Yes, I am still here. This poor blog has been so neglected this year, but I do have a good reason.
Yes, I have been growing a baby! Reese is so excited to get a new sister any day now. My due date was yesterday, so we are so ready for this little one to join our family. Hopefully I will be able to get a post up of the nursery soon.
I feel like I have been up to my eyeballs in my to-do list the past couple of months. I am finally got around to the quilt that has been on my bedroom make-over to-do list (thanks to a late night girl's sewing time). Here is a sneak peek at it. Right now it is at my friend's getting quilted...yippee!!! (I promised myself that I would practice and master FMQ in 2012!) I can't wait to see what it looks like on the end of my bed. Now to get busy on the pillows!!!!
Oh and did I forget to mention that I have manged to paint 3/4 of my house. It feels so good to have it finished, but everything it a blank canvas. I can't wait to start creating and adding new and upcycled decor after I get all my Christmas sewing finish!!!
I am a mother of of Pre-schooler. How is that possible!?!?! Reese started 3 year old Pre-school a couple of weeks ago, and she LOVES it. It helps that she goes to school at the same place that I work, and she goes to school the two days I work. Mama is always close by. She has made a few new friends and is settling in just fine. Here are a few pictures of my big pre-school girl.
We hope you have a year full of learning, fun and new experiences. BUT please stop growing up so fast, Peanut!!!
Summer came and went much too fast. It was a busy, busy summer. I kept waiting for things to slow down....and it never happened. It seemed like my blog was one of the few things that has been neglected. Fall is going to be just as busy, but I am determined to not let things get so neglected!!
Here is a glimpse into some of our summer fun:
Reese was able to experience sparklers for the first time this summer....They were a big hit!
Everyone eats marshmallows on the end of a plastic spoon....right?!?!
Lot's of fun times spent with Papa.....
Reese's 1st trip to the beach. I am pretty sure we will be making more trips back in the future.
Playing in the sand....
We spent a lot of time at the pool....including swim lessons in July.
So much FUN!!!
Reese was finally old enough to attend VBS. It was a Gold Rush theme, and the kids were asked to wear western themed clothes. Is it a bad thing that Reese had a different western outfit for all 5 days.....wink. She was chosen as the best outfit in her class on of the days. She was able to go up on stage and pick a candy bar of her choice....she chose a Milky Way. She beamed with pride as she told us all about it.
and even more fun motions.....
And what would a summer be with out a little splashing in some water puddles!!!
We hope you had a great summer....we sure did!!!
Now to get busy on the never ending to-do list.....lots and lots of painting in my future!!!
