New additions

I don't have too much to write, nor do I have much time, so this post will be photo heavy. Enjoy!

First, the latest and greatest addition to our home is this fancy princess bed for our Princess Lily, thanks to the wonderful Ikea (curtains by moi). I want one of these!

Pretending to sleep, pretty convincing, eh?

The other addition to our home is the Crayola artwork by our sweet baby Chloe:

Now our walls have been covered in a super-washable (we have already tested this out) lovely shade of green, but I am sure they won't stay pristine for long!

Other new additions are Chloe's top teeth, FINALLY!

Finally, I would like to leave you with a picture of young love: Chloe and Owen (possible future son-in-law). His big sister is Lily's best friend. This week, Ginny's (our daycare provider) husband is having open heart surgery so we are trading babysitting the kids. Get well soon, John!

Family Update

Kind of like the Christmas newsletter, but I can update regularly.

Most recently we got a visit from Lindsay and Turk with our new niece, Payten. What a sweetie! It was extremely cold and windy (read: Michigan in February) so we were in a lot, but it was really nice visiting with them.
"Chloe be gentle!" As if a 16 month old has any concept of that! I will say she did OK, but she did try to climb on top of Payten and poke her in the eyes more than once.

Lily also built a snowman the same weekend.
Coming up next weekend we will travel to Western Maryland for my grandmother's 85th birthday celebration. 7 hours in the car with a cranky toddler - can't wait for that.

Trying this thing out

Well, it seems everyone has a blog or myspace page and since I am too old and too married for myspace, so here I am. I am trying to "have it all" (whatever that means) as the title says, but many days I don't feel like I am too successful at it. This page is a place for rantings, sharing stories and photos and, hopefully, sharing ideas with those with similar interests, of which I have many (to include knitting, reading, scrapbooking, stamping, sewing, cooking).
