a little bit of sunshine!

So the past few days here have been absolutely gorgeous (mid 40's) so we took advantage and went outside even though it was still a little chilly:) The kids have been anxiously waiting to ride on their tractor so that was what they did the majority of the time. Zander actually sat patiently as Tru was his driver, for those of you who have little boys, this was a big achievement for him! Tru also inspected her tree how and realized that some "tree peckers" as she calls them damaged her home and she thinks that Daddy should build her a new one:) Here are a few photos of our playtime.. I am definitely NOT a professional photographer, BUT with the help of TheCoffeeShop, I have been getting slightly better! Take a look at their site for some great tutorials and photoshop freebies! I am currently doing a giveaway on facebook that ends tonight, so take a look at my page and enter , here is my link

My very first blog post!

I want to start by welcoming you all to My Blog! I have been anxiously awaiting its completion and now it is virtually done! I do have a few more tweaks and modifications I am going to make and would LOVE your input on anything you think I need to make thing run more smoothly or be more helpful to you!

My next challenge is to get my Etsy Shop up and running, I do have it created but am working on all the details. For now feel free to shoot me and email to and check out my Facebook page too! I am currently about two weeks out on orders, I had a rush of them over the past few weeks, so please bare with me while I get caught up!

I am also working on a special promotion to celebrate my new blog, so keep a close eye out to new postings!!!! Here are a few beanies that I've created in the past few days...I'm so thankful for my wonderful models:)
