The Truth About Boys
As you may have noticed, I end all of my blogs with a tag line that proudly proclaims that I am the mother of four boys. I absolutely love being the mother of four boys. I wouldn’t trade them for the world.

I ran across this recipe on Pinterest and can’t wait to try it. The combinations for this summery crunchy cake recipe are endless. This recipe can easily be manipulated to fit pretty much any one’s taste.
Cream Cheese Rhubarb Cookie Recipe
My mom has never had a green thumb. However, the one thing she could always manage to grow is rhubarb. I grew up hating rhubarb. How could something that was supposed to be a fruit be so sour? And it has the texture of celery. It’s definitely not my dream fruit.
What Country Song Are You?
Here in Montana we’re all a little country whether we like to admit it or not. It seems like every other channel on the radio is blaring a country song. I think it’s in our blood.
