Just wanted to give everyone a quick update and let you know, once again,
just how much our little family appreciates all of your prayers!
between meltdowns and messes I would sneak outside and snap some random shots!
I'm calling this one, "Spring Rain."
I attempted to photograph it after placing Nolan in the grass 30 feet away.
The baby bird got scared and called for its Mommy.
The mother bird dive-bombed the first thing it saw... poor little Nolan.
I dropped my camera in the wet grass and took off after him.
He was unphased; just smiling, waving his arms in the air trying to catch it.
It sure wasn't funny at the time, but it has been a funny story to share with his grandparents.
Do you see the footprint water droplets?
It's Nolan's signature mark I used to sign cards with for him.
A close up of our neighbor's bush - ours doesn't look as good!
All of the rain is doing our grass seed some good :)
My. New. Favorite. Drink.
Actual text: These things taste better than macaroni and cheese.
This is HUGE: I remind you my room was wallpapered in mac and cheese box fronts as a teenager;
I couldn't get enough of it until I became pregnant with Nolan.
Rob and I worked on a few DIY projects today after I
mustered up the strength to copy other people's cool ideas.
The kids helped too, can't you tell?
Any guesses what we made?
Don't worry - I won't make you wonder long; I hope to have the tutorial up tomorrow!
It only cost $2.79 - so it is very affordable.
Speaking of money, I set a personal goal of only spending $285 a month on groceries.
I tallied everything up; we've spent $265.65!
(that includes, diapers, wipes, formula, groceries, toiletries, paper products...
and even a dozen roses for a friend's Birthday)
Looking for ways to save some money?
Well I have GREAT news; I'm going to be teaching a FREE coupon class next month!
