I will be honest- as a mother, sometimes it is so hard to keep a good attitude. I find myself grumbling all the way to the nursery some nights when Daniel is waking me up to nurse. All I can imagine is that he is ruining my sleep... on purpose. At least, that is what one would think if my grumblings were heard by another.

Yet still, I have been able to find great solace in the thought that I should appreciate every moment- no matter how annoying- because one day they will be grown and I would do anything to go back to when they were little babies. So that is what I {try} to tell myself at 3am as I unwrap his squirmy body from the three blankets I swaddle him in, kiss his nose and spend those moments with him that I will one day remember as some of the most precious.


As a side note, I have been working on lots of crafty things, but I have been afraid to post them lest a family member unwittingly discovers a soon-to-be Christmas gift.

Sourdough starter from the Oregon Trail. Woot!

I just completely lucked out was blessed to be given some sourdough starter that was used on the Oregon Trail! Seriously. I have spent the day reading up on sourdough recipes and how to not kill my starter. I am making crackers and bread today.

Sourdough today...Keffir tomorrow! (Maybe not yet)

Another tea party

Today a few of my friends gathered to watch Lark Rise to Candleford.

I got to use my vintage set for the first time :)

 Of course, we had to do it nineteenth century English style and throw a tea party. Why oh, why, did we only start doing these our last year of all living near each other?

Katherine loved her little tea cup.

So far these have all been very small. We have been getting together since we started seminary, but have only done it with a proper tea twice. I really want to have a larger one and invite a lot of people. I think it would be grand.

I have been adding many more pictures to my Pinterest board. I thought I would {hopefully} brighten your day with some pretty pictures.
