For Rachel

Here's a few pictures from the shower for Caitlin and Rachel Cunningham.

My cake was a bit frustrating as I spent several hours working on a fondant which ended up unusable. Late Monday night I made another one which worked but took several tries to get right. Turned out quite well though and I think it will be fun to try more in the future since I now know what I'm doing.

My mother always sets a lovely table.

The Mother-to-be of Rachel Lynn Cunningham.

Lots of ladies!

What's yal's thoughts on the new layout and back round? Like it, or should I go back to the black and white? Give me some feed-back here. I've been playing around with a lot of different ideas and this will most likely be the first of many, any votes for it?

Maid Marion

So, I just hopped over to Hannah's blog and saw the stuff on the Maid Marion event. I think everyone knows how much I love medieval clothing and history so this is right up my alley.
Check it out! The picture in my sidebar links to the site.

The Upcoming School Year

It's coming faster than desired yet at the same time I always look forward to the more orderly way of living and getting back into studies.
As the summer is starting to wind down a bit we have been seeking to get back into a schedule, so that we can (hopefully) be well settled into things by the time the school year starts.With Caitlin starting her online college program and Jillian and Hayley being the only ones left in regular school with my mother things are looking to be rather different from previous years. I think the biggest change will be for me, as I am not in school and right now it seems will be (I hope) moving into Caitlin's position of caring for things around the house and garden, since she will be spending much of her time studying.
Although I would like to do some further studies myself, mainly in nursing and midwifery, right now I do not feel that that is where the Lord is leading me. As we were sitting down as a family discussing things the other morning and everyone was laying out what their plans were for the fall I did not really have anything specific. Because of this and everything that everyone else desires right now, I am feeling that my area of learning and growing is going to be focusing more on running the home, which I have been learning for a long time, but now will be putting it more into practice.
My "goal" for this upcoming school year is to seek to serve my family in the home, rather than pursuing my own desires. My prayer, and I would ask for your prayers as well in this area is that I will grow more in love and service to those who are nearest to me. I have found that my family, those I am closest to are usually the ones that get the most pushed aside in whatever is going on in my life. As I seek to learn more skills of running the home and what it is to care for a family, I hope that it will make me love them and appreciate them more and more.

I'm almost done with my time of imprisonment, yay!
Meaning I am just about out the sling and all the restrictions.
Played Wii for a while last night and it felt wonderful to actually use my arm.
Anyway not much else new, can't wait see all you guys!

A Day In The Life

So because I wasn't able to get everything done before my graduation I'm still doing school each morning, or at least I try to do it most mornings. I'm very close to being finished, having just a little bit of human anatomy and a couple essays to write.
This is my science notes, I love doing science and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the human body.
And I usually listen to my ipod while doing any studying.
Here's my lovely sign in my windowsill.
My bed is often quite tempting, but I still prefer it to doing school downstairs with all the other things that go on.
The keys on my hopechest, old keys are something else I have always loved.
Well, this is, obviously, me.
And my converse sneakers. :-)
