Better late than ever showing some pictures of Katelynn's nursrey. Here is her name on the wall above her crib. I found a font I liked on the computer, than had my dad cut out the letters.
If you look close I painted stitch work on the edges of each letter with the oppisite color that it is painted. When I got done...I was happy but not real happy they needed something else..so I raided my scarpbook stash and put some flowers together and hot glued them on the letters.
I love scrapbooking and wanted to incorperate it into Katelynn's room...so I bought a Scrapbook frame...and have been making different pages that I can change in and out.
A pudding Fruit pie....got this one from my Brother Brandon's girlfriend...Heather. Her's was a bit tastier...but I hope to make this again next spring and do a better job. But I have to say mine was still pretty good and it looked really pretty!
Peanut butter cup Cheesecake!
Plain Cheescake layer
Done and ready to eat!

For any of you "overthinkers" or "reader-inners" the above title does NOT mean what you might think it does!!!!
Just letting you know I am here and I plan to soon update this blog so much more! OCT 29 is a HUGE date for me. It marks the last day I will know as a working mom! (until further notice that is.)
I have so many organization projects, craft project and cooking I want to do! I am so excited. I have been visiting all over blog-land and have a thousand ideas running around my head.
But most of all I will get to spend uninterrupted time with my darling daughter! I am just TO EXCITED to put into words how I feel about that! Daddy is a bit jealous but he is happy and blessed that he has a job stable enough to support us to be able to take this HUGE step.
Pray for us that we will be wise in all of our decisions and that we will learn how to make up for the long hours "Daddy" works. We by no means will have a "Normal family" schedule. Any family of a UPS'er knows the long hours/ and unpredictable hours of a driver. But we will find what works for us...and find that special "Daddy time". Pray especially for Jonathan he struggles not getting to spend much quality evening time with her some nights. He is thrilled that I am going to stay home..but still feels he misses out. We make up for it on the weekend to our best. Thus being a bit stingy about our family time together. But trying to find a good balance.
So many feelings and emotions come over me...as I think about "MY NEW LIFE" I am astounded that God is actually blessing me with my Hugest prayer. (outside of finding a husband and becoming a mother) I truely feel unworthy. I have been blessed with a hard working husband and one that works hard to keep us in budget. (although we have much room to grow. But God will help us there!) And God allowing him to land the job at UPS is the best thing that could have happened. There is sacrifice in this job...but Jon and I have looked at other options and feel this is where God wants us at for now. I have to be honest...that in some ways I feel selfish and feel it's unfair that I get to be the one at home. Even though I know the women's place is usually to be in the home. Although not all Mother's have the choice to get that option no matter how much they want it. And that is why I have promised to try my hardest NOT to take it forgranted!
So in a few short days...READY OR NOT HERE I GO!!!! I am ready to make so many memories!
