Sponge Bombs

We found this fun idea for Sponge Bombs over at Counting Coconuts and the girls love taking them to the pool.  Just grab a few sponge packets, cut, twist, and secure with a zip tie and you'll be ready for summertime fun!

Sponge Bombs!

Bubble Snakes

The girls enjoyed making bubble snakes this afternoon.  This is a fun summertime project that we learned how to make from Confessions of a Homeschooler.

Items Needed:
-1 plastic bottle with bottom cut off
-half of an old washcloth
-rubber band
Just dip the washcloth bottom of your bottle into the bubble solution and give a big hearty blow!

A Precious Gift

     When I opened the box that arrived from my blogger friend, Kira, over at Just Like June, tears came to my eyes.  Look at this precious gift that she handcrochted for us to welcome our new baby Haddie.

     She knows that we love color and our beautifully crocheted afghan is exploding with a rainbow of love.  I learned how to correctly crochet my first blanket by watching Kira's tutorials and her handy work is sold over at Ami Lang Organics on Etsy.

     Thank-you Kira, we will cherish this precious gift!

Baby Photo Shoot

  My husband took this wonderful photo of Haddie and I crocheted the baby cocoon.  She is a little bundle of sweetness!
  Here is Olive and Jem meeting their new sis for the first time, what a precious memory.

Introducing Our Little Girl

Our family would like to introduce you to our newest family member...Haddie (blog name), born one week ago, weighing 7.1 lbs and 19 1/2 in.  It was the best birth I could have ever wished for in a hospital.  I will share our story soon!  The big sisters have been a huge help and are taking great pride in caring for her.  I am proud to report that nursing, healing, and sleeping are going well.  We feel so blessed to have a healthy, adorable daughter.  Thank-you for your love and support during these past 9 months.
