A Printable Menu Planner and Some Other Random Stuff

Wow... it's been too long!  Time flies when you're... crazy busy. 
So here's what going on:

I've got a printable weekly menu planner for you!  It's the one I use.  It also happens to match the planner pages I made for you way back when...  Print it up and get cookin'!

OH, and I would just LOVE IT if you would leave a cheery hello if you are planning on downloading this!  ...or even if you're not... I'd love for you to say hello.  It makes me oh. so. happy.  :)

I've been just lovin' instagram lately...  It has been so awesome during this stage of life with our Lucy Lou.  Being able to do something with one hand that keeps you connected to the outside world when you're a busy mom is no small thing!
Are you on instagram??  I'd love to connect with you... come find me!  @amyjdelightful
These are a few of my recent faves on there...  unlike my blog... I post on there everyday!  Hard to believe, I know. 

Okay, what's next!?

What's Virgil up to... you may ask...?
Well... just today he ate toothpaste, cut his hair, hit his sister with a metal clamp, put soap in his hair, colored on himself with permanent marker, ate out of the sugar bowl.... ummm that's probably most of it :)  But he is ADORABLE.  And he looks like his daddy more and more each day...which makes him super lovable :)

So what's God teaching you these days? 

He's still trying to rid me of my pride, my selfishness, and lack of self-control.  oy. 
On the note of being made humble... I had a really rough Sunday a couple weeks back.  Sunday's are always a bit intense no matter what.  You see my hubs is just recently the lead pastor at our church... so I kinda single mom it on Sundays.  It's very doable, but I feel like I always have to bring my A game each week!  It takes all I've got to get us all ready, get there on time, wrangle the kids while we are there, and keep from looking completely frazzled!!   And still, since Lucy's been born, I think I've "lost" Virgil every Sunday.  I try so hard to keep an eye on him, but that stinker is quick and darn sly! Well, a couple Sundays ago I just broke down at church and cried.  alot.  it was embarrassing.  I missed most of the service sitting in a classroom trying to compose myself and dry my eyes.  Oh, to be humbled. 

I'm also learning how much we need fellowship with Christ and with other believers DAILY.  ...not just on Sundays for either of those!  We are meant to run this race together!  I've been reminded that I need to be intentional about this.  I know that I need to spend time in prayer and in the Word each day... but are my conversations with the people in my life ones that spur them on in their walk with Christ?  Do the topics of my conversations with people reflect Christ in me... or the world in me?   I need fellow believers to hold me accountable and to spur me on...  And you do to!  

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,  not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."  Hebrews 10:24-25

Okay, well that's probably enough...  I'm done rambling, I believe. 

One last thing... I'll leave you with some recent shots of Lucy and me.  I just love these kind of "self-portraits."  She fell asleep while I was taking them... love. it. oh so much.


Lucy's Space Tour and some Projects Completed!

I have some things to show you!  Remember my list of things to do before baby arrived??  Well, I completed most of it...  And I'd love to give you a mini tour of Lucy's "space" (since she shares a room with her other three sisters)!  Let's begin!

First off... between my mom-in-law and me, we made a nice little stack of new burp cloths for Lucy.  I used vintage chenille and vintage sheets... I just LOVE them.   There are more of them.. but naturally about half of them were in the laundry :)

My mom-in-law also made a toddler sized bedspread for Sadie out of the same combo.  And per Sadie's request, she re-attached the fringe edging so that is was extra "fancy".  I think it's just the cutest thing... a kid sized chenille bedspread...are you kidding me??  I wish it was mine!

I Biz-ed the bumper pad for Lucy's crib (it turned out so well!)... it's the same one I used for Elsie and Sadie...  My spectacular mom-in-law made it too.  She also made crib-sized sheets for Lucy and Sadie's toddler bed out of the vintage sheets.  It's like some one threw-up vintage sheets in their room... I love it. 

Well that's about it!  I'll have to show you some of the other projects soon... like V's room and his new bedding.   If you'd like to see more of the girls' room from earlier feel free to snoop around :)



Little Lucille is 2 months old!

Even though it has been kind of a difficult past 2 months, it has gone rather quickly.  And I have survived! 

My window of opportunity is always rather narrow when it comes to taking pics of Lucy while she's awake... so even though these are anything super creative or amazing, they are my girl!
