We got another sweet package in the mail last week from my sister and her family.
I just love how pretty things always look when I open up the boxes that I receive.
It was such a nice surprise.
My sweet niece bought Emma a special present. Emma is getting pretty good at opening!
Wasn't it so thoughtful of my niece. I just love that girl!
Emma wearing her new t-shirt. She loves it. Thank you!!
I helped a my friend with a baby shower on Saturday. She does most of the work doing the hosting and keeping things going. I just like to do "behind of scenes" sort of things.
I made these little tissue flowers and put them around the bottom of these little champagne glasses. I had to take a picture for my mom and dad. These glasses were stored at my folk's house in a cupboard for years! When I was little I would get them out and put water in them. Then I would place a red candy in them to make the water turn red and taste sweet. I thought they were pretty nifty. I asked my dad if I could have them a few years back and he dug them all out for me. I had to show them that I was using them.
Here is my grandmother's china. I have to make sure they know I'm using that to whenever I have the opportunity.
Here are some pictures of sweet Emma for all my sweet ones back home. Love you all!
With all the things that go on in the world I'm just so thankful to know that God is in control. I'm thankful that He has given me a cozy little house, food and a lovely little family. I'm also thankful to know that if those things are ever taken, He is still in control.
Our ordinary days are pretty extraordinary. At least I think so. :)
Emma loves bowls and spoons right now. She sure is learning how to stir pretty well. We have decided to splurge and buy her a little kitchen and shopping cart. She loves playing with them in the nursery at church. We spend a majority of our time in the kitchen so I think she'll love it.
We've been doing a little bit of painting.
Lily got sick of me taking pictures of her so she finally curled up in the corner of the couch and hid her face from me. Smart girl!
Every once in a while Emma will look at me now when I take a picture. :)
Here are some projects that have been keeping me to busy to blog. :)
I have been crocheting lovely little granny squares to make a cute afghan for my living area. I've noticed that a lot of the blankets I have around are just plain ugly. I don't need to have ugly blankets when I can make such cute ones.
Okay, I have to keep the so called ugly ones around because they sure do keep me warm in the winter.
I have made a couple more hats. I sent this one out to my niece last week. The style is a bit different but hopefully she'll like it.
We got two awesome packages from special friends in the mail last month around Valentines Day. They were packed with hand made goodies from sweet girls, chocolates, candy, note cards, socks, pajamas and a cute little outfit for Emma. We were thrilled...especially with the chocolates and candy! Yummy!
Emma had her 18 month check up last week. She weighs just over 21 pounds and is my little sweetheart. She sat politely on my lap during the appointment. She is very serious when we are out and about trying to take everything in.
