wonderful christmas time

I know that anyone who is still reading my little blog here is ready for some new updates and pictures. But since it's late and I need to get pictures from our other computer onto my laptop a little reminiscing will have to do. Can't believe this was a couple years back now. It really is fun to see how much our little lady has grown. What a gift she is to us! 

Would love to recreate this little photo shoot again this year!

Love Christmas memories like this one!

Oh and can I say I need to make more of this soup! Like yesterday!!

Love making hats for little ones like this one.

And hand knit gifts like these. I have knitted some gifts this year that I will have to post.

Oh the excitement!

LOVE knitting by the fireplace!!

And seeing my two loves like this!

We love us some hot chocolate! ok and we like braids too. :)

Yes it's more soup I need to make. :)

And nothing beats mom's gingerbread cookies.

And all the fun they are to decorate with family.

Love my parents house all decorated!

And I love going out with this wonderful man on cold nights to see the lights and have a good time. My birthday is right around the corner and I am looking forward to doing just that. Oh we'll take in a movie after having a nice dinner somewhere, but just being with him and taking a walk while holding his hand does more for me then a dozen dinners or movies or gifts. So blessed to have him and call him mine!!!

Praying that you are having a wonderful Christmas time! If any of my sweet friends out there still read my blog leave a comment and let me know. Would love to hear from you and have a good reason to keep this little space up. I know I have been awful about it, but would be more motivated if I knew it blessed you! Will try to be on again soon with pics and news that is up to date. Till then......

fall is in the air

It has been quite a while since I posted anything and I am trying to get back in the groove of blogging more. So here it goes.... These are pictures from the past that bring back sweet fall memories to me. Me and my girl on the farm. Roses that I am starting to make again. I will try to post some recent ones that I have made soon. And then just some snapshots I have taken here and there when fall is in the air. 

Love this sweet girl so much!!

What a face! The plaid flower is one of my faves!

Really hoping we can go back to this farm and pick our own pumpkins again!! Not sure if it will happen though so we might have to settle for parking lot pumpkin patches round here. :) Either way fall is in the air today and I can feel it as the cool breeze blows in through my windows. Maybe we'll do some leaf rubbings today for art in school. We are homeschooling which is one of the many reasons I am not on here writing and sharing as much as I would like. But hopefully soon I can find the time to squeeze it in here and there. I really do enjoy it and have so much to share about what has been going on with us. So sweet friends if you still visit this little blog of mine please don't give up on me. I'll be on again soon! Happy Tuesday to you!

cousin fun!

We have been having a good time with some of Karina's sweet cousins lately. Thought I would just share a bit of their silliness on here. They are out in the pool most of the day and last week we had some fun at the beach. It was beautiful and the kids were great!! SO blessed to know these little people and spend time with them!!

This little lady cracks me up. All the others were swimming and she came up on the beach and buried herself. 

I am so glad we live so close to the water and can spend a day like this with good friends and sweet family! 

summer days

Not sure who has given up on this little blog of mine. To tell you the truth I almost did. But after thinking it over I really do enjoy getting on here and sharing how we are and have been through pictures and a few words. So many pictures so little time!! Time has been flashing by at the speed of light. So much has been going on with us and I can hardy believe that we are now in the middle of summer. I will say I am not going to commit too much time to this little space in an effort to really make the most of each day. So here is a little peek at us lately enjoying the warm summer days on the water. On this day we were spending some time with my extended family and celebrating my nieces 8th birthday. We had a great time as you will see!

Love this sweet birthday girl! 

My dad was so great to rent a couple boats for us to enjoy!! These kids love their Papou!

Love this of my cool bro just chillin!

SO blessed that we can share sweet times like this with our precious family!! God is so good and we thank Him for the gift of days like this and all the others too!! Feeling His sun on our faces and His glorious creation at our fingertips is truly a gift!! Don't take it for granted!
