Just checking in....

Hey friends! Sorry I have been so scarce, but let me tell ya I have been bu-sy!! Miss Madeline was officially DONE on Saturday, so I have been shipping out pre-orders and working on all the other time consuming things that come along with pattern making. It feels so good to be done! I have a couple of blog awards coming up (I should have already posted about them but I'm a big busy loser) but that will just have to wait, because my kids need mama. Today I have a little crochet project to work on and we are going to take the day OFF. We will eat (I've already had one request for potato soup), watch, play, and pretend whatever they want! It's time for things to slow down a bit. I have been struggling through this yucky morning sickness, working on the pattern every spare minute, and taking care of the kids and the house (OK not so much the house, it's bad). I am worn out and so ready for a day like today! This picture was taken from our porch at the beach. Pretty cool huh? (Am I still allowed to say cool? What is the age cut-off for that word? Maybe I'll ask Ben, he usually knows about these things. lol!) Happy Lazy day everyone!

The photo is great- a heart in the sky! I hope your morning sickness eases up soon, and congratulations on the pattern!

Love the heart, our God is so creative! Hope you had a relaxing day with your kids today. Our girls started school at our church's school today so there were some major changes for them. But, they all had a great day (after the youngest sobbed first thing this a.m.) and the chatter was non-stop after they got home. That makes a mama's heart happy! By the way, my mom is in her 60's and STILL says "cool", hee hee! One of these days (very soon, I hope!) I'll post again on my blog, but right now I have a slow computer and it takes forever! I'm so glad you have the morning sickness...not because you feel yucky, but because you're pregnant! Still rejoicing with you on that happy news, friend! Love ya!

Samantha,
Never ever stop saying cool!
I agree-how awesome is God to put that heart in the sky? And for you to have your camera handy to capture it! (I'll never stop saying awesome either)
How you get over that crummy morning sickness soon. Just keep taking care of yourself and that beautiful family. Hope you day off was fun.

That is cool. I just posted a sky picture taken from my bedroom window. I love the sky. It's really great in different places, like Montana and Paris. When I travel I like to take pictures of the sky.

That is so "Cool". ;o) It's amazing how things, like clouds, can show the love of our Lord and Saviour. :D

Wow! That picture is really wonderful. I hope you don't mind if I save it and email it to a few loved ones. I found your blog through your ad on soulemama. I'll have to read some more and look closer at the lovely dresses. Nice to *meet* you :)
