The good ole days

Saturday, early morning as the sun was starting to wake up, I lay in my bed thinking of all the things I would do that day.  This would be the day that the garage (play area and craft room) would finally get done and reoganized with little areas for everything that we need to accomplish in our life.  I would can up the grape jam I made the night before and finish organizing that shelf in the laundry room.  Then while getting out of bed, I felt a hot ripping pain like a hot knife on the lower side of my belly and froze in pain.  It took Poppa to roll me over and get me up.

I pulled a stomach muscle.

Today is the first day that I have been able to leave my bed and can that jam that has been patiently waiting in a huge pot in the fridge.  I am not really good at doing nothing and being in bed for three days is alot of nothing.

I did get to finish the sleepy soaker sack and started making up a wrap style diaper cover but have not yet liked it enough to not rip everything off the needles and start over again.

There is a project that I have been putting off for a rainy day and lets face it, its rainin!  I finally took a pile of DVR disks and pulled out that old laptop that got fried (one of two) that is full of old pictures and started burning pictures onto a disk.  It was so much fun to remember the good ole days, though these aren’t that old, most are from 2006 to 2010.  It reminds me how grateful I am to have a space where I can document our days and years and even share them with others.

I’ll be back tomorrow to share the sleepy soaker for Yarn along day.  Until then, I leave you with some memories.

I can’t believe how big she has gotten.  *Side note*  This was one of the only times she ever got to wear that sweater, it was washed and dried and I cried…alot!
 This was taken at the annual Pioneers day which we love so much.  I think he is wearing size 2 or 3 in these pics.

 those eyes!  they still get me every morning
 I couldn’t resist sharing these next two pics.  Olivia was three months in this picture.  Can you say buttah?
 yes, pure cream and butter.  This is 100% momma’s milk too : )
Poppa and I, a lifetime ago
not a recent picture.  this one was taken while I was pregnant with Christopher and I can’t believe it has been almost 6 years though if I look in the mirror, I can believe it.  That is JP standing next to me
 I never got in the water that whole weekend, just layed around everywhere
 while Poppa swam with the kids
look at those thighs….so delicious
Have you looked at any old pictures lately?

Oh Baby! An announcement

There has been a little something I have wanted to tell you all about for a while…  something I have been so happy about.  We have been blessed with another little one.

It has been a very glorious and yet nervous past two months.  I did find out that I was expecting 8 weeks ago but since I have had miscarriages in the past I just could not bear to share my wonderful news and then have to share my sorrow too.

I am beyond happiness to share my news with all of you!

A long time ago I saw this Tiramisu blanket on Rav and I went out and bought the yarn, put it away in my yarn bin with the ribbon and all for someday.  A few days ago I started it for my very own little bundle.

I haven’t gotten very far because it is spring and the garden and farm are taking all of my time right now but I hope to have it done really soon.  I have so so many projects I have been dreaming of and that will have to keep me busy until I can meet my little one.

I am joining Ginny at her Yarn Along today after a long time of not yarning along.  I am also joining my beautiful friend who has kept my little secret in her prayers for a long time…go on over and Craft On with Nicole from Frontier Dreams.

Hope to see you all here for the Stash Bash tomorrow!  I will be working on…of course, more baby stuff.
