We're moving to Colorado!

This is what my loom room looks like right now... but worse because the boxes have grown even higher since this picture was taken!


Yes, we are moving to Colorado!  We are tired of Brian commuting to another state for work.  This has been our life for 14 months now, and we are tired of not being together as a family.  In order to get the house ready, we have painted, scrubbed, replaced things, cut down trees, weeded like mad, and cleaned out all the closets and paired it all down to just the basics.  I plan on turning the garage into a huge storage area so it looks decent for home tours.  The house is looking fabulous though, and it makes me wonder why we didn't do some of these things a long time ago!




So instead of yarn pictures, you'll just have to "suffer" through some cute baby pictures and nature shots... for a little while anyway!

Everything is in bloom right now and it's so pretty!

First steps!

This just happened this evening!

I'm so proud of my little boy!  He's only 10 months old, and he's growing up so fast!  

Just yesterday he FINALLY decided to hold his bottle!  But it's still a little random and at his choosing:



This weekend we had a lot of storms and David didn't get to go outside hardly at all!  It was so cold on some of the days!  Instead, we had fun with the camera indoors:







This last one is my absolute favorite!

Thousands of pictures in Photoshoots

I have taken a lot of pictures this week!  845 today alone in a photoshoot... but then there was another photoshoot Monday with another family and we decided to also do one as a family this week... so thousands and thousands of pictures later...

This was from Monday night with a family of 6.  We threw baby David into the mix for an April fool's picture for them this year.  Baby David looks just like one of their kids!



This was from the photoshoot tonight... this little lady was so much fun to photograph!  She had my complete attention with her extreme cuteness!
 
 



And here are some from our family day we took on Wednesday at the lake.  We decided to wear matching shirts, which is NOT nerdy... :)

 
 
 
 

This little guy is so close to walking on his own.  Twice today I caught David letting go of something and taking 1 step to grab onto something else!  He loves going outside to play, and I am finding he sleeps much better if we do spend time outside everyday.  We play at the park almost everyday on our way home from our morning walk or bike ride, and then later in the afternoon we play outside in our yard, both front yard and backyard.  He's not afraid to play hard, and I'm not afraid to let him get dirty!  He loves to dig in the dirt, crunch leaves, and bury himself in woodchips.

And if you came here for a weaving picture, well... you're in luck because I have one of those, too!



This is the yarn I was spinning up last week to make an extra wide scarf.  I decided to do a simple pattern like chevrons because of the chaos in the yarn.  So far, I love it!

Spinning complete!

Spinning for this project is now complete!  Time to warp!



More pictures outside with my buddy today.  We visited a park across town, and he wasn't quite as interested in it as our own park closer to home.  It took some work to get there, and we went by bike, so I'm ok if we don't visit very often!  I think the reason he wasn't very interested at this park is because there were no woodchips or sand to dig into and play with.  It had this hard-tire surface, which is great to stay clean, but he wants to get dirty!






Thumbs up!


All tuckered out!


When we got home, we played outside after lunch.  This kid LOVES the outdoors!  I'm so glad that he does, because so do I!
