Cooking with Chelsey

Cooking is something that I don’t necessarily enjoy.  I’ve always been a bit picky, and grew up in a real small town with few, and sometimes no, restaurant options.    Since Eva was born, I’ve tried to come up with new recipes and we have added a few into our rotation.  Maybe it is the pregnancy […]

New Moon Party

On Friday, November 20, I held a New Moon party for the teens.  We met at my place for goodies and refreshments and then went to the movie together. This is what it looked like: It was lots of fun and apparently this automatically means I am throwing an Eclipse and Breaking Dawn party when […]

Beatrice

A little while ago I made this sweet little doll for Eva.  I’d made a couple of cloth dolls before but they were from a pattern.  I drew out the pattern pieces for this doll myself and designed her dress myself too!  She is 100% Chelsey.   Eva just loves her and pronounces her name Beer-atrice, which […]

I blame Halloween.  I blame pregnancy.  But the truth is, my sweet tooth has recently spiraled out of control. When I gave up sugary sweets for Lent this past Spring, one of the side effects that I noticed in myself was more mental clarity: my emotions seemed more stable and I was able to think […]

#4 – Patience (Fruit of the Spirit)

The last post in my Fruit of the Spirit series was April 28.  The entire idea behind the delay in posts was to test your patience (coughcough).  Some of you are very patient, while others… not so much. I have the feeling that this post will mostly be a confession, rather than an expression of […]

It’s a Boy!

In case you didn’t know, we found out at 18 weeks, and then confirmed again at 20 weeks that baby number two is a boy!  We are both very happy (Peter especially) and I feel so blessed to have one of each.  If we decide to have more children after this, the pressure will be […]

Feelin’ Good.

I’m not going to lie, I was a bit of a downer in the summer.  That’s probably why I didn’t write at all, I didn’t feel like saying much about anything.  I just sometimes get into little funks, I think it happens to everyone.  Down in the valley, I guess, if you know what I […]
