Last week was a big birthday week in our house.  I turned...30!  I got a new lens for my DSLR for my birthday.  So there was a lot of playing around and trying it out.

Juliana and Samantha

Why is he on the counter?

Wait...why is he on the counter?



Isn't she just so sweet?  We are all pretty crazy about this little baby girl.


Then a few days after my birthday our little man turned 2!  He was all about it.  He still doesn't talk a whole lot, but the one thing he can do is sing the "Happy Birthday" song.  

Blowing so hard!

He was trying sooo hard to blow out those candles, but blowing is trickier than you might think. ;0)  His birthday was full of Thomas the Tank.  The kid was decked in Thomas clothes and played with Thomas engines only to be interspersed with us reading him Thomas books.

Carefully removing his candles

Carefully, taking off his candles.

I am getting the itch to get a new routine going.  I am trying to go to bed early so I can wake up and not feel like zombie mommy.  One thing about nursing is that I am getting to read a whole lot more.  I have been reading The Simple Mom books and have been inspired to make things happen instead of just letting things happen.  My life is really busy right now, but I still want to find time to exercise,sew, blog and well, have fun!  If you haven't read her blog before, check it out!

-Happy Easter!-

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter!  We started our day quite early opting to go to church for the sunrise mass instead of fighting the crowds later on in the morning.  Then we came home and rested for awhile before having brunch and an Easter egg hunt.

There were no handmade Easter dresses this year.  Just some pretty store bought dresses.  Thank you, Costco. ;0)

It is harder to get a good picture of this girl.  She always thinks the camera is a time to come up with some sort of pose!


We later went and celebrated with extended family and had another Easter egg hunt!  Josiah was all about the hunt this year.  He loved gathering eggs and finding delicious candy inside.

Woops.  We forgot his Easter basket.  Doesn't he look pleased with himself though?

Just one more of him because he just looked so cute in his little Easter outfit.


There hasn't been a lick of sewing since Samantha has been on the scene.  There has been a lot of holding and snuggling though.  I forgot how much your life just goes to living moment by moment instead of having any sort of big plans.  However, it has been nice to slow down and just enjoy her.  She is starting to wake up more, and I actually got her and Josiah to take a nap at the same time this afternoon.  That was nice!  Here is to more of that!
