sara turned two

it is hard to believe, but my sweet little girl turned two. and with turning another year old has come countless requests to watch "cind-ray" (Cinderella) and play in her "krutchen" and many emotional break downs (for both us- remember pregnancy hormones going on in this body!)

here are a few pictures from the party...

the sweet birthday girl... since her party, she has asked ryan to sing "happy birthday" as part of the bedtime routine... think she loved being celebrated!

This sweet gift was delivered right during the party by the mail man... perfect timing. my talented friend Kath made it. you should go check out her stuff... wiggles and giggles
it's too cute! thanks kath!

She has spent endless hours cooking her babies food at her new kitchen. Thanks Gigi!

not sure why the pictures are so grainy... sorry
is anyone interested in buying any pink birthday decorations?

i'm here

it has been awhile, huh? I have wanted to and thought about it often, but when it can down to it, i never got around to writing a new post. but here i am.... ready to get back into the world of blogging, ready to share about my sweet family and ready to show you what i have been sewing.

a lot has happened in the months i have "been away" ... so here it goes... it won't be too long, i promise...

my sweet daddy passed away on April 9th, after battling cancer for several months. it was a difficult time but i know he was ready to rest.

during that time we found out we were expecting! it was exciting and bittersweet all at the same time. we have recently found out that it is a boy and due November 6th.

my sweet sister-in-law gave birth to the cutest little boy, Samuel Joseph, in February. and Sara and I have had the pleasure of hanging out with him three days a week. it has been such great practice for all of us!

Sara turned two! can't believe it! we had a small celebration with bubbles and burgers.

And Ryan started his last year of law school last week!

So a lot has been going on.
We enjoyed the summer... sad to see it go. but i am ready to start this new season of baby preparation and new projects.

sorry for taking forever to post and update this space... but i'm back and ready to share some pictures... so stick around.
