We've lived in Canton, just over a month now and we've been so busy unpacking, setting up the house, taking care of the kids, adjusting to a new area, getting into a new job/routine, preparing for Christmas + Norah's 1st birthday (wow!), and just trying to have a normal day-to-day family life. \
I've been working on so many craft projects + new recipes too, that I realize how crazy I am to attempt all this with everything else we have going on. But it IS Christmas- I just can't help it! ;) Plus, sewing/crafting helps me feel like not everything in my life has changed! Its nice to revert to something I know, to get lost in fabric and the hum of my machine!
I've been longing to get back to blogging in the past couple weeks. But I just can't bear taking the time away from crafting and from my family and all the other things that really are more important! Then I got a comment this week from a sweet mom who said she missed my posts coming on of her blog stats. Ahhh! So sweet! I felt so loved, like my little blog really is appreciated out there! So I knew then I needed to find some time to get back on here! It was the push I needed! Thanks Jules! :)
Master bedroom redo!
All the furniture (minus the bed), lamps and decor is from Ikea.
Still need decor, and just the right curtains! :)
(Sorry, my photos aren't the greatest)
Christmas jammies for 3 sweet cousins + slippers! Can't wait for a picture with them wearing them! (Wish we could see Baby Brecken in his, so we get a pic all together!)
And I've decided these Dragon Slippers for Titus are the most adorable things I've ever made! :) And he wears them ALL the time- even to sleep! I think I'm even going to let him wear them at church on Sunday, because they're going to be talking about Dinosaurs (creation!) in their lesson! :)
I made this table runner for Christmas, but I'm tempted to leave it up all year!
Christmas cookies with the little man! :) I didn't realize til the last minute that I didn't have any christmas sprinkles... so we just went a different route! Ever seen neon snowmen, trees and angels? :)
I've been crocheting some infinity scarves! ;) Love my little model!
Norah's walking EVERYWHERE! :) Such a cutie!
|can I have some of your snack?|
We're enjoying this weekend with our first visitors- my parents! So my kids are having a blast! Plus it's snowing and we have Christmas presents to open! And I'm hoping to get some time to work on some sewing projects and go on a date with my hubby since we have babysitters! :)
Well this is getting long... but hopefully you've enjoyed a little glimpse into our life right now!
We're so thankful for God's goodness and blessing in our new life!
