What's been going on.

I feel like I say this often, but really,"Where has the time gone?" I turn around and its been a month since I last posted on the old blog. Evelyn is walking, Max is turning 5 next week, I have tulips coming up, and Stephen & I both had birthdays. Spring break plans, Easter plans, June beach vacation are already in the works. My brain is stuck back in January. Happy New years! Life does. not. stop. Not even for one millisecond. It keeps going whether we like it or not. Thank goodness we serve a God we can "rest" in & give our anxietys to. In the busyness of our lives its important to give ourselves some quiet moments. Alone. No persons, gadgets or electronics allowed. Just you, God, & your Bible. Today I encourage you to take that time for yourself. If you have young ones, treasure each moment you have with them because you can't go back and redo those moments.

I took all four children by myself to the skating rink recently. (It was a Sun. afternoon so Stephen was at the shop) Evelyn loved the surprisingly nice & clean indoor playground.
This was Max's first time skating. He was super excited. It was hilarious. He actually did pretty well though. He didn't cry or complain at all if he fell. Just got right back up & kept on going.

Big brothers helped him alot too. William & Max. Aren't they cute?
We found a home for this sweet little kitten. He just showed up at our house one day. He was very friendly & boy could he purr. Wish we could have kept him but Stephen's allergies..

With this mild weather, Evelyn & I have been enjoying walks thru our country neighborhood. Check out those wispy clouds-they made think of feathers.
I just adore
this old school house nearby.

Me & my babies at my "pajama" birthday party. :)
And I'll end with a before & after of a cute "gossip bench" that I just refinished & recovered.

After! Sunny yellow paint w/distressed areas that expose a light blue underneath. (hard to see distressed areas in photo)
