    19 1/2 Weeks! 3rd Pregnancy Update

    It’s hard to believe, but I’m only two short days away from 20 weeks (the half way mark).  Time is certainly flying by with this pregnancy.  With my first son, I impatiently counted the days. With my second son, I was impatiently counting the weeks and reading every thing baby related that I could get my hands on.  (My first two sons are ten years apart, so my second pregnancy was like starting all over again.)  But with the hustle and bustle of taking care of two kids, I find myself losing track.  It has been difficult to slow down and take it all in, too.  On one hand, it…

    Fall Decor

    I was looking for a cheap fall decor project I could do for about $2. So I bought this glass holder for .97 cents at Wal-Mart and $1.88 for the scented candle, also from Wal-Mart.   The little acorns were gathered by my wonderful, PATIENT son, Nathan.  He tediously went into the yard and picked them up from the ground, One.

What can I say except that he LOVES his Mama! ;0)  He makes me happy : ) **Side Note** I had originally planned to use my dead corn stalks  from my garden that couldn’t survive through our horrible summer this year.   I was going to hot glue them…
