you will also notice the title of this blog says heart AND art. yes we did eat chicken hearts for dinner, courtesy of this recipe. we really like the hearts but not the gizzards as much. and yes, if you are dying for this recipe…i will translate it!

He makes all things beautiful

By Uncategorized One Comment

not a lot of sleep was slept last night.

 

we didn’t all wake up with a smile.

 

no one said life would be easy.

 

but that doesn’t mean it can’t be an adventure.

because He makes all things beautiful in His time.

have a blessed and wonderful sunday today…even if you didn’t sleep last night. 😉

 

 

legos and dragons

By Uncategorized No Comments

we are just starting to delve into legos. truth be told, we are staying away from character or movie sets and sticking to generic-use-your-imagination sets. i can’t wait to add this set to our collection.

 

then mcdonald’s went and got how to train your dragon toys. TEN different dragons. i had never succumbed to mcdonalds toys before, but now i have. we still need two more, i confess.

 

do these kids come any cuter? i would argue no.

family day {sick kids edition}

By Uncategorized No Comments

we try and do some sort of family activity every weekend…and i thought it would be fun to try and blog about each one. but of course last week found the girls sick as could be. addy was sicker on friday and feeling better by sunday. mercy, you can see is still pretty sick and basically only got dressed and ready for an hour or two in the late morning. still we managed to get some smiles.

rain and sun

By Uncategorized One Comment

the weather is still crazy around here. pretty much everyone agrees. we haven’t really had more than a handful of “hot” days…gosh, we haven’t had very many warm days either! and the rain? seriously. so much rain this spring. i don’t know a lot about crops but while you might be thinking “you shouldn’t complain, rain is good for the crops!” i have actually been told by a few locals that there is too much rain for the crops this year. who knew?! these pictures are just a few phone pictures i snapped while walking to our team house to work. i ended up going completely child free which somehow became a nature walk of sorts. it had been a beautifully sunny day, clouded up and dumped water for about thirty minutes and then gone back to being sunny. it was gorgeous to say the least!
