Do I Really Need a Title?



I really can't think of anything clever for a title. You know those days, when all of your creative energy has been spent somewhere else? That's me, today.

I have so much to tell you, so many fun things we've been doing, but I just don't have the time.

We went to the farm last Friday and had a fantastic time. I have pictures, I will share, I promise. The beauty of the farm, the baby animals and the wonder on my children's faces are just too much not to share.

We had a fabulous Easter, I hope you all did too. The children all got new duds, and looked stunning. Seth got his first little suit and the girls got new dresses.

Click to make the collage bigger, you'll be glad you did. My kids are not only cute, but funny as well. These were taken right after church, Amelia was exhausted, Libby was only interested in eating grass, and Seth was just being plain silly. It was great.

I started a skirt for myself on Saturday, but with Liberty not napping well (thanks teeth), I only got it cut out. So, I didn't get to wear it on Easter. I finished it this morning. A friend came over and helped me do my first ever zipper and I love it. I went to TJ Maxx and got a great shirt to wear with it and I am just happy as a clam. I still need to hem it, but that can't keep me from showing it to you!


So that's what has been going on in these parts. Sewing, girls with coughs, one getting her first teeth and learning how to crawl, lots of tantrums by a 4 and 2 year old and plenty of laughs, hugs and giggles to make up for anything not so fun.
