Let it Snow! {first snow of 2012}

What an odd winter it has been! Well, we got our second snow of the season & our first of the new year.  Liam LOVED it...much more than last year.

The nesting stage is on!

Must be that time again.  I have an insatiable need to organize, clean, decorate, etc. (I'm about 28 weeks along).
 The rooms that have been hit the hardest by my cleaning frenzy is my "studio" (if you can call it that, more like Michelle's play room), Liam's room (which will eventually house the new baby), & our bedroom.
In my studio, I've now organized all my backdrops & props, bought a wall mount system from some of my larger backdrops & have ordered a few new vinyl backdrops in wider sizes.  So far only the white backdrop has come in.
Here's a visual-

...and I promised a friend that I'd post some maternity pictures.  I've been dying to try out my new backdrop & I have no one to photograph, sooo... don't make fun of me Lacy if I'm a dork :)

New Years

This was how we spent much of New Years Eve.  Outdoors!  It was a beautiful 60+ degrees outside & Liam was loving the fresh air dirt.  He literally sat in this spot of dirt near our front porch playing for about 2 hours.  We will be getting the boy a sandbox this summer.  And some landscaping :)

And on another note, I didn't realize until I was in bed sometime after midnight & Chad brought it up, that I hadn't made any new years resolutions!  To be honest, I'm not sure that I still have any good, specific resolutions in mind.

A wise bishop once suggested that we resolve to change something we can actually accomplish.  He said that too often we dream up lofty goals, only to let ourselves down.  So my resolution will be something doable.  Simple.  By small & simple things are great things brought to pass, right?  Thinking...

In the meantime, enjoy some pictures of my dusty, dirty little boy.
