Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Things I've Made

Recently, I've made a few things that I'd like to share with you.

The first, and most important, is Atticus!  Of course, I didn't create this handsome guy, but I did have the honor of carrying him for 9+months while the Lord did this amazing work.  He is a joy and the perfect addition to our family.
This is a "GPS" for the kids.  They always ask if we are almost to Grandma and Grandpa's or Granny and Grampy's whenever we go to their respective houses.  So, I decided to make this interactive map to, hopefully, give them a sense of where we are and not ask if "we're there yet" so many times.  I can tell them what number we are at and they just move our car to that number on the map.

Yesterday, I had one of the college girls over for tea and scones.  I made regular and whole wheat versions.  I actually like the nuttiness of the whole wheat with flaxseed scones.  Yummy!

For dinner that night we had Lasagna Roll Ups.  In an effort to branch out and find some meatless recipes, just for variety, these were made with tofu.  My goal is to incorporate "Tofu Tuesdays" into my meal plan routine.  We'll see how that goes.  These Roll Ups were very good, though, and I made extras to freeze for when Brad goes on his trip to Texas.
Finally, more of Atticus' room has come together.  Thanks to Granny and Grampy, he got a new crib, which I had fun putting together.

I made a matching blanket and crib skirt, which also match his curtains.

For both of the kids rooms, I took off the sliding closet doors and hung up curtains instead.  The curtains are actually $5 twin sheets from Walmart.  I just undid the hem a little at the top to create an opening and then hung them on tension rods.

I didn't make this sign, but Granny made it for Atticus.  It is a happy sign.
I love creating and making things, even when I'm tired.:)  It gives me such a sense of accomplishment!
