Possibility of a Miracle

This picture is taken one day after my due date when I was preggers with RJ (two days before she was born). I had a 42" belly at this point. I thought this quote fit perfectly "Everyday holds the possibility of a miracle" because you are just waiting...not sure when it is going to happen. I made this page for a sketch challenge from Unity. I used some paper my mom just bought me! I LOVE it mom, thanks!

Some Silly Things...

So here is Rebecca in our backyard. In her right hand she has some grass she has ripped up to feed the bugs. She is going over to the fence, to try to feed them. They keep flying off though.

The other morning on our way to school she says,"Daddy wants a new car." and I say, "Oh yeah?" and she says "Yeah he wants a red one. Its pretty."

And then just a few minutes ago, she tooted. And I said "Hey you tooted." and she says, "Yeah, you want to smell it?" and then starts using her hands to waft it my way. The things her daddy teaches her.

Sunshine and Snakes

We have had beautiful weather lately and have spent some afternoons outside. Steve loves being able to bring the snakes out onto the lawn to play. Rebecca loves that Mo is HER snake.

Thank you card

I wanted to make a special thank you card for my friend Diane. I decided to do an inspiration challenge to get me started on it. The inspiration was to be an Olympic Ice Skater's outfit. I chose Marai Nagasu from the US team. I love this outfit! The bottom is the inside of the card.

Painting Toes

I got my toes painted a few weeks ago, since I can't reach them myself. Rebecca thought it was so cool and she wanted her toes painted pink. So I painted her toes and we had some M&Ms while they were drying so she would sit still.
This is the ONLY picture I took of Rebecca in the month of February. So sad.
