I’m elated! Adalyn has had two dry nights in a row! Yep, this is a post about toilet learning. Adalyn has been on the road to being diaper free for quite some time. She’s 2.5 years old now and is mostly dry and clean during the day. She’s only had a few accidents while out […]

Big changes are in the works for this homestead!
Over the weekend we got a TON of outside work done here on the half-acre homestead because we just put our house on the market! That’s right, we can’t put it off any longer. Our house is in less that perfect showing condition and is VERY lived in with the five of us crammed in […]
Grayson Prescott is born
December 4th 2013 After a morning of laboring at home and carrying on about our day we thought it wise to head towards the hospital. Here is the rundown of how the day went… Myself, Nathan, my girls, my doula and a lovely friend who was helping to look after the girls during labor all […]
A look at the wedding though another photographer’s eyes…
We were lucky enough to have two different wedding photographers at the wedding, each with a varied style. They both did a great job as I’m sure you’ll agree. In my previous wedding photos post I talked a bit about how lame I feel in posed photos and how lame I end up looking. I […]
We had OUR Wedding!
It’s official, we had our long awaited wedding! After a five year engagement and adding two daughters to our family, we finally found the time and money to make it happen. Now that it’s over, I can’t really detect any major difference between pre-wedding and post wedding life… but we did it and have the […]
My compost pile has been moved to my kitchen floor because of my baby…
It is true… Most times thoughout the day I’ve got a smattering of food under Adalyn’s chair. Thankfully I had the forethought to lay a kitchen towel under her seat… and I can just shake it off out in the yard for the chickens so it’s all good… … but this messy baby eating stage […]

Everly is now 5 days old: A look back on the birth experience.
The last week has been a whirlwind! Everly Charlotte was born on June 23rd 2009 at 1:16am. She weighed 8lbs 12oz and was 21 inches long, her head measured 34 1/2 cm. She was way bigger than we expected her to be but as you’ll see by the photos she is darn good and healthy! […]
Less-words Wednesday: Pregnancy Home Stretch Edition
There are only two more days until I leave you all and head off to wait on my little girls arrival. I am totally feeling ready for this and am very anxious for labor to begin. Saw the chiropractor yesterday and was all out of whack again. Even more so now that Tater’s bones are […]
Weekly Winners May 18th- 24th
Here is another Weekly Winners post, all photos were captured using my new Kodak Cd-1013 Digital Camera. This is the crappy food photo edition. Behold my first attempt at making Mac and Cheese from scratch, easy enough right? I knew something was terribly wrong when the macaroni was practically disintegrated after just a few minutes […]
Critters in my back yard: Rabbits, snakes, spiders, frogs and more.
There are only about 3 weeks left until I’ll be at The Farm. I am doing great and Tater seems to be planning to stay inside for a bit longer (thank goodness). I’ve told her she has to stay put until June 4th at least, that way she’ll be full term! In the meantime we […]
The Renters and the Slumlords: The drama comes to a close (and other updates).
On Sunday Slumlady actually met us at the old rental home and did a walk though inspection with us. We managed to get her on the phone Friday morning following the 33rd week prenatal appointment. We weren’t too sure she would actually show up to the appointment… We still let the neighbors know of the […]
How does the garden grow: a photo essay of my backyard May 7th 2009
I was out feeding the critters and the sight of my blooming rose bush caught my attention. I wanted to take some time to photograph the yard of our new place and to explain each photo a bit for those of you who were interested in seeing how it is all looking. Here is the […]
Wordless Wednesday: WTF? Edition!!
Why must Jack vomit almost every time he eats? Especially now that we have WHITE carpets? Perhaps it is because he is apparently swallowing whole pieces of food as opposed to chewing them like every other animal in the world. Yep, those whole bits came right from his stomach! Nothing like the sound of a […]
Today marks my 30th week of pregnancy, holy cow I am HUGE!!!
Just took my 30th week pregnancy photo and good lord did I pop! If you visit my online baby shower site you can see what I was looking like during my 26th week of pregnancy while we were out visiting my midwife. In one month I’ve grown quite a bit and the pictures are major […]

Wordless wednesday- things we do without…
Right now it seems there are more products I love and can’t find to buy these days than ever before. Since leaving Arizona we’ve found ourselves unable to find so many items we’ve become attached to. Please send groceries! We’ve been looking at the local pet stores like crazy for this litter. It is amazing […]
Making choices is hard stuff sometimes!
I am normally a pretty decisive person. When I know what I want I am set on it but when I don’t I am pretty open to whatever comes my way. Normally I can use logic and reason to help me make any decision easily and I would get annoyed with others for being indecisive. […]
20 week ultrasound appointment. We're having a…
[POPUP=IMG1]We got in for our appointment and got some nifty photos of our little one today. We even got a little CD with the photos in addition to the ultrasound printout. N was way excited about our appointment and he is super stoked at the news. Lets see, I weighed in at 119 today and […]
Coming out of the winter coma on a warm and sunny weekend…
You’ve heard about S.A.D right? It is a type of “winter mood disorder”… I’ve seen commercials about S.A.D and the prescription pills that “I should ask my doctor about if I am experiencing similar symptoms”. I have always rolled my eyes about the idea of the winter season making people depressed enough to need a […]
