My youngest son, Sam, is super thrilled. He really wanted a younger brother. However, my girls were really hoping for a girl. And even though Zoe looks terribly sad in this picture, she has warmed up to the idea and is excited for the baby to get here. I hear on almost a daily basis, "I can't wait to hold the baby."
#2: I've finally started writing again (you can read my writing blog here). I'm working on a fantasy middle grade novel (that I might just finish in about a hundred years), but haven't felt like going near it in the last couple months....lots going on, all that lovely morning sickness and also I was trudging through a great big writing muddle.
But this week things have looked up. I'm writing. I met with my critique group. And I'm feeling so much better. Of course....getting back to my writing also means less crafting. Although I can never stay away from the crafty stuff for too long before I'm itching to make something.
#3: I've recently discovered the blog Art Projects for Kids and I love it! She has so many fun ideas!
Like this one...
It's called The Big Face Painting Tutorial. I love it. And I can't wait to try some of her ideas with my wee artists.
#4: We are in the process of buying land. And I'm very very excited about it. We're hoping to build on it in the next 2-3 years. And now I love looking at all the pictures of homes and interior decorating people pin on Pinterest.
Here are some of my recent favorites...
|Pictures like this make me realize how much I love|
white interiors decorated with bright pops of color. Love it!

|Wha?! A rock wall leading to a common play space accessible|
from the other children's rooms?! That is the coolest.
(But I couldn't find the link for this picture.)
#5: I've been pinning loads of cute stuffies lately to this board. Like this cute little guy....
|Come on? Have you ever seen a cuter pig? I think not!|

I feel the need to sew something cute and cuddly coming on.
Have a super great weekend! And do something fun. That's an order. Yes, I'm talking to YOU! :)
