sorry for the lack of action over here as of late.

for the most part, we are doing well.  but some days, it seems just keeping our little home afloat is the most i can do.

thank you to all of the generous love and support that has been poured out upon our family.

we are thankful to be at 25 weeks and we are praying for many many more.  most of my days have been pretty good in the last few weeks.  we have had a couple big scares, but with each passing day, we rejoice to have made it one more.

thank you all.

be mine.

 for lily's valentine's day party at school, we used a potato to stamp muslin bags and made crayons. 

she enjoyed creating them, but i think she is even more excited about handing them out to her friends!

we are just hoping that no 4 year old thinks it is chocolate and tries to take a bite...

sending lots of valentine's day love to everyone in our lives!

 lily just started taking ballet and she is loving it. 

i know i am partial, but i think she is pretty adorable...


my family threw my dad a surprise 60th birthday party last weekend and it was a huge success!

not being a family good at keeping secrets from one another, we were thrilled that he was genuinely shocked when he walked in the door of the restaurant to find over 50 of his closest friends waiting for him.

it was so much fun to celebrate my dad and we are so excited as his birthday draws nearer!

so, on february 13th, be sure to give skip a birthday shout out!

we love you so much, dad!  happy birthday!!!
