In our homeschool we take many breaks throughout the year which is why we school through much of the summer. However, this is the first year we have actually taken a scheduled spring break and we are having fun this week! Enjoy some pictures from our visit to the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. My mom took care of Katherine so we could stay a bit longer. It’s been fun! Stay tuned for Wednesday’s adventure!
Yep, it’s true. Our sweet baby turned 1 year old today; actually at 5:09 this morning. She was my shortest labor; certainly not painless but the shortest! She has made up for the short labor by not allowing me to get as much sleep as I did with the previous 4 children.
Katherine Anya is a very happy and playful baby and a wee bit chubby. She wears 24 month old clothes! But I’m sure just like the others she will slim down in the next couple of years once she gets to walking.
Follows are way too many pictures but I couldn’t resist. Stay tuned for birthday party pictures coming next week.
I wonder if this will be the last first birthday celebration we will have???
I remember the day very well 12 years ago! I remember the ride to the hospital and the fact that my husband was unbuckled the entire ride… If you know my husband you would understand my shock! However, in his defense, I had a death grip around him to help with the pain so in reality there was no physical way he could wear a seat belt. I guess you could say he was buckled by a human seat belt!
Anyway, Natasha entered the world at 4:44pm on Sunday, March 2, 2003. She is such a wonderful blessing to our family and it is very exciting to watch her grow into a Godly, beautiful young lady. She loves her brother and sisters, is very helpful around the house, is always wanting to help me cook or bake and is full of contagious energy and joy. We love you Natasha and we look forward to all that God has planned for your life!
We had My-Hop pancakes for breakfast and Daddy and I took her to Chili’s for her birthday dinner.
I managed to dig up some old pictures and have included some new ones! Enjoy! Be sure to reach the bottom for last nights picture with Daddy!
I tend to make a big deal of Valentine’s Day but I like to change it to God is Love Day! I have several verses that I have printed out and laminated and I hang them up during the month of February.
This year, as I was searching for something special to make for everyone I came across a project that I desperately wanted to make for each person in my family. However, it was a sewing project and I can’t even sew on a button straight! I really wanted to make this project and I couldn’t figure out a way to make it without sewing. After chatting with Phil about it we decided to buy a very inexpensive sewing machine. I watched the short video that came with the machine and then I set to work.
Can you believe I did it? AND, I enjoyed every minute of it!!! Have I discovered a hidden talent? Well, I don’t know about that! If you look closely at what I made you can see many mistakes but it was fun nonetheless. I made chair back envelopes! I think they turned out really cute! At night Phil or I would put a love note and a treat in their envelope for them to discover in the morning. It was so much fun!
My mom made her world famous fried chicken to go along with our rosemary potatoes and salad. Then Belle and I made bright pink rice krispy treats to top off the evening.
I wonder what I will come up with next year???
