Getting Better

We've been sick, all of us caught the stomach bug that seems to be plaguing the Ohio Valley. Thankfully it only lasted a couple of days. We are all on the mend, but runny noses are still among us. So I'm tracking down the best humidifier to buy and not break down on me like the last one. I'll be ordering a couple of those this week!

Meanwhile, we trying to figure out refinancing the house, and Joe is trying to figure out what that orange dashboard light is telling us on my van. The 8 foot privacy fence we started on about 4 or 5 weeks ago is about 97 % done! Joe has to build the gate and finish up the last bit by the house.

I've tried my hand at caramel corn and wassail last week, going for that fall feel even though winter is bearing down on us. =oP The wassail could have used a little more "bite" so I'll try another recipe..but the caramel corn was scrumptious!

Happy moment: Adelaide - "look at me mommy, I a princess"

Back in the swing

We're getting back in the swing of things around here. Life seems to be getting back to normal somewhat. I'm finding time to sew here and there. Adam has been sleeping like a dream the past few nights, I actually woke him up after he slept 10 hours straight last night. Daytime is another story, but it's slowly getting better. He tends to power nap often, leaving me feeling like I spend most of the day trying to get him back down to sleep. He so sweet, it's hard be upset at him. We all love him so much. Mornings, he just wakes up the end of the day he's a bit grumpy from lack of sleep, but still manages to smile at daddy when he gets home.
I've taken a few more pics but here's a really good one Joe took at 8 weeks.. those eyes are still blue!
