Almost midnight

I haven't been on here very much, have I? I miss my blog, miss my readers and comments, miss catching up with all of you. I've been so busy between trying to keep the house clean, kids entertained, baby fed, getting outside into the gorgeous weather, filling orders from Etsy, listing reviews and giveaways on the other blog... that I just haven't been able to catch a moment to write over here about anything other than picture downloads galore.

Speaking of Etsy my shop is doing really good! I get at least one order a day, which is a nice change from every few days. I just redid all the pictures and have so much more to list (another thing on my never-ending To Do List). I have some new fonts I'm waiting on, too. Check out some new faves:

So here it is almost midnight and I'm getting something on this blog if it is the last thing I do, ha ha!

If you haven't checked out the giveaway blog lately please do. I just listed giveaways for a flat iron, jewelry from Fantasy Jewelry Box, a Baby Bond Nursing Cover and so so so much more.

On the home front we're all right as rain! School is about to end and then start right back up (Elaina's school is almost year-round). I need to get more school uniforms now that she is growing like a beanstalk and getting holes in her clothes. I guess hand-me-downs might not work.......... Abigail will be starting school next June; I cannot believe it! One more year and I'll have two of my girls going to school.

Summer plans include lazying around in the sun, going swimming at Anne's house, having picnics, going to the parks, hopefully getting a zoo membership, VBS and just some FUN! I don't know that we'll go on vacation but it seems we have plenty to do right here at home. If anyone has any fun summer activities we can do here at home send them my way! I think we're going to be getting some adirondack chairs for us adults and a swingset for the kids so we can spend more time out in the yard.

Oh and we're doing gardening! I have the garden beds ready (except for some pesky weeds that are coming up now) and we're hopefully getting the plants this next week.

I know what you mean about being busy! However you have much more on then I do, lol.

It's so funny how fast the kids grow up. But it's sad at the same time.

It's so strange to me that you guys are heading intop summer as we are heading into winter, I always forget lol.

It's lovely to read an update from you :)

I'm REALLY wanting a piece from your Etsy shop, but I'm spending WAY too much money on more necessary things right now...ugh.
A swing set and a sand box are great for occupying the kids. We finally put fresh sand in our box yesterday and Maggie had a blast. Ellie likes picking up the sand and gently putting it in the grass.

I totally understand about being busy! I think the warmer weather does that.

YAY for your garden!!! Can't wait to see pictures!

Love your jewelry!~ Glad the ETSY thing is working well for you.

Your girlies are going to LOVE the garden. And don't feel bad about not blogging...when you're trying to get in a garden, it's about next to impossible to find time to blog, too!
