Exercise for the heart, body and soul

This is an amazing book that helps transform you from the inside out.  I was amazed at how much I truly wanted more prayer in my life along with more exercise.  After having two kids and becoming a Christian I did not know how to incorporate it all into my life.

This book gave me the blueprint to start praying more and exercising more.  I look forward to working with my church and my friends to give our heart, body and soul a good workout.

Plain Wisdom

This is an absolutely amazing book.  It is a must read for all mothers whether you are religous or not.  It provides incredible insight to the unknown world of the Amish and proves that deep down we are the same.  This book proves that we are more alike than we ever thought.

I loved reading this book and could not put it down.

So I took a chance and taught myself how to appliqué.  It turned out better than I anticipated but still had some rough spots.  My first born turned 3 last week and I wanted to make him a special shirt to wear on his birthday...

I bought a pack of plain t-shirts and went to it.  I used iron on letters for his name because I didn't think I was up to the challenge of sewing around them.  But I cut the number out of fabric and attached it with heat and bond... but it was starting to lift around the edges so I carefully sewed around the edges... and viola!

I have to say that I am proud of myself and can't wait to do more!

P is for Pajamas

I can't recall where I got the idea but I seem to remember looking at my son's pajama pants and thinking, "I could do that..."!

So I did.  There was a huge sale on flannel fabric and I jumped on it.  I bought 8 different kinds and one for myself.  Since I am not an experienced seamstress (not yet atleast) I bought onesies for the baby and Hanes white t-shirts for the big boy...

I made the first pair today... for the baby since they are smaller and I would waste less fabric if I messed up.  What do you think?

Remote Storage

Here is another Amy Butler fabric that you might be seeing a lot of.  I have seen these before in the store and have realized how important they really are.  My family and I have issues putting things back where they belong but we had one problem with the remotes to the TV and DVD players... the had no home.

So once again I grabbed my sewing machine, some extra fabric and my imagination and went for it.  Now they have a home...!

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.  This happens to be my favorite holiday... since it has nothing to do with presents.  The only thing that is required is that you sit and share a great dinner with your family.  So take this time to look around and be thankful for what you have.

This year I am thankful that my family is complete.  I have a wonderful husband and two incredible little boys.

Miss and Mister

Since I am the mother to boys I see it as my duty to raise gentlemen.  My two year old (well one week away from 3) is learning "Ladies First".  But in our house it is "Ladies and Babies First" since I have to carry his little brother with me.

My 2 year old is very well versed in what he needs to call adults.  I think it is too formal to call someone Mrs. So -and-So.  Instead he will call a woman Ms. First Name and a man Mr. First Name.  Many people are very impressed with his politeness and I simply reply... my job is to raise gentlemen.
