Hi friends. Hanging in there? What a beautiful month we’ve had here in the Wenatchee Valley. Can’t believe all this snow! Refreshing and fun after some very dry winters. We hit the hills at Squilchuck for some sledding and drank gallons of hot chocolate, watched the snowflakes fall and frosted cookies. What about you all? Having a cozy winter so far?
Sometimes you have to step outside yourself to find humor in a frustrating situation. A lot of frustrating situations arise while raising children, and with that comes our response as parents. It’s funny to me to mentally rewind and assess what I’ve just said out loud and bask in the ridiculousness of it. I find that my best quotes are responses to questions or actions executed by my kids.

Ian Fraser Kilmister, aka “Lemmy” – legendary frontman, bassist and songwriter for the English Metal Band Motörhead. You have to admire a man who puts his money where his mouth is – Lemmy lived his life with no regrets, never looking back.
