I know I haven't posted a Wordless Wednesday since spring but it's time to get back into things and thought no time like the present. Last week we finally had our deck stained. For years it has looked like this: Now it looks like this: The color had a tint of purple in it but the place swore to us it wouldn't be strong. We did a wood sample and just loved it and called it a go. … [Read more...]

John Deere excavators clearing trees

It was a crazy weekend around here. Crazy as in crazy busy. I finally got started on my craft room remodel and the tree project of Hubby's had some major progress. Progress like 74 trees cleared. To get a good visual you can see an old photo of my house here. See ALL the trees on the right (your right), well they are ALL gone. It was a bit shocking at first. We're still getting use to … [Read more...]

Magenta Pink Lilies

We've been working hard on our landscape for quite a few years now and this was the year to finally start looking around at flowers. Neither of us really know too much about flowers and honestly have avoided them at all costs. We have been gardening vegetables for several years but never flowers. We bought flowering bushes two years ago and not all have survived. Winters are the hardest for us as … [Read more...]

I know I've said it before but I'm a summer girl. I love the sun and the warm air so now that they daily temps are finally getting over the 60 degree mark I'm finally coming out of my cave. I'm not the only one either. My whole family is enjoying all the green and fresh air too! We have been enjoying the bike trails for walks but finally pulled the bikes out. Johnny's spring soccer season is … [Read more...]

Oh how I've failed you all on these Wordless Wednesday posts. I know it's been a few weeks and I'm sorry but I plan on being better and getting back to my weekly posting for you all to link up on! Over the weekend we had to do something drastic. You see Sawyer and his hair were quickly becoming an issue. It was all the time and no amount of water and a brush could tame it. Believe me. … [Read more...]

Sawyers 2nd Birthday #momspotted

I can't believe I still haven't shared any part of Sawyers birthday so far besides his laundry basket photos. For his actual birthday we didn't too much since it was a weekday but we did go out to Friendly's for lunch and Daddy got out of work to join us. Sawyer was pretty happy that his kids meal came with a sundae covered in m&m's. Afterwards we headed over to the mall and went to … [Read more...]

TWO Sawyer James Laundry Basket Milestone

Last Friday we celebrated Sawyer's birthday! I'll be sharing our day shortly but I wanted to share our cute milestone photos! Remember these? I decided I needed to repeat this and he thought I was funny! I wish I had done it someplace other then a windowless hallway so the lighting wasn't awful though.... I'm glad that he didn't cry the whole time like this: And thought it was just … [Read more...]

Sawyer in Zutano upset.

My little boy got another haircut that completely took him from baby to toddler. With that we've gotten some incredibly adorably sad faces lately that are too cute! Normally, I wouldn't take a picture while he was on time out but he was so sad he had upset me and was staring at the floor with such a sad face. I thought I had hidden around the corner and right as I took it he looked up. It was so … [Read more...]

Oh boy! What a weekend. We almost got through it too. It was 5 minutes past bedtime but Sawyer was playing so contently. What were a few more minutes of him playing really going to do? Well, Sunday night it did quite a bit.  He fell right into his wooden activity cube he was playing with and sliced his forehead pretty good. At first hubby & I weren't sure what to do. The bleeding stopped … [Read more...]
