The Hogan girls

I don’t get to spend nearly enough quality time with this part of my family, but when I do I’m reminded of the standard that has been set.

House of Hamilton

Would you look at these guys. You can practically hear the banjos dueling in the background.

Big ole happy Mormon family

Luckily no one brought up race at the dinner table, otherwise there would have been a somewhat delicious food fight.

My village

My team of “sister wives” is wide and deep and doesn’t get enough public praise for their contribution.

Knowing Your Michelles

“I guarantee you she has been playing this role since Amy T. locked herself in the bathroom at Amy J.’s slumber party in fourth grade. That’s when she learned what got her off, and she has been seeking it out like a junkie every since.”

With my little girls

“I just want four walls and adobe slabs for my girls.”

You get what you get and you don’t get upset

Here I am talking about farts and I am not happy about it. Not one bit.

My first experience with monsters, otherwise known as “babies”

What complicated situation in my life has the Avon World Sales Leader NOT solved?

Finally some downtime

When they weren’t playing hide and seek, throwing frisbees, or constructing elaborate forts out of quilts.

The past that is our ongoing present

The only thing that is going to top this for her upcoming birthday is a real live puppy, and wow is she going to be devastated with a gift card to a hardware store.
