Towel monsters ?

(an old, old post but thought i'd get it out anyway.)

There are two little girls under those towels.  Your guess is as good as mine as to what they are doing. :-) 

What's been happening with us?  
The weather has been AMAZING ! Warm, sunny, beautiful, warm, wonderful.  It has been great to be out with lighter clothing, enjoy the sun and be able to run and play.  We have been outside playing ball and bike riding. Playing with the dog and running of some of that winter pudge. :) It rained today, so most of the snow is gone and the chickens are out pecking and flapping their wings like they have been cooped up way too long. 

We welcomed Lexie's mom and dad and niece G for about 24 hours.  We had a great visit, CW and G had a great time hanging out!  My mom helped me for the 110th time to make bread and she also made a delicious stir-fry. 
Lexie have started training for the relay in May. The Fargo Marathon is the 18th of May and I am part of a 2 women, 2 man relay.  I am excited even though running the race is the exciting part, not all the training. 

The Mr. helped me clean out the chicken coop, not a pleasant job but it needs to be done. And I was all geared up to do it all.by.myself but he volunteered and did a great job! 

Lexie is also staying busy sewing for EcoChic and support our friends in Africa. I always have something new I'd like to sew up and I actually now am going have a few new items coming for May. I am excited to create with material and work with wood and a ban saw!! 

The girls love being outside and this mama needs to find some ideas to do for them. It's one thing to be out but it's another when I can actually learn something while hanging out.  

One other item we got crossed off the list was our basement being organized!  We put up shelves, moved around the seasonal items.  Moved the 'train table' to where storage was, we now have a larger space to work on DIY projects. Items got thrown our or sent to a thrift store too!  It just looks so nice, for me being a person who likes orderly spaces.  And I also got to do some decorating else where in the house!  

In between all if this, I find time to read my study each week.  Jesus, through Middle Eastern Eyes.  It's an amazing book!  If you want to learn more about the parables of the bible this is a great book.   

Phew, no wonder I feels like I haven't posted in forever. We have been busy with this or that... 

I'll keep you posted, March is going to be a great month!  

Until Next Time,
Lexie ><>
