under construction...

I am not much of a blogger...meaning, I dont know the ins and out of blogging, but I do want bigger pictures and my previous layout wasnt working for that purpose...so I will be under construction for a few days (or weeks) until I figure out a good look for the wood cabin. THANKS!

in case you are wondering...

this is why I cant let Elle dress herself yet! besides her shoes being on the wrong feet, she has multiple pairs of socks on with those leg warmers!

and she wants to wear her night gown out...with a snow hat. hmmm.


This Happy Day...

this happy day,

birds were chirping, flowers budding, lion laying down with the lamb...

had a sad ending.

Elle walked straight into the corner of a TILE POST...head on, full speed! We were in the mall and at first I thought things were ok...and then I noticed her blood soaked hair matted to her head. Rob did the stitching when he got home...7 stitches altogether and a very proud dad for his first stitching of his own child. Luckily, her hair covers it...and she hasnt even talked about it or touched in since Monday!

Jane is the sweetest little thing! I cant even believe this year has gone by so fast!

Li-Ip (lipstick)

I cant even begin to explain Elle's obsession with lipstick. If she finds it---it becomes hers! She goes over and over and over on her lips and spends her extra time applying to our lips!
