Well, I'm working backwards from March to January. But I'm glad to just be able to update the blog! I only have an iPad and can't blog on it but Nate is being so kind to let me use his computer tonight. So I'm doing another big update.
Rosalyn is taking sewing lessons right now and has learned the straight stitch. I gave her a bundle of pillows to stitch that had come apart . She is working on a making 2 pillowcases right now and a surprise baby gift for the baby. She loves it and wants to "make our home beautiful now"!
Nate's birthday was in March. His birthday was on a Sunday this year. When he got home from church he found out he had to preach at another church that evening. It was a long day for him. But while he was gone, the kids and I decorated the house, made a special dinner for him, and ran to the store so we could have his favorite...angel food cake, strawberries, and cool whip. The kids loved making posters and hanging balloons and then jumping out and saying surprise to daddy. We are so thankful for Nate...he's a great daddy, a loving husband and best friend.
Katie lost her first 2 teeth! She lost her first tooth one evening and then 2 days later the second one came out. She was so proud!
Knox started working hard on putting together a wooden train. He loves tools and has great patience while working on it. We haven't finished yet but he's proud of it. (There's the heating pad on my stomach. I had a horrible nerve issue the first and second trimester. Heating pad was the only relief.)
The girls studying outside. We live in a neighborhood but what I love about our home is the back yard. We have a large green space and these woods that the kids love to play in. I had to capture this moment.
Sadly, this is the only snow we had this year. And it melted very quickly.
