By the way

For those who were brave enough to sign up for me to make them something; I am pretty excited! I have it narrowed down to a couple choices, but you will have to wait and see what it will end up being! For Cari, Aimie and Taya, the lucky (we'll see if you still think so after you get your thing!) ones, I need to know what is a favorite quote/scripture of yours and what colors do you like/have in your homes.

Almost done

As I am writing this, my two-year-old is in the tub and my two-month-old is snuggled up with Daddy downstairs so I have a few blissful moments where I can just sit and take a breath. There is a gigantic pile of laundry next to me waiting to be folded (I am pretty proud of myself; I spent the whole day doing laundry and can now say there is not a dirty piece of laundry anywhere in our house . . . at least for the next hour until Jeremy and I change for bed.), but it is going to keep on waiting!

Our family finally caught the dreaded cold that has been passed around everywhere, but only half of us have been afflicted. Kadin and I have been sniffling and coughing for the last couple days, but Jeremy and Kylee are thus far safe. Let's hope it stays that way; I really don't want to have a sick baby!

Other than that, not a whole lot has been going on in our lives. I am trying to think what is new or exciting and the answer is, truthfully, not much. I am getting antsy for spring and warm weather; both because I hate being cold all the time and because Kadin really needs to get out of the house and be outside to burn off some of his excess energy. But I think that is still a little ways off seeing as how it snowed again today! Nothing stuck, but the gently falling flakes have lost their charm and I would be plenty happy to not see them again anytime soon!

I have found a new obesssion; making bows for Kylee. Thanks Annie and your great online how-to book! I went to the craft store this weekend and picked up a ton of different kinds of ribbon to make Kylee bows to match all her cute clothes. I think I am getting the hang of it and they are turning out pretty cute! I am totally going to be that nerdy mom that has a different colored bow for every outfit, but I'm only going to have a little girl once, so I might as well enjoy it and live it up! I will have to post some pictures of her modeling her clothes and bows; I think she is pretty darn cute, but then again I am biased!
