A long time ago and far, far away….

graciejump2_2.jpgimg_3383_3.jpggracie-jump_1.jpgSomewhere in my past I had energy like this.  Somewhere in my past I also flew with the birds.  Somewhere in my past I did active things for fun…not exercise.  Oh, to be six again…..

My Girls

Connor gets his Weblo

scouts_11.jpgimg_3331_3.jpgimg_3335_4.jpgimg_3341_5.jpgimg_3319_1.jpgimg_3343_6.jpgimg_3349_7.jpgThis last Thursday was the Blue and Gold dinner for Cub Scouts and Connor earned a TON of pins and his Weblo badge!  He was really excited to go and earn his advancement.  The leaders do a ceremony where they have the boy wear a “suit of armor” and he is “knighted” as a Weblo.  Very cute.  Emma’s favorite part was the cake of course.  I love that Connor is so into the Cub/Boy Scout thing now.  When we first joined the church and he found out that the boy program in the church was Scouts he was horrified.  I mean crying, yelling and flat out telling us that he refused to participate.  Now he loves it.  I think Connor just has a hard time with change in general…hmmm…must come from Chris’s side! 🙂

A little nepotism

il_430xn_20180687.jpgil_430xn_20179694.jpgil_430xn_20171093.jpg031_1.jpgOK, so I have to tell you guys about my sister’s new business!  She has started designing and creating onesies and t-shirts for kids that are really cute!  Even for my sister I wouldn’t post about it if they weren’t really, really cute.  Kerri is just starting out and I just can’t believe the clothes have turned out as cute as they are.  She taught herself how to sew and came up with this concept on her own.  The idea was born from wanting to stay home with her son and not go back to work.  So, if you have gifts to give or just want to get a really cute shirt for your own kid…check her out!  I really believe in supporting women with great ideas and willing to take chances. I admire Kerri for giving this a shot.  I think she will be very successful.
