The past few years have been a little rough and somewhere in there I lost touch with that part of myself. Too much time was spent worrying about Jameson and making sure he would be okay. And not to mention five pregnancies, doctor visit after doctor visit, and of course all the time spent raising funds for prosthetics. But now things have calmed down and we are so blessed to have two beautiful healthy children, a new house and I am proud to say that Jameson is thriving and doing amazing!
With our new-found down time and a bigger home I can get back to doing healthy activities with my family. Some of those activities involve arts and crafts and ” do it yourself” projects! With a Bachelors’s Degree in Design, I like to think of myself as a creative person and I could not be more excited for all the possibilities!
My boys are still a little bit young for most of the projects I have in mind, but I love the thought of one day being able to create something together.
With that being said:
With Halloween just around the corner, I decided to take all the pickle jars (about eight of them) that I saved this last year (I was pregnant ok) and turn them into colorful jack o’lanterns or rather “jar” o’ lanterns!
On April 12th 2012, we were extremely blessed to welcome a beautiful baby boy into our lives!💕I can not believe that was two years ago.
We celebrated our special little guy’s day with family and friends playing in the church gym, enjoying snacks, cake (homemade by me, first attempt at a rainbow cake too) and each others company. It was a wonderful Saturday afternoon and an awesome Second Birthday Party for Jameson, he is very loved!
We have had the most beautiful May weather! This week we took full advantage of a gorgeous sunny day and went out in our boat for a fantastic time on the lake. Jameson is new to boating so we were not quite sure how he was going to react. This was his first time so I was a little nervous that he might freak out but he never did. It appeared to me that he had fun, if only the kid could talk I would know for sure! First boating day was a success.
