Merry Christmas Ladies!!

Hi Ladies! I hope you all had a great Christmas. Here is our family pic, taken Christmas day. I would love to see more Christmas family pics from you all! :)

Here are my very belated cards I just made today! I thought it would be fun to use pics from the performance we were in - 'Twas the Night Before Christmas." The greeting is a line from the poem. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families!

Merry Christmas, Mommy's Group!

I love April's idea of posting Christmas pictures--it's fun to see everyone and how the kids are growing, since I don't get to come as much as I'd like :)
Have a wonderful Christmas, all of you!!
Love, Emma and Kaia

Christmas Pics

I was thinking it might be fun for us to post family Christmas pics here. What do you all think? We haven't had ours taken yet, but when we do I will post it for sure! I would love to see family pics of those of you out of the area too, (as I'm sure many others here would too!) :)

Mom's Night Out Cookie Exchange

We had a great time last night at the cookie exchange-wrapping party-sewing night at Scottie Dog Quilts! It was fun hanging out while getting gifts wrapped and working on our projects. As an added bonus we all got to take home a plate of delicious sweets for our families. We wish you could have been here Elizabeth and Tracy, (and all of our other out of town moms!) Thanks so much Liz for lending us the shop for the night!

Lots of working and talking went on.

Some of the yummy creations!

One of My Favorite Baby Pics

Great idea Molly! Here is one of my very favorite pictures of Justin (and Sarah) I just love everything about it. I feel like it shows the love between them and the tender care they have for one another.

One of your favorite baby pics of...

Hey! Let's post pics of (one of our) favorite pics of our babies! I love looking through old pics of Ella and laughing and crying! Sometimes I just want to stop the clock-they grow up way too fast! It's fun to share precious pics with our dear friends! I'm so blessed that we all love each others kids so much! They are blessed to be surrounded by so much love too!

This is Ella at about a year and a half. We were potty training and she loved putting her big sissy's big panties and my panties on. (She just didn't know about the leg holes yet!) Anyway, I caught her bare-buns on a lazy summer afternoon looking out at the animals. I think it's precious, innocent, and captures her spirit.


Hey mamas!

Just talked to Amy's mom and BABY GARREN has arrived! He weighs 6lb 11oz and is 19" long with black hair! Amy's still in recovery so keep her in your prayers as well as her whole fam! Makenna will stay with her grandma tonight, so keep her in your bedtime prayers too!
She's at Fortuna Memorial Hospital for the next 3 days if you want to call her, visit her or whatever!

CONGRATS GARTH AND AMY, MAKENNA AND GARREN! Can't wait to welcome Garren to our mommy's group!

Cookie Exchange?!?!?

Hey! Would anyone or everyone be interested in a "cookie exchange" sometime in December for Mommy's Group? We could start a tradition, mabye it could be a "GNO" event at someone's house and we can eat and exchange cookies and drink egg nog or cider and rum?!?! Just a thought...

We'll Miss You Elizabeth!

I thought I would add the "We'll Miss You Elizabeth" post from my blog:

Today we had a special mommy's group for our leader, Elizabeth. She is moving away to Southern California and we are all going to miss her a lot! She's been such an awesome support for all of us for such a long time. We did a "Hollywood Ending" party and some dressed up in high style. Some of the moms worked on a beautiful quilt for her as a going away present. Here are a few pics from the day:

Mom's Night Out

About a month and a half ago some of us went out for dinner at Rita's in Arcata. We had a great time eating Mexican food, sipping on margaritas and hanging out together. I think it's time to do another one of these again!
