After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

KCWC Day 3

No fun pics to share today.

But that's OK, because the kids and I had such a fun day hanging out with friends today.  I haven't felt well so we've been a bit house bound and we were all aching to escape the house today.  Good friendships and fun revived us all.

I did, however, raid my friend's pattern stash while I was at her house.  She has quite a little stash of patterns ALL in Lissy's size.  And I found EXACTLY what I was looking for!  A raglan sleeve (my current obvious obsession) tiered dress.  I cut it out this evening while watching a movie with my mom and sister.  My mom helped me pick out the fabric from my stash......a piece of fabric she bought for me before I even had kids that I've just been too afraid to cut into because I wanted to find just the right thing for it.  Well, its officially cut up and I can't wait to get it on the machine and see how it looks. 

Tomorrow's another busy day playing with friends so if I have no new pics to share, I won't post.  But know I'm still taking part in KCWC.  I putter away each day.  I have 3 pj pants almost done for Kian, and 1 pair annoyingly near completion for Logan, in addition to the dress I cut out tonight.

 Oh how I love KCWC!
