Hands and Feet

I had to show off these precious little things. One of my clients does this- it is called casting. Her name is Heather Pope if anyone is interested. She did a great job.

It is amazing all of the details there are. I love the little dimples in his hands. He is definitely healthy!

It's about Time!!

Back in May, when we decided to buy our house, I ordered this table. It has a unique story on how I came across it, so here it is. Blake and I went into Ace Hardware in Rexburg and I saw that they had a craft corner, and this table was there. I asked the girl at the check out if there were other styles and stain colors to choose from. She told me, "Yes. We actually get our tables from a wholesaler in Pocatello. If you want to go to their website you can tell us what to order." So I thought, I will just buy it from the wholesaler. I contacted the lady and I saved $500!!

{The website, by the way, is countryhomeprimitives.com}

To make a long story short, I have had quite the run around and two and a half months later, I finally got my table! I am so excited!

Our previous table fits in the corner of our dining area- how sad!

{Blake and I could practically feed each other ACROSS the table} I think that now we will have to yell to each other to carry on a conversation :)

And this is an early birthday present from Blake- what a great husband! This rug is in front of my sink and the rug under the table matches it. I got them both at Shopko- 45% off!

Like Father, Like Son

I love this picture! It just goes to show that Preston is Blake's son. Preston also sleeps with his mouth wide open, drooling and all, just like his mommy.

Favorite Recipes

Since I have quit doing hair and started being a full time mom, I have set a goal to be a great homemaker. It is definetly in the making. Part of the goal is to have the laundry washed and folded, have a menu put together, keep the house clean, and the dishes done (I am not allowed to vaccum, that is among Blake's favorite things to do). So I am asking for help. I am in need of dinner ideas, or just fun things to make. So if you have any favorites post them on the comment board. Recipes that you can remember off of the top of your head is the best. Thanks!

Blessing Day

On Sunday we were able to bless Preston. It was a wonderful day. My family was able to come up and spend the weekend with us, and we had a big dinner with friends and family Sunday afternoon. It was fun to spend time with everyone. Blake gave a beautiful blessing to Preston. It was a great example of the type of dad that he is. I am so grateful for Preston and Blake. I am so blessed to have them in my life.
