Seeds!

Hello!
This week with it being earth day and all we thought that we would start our garden. well when we got out there it was way to wet to plant anything so we planted inside. our growing season for pumpkins in MD is very short so we thought that we would give ours a head start."Mama eat seeds?" is what we've heard the past few days cause Liam got to plant them.
Here's just a few pix. and one very last one of Baby Joy!

Cloth Diaper fun

About 6 months ago we started on the journey of cloth diapering faithfully.
And at first I wasn't really sure what was going to happen. and if we would go with it.
So now that I'm looking back over the past 6 months I have to say that I'm enjoying it.
Yes, there is much more wash to do, and more time spent. but it so worth it.
Here is just a bit of what I've learned

Did you know on average you will change your baby 6,500 times!!???!! Did you also know that the cost on average for a disposable diaper is around $.35 cents. Do you know what that means? you will spend an average of $2,275.00 on disposable diapers for your little one. Now think about the savings you will have by using cloth diapers. a good cloth diaper stash is about 30 diapers. So even if you spend $495 on diapers you will have a TOTAL SAVINGS of $1,780.00 !!! WOW!!!

Did you know it takes 500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose in a landfill? that means the diapers you wore as a child are still there taking up space. Throw away does not mean go away.
After reading all of the above, ask yourself this. Would you want to wear anything that contained such harmful chemicals? You don’t wear plastic pants, why should you precious little one ?

Anyway... so I love it now and so do my babies. see for yourself ! :)

Lanna wearing one that Aunt Christa made her.
Diapers or Hats?

Even Otty. Liam's Otter got to wear one too!
My latest find was a Bumis Super bright. and also another one, but I can't remember the name of it.
I'm so excited to try them on Lanna. I'll post some pix when they come in.
If you love to cloth diaper too, I'd love to hear from you!

Have a blessed day.

Resurrection week!

Spring has sprung here in MD. And as the saying goes “April showers bring May flowers” and man are we getting the rain. Oh well I guess that’s all part of spring! So as promised I have an update for you.
But I first wanted to share just a bit about what going on in our lives. Lets see… Jon is in …Full spring time ministry. He just finished preaching at a revival in a local church, it was so refreshing for me to sit under him and gain new truths if Gods word. It’s so amazing to me that you can read the Word one day and not really have a verse stand out to you, but then read the same passage a week later and the Lord uses that same verse that you read last week to so speak to your heart. I’m so Thankful for His word and how He uses it to mold and shape our lives.
Liam is in… Full time play mode. He is in to sounds right now. Anything that he hears he has to tell you what it is. like yesterday he heard a rooster and he said “Oh hear me Turkey” it was so cute.
Elhanna is in to… EVERYTHING!!!! She is on the go now and so anything that is on the floor is free for all with her. She is a tiny, quiet, sweet little girl.
And Me, I’m into…Full time just trying to keep up with my precious loved ones. Oh, but I did get to go to a National Scrapbook day scrap the other day and work on our albums.
Oh it was so fun! And believe it or not I got like 8 pages done. I as so excited to get that many done! I have Lanna’s book updated to last fall.
Well I guess that’s about all that’s going on with us.
So without much more said here’s the pix from the past few busy weeks. Enjoy!

Lanna on Liams trike! " Like this Sissy!"

Here we go, It only lasted for a min. Lanna got sacred!



Getting ready got Resurrection week was fun this year, Liam learned a lot.


He loved helping with the egg trees.

Just inside our front door.
On the door!

Easter Morning was great too! Liam was so excited for it to be "Nester" I'm not sure where it came from!
Here's just a few pix form that morning!

Liam checking out his basket!



Lanna looking at the basket,

I just love this one. Too precious!

Happy Resurrection... He is RISEN and coming again!

Daddy!

This little post is in honor of My sweet Hubby and the Best Daddy ever!
This weekend was our ladies retreat and Jon kept Liam while I was gone.
Laim had a blast and was so excited to tell me all that they did while I was gone.

A few things( our whole list is so long that it would take up our whole blog so we'll just do a few!) that we cherish about Daddy!
He is a godly leader for our family, He is a Man of God's word, He loves me for who I am,
He spends countless hours with our children, he loves to play pillow party with Liam & Lanna,
He does family devotions with us each night, He is our DADDY.
We love you Jon!


Thank you Father for our precious gift form you!
Have a great week!

Is life a blur?

Good Morning!
Life at the Moorman home has been a blur this week, everything form spring cleaning to trying to make Easter outfits for the kids.
It's seems as though there is never enough time in one day to get all that I have planned done.
Owell, there is always tomorrow!
Here's just a few pix from our crazy week!
Laim found my Sharpe in my sewing basket and thought it would look good on his skin!

About once a week we have a " Pillow Party" at our house, the kids just love to romp and play and this week it's been rainy, so it was a great way to use up some of that extra energy!
Liam gettn it all ready!

Lanna is still learning how so get Bubby!
I think she's had enough!


Oh, I forgot to share with you I won a Skeeda shopping bag http://www.skeeda.com/
