Updates from the farmhouse

Grandson #4 arrived on July 12, 2014!

That's my hubby's arm in the picture.  I recognize the NC State watch!
Grandson #5 will arrive in about a month.

Here are a few summer pictures:

I hope you are having a great summer.  We have had so much going on, with a wedding, a wedding shower, a baby shower and two new babies on the way, along with the normal summer activities! 

Some homemaking activities have also been going on.  I have been freezing tomatoes and peas in small batches.  A little here and there will come in handy for making vegetable soup this fall and winter.

I've been doing some yard work recently, including planting some zinnia seeds in pots.  If they come up, I can transplant them all over the yard.  Zinnias are very easily transplanted.  Just scoop up the baby zinnia with a spoon and carry it over to where you want it to grow.  It will never know it has been moved.  We've had a few "cooler than normal" days lately, so its been nice to get outside a little bit.

Well,there's just a little look into what's been going on around here.  Have a great day!

A Baby Shower For Baby Jake!

Here are a few decorations I have been working on for Baby Jake's baby shower which is tomorrow.  The colors for the shower are blue and green with a Monster's Inc. theme.

Here's a name banner I made with bows on each end and twirly ribbons hanging from the ceiling.  One of the food tables will be in front of these decorations.

A onesie and baby washcloth bouquet:

A four wheeler made from diapers, a sippy cup, baby dishwasher basket, baby socks, and bib:

Here are a couple of pictures showing the process for making the four wheeler.

The internet is such a wonderful resource for finding directions for all kinds of things.  Directions for all of these things can be found on You Tube and Pinterest.  I even learned to make the bows shown above.  Those are the first I've ever made!

Turn around and you're a young wife with babes of your own.....

How can it be that my first born is 34 years old? It happened while I wasn't looking. It reminds me of that old song: Turn around and you're tiny. Turn around and you're grown. Turn around and you're a young wife with babes of your own....

She was tiny.

A young wife with babes of her own.
Her youngest babe.

Her oldest babe.

Happy Birthday dear daughter!
