctic to search for polar bears! Can't wait to see what special kind of memories this new journey brings. And so grateful I get to explore this amazing part of the planet before it's too late. #travelgram#instatravel#arctic#polarexpress#lindbladexpeditions#adventureawaits#ecotravel
#Christmas all year! Who do *you* #believe in? My mother bought this #polarexpress cup today, and I ❤ it! Polar Express is a charming story--well, ok, what I know of it; I admit I've never seen much of the movie--but #Jesus is the reason for every season! If we know He wasn't really born on Christmas, why not celebrate His Birth (and everything else about Him) all year 'round?
(P.S. A #vipkid student introduced me to the Polar Express song "When Christmas Comes to Town" this past Christmas season, and just the other day, some Christian lyrics started coming to me. Should I hold it all in till Christmas, or give a preview now?)

📷 Photographer @honoryourrhythm - Decided to take a detour on the way home from UNH yesterday to miss Boston traffic and stop at one of my favorite spots in New England. It was cold and rainy but anything seemed better than sitting in traffic. Got my camera out and decided to snap a few pics when the suddenly the mind flayer appeared in the sky and tried to get me! •
These moments come less and less often for us as he is growing so fast!
I really hate letting him watch tv. Kids should be playing and learning from the activities and surroundings.
Who is raising their kids like that?
But.... If I can get him to snuggle for just a bit with me by letting him watch a little Polar Express I guess I can alter my old school mind for that! ❤️ #boymomlife#oldschoolmomma#snuggles#raisingaman#polarexpress
