Stampin' Up!

My friend Elaine's mom Sandy (Who is my friend too...) has been selling a crafting product called Stampin' Up! It is a very fun company, and after lots of time thinking it through, I am going to start selling it too! 

I am going to have classes and workshops that I hope people will come and learn lots of fun crafty things! I am also going to be selling their merchandise. Please look at my website if you are interested in finding out about it, or just seeing what my passion is!

I would even love to have classes at other peoples homes or churches... whatever works for us and your friends! I just enjoy crafting SO MUCH! I thought this would be a great journey for me!

Birthday Boy!!!

We all were up at 8 and off to the Half-Century of Progress farm show in Illinois. Happy Baby today! 
We stopped for breakfast, since Brennan was born at 8:38am, but he wasn't into breakfast very much!

Hot Hot Hot day. And no planned naps, didn't make for a long term great time. But we all improvised.

I brought the carrier, because I knew I could get him to sleep in it. And I did, but it took a while.

We got home around 7ish. and we were all worn out! A wonderful day all around though.

Happy Birthday Sweet Brennan! We are so blessed to have you in our life!

Best Buds

So this was the first time that I had watched another child for a while. Well... other than my own. We had Rollie for a couple of hours so Julie could get some errands done.  It worked out great!!! I think we'll do it again soon! They really do play well together!

Sick baby boy

Three days before his big birthday party, Mr. Brennan became sick. Luckily it was just a 24 hour thing... But here he is in the thick of sick.

And now better! xoxo

Artistically sleeping

I love these colors.
I love seeing him all snug in bed.
I love his peace.

Mother and Son. A wonderful bond.

We've been having some wonderful times lately! I can't imagine life without him!
I love you forever Brennan!

Glasses Game

Brennan thinks its fun to take off my glasses. Today was the first day that he put them on himself to be silly! How can I say NO. It's so sweet!

This is our first spaghetti eating. It went VERY well! He's so cute covered with the delicious pasta! Even eating it off his belly for seconds!

New Dew

I needed something fun for the summer! And something easier to maintain.
