Budding Violinist

Emma’s Birthday….

Tracy / October 14, 2011

I *love* birthdays! (Well,those that belong to the younger folks around here, anyway. *smile*) Emma’s birthday always marks the “birthday season” in our home. I’ve been working recently to make these days extra special. I’ve added some things to our celebrations and I still have a couple of things to put together, then I’ll share the projects with all of…

My Big Girl…

Tracy / October 7, 2011

Tonight’s fun….glow bath– we like to shake things up just a little from time to time. *smile* So, the ingredients for this night of fun…..a bathtub, a handful of glow sticks from the dollar store and a bunch of littles: This little person didn’t want to come out of the tub!

I don’t know where to begin with this one… Courtney and I were trying out a new granola recipe last week from our sweet friend Betsy (Betsy, your granola is by far the BEST we’ve ever tried!! Thank you for sharing the recipe!!). I snapped a picture for a project we’re planning later this year when Emma saw the camera…

The saying goes “never leave a SUPERman behind”! ’cause you never know when a little sister will show up!!

July 20, 2010

Only SEVEN days until my birthday!!! *smile* I’m not sure why that is so exciting. We really don’t have anything big planned, but, it’s my birthday, and birthdays are just fun. : ) Well, we’ve been sewing! I’m so glad….for some reason, pulling out the sewing machine and playing with fabric just makes this new house feel even more like…
