A Word in Pictures :: In The Kitchen

This month's theme was "In The Kitchen". Usually when I am in my kitchen I am running around as quickly as a I can to make something, clean up or something of the sort. So, it was interesting to remember to take the time to take pictures.

Here are a few of my favorite kitchen items:

    The Ninja! Seriously I use it almost everyday! Go to the store and get one today- you won't regret it!

    Need some chicken shredded- no problem.

    Want to make a delicious smoothie or anything else you can think of...

    My three new Pampered Chef Items and how can you not love everything Pampered Chef!

    One reason I do LOVE the kitchen is because it is where all the delicious treats are located. ;-)

    Gavin's favorite spot in the kitchen, chilling while the rest of us eat our meals. :)

    Aiden will occasionally help me make something and although it takes me longer to make what I'm       
    making, I love it! This was his first experience with a beater and he was a fan! (No worries, there  
    was no raw egg in this dessert.)

    This month I also made a few loaves of homemade bread.

    Just last night I made a Nutella Banana Bread, seriously amazing. Buy some Nutella and make this!

    My big helper helping me put away the clean (until his hands touched them :)) silverware.

Now head on over to Jody's Blog and see what she did in her kitchen this month!

Who Is Gavin?

Hi, my name is Gavin and I am 7 weeks old today. Here are some fun facts about me:
  • My mom guesses I weigh about 10-12 pounds.
  • The outfit in the first picture is 6 months! I still fit great into 3 months, but also some 6.
  • I don't believe in sleeping during the day and my mom is still trying to figure that out.
  • My mom washes my head every single day to help get rid of that itchy, flaky stuff.
  • I sleep for one one 6-7 hour stretch at night.
  • My mom talks about how much I spit up, but I can't help it when it comes up. :)
  • If I am wearing a cute outfit, there's a good chance I will have a diaper explosion. 
  • I smile many times a day.
  • My favorite times of the day is after I eat and when my mom, dad or brother talk to me.
  • My parents get so excited when I talk to them!
  • I know I am deeply loved by those around me.

Gavin's Nursery Tour

I am so excited to share with you Gavin's nursery! It has been a long time of trying to figure out what to do and a lot of work put into it by so many people! I am very happy with how it turned out, it feels very peaceful and tranquil in there. :)  The blanket on the chair was my first purchase and inspiration. The rest of the room came from many hours of thinking, re-thinking & then creating!!

   Walking in from the hall.

    Turn to the right, dresser and such.

  A wide angel view from inside the closet. :) (I forgot to put on my blue changing pad cover...oops)
Crib skirt made by my mother-in-law (white with blue polka dots).

 The wall gallery.
Wall art made by Dan.

  The crib.
This quilt was put together by myself and a friend, Cindy.
My sister, Dawn added the back and did the quilting. Lots of love put into it!

  Above the crib.
Again, the elephants were made by myself and stitched by Cindy.

This nursery could not of been possible without the help of so many, which makes it all the more special!

About Me

My photo
I am a follower of Jesus and I am committed to living life for Him. I am the wife of a wonderful man who loves me so much and the mother to the best two little boys! I love my family to pieces and miss them everyday! I love my friends (obviously) lol. They all are such a joy to me! I am a youth pastors wife and I enjoy being involved in the lives of teens and just people in general. I love photography and find so much joy in the moments I want to remember being saved in time. Last but not least I love sunshine and being warm. :) That's me in a nutshell, the important things anyways. :)
