I hope that you all enjoyed your Easter weekend! Our celebration started out with a Good Friday service at our church. During the service we focused on Christ’s great sacrifice for us through death. Then on Easter Sunday the church service focused on Christ conquering death. He is risen and gives new life!
On Sunday afternoon we got together with family for dinner and had a great time talking and laughing.
On Monday my parents stopped by on their trip back home and we took Henry to the park. I think the adults may have had as much fun on the playground as Henry did.
Here are five things that made me smile this week.

Finally, with the help of a friend, I decided to make to make baby security blankets/lovies. Henry absolutely LOVES to cuddle with Mr. Owl and I can think of nothing better than for other kiddos to have their own best friend to snuggle with!
At the moment my shop only has two items but I have more fabric and more ideas bouncing around in my head!

Not sure what prompted me, but I decided that the wall in our office with the wood burning stove needed some artwork. I remembered reading Henry Ford’s quote “Chop your own wood and it will warm you twice” and thought … Continue reading →
Here are five things that made me smile this week. 1. Birds nest – Stephen found this nest filled with baby birds in our hedge. I am always amazed by birds nests. I think it is incredible that they can … Continue reading →
Stephen had a birthday recently….but he probably wouldn’t want me to tell you. It came and it went without much fanfare. Which is just the way he wanted it to be. There were smiles (and fuzzy pictures taken on the … Continue reading →
Those of you who have been to my house are probably thinking “Mantel? What mantel?” Ok, so I don’t really have a mantel. But I like to decorate the long, narrow table in my living room as if it were … Continue reading →
I started to write a Friday 5 but then decided to switch gears and tell you what has been going on around here recently. Silly Boy Henry usually has a smile on his face and is quick to laugh. It … Continue reading →
