Teeny Tiny is on the Move

We often call Ava Teeny Tiny because she is much smaller than the other kids were at her age. Perhaps because she's so little, it's hard to believe she's on the move.

Zoo Trip

We took advantage of the kids being out of school by going to the Jacksonville Zoo.


It was hard to tell, however, which monkeys were on
display and which ones were visiting.

Cameron Indoor

A good buddy from seminary invited me to go with him to a Duke game on campus.
I have loved Duke Basketball for years. Cameron Indoor Stadium was amazing.
After the game, I was able to get down on Coach K Court.
Thanks Rob!

Jake is 5

Hard to believe our little Jake is already 5 years old.
Here he is with his best friend (Eli, not Spiderman).

Seeing Eli and Jake here together reminded us that they've been best friends from the beginning.

Seven Things

My good friend Becky tagged me so here goes:

Seven Random Things About Me:

1. I almost named Emma Abigail instead. Actually I was sure I was going to name her Abigail until about 4 weeks before she was born. I have never regretted the change for a minute.

2. Despite having 4 difficult pregnancies followed by four c-sections and the fact that I KNOW that I don't want anymore kids... I still miss being pregnant and will always have baby fever.

3. I have ten beautiful, wonderful friends that I have never met. These ladies know me better than most of my family and have been the most faithful and awesome friends for the last 3 years.

4. I have lost 15 pounds in the last six weeks.

5. I have a strong love for high end handbags and shoes. I don't get to indulge often... but I dreamshop alot.

6. Whenever I get dressed to go anywhere my room ends up looking like my closet exploded. It takes me over an hour to get it cleaned up whenever I get back home.

7. Ava will be 6 months old on November 15 and she is still sleeping in a bassinet in our room... which is 6 months longer than any baby has ever slept in our room. I am having a little trouble letting go.

Thanks for tagging me. I now tag Kim!

Homework Time

















Eli brings a weekly homework packet home on Monday (typically 10-15 pages). He knocks it out in no time. By the way, notice the brain food he's snackin' on.

Emma Outside


Our Newest Little Girl

A friend gave us a dog, and she's a hit with the kids. This Jack-Russell & Schnauzer mix may not win any beauty pageants, but she's smart and sweet.

Ok, so maybe this is becoming a sewing blog!



I got this idea from crafster.com to turn an old mens dress shirt into little girl's dress. Heavens knows we have plenty of dress shirts in this house so I grabbed one and got to work. I think it turned out pretty cute for $1.50 of trim and $.98 of elastic.


...and yes I know that I need to make the boys something... I am getting on that this week.

Emma and Ava in their matching dresses


I decided to make Ava a dress to match Emma's... but they were out of the black material. I went w/contrasting material and I think they turned out cute. Of course I had pretty cute models ;)

I promise this isn't turning into a sewing blog



But my mom wanted to see pictures of the dresses I have made Emma. They aren't the best pics because Miss Priss wasn't in the mood for picture taking.

I'm Crafty ;)


I have wanted a new sewing machine for a while now and Chris suprised me with one on Monday. I thought I would post pictures of my first sewing project. Mostly for my Aunt Judy to see.
