Home Sweet Home




OK ...so I've heard that in the blogging world there is only one thing more annoying than a blogger who doesn't blog and that is a blogger who apologizes for not blogging with every new post. So I will continue to post at will and not apologize for my lack.......

....OK OK I'm really sorry, but here's my excuses and I have really good ones. We have been home sporadically for only 14 days this month. Add in - 3 meals a day, dishes to accompany them, coffee press twice a day(pure joy), laundry for 4, packing, unpacking, laundry, re-packing, unpacking, laundry, 2weeks of home-made baby food, 15 hrs of work on a new tattoo(not mine), one accident on the carpet(again not mine),two sick babes, several sippies full of milk, 300 sit-ups a day(who am I kidding), a new love for veggie tales, multiple cheerios between the toes (which badly need to be painted), vigorous house hunting, an ever increasing list of blogs to check, which often inspire me to keep going, communicate with husband, throw in daily Bible reading, prayer in the shower, and the ever exciting trip to check the mail! Which consists of dodging brightly colored dragonflies, scaring timid turtles, watching baby duckies grow, counting fish, and picking flowers in our beautiful little oasis....(Oh why do they have to raise our rent!)



So we are home now...and it is ever so sweet!

Oh Nina!

I was highly encouraged by your little workshop. The praying in the shower jem, yeah, I'm going to start using it cause I usually belt out tunes and annoy my parents while I take one. :) But praying in the rain sounds a lot better than singing. :) Have fun with your darling family!

You make your own baby food? That is so cool, I did that with Hazel and want to for Jade!!! So are you guys buying a place? That's so awesome. As moms we are so busy it is not even funny. I am so blessed to be at home 100% now I envisioned crafts and what not...oh yeah I'm so exhausted even more so than when I was working pt.
