Asked for a smile and this is what I got!

They love to sleep by each other!   

After all this we had a great week, Reed still loves school and I love the time with Ryder!!!  I am still working on inventory for the shop. Everyone tells me to make sure I have a lot of inventory for people to look at so. . . well I am working on it!!!

New Adventures Coming SOON!

Before I go into the new adventure, here is what we have been up to this year.  Well like most of us we have had a super busy year. We bought our first house!!! Yeah for upgrading from 800sq feet to 2400sq feet! Here is a link to before and after photos!

 We have also been doing tons of outside projects. We cut down 75 trees to make room for our  fruit orchard, the a chicken hotel we built and a garden! Oh and all 7 acres there is only ONE water spigot! CRAZY!!! So Ian trenched 500 feet to install water lines to 5 more spigots!!! Not to mention now we are working on fencing all 7 acres. Want to see before during and after.

 My son Ryder turned ONE! We had a Monsters Inc Birthday and pulled out all the stops with handmade decorations and homemade cakes, yes cakes I made one (my first) and his grandma (master cake-maker) made one!  

My other son Reed turned THREE and we had a CRAZY Toy Story Birthday!

 We went on vacation to Palm Springs!!! It was so hot, 117 degrees on average! CRAZY! However the pool felt so good!!!! lol Click Here to see more fun photos from our trip!!!

So as you  can see we had a pretty busy summer!!! Well now that Reed has started preschool  and Ryder will have some mommy time for a few hours a day, I hope things will start to get back to normal!  

Now, I am starting a new adventure and am really nervous because I don't know how it is going to turn out. With that being said, I am going to open an Etsy store and have a few different things in there. I am an extreme tomboy and love to garden and be outside so these items will reflect that and are my way of feeling girly even though I am gardening, landscaping, and playing with my boys all day long. Here is a preview of what is coming soon. Check back for the Grand Opening, complete with discounts and giveaways!!!!!!

Aprons and Totes, Coming Soon!
