Strawberry Picking

I LOVE Spring and summer.  I LOVE warm weather and I LOVE fresh fruit!  It has become an annual event for us to go strawberry picking with some friends in early May, and we went this week!  So fun!   It is pretty funny to see all of the moms wearing babies and snapping pictures…

More Easter

What its really all about: Making birds nests with eggs for our neighbors. Easter breakfast:  Blueberry French Toast Casserole.  YUM! Sweet girls “fishing” in the pond. We had Easter lunch with some friends.  After a yummy meal we enjoyed watching our sweet girls in pretty dresses frolicking around in the green grass.  It was so…

A post I never thought I’d write…

Everett is wearing cloth diapers! I never thought I wold use cloth diapers.  (Next thing you know I’m going to say I’m doing natural childbirth!  HA!)  Apparently some sort of disposable diapers are available in PNG, but it seems like using cloth diapers there might be a good idea.  So I’m giving them a try…

St. Patrick’s Day

Bib

Now that Everett is a champion drooler I thought it was time for him to start wearing bibs! A friend of mine gave me some super cute ones that looked easy to make, so I tried to copy them and was pleased with how my first attempt came out:maybe I should have taken a pic…
