We had a short camping trip over the weekend. 
Being in the mountains is so peaceful and relaxing.
Kimball has been working out of town so this was a fun little trip for our family.

Dieter loved the river best. 
Throwing rocks is his thing!

I also loved the river.
Especially the sound. 
Somehow, I need to move a river into my backyard. :)

My motivation is completely lacking to blog.
My kids are so much happier when I'm not on the computer as much.
In fact, I feel happier too.
It's amazing how many other things I can accomplish 
when I'm not on the computer. 
Pulling weeds, planting, feeding animals, cleaning (definitely unmotivated to do that), 
playing with my kids, reading, sewing, the list goes on...

Hopefully motivation comes back soon :)

I made this adorable dress for Samantha. 
I was so proud of myself! 
It is the first thing I have sewed while following a pattern. 
It turned out great. 

I'm excited to start sewing more often.
Find pattern here.

Have a fabulous weekend!
See you next week!

And she is 1...

Samantha's birthday is today!
I'm not sure where that year went?

She has brought so much happiness into our home.
She is always happy!
She loves to blow kisses and wave goodbye.
She will only sleep next to her mama at night. (I know. I know.)
She loves Dieter.
I think her favorite thing to do is play on the bed with Daddy and Dieter.
She loves watching the chickens. 

Kimball is out of town working today.
We will plan a combined birthday party for Dieter and Samantha. 

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful Mothers out there!
Kimball asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day. 
I said, "Don't worry, I have myself covered with these shoes."

Have a great time with your families!

Catching Up

Kimball has been out of town.
So I have been catching up on Downton Abbey.
I can watch shows like that when he's gone. :)
I love it!

Here is my to do list for this weekend:

Pull more weeds.
Organize book shelf.
Pack away clothes that are too small for kids.
Give Kimball a huge hug and a big kiss... And one more big hug...and a kiss :)
Smile while I watch Kimball play with Dieter and Samantha!

I hope your weekend is fabulous!

We have a lot of chickens!

Around 130! 
Your probably wondering what we will do with them? 
Our freezer will be full and we'll have more eggs than we know what to do with. 
I can't wait!
