What's new...

Firstly I have to say that if I have a least favorite part of blogging it would be having to come up with some sort of title for each post...anyway, I digress...

Things I am loving right now:

Being flu free. The babies are well and getting back to their normal selves. Thankful for health, so thankful. Oh, how I prayed last week.

Couponing. I went to a free class and I became very motivated to save us money. My first outing resulted in over $60 of savings.

Story time on Mondays at the local library. We meet friends there, do crafts and listen to stories. Lovely.

Knitting. I finished a sweater for Evelyn and I am now working on one for me. Next it's a hat for Elijah. Wish me luck.

Frozen croissants. Just leave out over night then bake. Easy!

Plotting for Christmas. If I could just pull out the sewing machine and get started!

Sleep. I just wish I got more of it. :)

Being blessed...more then I can say.

There and Back Again...

I hate to start a post with an apology, I never meant yo be gone so very long. Of course we were out west for nearly three weeks, but I had hoped to post there...it never seemed to happen.
What fun we had, but it was too long to be away from home and from David. I have sworn that I will never travel on planes with my children, by myself. ever. again. Going out was not so bad, but coming home was a nightmare...full on meltdowns with kicking and screaming...delightful. But we made it and since then we have been trying to settle back in...that has been hard too. I took the babies to the doctor today. They definitely have the flu, it may or may not be the swine flu. We will have to wait and see. So I will be tending to little sickies and being a hermit.
I will probably post a bit sporadically for awhile...but, I do have lots of pictures to share, so I may do a few picture only posts for awhile. See you soon!

Note: Colleen, I have lost your new e-mail address...send again please? I don't have access to your blog and I can't leave you any comments and I would like to keep in touch...thanks!
