Summer Baby Showers

Yes, plural! I was lucky enough to be invited to 2 baby showers this summer… one with the gender known, the other not. Shandai and Ravyn were celebrating their upcoming baby at Ravyn’s parent’s house. A new cousin for my 5! They are pumped, mainly Trinity and Echo. But, a new family member is always cause for excitement. IMG_20170617_174434_958

I made sure to make baby something special. Though MANY of my fair pieces were also slated to go to baby. IMG_20170617_174534_475

The other shower we were invited to was also a first baby… baby girl! Of course, as I get closer to current you will see pictures of the little darling. Darcy hosted, so of course we came early to help (it was a last minute venue move). The guys made themselves scarce until it ended and the kids had a blast outside. 20170603_144344

As with my new unknown darling, I made baby girl a little something something as well. Both sets of gifts were well received which warms this crafter’s heart. 20170603_130554

Anyway – keep an eye peeled for the baby pics later. Darcy has been very sweet about sharing her time with Sophia’s baby with me.

They were just too cute together. Had to share BOTH pictures. I really love the whole Novak family, but Anthony has a special place in my heart.

Weekend for the Win

June 8-9

Weekends count with Ken’s new 5 day schedule, and we are working hard to make them count. Sadly the weather did not work exactly according to the original schedule.

I did forget to mention that on Friday we had to take the money Gammie had sent us treat treat the kids, and with no slurpees in sight… we went with Icees! Thank you so much for 5 happy kids!!

It is definitely garage sale season in our neighbourhood. So we spent a little more time hunting for some gems… Saturday was our day.

Sunday was supposed to be a picnic at one of the many many lakes here in Minnesota. Sadly Sunday was the day that the rain decided to pour down. So instead of the picnic at a park we packed up and drove into the city and had an IKEA visit. MEATBALL STORE!101_2404

We wandered, we checked things out, we planned for the future and all with Bree, Lily and Scott. Our Lily Bean is growing and growing and growing… of course I had to make Ken hold her…

Lunch with friends at our favourite store is a good compromise to a rainy day. Scott mentioned to Bree after that he had a great time talking with the twins. It makes me so proud to know they can carry their side of a conversation with an adult they are just really getting to know without my help or intervention.101_2410101_2414That got us home in time to spend some quality time with the cousins. THEY are done school for the summer so longer visits on different days are starting up. This time they were home over Sunday night into Monday.
