::Happy Homemaker Monday::

From Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

As I look outside my window:::

Melting snow, lots of puddles, and 50 degrees… Awesome!

Right now I am:::

Working on my MOPS newsletter while Jackson plays and Hailey is at school

Thinking and pondering:::

Missing Kyle, thankful for nice weather, feeling refreshed.

On my bedside table::

Hair binders, chap stick, devotional

On my TV tonight:::

Not sure! I have been watching Private Practice on Netflix

Listening to:::

The sounds outside since I have all the windows open


On the menu for this week:::

Chicken quesadillas, spaghetti, soup, sausage & noodles, Chicken ala king, and maybe one night of eating out

On my to do list:::


Etsy order

MOPS newsletter

Organize lots of things

Plans for this week:::

MOPS meeting and enjoy the weather!

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

Slouchy hat, knitted pig for Hailey, granny square blanket, and I may start a knitted elephant for Jackson

My simple pleasure:::

Not wearing a jacket!

Lesson learned the past week::

Give my worries and fears to God

Looking around the house:::

Toys, MOPS papers on the table, a sleeping pup, and Jackson getting into a cabinet that he shouldn’t be in

Wacky Clothes Day

This week Hailey's class is learning about Dr. Seuss. Everyday they do something fun like Wacky Clothes Day! Here's what hailey wore.

I just love her Ninja Turtles shirt :)

On Friday they all get to wear fun hats. I'm sure I can find a hat or two around here. Possibly crocheted... Duh

That's all for now!

::Happy Homemaker Monday::

From Diary of a Stay at Home Mom

As I look outside my window:::

The sun is shining and you can tell it isn’t as cold, which is so nice! Some of the snow is even melting

Right now I am:::

Trying to get my thoughts straight. I have so many things I want to do right now and I don’t know where to begin!

Thinking and pondering:::

Just my day to day life and balancing things. I have some projects I want to do but I also want to take care of the kiddos.

On my bedside table::

Bible, devotional, hair binders and chap stick

On my TV tonight:::

I’m not quite sure actually! I always forget what’s on Mondays

Listening to:::

The dishwasher and that’s it! Hailey’s at school and Jackson is napping

On the menu for this week:::

Left over turkey dinner, lasagna roll ups, soup, sausage and noodles, and chicken

On my to do list:::

Organize baby stuff and things to go to Goodwill


Clean kitchen


Thank you’s

Blog posts

Plans for this week:::

Enjoy our time with Kyle when we can, school, gymnastics, MOPS, and my birthday

What I am sewing, crocheting, knitting or creating:::

Granny square blanket, Hailey’s knitted piggy, hats, and scarves

My simple pleasure:::

Coffee and a quiet house

Lesson learned the past week::

Prayer and patience is so important as you go through your day. I ask a lot of forgiveness and am thankful for God’s grace and forgiveness.

Looking around the house:::

Toys in the living room, a lot of yarn, sunshine coming in, and Hailey’s puzzles on the table.


From the camera:::

Hailey is 5 already! How did this happen?

Some friend’s and their families

My brother (he was not on the helicopter but knew a couple of the guys) and the families of the men who passed away in a helicopter crash. You can read about it here.

Bible verse, Devotional:::

“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Romans 12:12

December Cell Phone Pictures

December was a busy and fun month! Here is what I caught on my phone

I really like my Christmas garland my mom made me. It went perfect on our shelf over the couch


Hailey did most of the ornament hanging on our tree. It was really cute!


Every year Hailey loves playing with the Christmas boxes. She did some major stacking after we decorated


My dad brought some Christmas things back from our cabin. I was so excited when I found our star my mom and I made when I was little. I love it on our tree! (please ignore that it’s crooked)


Jackson started feeding himself his bottles, which was nice but I also missed cuddling with him!

Then he gets up and becomes a mad man


Hailey showing off her new slippers from grandma and papa


Taken by Hailey


I got to bring my favorite mug into the rotation


Doing a puzzle together, kind of


So cold!


I love this picture. Hailey got hooked on Chopped while she was at my moms house. Notice Jackson playing with Hailey’s hair





Jackson started using this baby chair instead of his big high chair. I think he likes it!


Orders, orders, orders


This came home with Hailey one day and I thought it was so cute! J.J. is her best friend at school. They also have gymnastics together!


After Hailey’s Christmas program, we treated her to her first hot chocolate from Starbucks

Hailey and daddy had a slumber party in the basement.


Loving our Advent Calendar from Naptime Diaries


I felt like Santa with this big red bag full of goodies to mail out!


These two got sucked into Cinderella. I use to LOVE this movie when I was little!


Working on his Sippy cup skills
