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.

Colin’s First Pinewood Derby

Colin participated in his very first Pinewood Derby!  In terms of construction, we had a leg up on the competition.  Mimi and Papa’s neighbor (Chris Comardo, I think) has his very own wood shop and was more than happy to help!  We snuck over their during the week, and he helped both kids turn their cars into candy bars (Hayley also had a Powder Puff Derby coming up)!!  You’ll see Hayley’s Reeces car in a few blog posts, but check out Colin’s Hershey car!  Doesn’t it look awesome?!  So many people asked Colin if it was a real Hershey bar.  That would be too easy!  Colin didn’t win the Derby, but he definitely had one of the best looking cars!

Easter Sunday

We had such a fun Easter this year with the Easter bunny coming in the morning, coloring Easter eggs, and then an Easter dinner at our house Sunday night with cousins and grandparents.  Sydney is starting her I-don’t-want-to-wear-dresses phase and Hayley is starting her I-don’t-want-to-do-my-hair phase, which is making me really sad. *Sigh* Hopefully, they are just phases . . .

Happy Valentine’s Day . . . a wee bit late!

Happy Valentine’s Day to us . . . just a wee bit late!!  Believe it or not, we had something every Saturday night between middle of February though the middle of April.  With four kids, things just get busy.  But, the Saturday night before Easter we made it happen and went to dinner at Del Friscos Grille.  And to be honest, I loved the Grille even more than the uber high end Del Friscos Steak House.  Well, it’s been fourteen years and Clint is still my Valentine!  How did that happen?  I honestly wouldn’t want to imagine my life any other way! XOXO

Mommy Daughter Day (aka Girls Day)

Hayley and Sydney’s favorite thing to do in the world is to have a Girl’s Day!  Lucky for them, that’s also one of my favorite things to do!  This time we were celebrating Hayley’s birthday and decided to do it French style!  We first got pedicures at Le Salon (okay, maybe the salon wasn’t French), then we went to see the movie Beauty and the Beast and loved it!  Finally, we went out to dinner at Le Madeleine to tie in with our French theme.  I think these girls are ready for France!

Preschool Easter Egg Hunt

It’s hard to believe that this is Sydney’s last year of preschool.  She has had SO much fun and talks non-stop about all of her friends. The only sad little thing for her this year was that Hanna, her best friend since she was born, is now best friends with Maddie and would rather play with Maddie over Sydney.  Sydney would tell me and kind of brush it off, but I know deep down their friendship, especially when they unknowingly excluded Sydney, hurt her feelings deep.  I can’t blame Hanna or Maddie.  When Sydney and Hanna lived next door, they were best friends.  Now that Hanna and Maddie practically live next door to each other, they are best friends.  Sometimes I wish we could live in a world without change, especially when things seem so perfect at the time.
