12 weeks

 not much has been happening around these neck of the woods...

but somehow mr. levi has turned 12 wks old today!!

 we love much
 we feel so blessed!

 and his smiles and coo's melt our heart each time!! in fact, when we want him to smile or coo we generally have to call in the support of his big sisters, as they can make it happen every.time!! he loves his sisters...and they can NOT get enough of him!!

here's a picture of a hat i just made for the Craft Fair I'm in tomorrow...
not a good picture of my lil man, but you get the idea!

so...there ya have it! sorry things have been so sparse around here, but life is busy...Jim is (PTL) back at work until Christmas - a definite blessing given how much we have going on in December!  The girls are soaking up all the learning we are doing...our homeschooling group is off and running, meeting once a week...i have 4 fairs between now and Christmas.  So, unfortunately, blogging has not made it to the top of any of my to-do lists...but you go this one :)

we carved some

avery didn't like the she wouldn't help

but then she did

 we found some seeds...baked them and ate them (mmmm)

and had a lot of fun...making memories together...

we are blessed, indeed!

glo sticks

my girls have been so awesome with the adjusting we've done in the past two months getting used to being a family of FIVE!! it still gets even me sometimes!

so i wanted to do something special for them that i knew they would enjoy, just as a little treat for being such good girls and HUGE helpers to their muma and awesome big sisters!

so....for two whole dollars...

we made what usually is a chore

into something very fun!

2 whole months

wow...that's all i can say!

how on earth has 2 months gone by already??! has and we are enjoying each day with our little mister!

we've enjoyed the days gone by watching this little guy come into his own...

he grunts like there's no tomorrow

he makes noise unlike any I've heard

he's just starting to smile...which melts my heart each time

he's cooing, especially to his sisters!

and he calms down at the sound of my voice

he is still in our room,  something i find quite funny because the girls never made it past 2 weeks in our room!!

i think it's me getting a tad smarter the more children i have...WHY on earth did i put them in their own room...all the way down the hall??

having him close to me makes the thru-the-nite feedings that much less work in my sleepless state!

as much as i wish i had something more memorable or witty to say...all i can muster is we're doin' good

life's good

and what more could a girl ask for?!

Apple Festival

 We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday last weekend taking part in this year's Apple Fest!

Bright sunny day...right at the water...lots of friends to visit...and fun stuff for the girls...

like cinnamon scented play-dough

 Karys' little birdie in a nest...can you see it??

Proud of her creation
 enjoying a delicious treat!

Beanie peeling her takes a LOT of concentration!

another great day for the memory-bank:)

silly girls

 the girls got a hold of my camera and had some fun...

one month...aka five weeks :P

what a difference a month makes

there are so many things that can be done in a month

my heart has grown in vast proportions this month

i didn't think i could love another child so completely

i didn't think i could function on such little sleep

i didn't think we would adjust to being "5" as smoothly as we have


life is good

the end

#1 and #3

lil bro and lil bro!!

quickly filling up the bassinet

stylin' lil one month!
