The Week Thus Far In Pictures. (mostly)

It was R's birthday and naturally he wanted to go as The Doctor. (a combination of the 10th and 11th Doctors.)

 We had the lovely pleasure of trying authentic Jelly Babies!

We also enjoyed some time outdoors. Something we hardly seem to do these days, so it was nice.
(above, my littlest smiling his absolute hardest! What a stinker face!)

 Here's R on his actual birthday. He sure is looking more and more grown up these days.

Adventures in Homebrewing

This past weekend my husband was at it again, brewing beer with fellow homebrew enthusiasts at our local homebrew meet up. This meet up took place at Draft Line Brewing. The newest local brewery here in our little town.
It's so interesting to watch the whole brewing process. A lot more goes into making a good beer than most people think. Josh is a pretty darn good homebrewer if you ask me. (he even tied for 3rd place in a local beer compition!)

Here are a few shots from the day. 

Gratitude Sunday (on Monday)

Today I'm joining Taryn over at Wooly Moss Roots for 
Gratitude Sunday.

In Taryn's words: :
G r a t i t u d e * S u n d a y
"{Sunday's heartfelt tradition. A time to slow down, to reflect, to be grateful. A list of gratitudes.}"

Lately I've been thankful for: :

* A warm and cosy home in this frigid weather we've been having lately
* Easy to prepare meals while feeling under the weather
* Yummy local (hard) cider! 
* My husband's many talents including making our own homebrew!
* watching my children use their imaginations
* Night's spent watching Doctor Who (any other Whovians out there?)
* Having a little more energy to devote to my shop
* A beautiful new journal that my lovely husband gave to me for Christmas, now to just find the time to write in it!
* Above all God who keeps giving me the courage to face each day, even when I'm having a hard time presssing forward.
