A cabbage left over in the garden!

Looking for Roly Polys and collecting dirt.

Poutine, the bunny. Hubby named him. :)

Our storage shed. Gary and I both got locked in when the wind closed the doors shut. We had to punch the screen out of the left window, and then I had to shimmy up, out, and down to the ground. The kids were on the outside. We were on the inside. Mild panic ensued. In the end, all is well.

Continuing on the best week ever theme, my sister has had her baby!
I sweet little baby girl names Raelyn Nelle.
And I got to see her for a few minutes this morning.

I can't wait to hold her and get sweet baby snuggles.

We are feeling incredibly blessed and thankful for God and His timing!
We are stepping away from apartment dwelling and jumping into home-ownership and all of the joys that come with it!

So excited to do life with this cute little ranch!

Consignment Sale

This weekend I participated in my first Consignment Sale.
Luckily for the sale, I've been hoarding baby clothes and items for 4 years. Ha!
It's been weeks getting prepared for it, and I took off a day just to prep for it.
You have to wash and hang the clothes. Pin them to wire hangers.
Tag all of the items.
And then drop them off at the Sale site.

This was the back view of all of the things I was taking to the sale.
Over 120 pieces (and all of the clothes were multiple outfits).

I had high hopes!
The show started Wednesday evening and went through Saturday, and I sold 114 items!
It was really exciting - in a "mom" sort of way. Lol.
I really enjoyed the whole process, even though it was tedious, and kinda feel like there may be a calling there.
Who knows?
But seriously, so fun, and so rewarding to see a great payoff from all of my hard work!

After I dropped off all of the items for the Sale, I had time to come home and make this lovely baked pasta dinner (from scratch) for the fam. 
Color me domesticated!

New Year, New Post

We are 6 days into 2018 and things are going!
I started off the New Year in a bit of a funk. I was getting overwhelmed by things - well I had been accumulating overwhelmed feelings for awhile, but it all sort of hit hard over the holidays. 
By the time Jan 1st came around, I was determined to make a change and get out of my funk.

I needed to be a better person for my family.

I needed to fully invest myself in my work.

I needed to be there for my extended family.

And I needed to hear what God wanted me to do with everything.

We haven't been to church in over a month. We'd been there tonserve on Christmas Eve, and two weeks before that, but we hadn't stayed for service because that would have meant more time for the babes in nursery, and some days we don't feel like pushing them.
I think this has been part of my funk.
I am missing the extra immersion in the Word, and I am so looking forward to getting back in to it tomorrow.

In terms of resolutions for the New Year...
I wrote a few things in my notepad.
I have every intention of making them happen.

As always, the thrill of the New Year and the hope it brings is awesome. It's easy to get caught up in the what-ifs, but important to stay grounded in each day.

Master each day!
