God is Good!

All the time! I just wanted to take time to praise the Lord. The children and I had a wonderful time outside this afternoon working in the garden. (Our wonderful neighbor even came by for a visit. :-) ) It was such a beautiful day that it helped me to forget about my nausea and such. Except I realized that I move slower than I did a few months ago. lol Oh well....I only have till October right. :-D To be outside in our Lord's creation is such a blessing and I just had to share that with you all. So please....if you have nice weather where you live...take advantage of it! And if it is raining...praise the Lord for his goodness. People in North Myrtle Beach could really use it right now (It's where my parents have their second home) and their good friends may have lost their home to the fire. Please pray for everyone down there. Last I heard 70 homes where lost, 100 homes were damage, and many areas are completely destroyed.

Show and Tell (4/24)

Show and Tell

Welcome to "Show and Tell Friday!" Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there's a story behind your special something, that's even better!

I haven't shared in a long time. I know...shame on me. :-) I have already shared these before with others, but I wanted to share a couple of the dresses I have made for my Sweet E. She is such a pleasure to sew for. She loves getting new dresses and I enjoy creating new things and practicing my sewing skills. :-)

This is the dress I made for her birthday. She requested pink and I picked something in the middle. I have never made this dress before but love how it turned out. She has already worn it many times!

I enjoyed making this jumper as well because she can wear it during any season. :-)

I just realized I don't have a picture of her other birthday outfit. Shame on me...I will have to get a picture of that one soon. :-) Hope you enjoyed these! :-)

Tuesday, April 21, 2009 don't do this?

This past Saturday was the perfect day to be outside and get some yard work done. I just wanted to share some pics of the children helping to measure a post hole. What? You don't measure your post holes this way? It makes it super easy. :-) Try it some time. lol

Yep...It's a good depth now. lol :-)

(I just have to say...our camera keeps getting worse...the pictures are not great anymore. Praying to get a new one before the baby comes.)

A lot of Excitement!

Yesterday I went to see my wonderful midwife for the first time. Everything looks good and after about 15 minutes and 2 tries I finally got to hear my little ones heart beating. This baby was playing hide and seek and the midwife and I were loosing. I can't believe how long it took, but it reminded me of Big T. He was the exact same way. :-)

Also...I wanted to quickly say congratulations to my cousin on the birth of her first child. A beautiful baby girl. (No..I haven't seen a picture, but all babies are beautiful.) Well, I better get some work done. Hopefully I will get around to posting more pictures soon. :-)

Blessing to all!
