Dallas My hero!

The many sides of Dallas!
Holding an angora bunny (notice his light saber still in sight)
my Caring Defender
Here he has gotten them all ( minus Dag too small to hold a hammer) together to build a "porch"! I just love to see a good Leader in the making.

Our Joker he is always good for a laugh!!! and a smile :)

He also loves to learn and think about almost anything.

And this, the part that still needs love and constant patience.
My challenging "fence sitter". I am very excited to see the strong and determined man he will become.
I pray daily that God will guide us as his parents to show him to look to God in all he does.
God Bless you Dallas!

My little Trace ....

This is not what I was planning on writing about today, but it is what I've been thinking about allot. So here it is... My resolutions ( I know it's May!)
Over the next 6 months:
things I would like to stop buying from a mainstream store:
disposable diapers/ wipes
ice cream
Over the next year (maybe 2)
things to stop buying from mainstream stores:
any dairy products
bread making supplies
Things I want to and need to learn to help this happen:
perfect my bread making and buy a grain mill
caring for chickens :)
growing what we can
eating with the seasons ( don't eat what's not in season, meat and other things)
Well my list could go on and will continue I'm sure but life outside my computer still goes on... :)
5 happy children await me in their freshly filled sand box. their laughter is calling me.
All my resolutions are for those 5 shining happy faces, some resolutions may change and grow over time but the reasons are still the same. I want to teach what ever I can to my little ones and show how to enjoy every minute of life that God has for them. Thank you God for my precious family!

Another fun and messy rainy day!

The best part of a rainy day with little ones!

This is the recipe for the paint:

1/4 cup dry milk
1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding ( obviously we only had chocolate)
2/3 cup water
2 tbsp peanut butter

mix it all together (let the kids help :) that's most of the fun)

we used it on wax paper, use what ever you like.

Add a kid or two or five and enjoy! :)

Finally ...

Ta Da flying Baby!!!
This next pic is a wool felted ball I made for Dag the other day. It started out from a mistake.
Some of the best things start out that way, don't they!
It started with a beautifull skein of baby blue mohair/wool blend getting in with a load of wash :(.
While taking the clothes out to go in the dryer there it was. There was no undoing it. So I stop for a minute to think... it was already round... why not make a ball with it. So I used a rattle recycled from an old toy :) stuffed it in the center stuffed it in the toe of a clean sock(to help keep it round), threw it in the dryer with everything else. After that I thought I would make it look nicer by needle felting some agua and red felting wool that I had to the outside.
I am pleased with it and he enjoys rolling it around. :)


This is our two oldest boys with a few of there friends this same time last year in Texas.
My how time does fly.

My little lady playing house. This brings me so much joy...
She is enjoying the little rug I'd been working on hand sewing for her over the last few weeks. It's Finally done!!!This rug is the inspiration of another blogger
