Wrapping up....

As usual, life has been pretty busy.  Ben and I are participating in our church's quickly approaching Reformation Day play, which means costuming!  As usual, I have put things off until almost the last minute (I know...one day I'll learn...but sewing requires inspiration!!!), so in between mothering and house-wifing, sewing has managed to squeeze into my daily routine.  I'm taking a quick commercial break to posts a few pictures from the last day of our trip, though this one will be short for two reasons...the aforementioned busy-ness and the sad fact that my camera died on the very last day!  I managed to keep it going for the whole trip, but on the last day, it was tired.  And horror of horrors (well, for wannabe photographers like me), I had to use my phone for a few!!! :(  

Next post will be full of pictures and stories from our visit to the Young Living Lavender Farm in Utah.  We are also excited to announce that we'll be hosting a giveaway for one of their wonderful blends!  So check back soon!

Okay, the sewing machine is calling me...so I'd better run.  Enjoy!

 Coming back home on 120 means crossing Tioga Pass and driving through the always beautiful Yosemite!

 Well pulled off a few times to enjoy the view, breath the mountain air and eventually go for a hike.  But, the camera didn't last that long, so we have no photographic evidence. :(

 Home...

 ...sweet home.  Yes, my husband was hugging the tree....does that make him a tree hugger? ;)

In other news...other BIG news...guess who turned 6 months old this month?!?!?!

 Yup...my little girl is growing up!  She couldn't believe it, either!  Well, mostly because we let her eat real food!  She's been begging for table food for quite a while now, so she was tickled pink when we pulled out her silver spoon (yes, she has one...thanks Grandmommy!!!) and gave her some egg yolk.  The video is below...

 Not only does she gab all of the time, and smile and coo, and eat her feet, and all the fun things that babies do, but she figured out how to sit up!  

 She's is trying hard to crawl, much to her father's excitement...I, however, am quite content with her being immobile.  Her rolling all over the place already has been pinning her in...  This, as you will find out in the video, is her excited face.

 Now, doesn't she have the sweetest smile ever?   

Okay, time for the video! 
Be SURE to check back SOON for our Young Living essential oil giveaway!  We have some neat stories about our trip to the lavender farm in Utah and some oils to giveaway!

Hi Tiffany! I am a long time blog reader (or should I say lurker. :P) I am currently courting a very wonderful young man, and we are planning on getting married once he is through college and has a job. He's really interested in pursuing a career in marketing, but I have been doing some research about it, and from what it sounds like, marketing requires a lot of travel and a very long work day. I know Ben does something with marketing...does he travel a lot or work long hours? Is it a family friendly job? Any answers you might have would be really appreciated! Thank you! :)

Blessings,
Shaynie
