...your almost didn't believe me did you. It has only taken me two months but I finally finished the pages I had almost done at a scrap day in April. I didn't notice until now that most of them are of Marla. I better get crackin on some layout for Leah's book.
Here they are.
WE ARE GOING ON A CRUISE!!!!! Mommy, Daddy and Marla are going on a Disney cruise next February and I AM SO EXCITED!!!! Can't wait. Tightening the money belt for the next 7 months but will be so worth it.
Little Miss Leah is 9 months old already. I can hardly believe how fast time is flying.
She is the best baby, so happy and a complete joy. Well unless she is hunger then look out world. Oh, just like her mama.
She is so smart but content not moving to much. I think one day she may just decided to stand up and walk and to be honest it wouldn't suprise me.
Summer is cold and that just is a bummer
Marla is heading off to her Adventure at Grandma Donna's next weekend and we are all very excited for that.
That is about it for now. Work work work. Wish I had something more fun to tell you.
Actually that is not true, I don't feel like I will ever catch up. Hubby has been working nights and it is exhausting and hard. I honesty don't know how single moms do it. Amazing.
Let's see here....we went bowling a couple weeks ago with the nieces.
We made cupcakes and realized that we had no frosting nor ingredients to make frosting. So I melted choco chips and marshmallows in the oven and stuck Graham crackers in them. Smore cupcakes.
This little one has decided she was going to learn all kinds of new things in one week:
-says mama and refers to me
-rolls and rolls and rolls all over
-blows air through her teeth
-eats real food, anything she can get her hands on (even cupcakes)
-head dives of any elevated surface
You know those scrapbook pages I was going to share when they are finished....still not finished. Neither are the chairs for the deck....or the curtains. I will check back soon if nothing else then to share pics of the kiddos.
Remember my killer find last summer? I still love this furniture. Look how little my girl was just a year ago. Wow, how time flies.
Well, the cushions were worn last year and they only got worse over the winter even though they were in storage. I tried to find cushions in similar sizes but to no avail. So I decided to tackle the re-upholstery job myself.
I very well might have bitten off more then I can chew but hopefully by the end of summer I will have the couch and other chair done.
I painted our front and back doors blue. It is better then the red door but blueier then I intended. It is fresh and clean and I like it for now.
Little Miss Leah had her first experience with the "ding ding man" aka the ice cream man. Marla got a Sonic the Hedgehog ice cream cone and shared with her baby sister. It turned both thier faces blue for 2 days by the way.
It was in the 70's this weekend and EVERYONE was outside. It was so great. The frogs were croaking, the pressure washers humming and kids everywhere. We so needed that.
So.....are you curious about this Wildree thing? You know the food blog I have over there on the right?
Well, I am taking the plunge. I have been so impressed with the Wildtree products that I have decided to become a consultant and share the goodness! This year we as a family decided that we needed to become healthier in mind, body and spirit. Quite a task right! Well, we are making baby steps in some areas and leaps in others. Wildtree has been key to our leaps in the healthy eating and reduced stress levels in our family.
Wildtree offers natural products that are simple and healthy. The products have no preservatives, additives, MSG or dyes and the products are certified USDA Organic. Here is the kicker though…..they taste GREAT!
Now let me tell you about the convenience and stress reduction side of Wildtree. I don’t know about you but I dreaded making dinner. Our lives are rushed and hectic and thinking about making dinner was often rushed and hectic. I felt guilty when I feed my family less then healthy meals because it was convenient and quick. Why can’t food that is good for you be convenient and quick AND taste good? It can be with Wildtree, we offer monthly meal planning and freezer meal options. I now have at least 10 meals on hand and anytime that are healthy, quick and so very yummy.
