It’s a Baby Girl!

Sisters <3

Sisters šŸ™‚


Apparently, I only get the itch to blog when I’m talking about babies! My last post was nearly a year ago and about my cousin’s baby boy. We have had a busy year and I plan on keeping up better on here with our goings-on. I’m sure my parents would like me to continue. šŸ˜‰ Today, I am excited to share the news that I am going to be an Aunt! My little niece will be here before we know it and I cannot wait to spoil her rotten. That’s what Aunts are for, right?

A couple of weeks ago we had a shower for my sister-in-law to celebrate the little one and it was such a blessed time with friends and family. I was in charge Ā of the decorations and in my typical fashion, it took forever and a day to get them done. Out of necessity, I started planning and working on everything back in January. (It can be difficult to fit time in for crafting! ) I put my Cricut Expression to work using several cartridges, including Flower Shoppe, Baby Shower and the butterfly from Cake Seasonal Sampler. Ā Several of the decor items will also be used in Baby’s nursery and I used colors that went with the crib bedding. Ā Having two boys, I REALLY enjoyed making all the girly flowers and butterflies.

We are thrilled to see our family grow and I know my Brother and Sister-in-law will be wonderful parents. Baby Girl is already loved so much and as the Psalmist wrote “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him.” Psalms 127:3 (NLT)

This past ChristmasĀ Legos invaded our home. Both boys enjoy playing with Legos and knowing their Daddy and Uncle’s enthusiasm for them, I guess they will never stop thinking little plastic bricksĀ are pretty darn cool. Ā Junior delights in Ā the building process and JD does what three year olds do best – he’s an expert demolisher. Continue reading »

Morning Reflection

This morning I woke up beforeĀ 5 AM. Anyone that knows this family, KNOWS we are not exceptionally early risers. However, I couldn’tĀ get back to sleep and besides thinking about the laundry I needed to get caught up on, I began to think about my friends. Even more specifically, thanking God for my friends and loved ones. Continue reading »
