Summary of a Day

Our day starts with this darling little girl:Today she was sporting a new hairstyle! Not even 11 months old and she has enough hair for a pigtail. We were told she resembles Alfalfa from the Little Rascals, a Cupie Doll, and Pebbles from the Flinstones. :)

She also decided to drink out of her cup like a big girl today. That was a huge step for her! She really likes someone to hold it for her, namely mommy.

When Ava was teeny tiny she had some surplus baby items. I had returned these to Target and had a nominal amount on a gift card. Thankfully, that gift card worked with an excellent price and we finally got the walker for Squeaker that we've been wanting to for a long time.

She loves it, and had the gizmos all figured out, all by herself, in about 3 minutes.

Friends gifted us with furniture. It is new to us, and we are enjoying it so much! Now we can offer you a comfortable place to sit when you visit.
The Lord's provision has amazed us:

Hubby worked hard and put this up above the doorway to the Sunroom/Dining Room:

I do a little happy sigh just looking at it.Ah, the benefits of Hobby Lobby and their 50% off wall decor.
It's exactly what Scott and I had pictured over that door. You see it the minute you come into the house. So perfect.
As for the other bounty the Hobby Lobby sale yielded, I will show you that once it's hung.

  1. Jealous! Could you come and do this over my fireplace. One of my favorite verses to claim over a home. I guess your house is really a home now!
