Welcome, 2014....

2013 has come and about to go....

2013 has been a year full of blessings.  Today, I guess in leu of 2014 approaching I have been super reflective.  And as trying as 2013 may have been, it has been packed full of surprise blessings.

Let's recap.









Here are some photos from the year.  Rett turned 1.  He traveled to New York, Pennsylvania, and Florida this year.  He was last year's New Year baby.  He learned so many things.  He learned to walk, sleep through the night, talk and make fish faces.  He was Batman for Halloween.  He went swimming this summer.  He loved the sand.  Rett had a good year.

My dad retired this year.  It has been 3 years since he has lived at home here in GA.  It will be exciting to get to see him more and be able to share more memories with him with Rett.

We got to visit with much of our family this year too.  We got to see our PA family many times throughout this year and have so enjoyed that.  We always love to go north and always welcome visits to GA!

Getting ready for Christmas - a Christmas wreath

Due to my anxiousness, Rett and I have been busy the last couple days.  We have shopped 'til we dropped, semi-finished our tree, semi-cleaned the house, wrapped some presents, and made a Christmas wreath.

Nothing is really complete except the wreath but hopefully by this time next week (when Kraig's parents arrive) we will be complete with everything.  FINGERS CROSSED

But today I got my craft on.  I rarely craft, mainly because I don't feel confident in my skills.  And I am not creative.  Plain and simple.  But I have some friends who are and give me inspiration.  Here you can see my friend's Cindy gift box wreath.  She is super crafty and I love reading her blog.  Please check it out.  My friend Stacie makes cool wreaths a lot too.  She made a awesome pink frame and made it a wreath...I tried to find a picture of it and came up empty handed.  Take my word for it - so cute!

Well, here is my go at my Christmas box wreath...

First - I got the supplies...I just took a st…

update....

Christmas is approaching.

I feel anxious and overwhelmed because I don't have all the "kid-friendly" things for Rett to experience.  I have been on a crazy hunt for all the fun things that I feel like we should do to celebrate Christmas.  Such as a Nativity scene, an advent calendar,  and we need stockings and just fun decorations.  I can't find any of the things I want.  I may be too picky though because I don't want some of the newer versions of things so I have been searching Ebay and thrift stores.  I told Kraig that we probably should have been collecting these fun and kid friendly things over the years and we have failed.  At least we have our tree up, right!  It doesn't have the ornaments on yet but we have lights!  We hope to finish that tonight...fingers crossed.

Rett is now 17 months.  Growing so fast.  We have been going to the doctor every month or month and a half since he turned 1.  So, update on that.  The doctors have been concerned because he…
