Turkish Delight

Okay, so yesterday I made some turkish delight. It was pretty much a short cut recipe using gelatin, which some say is a "no-no", but ya know what.... I just dont have the time and these tasted great to me anyway and not to mention Liam LOVED them. I will be sharing these with some neighbors tonight...hopefully they like it as well. (Dont they look just too gorgeous to eat?!?!?) These were Lime and Lemon flavored.

Our Visit to the Aquarium...

A couple of days ago Josh, Liam, and myself went to the NC aquarium at Fort Fisher and we had such an awesome time. This was Liam's first visit to the aquarium and he loved looking at all the fish and what-not. We didnt stay but for a couple of hours, but had a really nice time all the same. Here are some pictures from our trip. Enjoy.

A Ton Of Updates...

Okay, I know its been a little while since I've updated, but my life has been really really hectic lately. We've been getting ready to move with my family, so that of course means lots and lots of packing and even more cleaning. Also I mentioned in previous posts that we were incubating chickens, well about a week and a half after all were born, and then all were dead. Unfourtunatly they didn't make it. So sad. And on that "sad" note, Our chinchilla died. She was suffering from some kind of intestinal problem we think and we tried to make arangements for her to be cared for, but she didn't stay long enough to make it. *tear. So its been a rough/busy couple of weeks. On a lighter note, we all had a wonderful Easter... (too much candy) And I hope you all did too. *Praise Jesus* . I wish everyone good health and mellow vibes. Peace.

**News Flash**

After doing lots and lots of research and having a conversation with my husband for almost a whole day on the subject. I can now officially say that I am against circumcisions. (Yay!!) I didnt know any better with my first son, but as far as any future sons my husband and I may have they will NOT be circumsized. I wont let what others say stand in my way!!

My crafty little projects...

Here are just a few sewing projects I have done in the past. I started off trying to sew cloth diapers, but I'm just not that into that anymore. Now what I am doing for myself is making cloth pads. I origninally bought some pads from Glad Rags, but the package that I got just didnt give me enough of the big night time pads (I need the extra coverage...if ya know what I mean) so I decided to trace the pads' pattern and make some for myself (Of course I do not sell these). And they work just fine. But here are some pictures of the past items I have sewn. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(above)...Here is one of the cloth pads I have made.

All of the longies I made using old sweaters.
I had an old Grateful Dead shirt and I turned it into one of my son's cloth diapers. With a space print fleece on the inside.

And here are some wipes I made a long time ago and they are still being put to good use to this day.
