New Homes


Since they are very small bunnies and kitties, they can’t really send forwarding addresses. The new homes are located at 1 and 2 Kitchen Table Loop. The families are settling in well, and their creative directors (the girls) had fun doing up the houses! ๐Ÿ™‚

Arnt they adorable. The girls recieved the families as a birthday gift from Nana. They love them! When we were in town yesterday Hobby Lobby had the photo boxes 50% off, and we found some paper they liked in my stash of scrapbooking things. I think it’s fun how the girls personalities come out then they do things like this! ๐Ÿ™‚ Clara’s is the Kitty Family and Flora’s is the Bunny Family.


A Birthday


I wish there was some way to put into words how I feel about this man. How happy he makes me and how thankful he is mine. I am not a great writer, I don’t have a way with words but I can say this:

Aaron, I love you. I am thankful for the man you are, the husband you are and the father you are. Thank you so much for your constant love and care of us. Thank you for your hard work, your goofy jokes and being my man. I pray you have a wonderful year old man!

All My Love, Amber

Messes Happen

IMG_2908 IMG_2909

Little hands, working hard to make something special for their Daddy. Smiles and giggles and bossing the Daddy around. Frosting from heat to toe, all over the table and a little on the floor. Some messes are perfect, wonderful and just right. ๐Ÿ™‚ Messes that come from wanting to make a special treat for Daddies birthday are messes I clean up with a smile.

A Winter Day

Here are some snap shots from yesterday and today. It’s been cold, and we are even more thankful for our work horse wood stove. We had a load of wood delivered int he middle of the nasty flu bug the visited our house, and today Aaron got the rest chopped and stacked at the back door for easy grabbing. I am knitting a sweater for Andrew and yesterday I made a batch of (mostly) spelt french bread that turned out great! Laundry is being done and the kids are playing outside. We are getting back into the swing of school and addition has finally click for Flora. Tonight I am cooking salmon and garlic green beans for dinner and planning on enjoying a cozy evening with my man. All in all, a couple great winter day at our house.

Fun at the childrens hands on science place!


They went to the science center one day, and talked Nana into taking them back the day after. It was a hit! The kids had a blast with Nana while we spend some special time together. We are looking forward to making this a yearly deal. Nana gets to play for a few days, and we get away for a small break. Sounds blissfull to me. Although I missed these little people very much.

Pet Stores Are Dangerous!

We go in for something as simple as food for the hamster and come home with this cutie…..

Someone is 7 ~ Jan 14th

I can not believe over 7 years ago this little girl was born and by doing so, gave me the best job ever. That of Mama. She is a joy, a smart cookie and so very funny! ๐Ÿ™‚ We sure are blessed to have her has a right hand helper, animal lover, bossy big sister and a girl who is learning to love God with all her heart. She is a treasure!
