Happy 4th birthday, Andrew!


We celebrated Andrew’s fourth birthday party this past weekend. He invited his entire class from school as well as his friends from our small group at church. There were fifteen children hoopin’ and hollerin’ everywhere! Andrew’s only special request was to have a hockey cake, so I asked my friend, Tera, to make it for him. Tera even went as far as to make it extra special by putting the local minor league hockey team mascot on the center of the “ice” rink. Andrew loved it!

Mitch and I gave Andrew something he’s been asking for FOREVER….a pair of inline skates. I was amazed at how well he skated the first time he put them on. He didn’t want any help!

My friend, Davina


Davina has only been in Columbus for a short time. Soon, she and her family will be moving to Oregon for a new minstry position. I am so thankful the Lord brought her into my life….my only regret is that we didn’t get to spend as much time together as I would have liked. We always chit chat about crafty things, new business ideas, or our latest earnings on consignment or garage sales, etc. Our conversation is sweet and our children play well together. Davina, I will surely miss you when you and Kyle pack up and move to the other side of the country!

Talented Tasha


In my earlier post, I mentioned that I got to spend some time on Wednesday with my sweet friend, Tasha. We always take pictures of our kids when we’re together and this visit was no exception. Here are her three girls with my three kiddos.

Also, as a baby gift, Tasha MADE Abigail this easter basket….looks a lot like Pottery Barn, eh? Yeah, she’s pretty talented, that Tasha. It will work great as a diaper bag throughout the spring season. She’s always taking orders if you’re interested!

Recycle your old cell phone(s)


Mitch and I get an upgrade on our cell phones every two years (it’s in our contract). We’ve had our old phones in a box under our bed for quite some time, meaning to take them to Staples and drop them in the recycling box. Yesterday, I heard that there’s a need for old cell phones in Iraq for soldiers to use to call home and speak to their family. I’m mailing ours off today in a postage paid envelope.
