easter thoughts and such

I’ve been feeling a little sorry for myself this week. There were a few reasons, but here’s the big one: a new grandlittle that I’ve yet to meet.

busy hands for little ones

I have been madly trying to work on some projects for my new grandlittles.  They’ve actually been in the works for some time, but I’ve stalled here and there. A friend mentioned once that she prays for the recipient of the things she makes.  I thought that was an awesome idea, and began doing this myself.  I…… Continue reading busy hands for little ones

life with littles

We’ve been enjoying life with littles again as we’ve been babysitting our Northern boy’s twins.  Living far away means we seldom see them, but it also means that when we do, it’s for a few days at a time.  I am very thankful for FaceTime, though, and often wonder how missionaries and others moved from home to…… Continue reading life with littles
