Memorial Weekend events

We are heading out of town this weekend to spend it at our lake house. I am quite excited to be going, but I think the girls are much more excited than I am at this point. They both are looking forward to fishing since it is still too cold to be able to swim, at least here in central VA anyway.

I have so many things I still need to accomplish before my son arrives, sometime in the next 6-8 weeks. I just shake my head as I think of the things I need to do. My husband is working so many hours right now on the new project his company has that it is making it hard to accomplish much of anything here. Then of course we coach softball for our daughters team, so that takes up a lot of our time too. We are trying to find a dependable contractor currently to finish up the addition to our house so we can start moving the girls into their new bedrooms to make room for their little brother. He will most likely sleep in our room for the first 2-3 months though.

I hope everyone has a blessed and safe Memorial Weekend!

Our day at the lake

Today we all got up early and went to our lake house. We are trying to get everything ready for this coming up Memorial Day weekend. We did odd and end things such as cleaning up and laundry. My husband also worked on our boat. He put a new trolling motor on and began working on putting in new fishing seats. We took our girls fishing for a little while also. I wish I had remembered to bring my camera. Lauren, my 4yr old, caught 3 carp and 1 perch with the help of her daddy. My silly dogs both fell into the lake while trying to catch the bait on the fishing line :) It seems they will never learn!

After I put the girls in bed tonight I have a wholesale order of korker bows I need to work on. It takes a long time to prepare the ribbon to make these, but they are by far some of the cutest bows I make.

Getting started on blogging

This is my first attempt at learning the great art of blogging :) . After much thought, I have decided this is something I definitely want to give a try. I have found that somedays I have so much to say, but absolutely no one around who can listen, so this can be my new forum of expression.
