My Blog bio picture
  • Welcome to our blog!

    It seems crazy. Ten years ago Clint and I had just gotten married, and we were so young and carefree. It was just the two of us and life was pretty easy. The house stayed (reasonably) clean, we went out when we wanted, and traveled to some pretty incredible places. We didn't have a whole lot of responsibility, pretty much just to ourselves.

    Fast forward to 2014 and we now have three miniature versions of ourselves, two girls and a boy in the middle. Hayley is six and is as spunky and prissy as can be. Colin is almost five and is the nuttiest little thing imaginable, but oh so sweet. And Sydney, our littlest, thinks she's six and is already the comedian in the family. Despite our kiddos being so little, they not only now outnumber us, but they have managed to turn our world upside down. But we wouldn't have it any other way. We love 'em to pieces!

    The blog is filled with the weekly happenings within the Stuckey family, some funny, some touching, and some a little zany and crazy. Life is definitely better with kids in it! We love ours to pieces. Images + Words = Memories.


Eureka Science: Dissecting Owl Pellets

Oh man!!  I picked the wrong day to volunteer for Eureka Science.  The kids were dissecting owl pellets and I had to help them!!  Yuck!!  And to my mistake, an owl pellet is not the owl’s poop, but it is something equally as disgusting.  After the owl eats it’s prey, it will throw up, in a tight little ball, the non-digestible remains of the animal it ate.  So we had to help the kids dissect their owl pellet to determine what type of animal the owl ate.  Colin was fascinated!!  He thought it was the coolest thing ever!  By the end, we were pretty sure that the sneaky owl ate a small poor helpless little bird.:(

“Mom, Take a Picture!”

These two little boys love each other to the ends of the earth!  They have a special bond that I pray always remains strong. They love to play together, chase each other, jump on the trampoline together, and just cuddle up next to each other.  Keaton is such a cuddler. So is Colin.  If you lay down on the ground, Keaton will soon find you and cuddle up next to you (or right on top of you)!  Colin is always wanting pictures of him and his brother together. “Mom, take a picture!  Take a picture!”  Love these two!!

Ben Jackson: Magic, Music, and Mayhem

In one word: MINDBLOWING!!!  Clint and I went with Kathryn and Manly to see Ben Jackson perform last February and my mind is still blown!!  His show was unlike any I’ve ever seen before.  There was no saw a lady in half, no smoke, no mirrors.  Just pure, authentic up-close magic.  And the coolest part was that we were in the attic of a hotel that used to be the residence of the famed Fondren family. It was such a cool intimate setting and we had front row seats, which made every trick especially mind blowing because there was nothing to hide!  This was hands-down the most amazing magic show I’ve ever been to!

Stake Activity Days: Kindness is my Jam!

We seriously have the best ward and SUCH an amazing stake!  I love that Hayley gets to participate in Activity Days. She is surrounded by so many incredible girls and inspirational leaders!  This year’s theme was Kindness is my Jam!  They made homemade strawberry jam, learned about kindness, had a picnic hot dog lunch, and had a dance party at the end!  As an Activity Day leader myself, I got to go!  Score!!!
