From Outside The Frame

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

It’s been awhile huh? I don’t spend much time on Pinterest and I read blogs pretty quickly these days so I don’t find as many cool links but that’s ok!   Here’s what I have sitting around to share with you. Interesting facts about the winter Laura wrote about in The Long Winter. Arm knitting […]

The Keeper Of The Prison

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

Yesterday, in Sunday School, we watched a video series. I’ve really enjoyed it and learned a lot. I enjoyed the speaker and how he related to us.

Toddler Food Ideas

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

  I’m no toddler feeding expert, but I read when James was a baby that children pick up their picky habits between year 1 and 2. So with James, I worked very hard to help him learn to eat all kinds of good food when he was 1. I’m doing the same with Nathan. This […]

18 months

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

  I often get a huge smile and thank God for letting us have this baby. It’s hard to believe he’s been here for 18 months already. 18 months of smiles, snuggles, and sheer joy! Thank you, God. He’s a very precious blessing to all of us. (big boy is too!!)
