Our New Lawnmower

Aidan loves riding the lawnmower. He literally falls asleep riding this loud thing. When I say loud, I mean loud. This is a Steiner lawnmower and my husband bought it from a guy who bought it at a state equipment auction. This mower has been great, and well now, we use it to soothe our little guy to sleep when he fights it. One little sidenote, we did add the head gear to block the noise from his little ears. How cute does he look, chubby cheeks and all.

Changes happening at the house, Again

I am constantly in a decorating frenzy in this house. With my job, I come across lots of neat and unusual items to decorate with, and let's face it, I have a hard time getting rid of lots of these items. I am on the move to clear lots of my stuff out, and I have been succeding.

Bathtime in black and white

Aidan loves to bath but mostly just drink the water, notice in the picture. What do you say. I figure he is not the 1st baby to do this, and surely won't be the last.

Got Yogurt!

Posted by Picasa
I have to say, Aidan loves yogurt, especially peach. Lately these days he wants to feed himself all the time. I really don't like for him to since he is so messy, but sometimes you just have to, especially when they look so cute at it, like this instance, just after bathtime, eating Yoplait Peach Harvest yogurt, his favorite!

A New Beginning!

Over the last few months I have left my job as a medical transcriptionist to purse a lifelong dream of owning my own shop. I am now the proud owner of a little shop in downtown Louisa, Ky., called Urban Farmhouse. We opened our doors in December 2009 and have not looked back. I spend most of my time finding unique and unusual items to bring into my shop, and now recently, we are online, You can find many new and 1-of-a-kind items here and items added weekly. Feel free to check out my shop blog at

Over the last few months Gage has turned 13 and now Aidan is 1.

Here are a few pics of what we have been up to lately.
Gage is growing into a handsome young man and will start the 8th grade next year, just 3 more years and he will be driving a car. Aidan is a feisty little fellow with a temper. He has been walking since 10 months and get along wherever he wants. We love having him added into our busy life. He brings us joy to no end.

Wow, long time since blogging. That is how it is being busy as a beaver. They say idle hands are the devil's playground, well no playground here. So much going on in our life lately, Aidan walking everywhere since January 2, 2010, at 10 months, that was 1 big event and me opening my own antique and home decor shop on December 5, 2009. I am still transcribing, just on a part time basis now. This post has no pictures attached since I am doing this from the shop. Hopefully I can get some posted next time around. The shop is doing pretty well with the 1st week of January being slow, but really to be expected, lots of snow and freezing temperatures here. I actually love being a shop owner; however, it is very time consuming, but after Aidan gets a little bigger he can come here with me.

Seasons of Change

The seasons are changing, the weather is growing colder. This morning the frost was very heavy. It seems this all falls right in with things in my life at this moment. I have not blogged for days, not really wanting to, no desire to, knowing I need to get current posts up for what the baby is doing, but no desire. Do we lose desire in our hearts? Do we fall? Yes, I think we do. I have been reading many wonderful spiritual blogs and reflecting. Reflecting on myself, my life, my relationships, and I am not liking my reflection. I am standoffish toward people, not really wanting people to visit, not really wanting to work. Maybe I am tired, maybe I am weary. Mostly trying to figure things out in my head, needing to draw closer to the Lord, seeking him and asking forgiveness and praising him for his blessings that abound.

Life as a mother is a hard life but a wonderful and truly blessed life. You tend to lose yourself as many of you know. There is no time for you, and you do miss that but still love your children. There are always the what ifs, the not knowings, the guilt, the anxiety, the stress, the sleeplessness and worry. Worry is a big player for me. I am a worrier. The Lord teaches us not to worry but I again do not take heed. I find myself struggling every day with household stuff, work, spending time with my husband, with my older son, keeping all things in balance. I am not sure there is a balance. Lately I am overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with all my duties. Am I trying to do too much. Probably so. I am exhausted by the time the day is up, often forgetting to pray at night or even falling asleep while I pray. Have I learned to just relax, I am trying. Have I learned to trust the Lord that all will be okay, I am trying. You see, I believe the Lord has taken care of us more times than we can imagine. I believe that strongly. I have examples. But still, I find myself worrying about things. I keep telling myself, the Lord's Will will be done. But here I am again, creeping back into this state of mind again. I know the Devil knows my weaknesses and he plays on them. I pray for strength, I pray for guidance. I know the Lord is with me. I seek him. I call out to him. I ask him for forgiveness. I must trust in the Lord with all my might.
