Random Pictures – January

May 17, 2012

I am still so behind in updating this blog… so here’s an attempt to update for the month of January… A great find on craigs list… I have really REALLY wanted a piano for a long time. I’ve missed being able to sit down and play. I’ve lost a lot of my training and skills […]

Katelyn’s Photo Shoot {January}

May 3, 2012

So, I made a new years resolution to do a ‘photo shoot’ of Katelyn once a month this year. I needed some updated pictures, and so did her Grandma and Nana! Sad – I know!  It has been so rewarding and so much fun.   Here are the pictures we did in January. It was […]

Katelyn’s Artwork

March 20, 2012

You know those moments when you are REALLY upset and you know that if you take a picture you will be grateful because you can look back on it and laugh?   Well…   The other day this happened…   I was not a happy mommy – and Katelyn was not happy to be sitting […]

Home-made Slide

December 30, 2011

If you are clever – you can use existing furniture to make a home-made slide!   It’s quite simple really – just find an opening that you think might be big enough to squeeze through. Carefully slide in and hope you don’t get stuck. Then wiggle your way to the other side. Ta Da! A […]

Duck, Duck, Goose

December 29, 2011

We had so much fun feeding the ducks and geese. Katelyn is always happy to go out and explore new places.         Katelyn was running all over the place – I usually don’t mind so much, but we were on a dock and the river is quite deep. I was very grateful […]

Finger Painting

December 25, 2011

We love painting in this family! Katelyn loves painting  and mixing the colors together. I love the artwork! (although I need to send some of it to family!)       There’s nothing quite like painting your hand or squishing paint through your fingers. Katelyn loves to create new artworks for the front of my […]


December 24, 2011

This little girl is so fun. I remember playing with olives – back when they would fit on my fingers.  I don’t know why but they would taste better if you could eat them off your fingers.   Our lunch dates are always so fun and so messy! I tried out a new recipe – […]

Home-made Strawberry Jam

December 22, 2011

Home-made freezer jam is sooo good! It’s definitely a summer tradition and so much fun. We lovingly call it ‘Strawberry Sugar’ instead of Jam.   Because it practically is just strawberry flavored sugar. But – it is so delicious and so much better than the store bought stuff – BRAD! 🙂   For one of […]

New Friends

December 20, 2011

(I’ve been trying to catch up on my blog – it’s pitiful – I have pictures and posts that I want to put up. Even though they are months old, this is one of my easiest ways to keep a family journal and to show our family and friends what we have been up to. […]
