It is slow going in slow in getting projects done, figuring out my camera, trying to get the house organized.  I'm awaiting the summer months but trying not to let these short winter days fly by to fast.   I love my little piles of crochet projects I have around that I'm slowly working on.  I'm truly grateful for wonderful friends who always are so thoughtful and bought me those awesome snowman mugs.  You can't go wrong with two cups of hot chocolate.  Yes, sometimes I share a cup with the hubs but other times I hog them all to myself.
Say goodbye to Peter's long curl in the front.  Sunday I decided to chop it off so it was even with the rest of his crazy curls.  Now it can all grow crazy together.

My Etsy Shop

With a new year upon us, I'm looking forward to some new adventures.  Here are a few photos of the past month of the little ones.  
They are sweeter than sugar and everyday is an adventure with them.
On another note, I'm opening up an etsy shop.  Come check out my creations.  It's a slow process for me.  I'm not a big fan of taking pictures, downloading them or taking the time to actually sit and list items.   Hopefully as I learn more, the easier and better my listings will look.

Are you happy now?  Yes, but only for a day or so?  ha ha!

Being Silly With A Friend

Yesterday was the warmest day we've had here in months.  Emma saw the neighbors outside and quickly got on her shoes and coat.  She met her friend, J, at the fence and they sure did chit chat for a while.  Eventually he leaped over the fence to play (with a little help from his sister).  ha!  They had a great the mud.  I tried to just not think about the mess I would be cleaning up later.  Thankfully it only got on there shoes.  
They were ready to come in after some time on the swing set and have some good old macaroni and cheese and do some serious laughing while both of their mama's had a good visit and try to keep them from their sneaky, silly ways.  
I'm glad Emma and I have neighbors we can have in no matter how messy our home is.  We've been blessed with good neighbors who have become sweet, wonderful friends.  Now if we can only keep these two little ones out of trouble!

Road Trip

Last week we went on a little road trip and ended up two hours away from home to get Peter's social security number.  It's nice walking into places here and not having to stand in all.  I went right in and got a number.  Little did I know, my number was already up.  No one was in line in front of me and nobody came in behind me.
We stopped at a few shops but most of our time was spent in the car.  Peter got a little break and played with Jame's beard.  He has a really good grip!  Emma took a serious nap.  All that riding made her tired.  When we got home she headed to get her pajamas on right away.  Thankful for nieces that give her such pretty hand me downs that she just loves!

Quinoa with Brocooli and Grapes

Maureen over at Homemade Mothering has some great recipes.  After seeing this recipe on her blog I went right out and bought what I needed to make it.
It was so yummy!  It is going on my regular rotation of things I make.  The only change I made was using raisins instead of dried apricots.
You can find the recipe along with other great tips here.
