Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

I can’t believe I never shared pictures from the Barn Yard Baby Shower we threw for my sister way back in February!  The nursery has a farm theme so we decided we would carry that through to the shower.  We had one little big problem though.  The stage in the Fellowship Hall at my church was still up from the Christmas Play and it needed to stay up for another Show we were having in March.  And taking that bad…

Another Easy Valance

Another Easy Valance

I recently finished curtain #3 of my Sister’s Christmas present.  Only two more to go and it’s already July.  Maybe I’ll have them all done by next Christmas.     Anyway, Curtain #3 is a valance for her laundry room.  I didn’t really use a pattern since I knew what I wanted the curtain to look like and it wasn’t too complicated.   I started with my fabric cut into the shape of a rectangle.  To figure out the width of…

Myrtle Beach, SC {2014}

Myrtle Beach, SC {2014}

We got back from a fun-filled trip to Myrtle Beach, SC a couple of weeks ago. We camped in my Mom’s motor home, like always, but this time we camped at Apache Campground.   You can read about the other campgrounds we’ve camped in at Myrtle Beach here and here.  I’ll also add a few thoughts on which ones I prefer at the end of the post. Here’s an onslaught of pictures of the highlights of our trip…   The girls…

Zoo Trip

Zoo Trip

  We found ourselves less than 30 minutes from the zoo recently and decided to change our plans a little so we could visit.  This was the girls’ second trip.  Our last visit was almost three years ago so McKenna barely remembered the trip and Avery had no recollection of it at all.   We started out in the Africa section.       This rare species of Monkey is native to the Bay Bush.        I…

My New Title

My New Title

I have a new title, y’all!  It’s one that I’ve coveted for a while.  I got it a little over a month ago and I’ve been remiss in not mentioning it here before now.  If you don’t blog it, did it really happen? My new title is…   A-U-N-T ! ! !   How cute is he?!?   His name is Tyler and he is perfection!  We are so happy to finally have a little boy in the family and the girls…

2013 {in Review}

2013 {in Review}

Here’s a look back on 2013 (mostly in pictures).  It was full of ups and downs, sickness and health and lots of precious memories.  I’ll do the blog favorites in review in another post.  I didn’t realize how many different trips we took until I looked back at the pictures for this post.    My parents gave us a family cruise for Christmas last year and we all went in January. It was a wonderful trip!     In February, we…

Avery’s 4th Birthday Party {Costume Party}

Avery’s 4th Birthday Party {Costume Party}

We decided to throw a little costume party for Avery’s 4th birthday.  Her birthday is around Halloween so we thought it would be fun for me the kids to wear their costumes again.  The awesome thing about a costume party is anything will work theme-wise.  See the Scooby Doo cake below. No one could ever accuse our families of being stuffy.  Most of the adults were dressed up in costumes and had as much fun as the kids.  Clearly, we don’t take ourselves…

Dollywood

Dollywood

We spent another day of our trip to the mountains at Dollywood.  The park opened at 10am on the day we went.  It took us a little while to get our act together and figure out what we wanted to do that day and didn’t get there until around 11am.  #amateurmistake  I wish we had gotten there a little sooner but we still managed to pack a lot into our day.     We bought the overpriced picture of the…

Cades Cove, TN

Cades Cove, TN

 We’re savoring the last week of summer before school starts back!  I can’t believe that summer is almost over.  We just got home from our last summer jaunt with my family last night.  I think I am officially a vacation crasher since I’ve already crashed a trip to White Lake, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC in addition to this one.  But we have had a blast doing it!  We drove over to Cades Cove, TN from Pigeon Forge one day of…

Myrtle Beach and Lakewood

Myrtle Beach and Lakewood

We just got back from a little camping trip in Myrtle Beach, SC.  My parents have a motor home and the girls and I often tag along on camping trips with them while Mr. Right is working. Mom scheduled this trip at the last minute and the only campground with openings was Lakewood Camping Resort.  We normally camp in Myrtle Beach Travel Park. Here’s what I liked about Lakewood… 1.  It has a lot of amenities…put-put, paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, a…
