A very domestic Friday & our week in pictures...

I guess I've been a little MIA this week. I'll attach some pictures to show you what I've been up to! Justin and I celebrated our 6th year of marriage on Sunday, his mom's birthday on Tuesday, and we've been hanging out the rest of the week. Nothing too exciting to report on. I've had a wonderful day in the kitchen and behind the sewing machine/cutting table! I made about 12 cups of homemade chicken stock. Our pastor's wife gave us a fabulous recipe and boy do I have some beautiful stock to put away for another day. We had 3 roasted chickens for dinner on Tuesday and basically I threw the carcasses, carrots, celery, onions, salt & pepper (and the rosemary that I stuffed in the carcasses before we ate them) all in a 12 cup stock pot, covered it with water and let it cook all day! It smells heavenly and I just harvested some WONDERFUL (preservative free) chicken stock. I highly recommend you try it. Now, I just have to run to the store for some more freezer containers to fill!

Several weeks ago I bought fabric to make matching dresses for the girls and a daygown for our little boy! :) I cut them all out last week and today I've been working on making the piping and the collars! I'm really excited about them! I'll be sure to post pictures once they are all done... it may be a few weeks at the rate I'm going! Morgan & Paige had a great day playing with Judson and I, of course, enjoyed the company of Tami! Thanks for coming over!!

As you can see Paiger is never far from food. Here's a short 30 sec video from this morning.

Could they be any sweeter? For the record, my two girls heard the voices, came over and made me play it about 6 times. Seleta
