Under the Big Top

As a mother, I often feel like a circus when I take the crew out in public..or church, yikes. But living with a bunch of clowns has never been so fun.

Little Projects

With school being cancelled for over a week I've decided to jump back into sewing and crafting. I made some pillowcase dresses a while ago but still have a LARGE pile of pillowcases to be tweaked. Here are two of the many that I made over the last couple of days. The girls wore them to church today.

By the way, the above picture is my new favorite of the the girls.

(They can't keep their eyes open because of the sunshine.)

Our little boy was blessed at birth with a luscious head of hair. It makes the ladies and church run their finger through it and the men look upon him with a strange feeling of jealousy. But there is a down side...cutting it. Try to imagine cutting the hair of an infant. They don't sit up, the don't hold still, their slobber attracts all the cut hairs and then they look like they have a beard of hair clippings. I'm always waiting for him to hack up a hairball. I know many moms who don't cut the hair of their babies because it's soft and curly and cute. My mom, my mother-in-law and many more of my friends. I don't think ill of them, but it's not what we want for this little guy...who looks a lot like Julia Child in this picture.

Now he looks like he's saying good bye to us and leaving for college. Here's to a bright future for my little man.

For the Beauty of the Earth.

Sunshine and beaches are way overrated. Twenty seven inches of heaven just fell on us. Even though the power went out...twice, we're okay. I'd take a day walking around our property with snow up to my mid thigh over a day at the beach. Call me crazy, but the weather here is perfection.
