Big Changes...


...in our lives.
David and I have worked out a way for me to stay home with the babies. I am of course thrilled, albeit a wee bit nervous. I won't pretend that all days will be filled with perfect behaviour and sunshine. There will be challenges...but, I believe I can handle it. I have dreams, oh yes. I have plans. But, I feel they are best kept secret for the time being as I work hard now to make them into little realities. Plus, the idea of getting to make cookies and play with trucks and play dough in the middle of the day? Well, that just tickles me right down to my toes...
Yes, yes, it most certainly does.
Those beauties up there? They are from my garden this year. I am most proud...all one hundred of the tulip bulbs planted last Fall came in (As if I had anything to do with it, other than digging a hole, plopping in the bulb and covering it with dirt. Although I remember being quite tired when it was all said and done.). Thanks Papa for your gracious help! I wish you could have viewed the end result in person.

oh so excited that you get to be home with your littles... its awesome.

Now Anaheim.. hmmm Im about 20 minutes from there, so I don't know it super well.

Thrifting- a place called the Orange circle about 15 minutes away from Anaheim, would provide you with a whole day of thrifting.

Yarn Stores - I don't know, thats not my thing. I know scrapbook stores though...

umm things to do in Anaheim without a car. Will you have carseats?? If so maybe we can hit up something one afternoon or get lunch. Let me know.

Would be fun. Feel free to email me.

This is super exciting! And while there are days when I ask Mike at lunch if he'll stay home and I'll go to his work (like today) but it is so very very worth every moment. You'll sit down on the carpet and cry with them on some days but be on a total high on others. I love it and wouldn't have it any other way. :)
