Baby Shower for Josh & Anna

Saturday night Dave and I hosted a baby shower for Josh and Anna. (No,we are not having a baby boy---Stick a blue balloon on your mailbox in this neighborhood, and all kinds of rumors get started!) Avery's due date is March 17th. Soon we will have a sixth March birthday to celebrate in our family. We had lots of fun, and once again got a lot of little jobs done around here that would not have been accomplished otherwise. I finally found the time to pull out my sewing machine, and turn my snow day into a sew day on Friday. I have been wanting to make cafe curtains for the breakfast room for months now, but have been too busy or too sick. Dave wasn't crazy about my idea. I don't think he fully understood what I meant by cafe curtains, but once I got them up, he approved. I bought the rings with clips on them, so I can make curtains and change them out seasonally. I'm already dreaming about some navy and white nautical fabric for summer, and orange for Auburn football/autumn. I love my new machine. I can't wait to make some outfits for Avery and Kyleigh. Hopefully it won't have to snow again for me to find the time!

Then Sings My Soul

Snow in Alabama!!

There is no doubt that nature is His greatest masterpiece.
Thank you God for giving us such a beautiful creation to enjoy.
How Great You Are!!

I have noticed a pattern. Every time Dave and I plan a party at our house, the weather becomes quite unusual. This time, however, no complaints at all!! I was so happy to have a snow day. My biggest excitement was to get a picture of our new house covered in the white stuff. I've been dreaming of doing that since before we started building. I didn't think it would happen so soon after moving in!!!

We woke up at 6:00 am on Friday morning to rain/sleet. I was SO DISAPPOINTED! I was just about to go back to sleep, when I look out the back windows and saw


I turned on the logs and enjoyed the view all morning.

Look at those big snowflakes!!

By afternoon, the snow had stopped, and everyone in the neighborhood was ready to

Dave rolled the snow up like carpet. He didn't know what he was going to do with it.

This might end up on our Christmas Card this year!!
I'm sooooo thrilled to have a photo like this!

John built an igloo.

Dave decided to turn his snow into a chair. Here's Tamara modeling on it.

He rolled up another and made an ottoman.

What a wonderful day! We are worn out, but trying to get things ready for a baby shower here tomorrow night for Josh and Anna. I didn't spend my whole day playing. I had a snow day/sew day too. I'll post pics of what I made and baby shower photos SOON!!
