Skating Pictures

Miranda has a lil friend Celia that she skates with. They were the only two in their level. Miranda was excited to share the podium with her and Celia was good about it too. 

Its tough to get Gold when there are only two of you. 

Gold and Silver

Ice Skating Competition Spring 2011

Lil skater girl. She did Great for her competition. She was asking for more events and wanted to keep skating when it was all over. She got Gold for the music program and a silver for the elements. Im just happy she had a good time and wants to keep at it. especially since we just got her some very expensive "real" ice skaters skates.

Bonjour! Ava Hat

I have been working on my first try on following a crochet pattern. After one huge failure. (bad pattern) and taking apart my first hat (count the stitches it makes a difference). Miranda put on her new pink sparkly hat and the first thing out of her mouth is "bonjour" and then some fake french jibberish after. She wore it to school and was still in France. I wonder if she will still be french when she comes home.
I am now working on the rose to adorn the hat with. I may even attatch it to a hair clip so she (or I) could wear it in her hair or on the hat.

What are you thankful for?

Days of beautiful spring weather with snow days thrown in between really mess my spring dreams up. I am thankful for sooo many things. What are you thankful for?

My Sweet hubby and our lil family.
 Parents who have stayed committed to each other.

Testimony of Christ unconditional love for me.
The cutest lil daughter in the "WHOLE WIDE WORLD"
Pedis with the girls.

These are a few of my favorite things to be thankful for. I pray that we remember the lil things especially when there are so many with so little especially after some of the devastating happenings in the world as of late. God watches over all of his children and loves each of us. He will provide and succor those who need his comfort.

Times are a changin.

It's about time for me to post news of my life changes.

First a huge change in my work status. I teasingly say I'm "retired". I am no longer employed at Goddard school as an infant room teacher. Oh I miss my sweet babies and teacher friends. Miranda misses them too she loved seeing the babies each day and gave all 14 of them kisses every morning before she went to school.

I am relieved to be able to get so many things cleaned up at home. I've already cleaned the house, organized my closet, who knew I had so many clothes, and sorted out Mirandas clothes. No wonder she complained about underwear being to tight she was wearing ones that were 3 sizes too small. Sorry about that "lil chica".
This week I have been working on the basement. I have found any entire craft store down there. I'm excited to start on some of these crafts, once I get this house in order. I also have bunches of stuff to take to also to sell. Now onto the huge selection of Christmas decorations. The hard part is deciding what to keep and what to throw away and donate. May the organizational gods be with me. One other thing that I have noticed right away was Miranda's attitude and my patience with her. She told me "your such a nice mommy now". I guess having more energy and peace and quiet in the day time gives me more to give to her. Even her behavior at school has improved.
As I keep going I'll try to remember to photo document my progress.

Here's to loving being a "domestic goddess".
