A bunch of photos- playin catch up!

A few photos  that needed to be shown, but I still don't have the energy to write a whole post about.

We buried my grandfather yesterday, then Tim and I went to Raleigh, NC to watch my opera singing mom perform in Faust. Love that Tim enjoyed his first opera performance, even though it was 3 hours long and completely in French! Can't wait to see her in Carmen this fall!

A snapshot from our hallway- the wreath on the right is a creation by Anna of Blissful Whimsy.

On her blog is a better photo of our beautiful wreath! I went to our local India Market (the first Friday of every month) specifically to try to snag this wreath. I also have a pair of her stunning earrings and will be featuring a set of them on my blog as one of my giveaways once we hit 50 followers!

Jackson decided to dress himself AND color on himself with fabric markers.
Yay for 2yr olds!

My husband, Tim (bottom), and my little brother, Daniel (top), trying to wrestle our new fridge up the front steps. To get it through the front door, we had to remove the storm door AND the big wooden door. Even then, we were concerned.

We got this gorgeous stainless steel fridge from a scratch and dent appliance store for less than 1/3 of the original cost- and it only had one teeny dent in a place that isn't even visible to the naked eye. What luck!

A handmade toy for Baby Finn that I found at consignment. It's arms and legs are made with hand sewn yo-yos. I loved the concept!

A preciously loved wool sleep sack for Finn, bought from another mom! Can't wait to put him in these!

Wipes that I made for a friend! They're 8"x8", some are appliqued, and all in all there were almost 4 dozen of them. Needless to say, my sewing machine is getting a well-deserved break from sewing for a while :)

My 22 week belly shot. I LOVE the pants I'm wearing. They're men's XL sweats that I got at a yard sale when I was pregnant with Keelin- I've worn them through all 3 of my pregnancies as the best sleep pants in the universe! Can't even be ashamed of something that comfortable!

I'ms so sorry to hear about your grandfather :o( Hope you're getting through it ok.
What a great deal on that fridge. Your little fella is so adorable and I love the gift you got for your newest family member. Can't get enough fabric yo-yos :o)
It makes me smile so much to see someone using one of my wreaths. Definitely looking forward to this Friday.

ps you know Dana?

My grandfather isn't suffering anymore, and knowing that is what keeps the grief closer to relief- as sad as that is.

The fridge was an incredible deal. Not sure how I feel about the freezer drawer on the bottom yet, considering the kiddos think it's a free for all! haha :)And I do love the baby's handmade goodies- I hope he enjoys them half as much as his mommy does!

The wreath is beautiful and we are so happy with it! Can't wait to see what you bring on Friday! AND I can't wait to see Dana there, too! Proud of you ladies :)

Dana and I grew up right down the road from each other, went to school and church together! My "Great Cloth Diaper Change" post has pictures of her and Leeland- we rode together to the event! :)

So sorry to hear about your grandpa, but can also relate to being glad he's not suffering anymore, I felt that way when my grandma passed.

I love all the fun goings on, definitely jealous of the sleep sack! I need to find some of those!

Kory, I posted a want-ad on Diaperswappers and a lady was wanting to sell the blue set- I got it for $15!

I also found the lady that made my custom that way, as well, but that was a bit more $. I hear they're great, though!!
