Iain {8 days}

My nephew joined our family three weeks ago!  He's perfect and sweet, and I can't wait for my kiddos to get to meet him!

I couldn't get Claire placed right next to Iain and then get back behind my camera before she was up again. So this is what I got, and ya know what, I kinda like it too. I'm all about real

 And some quiet time with just Iain. He did sooo good for me!

our grandmother made this bunny so I made sure to include it

I'd been dying to use this bucket, and it didn't work out in my last photoshoot. yay for this time!

Sorry if I've been disappearing from the blog quite a bit lately.  I've been changing a few things around here lately, and now I need to rebalance.  Adding in exercise/chit-chat with friends, adding in more reading time with the kids, and now the house is starting to suffer and free time is limited.  It's been good, really good actually, but it's sooo hard to ever have it ALL under control.  Just popping in for a quick hello!  I'll be back soon with some adorable newborn pics of my new nephew!  =)

Blender solutions!

Kevin came home with this idea he got from one of the sites he browses (no, it's not Pinterest but it  could be from there!): For making single servings, fit a mason jar right on the blender, instead of using the big pitcher.  It's smaller and easier to wash, AND you can drink right from the jar itself!  

I make smoothies all the time, so I'm pretty ecstatic about this easy solution for something I didn't even realize was a problem!  lol
