The Mommy

about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

We have finally finished the extensive art project that we started last week.

I did most of the bead-rolling, Big Daddy drilled the holes, the girls painted and I put the beads on strings and covered them in a clear sealant. It took several days for the beads to dry and then several days for Big Daddy to drill the holes. If I didn't have children that insist on being fed, changed, played with and entertained it would have taken a lot less time!

I'll try to post pictures of our necklaces next week, but first I have to complete mine! I did a turquoise and chocolate brown combo that I think is really cute. I'll be wearing it to Church on Sunday with a denim dress, so we'll see how it looks.

I'm getting ready to make a menu plan for next week and a grocery list for tonight. Our Week of Wonder (VBS) starts on Sunday, so I'll be busy in the evenings. I'll be taking Ellie to Nana and Pawpaw's and Maggie & I will go to Church for WOW. Big Daddy will be picking Ellie up and putting her to bed each night. He has never put Ellie to bed, so I'm a little worried. Of course, all I do is carry her to her room and lay her in the bed and then she grabs her sister's old receiving blanket and goes right to sleep. I can only hope that things go okay without me.

Happy Friday!
