Abby's Thrift Store Dress

Abby is her mama's daughter. She likes to wear dresses and mismatched socks. She also likes to shop at thrift stores so she may have lots of dresses! Abby's hair bow is from Grandma and was sent in a package by Aunt Colleen. Kiddos are always excited when a box arrives from Grandma and Aunt Colleen!

One More Hutch

This hutch was also purchased on Craig's List. Matt and Amie cleaned it for me. Now I have my own space in the school room and kiddos have more room on the table for their puzzle. The hutch has quaint rustic latches and I think it is lovely. Two hutches are enough though, so I've stopped looking. The two we have are great finds.

Younger kiddos went on a special outing with daddy.

Latest Find

This lovely hutch is our latest Craig's List find. It is solid cherry and was made by Kroehler in 1960. I am thankful we found it for such a low price. It is also a blessing to have a place to display china pieces from two of my great grandmothers.

Wisdom from Churchill

"We rest with assurance upon the impregnable rock of the Holy Scripture."

"Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never--in nothing, great or small, large or petty--never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense."
~Winston Churchill

This little boy likes to eat! 
So far Isaac has had pumpkin, avocado, sweet potato, beets, spinach, pea and pear.  He also gets a healthy dose of coconut oil or coconut manna everyday.
The high chair is a Keekaroo and ordered through Amazon.  It converts to a chair.  I'm thankful we were able to spend more now and purchase something we will still be able to use after the baby stage.
