A little on the creative side!

Since I love being "crafty" I decided it was time to get Ariana involved in some artsy things! We made binoculars (above) from old toilet paper rolls, we do LOTS of coloring with markers, crayons and colored pencils (all washable!), this super neat finger paint that is basically non-messy by Crayola, and also playdough has finally been permitted! We still have to supervise VERY closely the playdough- it beats me why every kid eats that stuff! But we have had many hours of fun rolling, poking, squishing, etc... I bought some large wooden beads and cording too, so sometime soon we will be making "pretties" (her name for jewelry). It has been a wonderful entertainer- giving me a chance to sit down and keeps her happy. I don't like her watching too much tv, so this has been a wonderful alternative!

About Our Family...

My photo
We are a family who was birthed through God's incredible goodness- joining our hearts and lives in a way we call miraculous. Nathan and I were married April 11,2009, which just happened to be one of the most perfect days in our lives. Ariana is our beautiful, two year old daughter, that we thank God for every day. She brings so much joy to our lives and delight to our hearts. Landon joined us six months ago. He was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery at three months of age. We are so grateful for his speedy healing and this happy, healthy baby boy! We are an Army family- this is Nathans' thirteenth year serving our country. We recently moved across the country and are loving the life God has blessed us with. Our life is simple, but its beautiful to us and I pray that you are blessed by the beauty that we find in it.
