8 GREAT months with our Lady

Yep, look who's eight months old!  Can you believe it?!?!  We cannot!  She's squishy and adorable and loved by all of us so very much.  She's a good little sitter, still a little tippy.  She rolls everywhere and can get to whatever she wants.  No crawling yet.  But that's ok- our babies are always a little bit later for the crawling and walking thing.  I think it's because we hold them TOO much, if there ever is a TOO much baby holding sort of thing.  (I'd say not!)

A Berry Fine Day

Last week, my mother-in-law took our two oldest girls out blueberry picking.  After being gone for a few hours, they come home with bellies full of berries and a yummy lunch from Culvers with their Grandma and cousins and 6 pounds of berries to share.  It was a WIN for us all, I'd say.  Our girls love this annual tradition of berry picking!

++Thank you God for time spent with Grandmas and cousins and for all the yummy fresh  blueberries!!++

New DOs

Rose got her very first haircut just recently.  It was SO long and was getting a little too much for her styling tastes.  She wasn't liking me combing out the tangles every day.  So our rule is - if you are going to have long hair, then you have to take care of it (or at least mommy help you take care of it). I told her that shorter hair would be easier to take care of and wouldn't have as many rats.  So she jumped at the chance of getting it cut to make it more manageable.

And look who else got a haircut too...

You Whittle WOOD...



A hard lesson our son Mario learned this month.  A couple stitches later and he was all sewn up and back to normal.

Thank God it was a pretty minor accident, but it was our first set of stitches in our family nonetheless.

Wordless Wednesday: Totus Tuus Shaving Cream WARS

Playing Betty Crocker

When you have a wonderful big sister who gifts you with cherries from her cherry tree, you need to be creative on how to use them.  

First you must....

Wash 'em

De-stem 'em

Pit 'em

(and it's really nice to pawn those 3 jobs off on your 14 year old son, if you have one)

Cut 'em in half 

And then...

Make a PIE!!!  

So my baby sister and I got together last Saturday morning and made CHERRY pies!  My very first homemade fruit pie with a homemade crust.  Yeah, can you believe it?  And, I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't that difficult.  What do you think?  

It sure tasted great!!  Next up will be a homemade apple pie.  With a homemade crust again!! I can get used to this Betty Crocker thing!  ;)

What are some of your favorite ways to play Betty Crocker?  
What do you like to bake?
