Date with Elsie

The weekend before last I got the opportunity to take Elsie out on a little date, just Elsie and Mommy. We went shopping together at JcPenneys, where she was very good even though I was trying on clothes, and then we went to Panera for dinner.

She was a delight. We were able to "talk" and sing together without interruption. I think she had a good time too. These pictures are good examples of just how wiggly she can be!

Hi, my name is Jaime and I'm addicted to . . .


If you haven't heard of it yet, check out my link below:

Part of the problem is my inability to find appropriate clothes for Abigail in the stores where I normally would have bought cheap, everyday clothes for her like Target, etc. She is already a size 6 or 7 and most of those clothes look too "teenage" for her . . . being only 4 years old. So I feel justified in purchasing things from Zulily because they are age appropriate, on sale, and just sooooo cute!

Help me!!

Precious Pics and New Business

Doesn't it seem like the days just fly by? My kids keep getting bigger and bigger (and cuter and cuter!).



Not much excitement around here (except see previous posts about crazy babies). Just lots of cooking, cleaning, laundry, diapers, hugs and snuggles with my babies.

The only news to report at this time - and part of the reason for my busy life and limited blogging - is that my husband is starting a new venture and business with his dad. I have many emotions surrounding this new thing in my life.

(I am so proud of my husband. I am in awe of his brain. How did he come up with something like this? He must be a genius! I am tired and worn from the long hours he spends working on the project and away from us. I am excited to see where he might take his company and I know he is doing it for our family, which I appreciate greatly!)

So . . .without any more rambling on my part, check out

The name of the company is actually Schechter Energy.

He is very busy at this point because he is unveiling his product at the Dayton Home and Garden Show in two weeks. He has been very busy working on the product, brochures, business cards, banners, and so on, for that show.

We're hoping for some interested customers!!

Fork Dream

Here is a recount of my very odd dream last night . . .

I was eating a potluck dinner (lunch) at my childhood church. I turned around suddenly and accidentally stabbed my husband with my fork in his gut. It punctured him. After an examination in the kitchen he decided to go ahead and participate in a triathlon.

I was there watching him race and was so worried about him because of the injury. We watched and watched and he never came around the bend of the race. Finally my sister showed up and said "Andrew wants to know if it still counts as a completion if he drives the rest of the way". (ha!)

That was it.

There are so many way to interpret that dream so I think I'll leave it alone. I'm just glad I was worried about my husband in the dream. :)
