Pins and Such

I loved an idea I saw in pinterest for stenciling a table.  When we moved here, we left our table and chairs behind.  A few weeks later, we  found this table and chairs on the side of the road for free!  Free means, I get to try a project.

 I am so happy with the finished product!  I did all the stenciling, and Rob did the staining and polyurethane.
 These crazy girls are getting so big.  For some reason they get all giddy when I put them in Brooke's crib to play and read.  I hope they don't figure out being contained is not so fun.

 We find endless entertainment with our bird feeder.  These birds were a little desperate on one or our last snow days.  
Have I mentioned that I love Colorado?  This place is unbelievably beautiful.  I am constantly amazed at God's creation.  We love this view from one of our favorite parks...only ten minutes away.  We are nearing one year since the move.  That is so hard to believe.  I am so grateful for God's direction and the place He has us.  There are many challenges, but it is sweet to be living our part in His story.

More Colorado, just us...

It has been almost 9 months since we arrived, but I am still amazed at how beautiful Colorado is.  Rob and I enjoyed our first get-away in a very long time at the beginning of February.  It was just one night, but even that does wonders for your marriage (even if you are suffering from first trimester sickies!).
 Our favorite stop was Pike's Peak.  It is one of the few mountains that is over 14,000 feet and that you can drive to the tippy-top.  It was fantastic.  The only thing I would change is adding a few guardrails.  

I sure do love this guy.  Life is quite an adventure, and I wouldn't want to experience it with anyone else!

Being Merry

I was so happy to discover enough "junk" in my sewing basket to make stockings for the girls!

These girlies are enjoying all the snow here in Colorado.  We are not in Virginia any more :)

Loving all the updates from friends...


No matter what goes on around us in our world, our joy remains.  We remember Jesus.
Well...not everyone looks merry in this picture, but I loved it anyways!  I hope your holidays were as joy-filled as ours.
