Hoke’s 2nd birthday! Elmo party

3 Sep

Hoke turned 2 on Aug. 19th,  and we partied Elmo style! We did a small family party with 3 little friends (Henley was one of them) and Hoke had a blast!

I made this Elmo wreath with lots of love.

Now it’s just in my way. If anyone wants it, I’ll sell it to you for a good price! 🙂

When Hoke first saw this, she let out this adorable,

 high pitched, excited, sqeal.

This was an afterthought, but the kids seemed to enjoy it!

I didn’t  actually make these (Whole Foods did)

BUT I did add the Elmo rings:)

The Birthday Girl!

My fun in-laws gave Hoke this pre-school sized trampoline!

Hoke loves it!


Opening presents.

She now sleeps hugging this backpack…

Pin the nose on Elmo

She loves the Sugar water table that Sugar gave her!

Now she feels that she’s allow to dump water on her sister.

Even sweet Auntie Babs got to come!

I originally planned on buying 4 boxes, using 2 of the $1/1 coupons and 1 of the $1.50/2 coupons. HOWEVER, when I got to the store there were coupons located right under the display of K-CUPS for $3 off 2 boxes. I grabbed 2 of those coupons.

dicount of $3.48 per box for being a VIC member.

Sometimes God says, “take a step back, evaluate, make a choice.” This is what I was confronted with this summer…

I was studying through the book of James with my Bible study (and Beth Moore) when I was slapped in the face with her lesson on “being too connected.” She talks about a digital world where we are always so connected with others and a real world where we just aren’t.

I originally started my blog to help other people learn how to save money. This summer, while studying James, it occurred to me… Am I still really doing this to help people, or am I doing this to prove to people I’m  relevant ?


The truth is, I don’t have to prove it to you.

That’s what freedom in Jesus Christ is all about.

He loves me. He saved me. He is enough.


I decided to take a break from my blog and get real.

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.’ James 1:22

I made playdates with friends. I called people on the phone. I spent time with my husband. And instead of complaining about being with my children 24/7, I invested in them.

I tried to be a doer and not a hearer only.

I feel refocused and rejuvenated, and I’m back.


this summer:

In the midst of my break, (brace yourselves)… On July 4th, I found out….

BABY BOYD #3 will be here in MARCH!!

(I’ll have a c-section the 1st week of March)

 Hokie baby turned 2!!

at her party

on her actual bday at Chuck E Cheese

Jarrod and I have zero pics with our children…this is the best we have…



it may look like she’s strangling her, but she’s really try to “pose” her.

I didn’t even tell them to hold hands!

Remember me?!

I’ve had several people ask why has Mama Goose been M.I.A. for 2 months?!?

Don’t you worry! There are a few reasons that may surprise you.

I’ve still been just as committed to couponing, testing new recipes, and DIYing. I just haven’t been posting…
