Hello! I can't believe May is almost over, it's been a weird month for us weather wise.We had a few days that dipped into the low 40s and really had us all a little bummed but this past week has been BEAUTIFUL! It's always nice when you can open all the windows, let the sunshine… Continue reading May Days
Rainy days are made for knitting especially with a cheerful yarn. This sweet buttercup Oden blanket fits the bill! Really enjoy the way this is blanket is knitting up, excited to be able to work in a few extra rows.
Windows open, cool breeze flowing through the house, green trees and flowers blooming all over the neighborhood, I love Spring! Its finally warming up and able to spend lots more time enjoying the backyard but most importantly our enclosed porch. Last summer, I took all my kids toys out to the porch and we spent… Continue reading Stitching in the Spring
March was sooo busy! I return from the trials of potty training, when does it get easier than diapers (kidding)? Turns out my kid is almost potty trained except he won't tell me when he needs to go, so we're still working on that. My husband's job has been having crazy amounts of overtime so… Continue reading April Update
We've had a very busy and productive February! Potty training...ugh. I feel like parents everywhere can sympathize. We're no longer running to the potty every 20 minutes around the clock. He's wearing undies, wakes up dry in the morning, can go out in town and manage to stay dry. He still won't tell us when… Continue reading Potty training, gardening and crafting, oh my!
Happy Monday! It's hard to believe we're already in the middle of February. We've been spending lots of time trying not to irritate each other. We're still a bit skittish about taking our kiddos out too much since the hospital stay, but we did get a few days of pretty weather to run off some… Continue reading Mid February update
We survived the chilling temps of the polar vortex. While it was ridiculously cold, I was thankful for the family time we got. We played with lots of playdoh, snuggled under blankets while reading stories and watching Halloween Curious George on repeat (apparently my son thinks it's the best🤷♀️). At the end of the night… Continue reading Garden fairy progress
My sweet little nephew has been wearing my momma's scarf for the past few days, so she asked if Aunt could make him one would he like that. He smiled and said yes in his sweet little voice so what's an Aunt to do. I started one that will match his sweet little hat I… Continue reading Dreaming of Spring
Oh goodness, January has been quite the month so far. Shortly after my little girl's first birthday, her older brother got sick, really sick. We went to the pediatrician's office 3 days in a row, got a chest xray and then to the ER where we were admitted. The past 2 weeks have been a… Continue reading Recouping and snowy days
Its a brand New Year which means a year full of possibilities. With kids, I always find myself looking inward and deciding what I can do better. So this year, I'm practicing more patience, slower to anger and trying to be more pleasant on the morning. Weve already started this year off with one dive… Continue reading New Year
