Renaissance- A new birth, or revival.

Saturday a friend and I took Ella to the Renaissance Fair. The two current sickies stayed home watching movies and napping.

Here is my brave girl on the back of a pony for the very first time. She is scared to death but very focused and intense in what she is doing.

The spontaneous bloody nose came a minute later.

The woman who painted her arm somehow talked her in to allowing a bit of decoration on her face as well.

It was so good to reconnect with my eldest and get some one on one time..."just you and me, mommy...just you and me"...

I'm Still Here- recap of the past 3 months

Life for our family seemed like a complete whirlwind these past few months!

November in Arizona with our awesome AZ family.

December was spent decorating, baking and celebrating.
Then a week in Mississippi with our family there- the girls and I ended up sick as dogs almost the entire trip. More of a real life situation than a vacation but still a good (always too short!) visit.

January- we have JUST fully recovered about a week ago from being sick. Our chickens have started laying eggs and I'm working on getting our home organized (the ultimate never ending project) and re-learning how to sew.

I'll leave you with a video of the girls being their happy selves.
