Our little Zoe

Well its about time! My blog decided that it wanted to work for me again! I have no idea what its problem was. But hopefully it won't happen again, I don't know anything about computers, so they have to solve their own problems! But I thought I would do a post about Zoe. She is 6 1/2 months now and the cutest little chunker you have ever seen! She is sitting up and loves when big sis plays with her! She is our cuddler and can put up quit the scene if she thinks its time to be held again! I don't always get much done in a day. I am trying to learn that its OK! All to soon my babies will be grown up! I am trying to learn to cherish the moment and live in the moment. Not wish I could be cleaning the house, baking, sewing, reading, etc. But enjoying the moment that the LORD as blessed us with!

This little daughter of ours, is just like her daddy!
Its amazing how many times the oldest acts so much like me and the little acts like Daddy!

Big sis makes an amazing babysitter!
Have a blessed week with the LORD!

      I will extol thee, my God, my King; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and praise thy name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and His greatness is unsearchable. One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts! Ps. 145:1-4
      Oh what beautiful words that speak straight to my heart! I thank the Lord for using Davids words and life speak to us! So many times the Psalms speak exactly what I need to hear, for whatever I am going though in life!
      Right now I am learning to be patient and wait on the Lord's perfect timing! Because I know His timing is ALWAYS perfect and ALWAYS better than what I imagined! But my self says "No you want it now and this is how you want it! Don't be content, you deserve more than this!" And then Gods word comes ringing in my ears! In whatsoever state you are in be content! Think on things that are pure! Be submissive to me by being submissive to your husband! Don't become bitter and resentful. Become cheerful, patient, be kind, be humble, pray without ceasing.
     For the Mama sets the mood for the household! You children are watching you and learning how to treat others! Especially my girls, for they will one day have husbands of their own! I want them to have learned all those traits because they watched how their Mama treated their Daddy! And if they never marry that's how I would want them to treat God and their Dad! More is caught then taught!     May the Lord continual to give me the strenght for every moment as only He can!
Ps. I am having troubles with my blog uploading pictures! So sad, for I have much to share!

Oh how I love my 18 month old!

Still laughing...she was in no mood to sit still and give me a smile! I did get a few cute smiles, but mostly she is making a face, turning around, getting off the chair or pulling her dress up over her head! My Sophia is so full of life and I love her soooo much!

Protesting much?!

See?! She can look cute!
I totally new it!

Love... In The Form Of Laundry

Little girl dresses, man jeans, scratchy towels and bed sheets...
Flapping in the wind and smelling of sun-kissed lavender!
I love just about every house hold chore, but laundry is my favorite! I believe every chore we do is a token of LOVE towards our family! Jesus said," In whatsoever you do,do it as unto me!" Col.3:23
Sophia loves to help hang it and then run though it giggling! Oh how that laugh is contagious!
Makes me run and get the camera and capture the moments for tommorrow my daughter will be hanging laundry for her own family!

I learn alot from my eldest...
pure joy, for every moment, is the one she is always teaching me!

How I do my laundry day...
1. Sort laundry the night before, that way as soon as I get up I can get it going.
2. Put a load in the washer and add a scoop Charlie's soap and 3 drops of lavender essential oil. ( I use Charlie's because I have found it to be best for my cloth diapers. I was having a problem with them smelling like wet dog. So I washed my washer out with viniger, stripped my diapers 3 times and now use a detergent that does not leave a film in my washer. I also use oregano oil instead of lavender. Its a germ killer. Before I used Charlie's soap, I made my own and used that for the clothes and Tiny Bubbles for the diapers. But my homemade is what was leaving the film. So now I use just one kind and its not to expensive, especilly when I am saving my cloth diapers in the long run!
Fabic Softner is hard on your clothes and another expense to your grocery bill. I used viniger, it works but I didn't like to bury my face in the laundry, using the lavender oil, I want too:) And lavender is a relaxing oil.
3. I either hang my laundry on the line or on a clothes drying rack. Depends on the weather or if I can get outside to hang it up! I try not to use the dryer to often. But some days it just needs to be used! Its one of those days I am tired and the girls are needing me every other second and its the fastest way to get the job done! I do put the towels in the dryer after they come off the line, my family likes fluffy towels!
Happy laundring! I am off to wipe tears and hold my babes!
So no time to spell check:(
