Really Good Pancakes

So if you are in a hurry and want to make some really good pancakes...grab a Duncan Hines Butter Cake Mix instead of Hungry Jack Wheat Blends Pancake Mix, add necessary ingredients and have a flattened round mini cake for breakfast. This was not on the menu on purpose but turned out to be a delicious mistake.

Blankets & Burp Cloths

So even though Spring is here and I feel like I spend every waking hour outside in the garden packing the dirt farther ad farther under my fingernails...somehow I manage to find time for sewing.

Ada is so happy that Madi can finally "play" with her. I love watching them together. Now we have our share of "tug of war" but it's so fun to watch them both develop individualy and as sisters. I am truly blessed.

Madi is ONE!

Our little Madi "Moo Moo" is ONE! I loved planning this party. It was a theme I had never seen before but I loved it. I think yellow and red look so good together. No one ever told me that having children will produce and large necessity for creativity, but this kind of stuff is therapeutic for me in a way.

This is what happens when your best friend marries a photographer. I wish they lived closer and we could book our yearly famliy pictures with Scott Clouse!! :)

Family Pictures

So this is how it's done. I love the real moments of picture taking, the behind the scenes stuff. I'm always so excited to get our family pictures done every year. I think it takes me three months to coordinate clothes and there are only four of us!

"Ada's 2nd Birthday"

So as I planned for Ada's 2nd birthday all I had in my was 90 degree weather not a crazy rain storm coming to wash all of my hard made decorations away. But the food was still good and friends and family were there to celebrate, which makes the party a party! It sad that Ada is now 2 and 1/2 as we say and I'm just now sharing the moments with the blog. I have a lot of catching up to do.

Family Portrait

Where is your family photographer when you need her?! So realizing we had no family pictures since Madi was born, I had to recruit someone else to take a picture of our family. (My Mom) How do photographers make it look so easy to capture the personality and character of each family member, in one picture, and make it a good picture. Well, this was my lame attempt, at least I tried!

Madi and Mommy

So when you are the one behind the camera all the time it's seemingly impossible to appear in the pictures. Last week I came to the very sad realization that I didn't have any pictures of just me and Madi or even me, Madi and Ada. So Jim has become my fill in camera man. When I see time has gone by and I am been out of the pictures for too long, he has agreed to step in and take some pictures. What a great husband.
