That is the best word I can use to describe how Ive been feeling the last few months. Overwhelmed. In the last almost five months, the six of us (my sister lives with us)plus the dog, two cats and guinea pig have moved into our new house, had three birthdays, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas, my hubby started a new job the week before we moved in, and of course all the everyday things of school and kids activities
All last year when we were renting I was looking forward to owning our own place again so that I would have lots of projects to do and share with you all, and now that we have that and I'm doing a bunch of projects, I feel I don't have the time to share them on the blog! Ironic isn't it?
I guess what I'm trying to say here is that I really appreciate and feel so thankful for all of you who still check in to my sporadic blogging and I want to promise you I haven't forgotten or got bored of i,t I am just trying to sort out and organise my time better to have time to take care of my family and myself, do projects and share those projects on the blog :)
I'm so looking forward to this year of 2014 as it already feels like a bunch of my dreams are finally falling into place and I can't wait to share with you all the fun along the way.
Later this week I'm hoping to show and share with you the outside of our new place and all the fun and crazy plans we have for our new little piece of land.
Thanks again and have a great week!

Way back in November I showed you what colors I painted my girls rooms and mentioned that we wanted to do something on those newly painted, bare walls, either a frame collage or banner or something fun like that. I knew Nyla would be getting a few posters for her room for Christmas, so I put off doing any hanging of stuff on those walls until after that big day. So, that's what we did! A few days after all the Christmas hoopla settled down we got down to business and hung some art.
Some things you may notice, this girl is obsessed with cats! Also, that thing dangling from her ceiling is a dream catcher with a small stuffed animal attached to it :)

Hello strangers! I hope you all had a lovely holiday, we enjoyed lots of family time and relaxing together time (partly because we were all sick and partly because we just
wanted needed to relax.) Yesterday I spent most of the day cleaning,sorting,organizing as the New Years organizing bug hit me full force. Do you get that feeling? New year, new you? Well maybe not *new* but scrubbed up anyways. :)
It doesn't feel like a new year here on the blog until I close out the old one by sharing some post Christmas pictures, so bear with me as I relive it a little bit.
Here are the kiddies in their new Xmas PJ's setting out cookies and eggnog for Santa. I can't believe how big they're all getting!
