I would just like to publicly profess (for the millionth time) that I have the best friends and family around. Right before heading back to England, my cousin, Laila Eva, hosted a baby shower for me and it was just perfect. Since we don't know the gender of the bun in my belly, she used a grey and yellow color theme which I am now considering using all over my house as it was so pretty.
I signed up for the Click Mama Click workshop hosted by two crazy talented photographers here in England - Amanda of Footsteps Photography and Jennifer of J Butterfield Photography.
've been on an organizational and purging kick for the past several weeks. As a result, I've forced Jason into emptying every single closet, container and piece of furniture in our house. I am now proud to say that I know exactly what I own and have gained massive amounts of space which I am dedicated to NOT refilling with junk.
The past two months have flown by and I never took the time to document all the ways we celebrated throughout the month of October. I know people have many opinions about whether or not Christians should observe Halloween and in our family, we have are comfortable letting Lena dress up and carve pumpkins as well as trick-or-treat. But more on that later.
For Lena second birthday we rented the local tumble gym for an hour and let the kids run wild. We are blessed to have an amazing community of both friends and family who love Lena as if she was their own. Despite many of them not having young children, everyone came out to watch the birthday girl show off her gymnastics moves.
Here are some snapshots of our trip to Washington. Lena was a trooper and for the most part, was up for whatever. We had some nice, relaxing mornings with my parents before they went to work/sleep. They're on opposite work schedules so we had to get in our visits early [...]
We're currently a one-car family so the schedule changes coupled with cold and rainy weather has forced me to get more creative in coming up with activities to entertain myself and the Bacon Bit. After a few days of being stuck in the house, everything starts closing in on you. So, I decided we should do some crafts and I went hunting through the closet for some supplies.
I saw the cutest and sweetest idea today and loved it so much, I decided to do a version for Lena Eva. Design Mom is an amazing blog and if you've never checked it out, it's worth a look. I always leave inspired to be creative.
