Emma Turns 4!

We turned the house into Elsa's ice castle for Emma's 4th Birthday party. We did all of her favorite things: painted our nails blue, filled the house with balloons, had a dance party, made Olaf out of doughnuts, ate spaghetti and cupcakes and opened presents!

YWCA Leadership Awards

The mission of the YWCA is simple: The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

 I was honored to be amongst a wonderful group of women in support of the same mission here in St. Louis as I was honored at the YWCA Leader Lunch as a Monsanto leader. I appreciate all of the hard work and efforts by men and women before me and I look forward to continuing this mission to create a better world for Emma and her future family.

Thank you, Monsanto for continuing to be a community citizen and empowering women to be equal leaders within the company, within agriculture and within the communities in which we live and work.

Christmas 2014

I love Christmastime. It is absolutely my favorite holiday. I love spoiling the kids. I love the magical sense of the time of year. I love having the family together. This year, Dee Dee passed right before Christmas. It was bittersweet as it is a hard time of year to lose a loved one, especially someone as important to me as my Dee Dee. However, it allowed Papa to travel to Ohio and St. Louis for Christmas and participate in Emma's 4th birthday.
