Lydia's first dream is to own a horse ranch-- second dream is to design fashion dresses. Quite a variety :)
And so begins the sewing lessons... Thank goodness for the new world of the Internet! For sewing-challenged mom's like me, we found this great booklet with a accompanying devotional, called Catch the Sewing Bug. In it are little projects and beginning step-by-step skills~

After recent visit to a relaxing spa, Mark and I were surprised how yummy simple things can quench your thirst. Served at the spa was this refreshing water with a hint of mint and cucumber~
You can easily make this yourself for a relaxing time-out at home. Simply fill a pretty pitcher with water, add some cucumber slices, lemon slices, and mint leaves~ allow to sit for a few hours, and suddenly water doesn't sound so boring~
Breath deep and relax!

OK Mom and Tony-- (and Lauri, too) these are for you---
Updated house pictures. It's coming along. We've now concluded this really is an Extreme Home Makeover-- in SS..LLL..OOO...WWW motion. Like 3 years slow :)
the bottom half of the house is ready for stone to be added.
Notice how Mark's hole in the upper window really stands out, adding some extra character?? :)

How is our summer being spent? Along with many other activities, enjoying the yummy fruit of the season~
Thanks grandma for the yummy goodies~ and for the jelly that Lydia informs me about- "Mom, you'll never be able to make that. Grandma's is the best in the world!" She has a point :) What were the boys doing while the ladies were in the kitchen?
Boys will be boys :)

I can't believe it-- our baby boy turned 10 yesterday! For all the mothers out there who can't see beyond sleepless baby nights and dirty diapers-- time really DOES FLY! Enjoy every minute!
Yes-- that's a handy dandy new pocket knife- sometimes a mom just has to look the other way. And say a prayer. Or two. What's that on the plate? A birthday breakfast french toast dinosaur-- created by big bad Dad! The red stuff is the little dinosaur he's eating. Yum. ;)
Happy Birthday Elisha!
