We've been enjoying having Auntie Elise and Uncle Tyler being in town. It's been a year since we have seen them (which was far too long, can't wait for them to be closer!). Their trip is almost up, they're heading back to Maine this weekend. We are going to miss them a lot!

Nico's thinking about crawling.

Our Happy Chickens.


I'm pretty sure this was at about 8 in the morning. Elio just loves watering our plants.

I'm happy to report...I've started a new blog! It's called Olivia Renn, it's going to be all about, my crafting, cooking and sewing adventures. I'm still working on the layout and page design so bare with me...

As usual we've been busy. My brother Tyler and his wife Elise are here from Maine, my grandma is here from Montana, my dad will be here tonight, and Richard will be here tomorrow.

Besides all our wonderful visitors, I have been busy with the MOMS Club, we just changed offices. I'm now going to be the Administrative Vice President. The MOMS Club encourages the officers to change positions every year, so all the members have an opportunity to be involve. Right now, I'm just glad I'm not in charge anymore, it's fun, but can be a lot of work.

Nico is all over the place, I will leave him on one side of the room and next thing I know, he is on the other. He is starting to sit up too. I have to make sure he doesn't fall over, but he does a pretty good job all by himself. He is starting to eat baby food more often, and Elio loves feeding him.

Kyle had a Grappler's retreat last weekend. He had two intense days of working out. Kyle had the opportunity to work out with Nic Gregoriades, who came all the way over here from London. Nic was the recipient of the first ever black belt awarded by Roger Gracie. I think it was one of those, once in a life time kind of experiences.

We also went to a wedding for our friends Shanna and Mike. The weather couldn't have been better, and the wedding was beautiful. A lot of our friends were there, so it was nice to catch up with everyone. Also it was our first all nighter without both boys (Thanks Nonna & Nonno). It was nice to go out, have a few drinks, and sleep in the next day.

Feeling a Little Crafty

I've recently been inspired by some of the blogs I follow.
I LOVE doing crafty things, it makes me happy ♥

This started as a plain white tee.

I've had these gold shoes for a while, and I wasn't very fond of them. I need a pair of shoes for a wedding this coming weekend, so I changed them up a bit.

Voila they're brown!

Next on my list: tie shirts for the boys, a tree shirt with colorful leaves, a cape for Mr. E and hopefully a sewing class.

We've been busy lately. Nico had rice cereal for the first time, he's been loving the walker, and wants to play more and more. Elio's been busy too, he had another birthday party. It was just a small one with our family, but he had lots of fun.

Nico in the Backpack. He loves it!

Nico's first time eating Rice Cereal.

Elio's new train set. He plays with it pretty much nonstop and hates sharing.
