2014’s Resolutions, How Did I Do?

    Hello! Are you so excited about it being 2015? I am looking forward to so much of what’s ahead, but before I get too far ahead of myself, I thought I would look back at my resolutions from last year and give myself a grade for how well I did! Since there is…

A Landsknecht Father Christmas

Have I ever told you about my obsession with wanting a Father Christmas/Santa that is dressed like a 16th Century German Landsknect? No? Odd, it actually has come up repeatedly over the years in our house, so it has HARDLY been a secret! Don’t know what a Landsknect looks like? Here you go…… They are awesome…

Vampire Ball {Halloween 2014}

So our final costumes for Halloween were for the Vampire Ball, which was a party held on November first in the Officer’s club on Osan AB. My dress is made from a silk corset, that I trimmed in lace and boned with basket reeds. The under skirt is black damask fabric, and the over dress…

I’m Assuaging My Guilt…

Emmie’s 11th Birthday {flashback post}

The other day I shared a post about Emmie’s small and understated 12th birthday party, and today I am back with her 11th birthday (I am so behind on posts….) Emmie decided that she wanted to have a circus theme for her party, and we tried really hard to thread the theme throughout within the…
