These two Canadian Geese have taken residence in our pond.  I guess they are going to call it their summer home.  Hope they don't eat all the tadpoles that live in there.  I love hearing the frogs chirp at night, it is a very peaceful sound!

Bad Hair day!

My cats hair has been matted for a while now, and I decided to cut his fur for him, lets just say I better keep my day job.  I am sorry kitty.  Poor kitty :( 
 I was doing good until the blade protector fell off, and then it went right to skin.  No cuts, just really short~short hair in spots.

Gabriella's photo shoot

Had Rachel  Ann Photography come to my house last weekend and I had Gabriella's pictures taken.  Gabriella was a little tearful, but the pictures turned out amazing.  Thanks Rachael for your expertise with the camera, all the pictures look amazing :)   I have decided to share a few with my bloggers.  What do you think of my beautiful little girl?

Got Windex

These are a few of the many glass houses in the world.  I can not image having one, for I really enjoy my privacy.  Who knew people actually build glass houses.  All I have to say is "GOT WINDEX!"  You will need plenty of it to clean the windows on these homes.  Just amazing!!!  The one home has all glass including the furniture.  Just breath taking.  Looks like a crystal mansion.  But, I will stick to my log home, I like the northern look. Enjoy!

A little of this and a little of that!

I have been so busy trying to get everything done and raising my beautiful baby girl, I just haven't found time lately to blog.
Today, Gabriella is 5 months old. Where has the time gone?  I can not believe that it has been 5 months already.  Gabriella is almost starting to crawl already.  The Pediatrician said she is advanced for her age, lets just hope it stays that way.  I always tell everyone, I really don't care about book smarts... I would prefer common sense. Many people lack common sense, but that topic is for a whole different post.  We will work on book smarts.  She is wonderful.  I love Gabby.
This past weekend has been pretty busy, Gabriella got her 5 month pictures taken.  I will post pictures when I get them.  Gabreilla and I also went for many walks.  Started raking the lawn, its going to take a long time, if I do everything that I would like to get done.  It is unbelievable how nice it has been outside.  Let's just say AMAZING weather we are having for March.
I baked a loaf of bread this morning.  I love baking, I just cant find the time to do it.  I let the bread raise over night.  I can hardly wait to try it once it comes out of the oven.
With working, being a wife, trying to start a new business, and being a mommy I just can't seem to do everything.  Life is hectic but I am loving it!
Hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for my beautiful daughter, she lightens up my life.  She makes me so happy, I could not be more happy since you are in my life.  I love my sweet Gabriella Raye!

 I am not one for patience, I had to try on her dress too see if it fit her, and she looks so adorable!

My husband is so AMAZING.  
Today, my husband told me to go to my hair salon/spa Stepping Stone Salon and Day Spa at 2:15 pm, I told him I didn't have to because I don't have an appointment.  He said, "Hun, they called and said you forgot something last time you were there."  I said .... "I haven't been there for like a month, what could be that important that I forgot and why would it take them a month to call me and tell me I forgot something."  Then, he said, "I don't know, but your hair stylist has been on vacation"  Now, I am stumped, who goes on vacation for a month?  She is like 23 years old.  Really?  Seriously?
Any who, I got in the car at 1:45 pm and went to the salon.  I got to the salon at 2:10 pm, walked inside and to my SURPRISE Kellie was there waiting for me.  She told me that my husband call and he wanted her to give me a massage.  AMAZING!!!
All my complaining about sore achy muscles paid off, my husband got me a massage.  Not only did he make the appointment, but he went the extra steps and paid for it ahead of time, leaving her a tip and everything.  What an amazing guy, I think I will keep him.

Spring Thaw #2

It must have been very warm out last night while I was sleeping because I woke up to an overflowing pond.  Wow is the snow melting.  Amazing.

Spring Thaw

I absolutely love the spring thaw.  The smells, the mud, and the sounds of the water running off the hills.
This is my house the ice and snow are running off the roof.  It  is a good feeling to almost have spring.  
Took Gabby for a mile walk in her Kangaroo Pouch this afternoon.  Lets just say she loved it, she sleep the whole way.  I believe it is 50 degrees here in Wisconsin today.  Hope the good weather stays a little longer.  I think I am getting cabin fever.  I feel like a chicken in a chicken coop.  Can't wait to get out! 
 Hope you like my pictures from my pouch.  I always enjoy my wrap around pouch in the spring, summer and fall.  I can't wait to get back outside.  I have such beautiful scenes from every angle of my home, I am lucky!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Gabriella's Easter Dress

I just purchased Gabriella's Easter dress.  What do you think of what Dale and I picked out.  I wanted a dress that she could wear a couple of times.  There are many pretty easter dresses with lots of lace and under dress fluff.  I just didn't think I wanted to buy her a dress that she could only wear one time.  I am very happy with our pick.  I think we found a dress that will be very comfortable for her. 

Hope your Sunday is going GREAT!


Just found Gabriella's hospital pictures.  So cute
