A New "Doggy"

As you have seen in the past, Dax takes his "doggy" every where. We call it the lion named doggy so we don't feel so dumb in public or around others calling it doggy- when it is obviously a lion. Because dax eats, bathes, sleeps, and takes this little guy every where, we needed a new one. We were so worried it would get so worn out and if it got replaced, he would notice. We also worried we wouldn't be able to find anything that looks like this doggy. Cole actually gave it to me when we were first married at valentines. It used to have a stuffed heart attached. My mom told us that she found some stuffed animals that looked just like Dax's dog. She bought one. We bought 2. We are well prepared for probably the next 10 years. I will keep the original doggy forever! It's Dax's little trademark. He is known for it, and I love it.

A little late...

I know I am really late at posting these pictures- the lights have come, and gone- unlike the last couple of years..... Lights down by January!! Dax couldn't resist being daddy's little helper!

This is sad that Dax knows what to do with this stuff....

Families can be together forever

I am so thankful for my family and that they can be together forever. Knowing that they can be together forever puts my soul at ease. Around Christmas I put Dax's old bedding set on Craigslist. Since he was in the NICU, and then slept in a bassinet, he barely used the bedding. When we had Kai, it was a repeat of what happened with Dax. I figured I would rather have someone use the bedding then have it sit in storage. Someone asked about the bedding, and wanted it. I have been communicating with this sweet girl in a different state about getting the bedding. She shared her blog about her little boy with me. It was a tear jerker for both Cole and I. I hope she doesn't mind me sharing it with you. If she does, I will remove the address. I realized that I do not want to pass up any moment with my boys. I am so thankful for the church and the blessings we receive because of it. I wanted to share this with you because I do not want any parents to pass up all the precious moments they have or could have with their children.

Picture Overload

With the birth of Kai, and the wonderful no sleep newborn stage, and then RSV, I haven't posted too much. Kai is finally home from the hospital so I decided to upload a bunch of pictures.

more pix


I am known for starting projects and not finishing them. I usually have about 10 projects half painted, sanded, put together, out in the garage, or in my craft closet, along with bought items to make something... So I decided to finish all the ones that were out in the garage- and use them! I am pretty proud of myself. But now.... I have taken on sewing...my my my...I am crazy. I used to despise sewing. I still don't love it. But I can do simple things. With some of our tax return we decided to purchase a sewing machine. I read some reviews about one that no one had one bad thing to say about it. One of the reviews made my decision- "I bought this sewing machine for my 11 year old daughter. She loves it, and can use it all by herself." I was sold...
Here are some pictures of some projects I have made using the cricut. One picture is the first project I made with the sewing machine.
