Reasons I am SO Glad It's May
1. April felt like one LONG month.
2. Mother's Day is in May and we are grateful for a lot of amazing moms/women in our lives (our moms, birthmoms, grandparents ...).
3. It's our Aunt Beth's bday. (And she is a RAD Aunt.)
4. It's getting warmer--and we have had one LONG winter. Holy crap it has been a lotta colder days in a row. For a lotta months in a row. BRING THE HEAT.
5. Cinco de Mayo is in May(o)!
Hope you are having a great May, too! XOXO, Dawn
PS: This week's photos are a collage of my current mania wth sewing and trying to be like Eve on Alaska's Last Frontier, our awesome neighbors, and Elder Meehan's week in the mission field.
|Our neighbors built this incredible Mini-Library. Cool, right?|
(PS: it's a company! You can register your library with them--or even buy the library via them.)
|I am making my own vanilla.|
(Like I said, my current obsession with Alaska's Last Frontier has something to do with this.)
|Our friends left us these pink lemonade cookies--which were 1500 calories per cookie--|
so I ate 2.
I blame my dad for this sweet tooth.
(Maybe I need to just own some of these obsessions.)
|I watched a short video last week on how to make our kids a skirt with a yard of fabric ...|
so of course I had to make them. Okay, a few of them.
|I got this coconut oil because it was on sale and it reminded me of Ozzy from Survivor.|
Funny how Survivor is such a major imprint in my life.
|Lu and Zu are growing cucmbers from seed. Man, seedlings are fragile.|
Metaphor coming ...
|More skirts. |
(I haven't sewn in years and it has been so fun.)
|Elder Meehan and a neighbor |
(he's been fortunate to live near this man for a few months--in two different transfers.)
|Elder Meehan cleaning a church building (he has always loved vacuums--since he could walk).|
|Elder Meehan and his companion doing some service (again, machines--he is in heaven, I'm sure.).|
|With a family he's met in Indiana. He loves them.|
|Service day with his companion (who's from Alaska--so I bet he knows the Eve from Alaska's Last Frontier. Hahaha!)|
|Visiting Sister B.|
|And being well-fed by the kind people in Indiana.|
