Praying for Bennett

I don't know if you know Adrienne and Jim's blog Our Journey of Love, but if you aren't, you need to check out their story! They are a sweet couple who have dreamed of having a baby of their own. They adopted their son Owen from Russia, then a little girl from Korea(I believe), and then a domestic adoption recently and then... she found out that she was pregnant. They just had their sweet baby Bennett at 26 weeks and 5 days. So... after my brief synopsis.... here is the button so you can go and read more about this amazing family, and pray for their sweet teeny tiny little Bennett Isaac!

Hard at work… or so I thought!

Last weekend, Doug tells me that he and Grace are going to put up the new umbrella that my mom got us back at Christmas. So, I decided to of course, not  help, but grab my camera to see how that would go.

It started out pretty good… getting the hose to fill the base with.


Of course… Grace is the big helper.


Wait Grace… don’t point that at Daddy!


Ok… let’s put the mesh in the base area.


That’s it Grace…


She is such a good helper.


Taking a small break to Smile for mommy!


Wait… what’s this?


Oh… I see… not just a break to smile for the camera.


But… what are you shooting with the hose?


Hmm…. what could it be?


“Here she comes…”


Wait for it…


“There she is!!!!”




There she goes!!!!! LOL!


Anything for a giggle! LOL!


“Let’s try one more time, Daddy”

And… here is what started it all… our nice new umbrella!


Good Job!



So… we had a very boring 4th of July. We didn’t do anything… at. all. Ok, that is not exactly true… we saw fireworks from our back porch… and Grace played with Play-Doh. She made these little sculpture’s for us! :)

Show us your life - Show us what you make!

Ok, this is my first time playing along… but I thought that I would try this week because I am really into making these awesome Custom Clipboards! My best friend and I have just started, but we are thinking about working together and making a stockpile of them, and then maybe this fall going to a craft show and see if we can sell them. What do you think… would you buy one?

Here are the 2 that I have made… so far! :)

(of course… I didn’t make Terah’s, but you get the picture! :)
