Fresh Spring & Flying Dreams

"Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness " - f.w. tomkins

We had such a fun filled spring break. It went so fast, but it was truly treasured while it lasted! Here are the children on their new skates. Lots of bruises and scrapes did not deter these two from the adventure.

I have always admired the Lamb cakes of others. I grew up with the lamb cake my mom used to make. Yes, we liked to chop it's ears & butt off and thought it was funny to decapitate it...but that is part of the fond memories that go along with such a special baked good. So, the kids and Aunt Mary and I tried our hand at our first official lamb...not to shabby my friends, not too shabby at all.

We were blessed with such beautiful weather on Easter day. Luckily we left carrrots out for the bunny and he came. Although he left some nusisance type grass all over the joint, he was so smart he left the kids some kites...and I don't think it could have been more perfect kite flying weather! Most of the day was spent wrestling and dancing in the wind for high flights. Lots of candy was consumed and hey, that's o.k....that's why the bunny left it right? Dinner was a super menu of HaM, Asparagus (my favorite), perogies, sweet potatoes, scalloped potatoes, rolls...

This is a custom order request that I recieved from a customer of mine for a special "dream" journal. It will actually be used at her daughter's birthday party, as a guest sign in/message book. I was thrilled with how it turned out, I hope she will be too! As far as my etsy store and other projects, they have all been on hold for a bit now and probably will be until I am settled in with the new kid. I know, it will all be waiting for me when I am ready for it. :) Maybe I will even try to catch up with some of my own scrapbooking as well someday!

BABY News: The new info of the moment is that we have learned the baby is in long breech position and the chances of it turning around at this point is very slim. My dr. has told me to get used to the idea of and prepare for a c-section. At first this totally threw me, I did not expect this at all. wow. seriously...but, as I have shared my news....I have gotten such wonderful support and stories from friends and family and I feel so much better about it then first hearing the news. I know I am in good hands and that all will be well in the end. Tomorrow I have my next appointment...I believe that I will be scheduling my c-section tomorrow as well. So, as soon as I get a date, I will update. Please keep us in your prayers. ((also I have been getting "false" contractions for the last several days...which has been weird and uncomfortable (somewhat painful).

I don't remember if I mentioned that we are now the proud owners of 1000 BEES. Noah is learning the beekeeper ropes and the rest of us are staying far away from the hives. Some people buy honey... but yippee, we get to produce our own. GARDEN: everytime I look outside, we seem to have less and less backyard grass and more plowed garden dirt....the plot just seems to be expanding...more and more. I wonder if I should hide the rotatiler before it's too late. I think potatoes and peas are planted...not sure what else yet.

The siding is all ripped off the house and the prep work has begun for the new. some more windows got installed today and a new front door...every day there are a few more changes...

It's now thundering... I love spring Storms! Tonight for dinner is leftover HaM. Tonight is preparing for the return to school tomorrow. :) I am actually ready for bed, but we have several hours and tasks ahead before that lovely moment arrives.
