A Much Needed Update...

So I thought I should update...lol...this is jus a summary of important things that have happened in the past couple months...
Last thing I posted (before Josiah's birth story) was about the shed...and finding the serger...
well shed is finshed has been for a couple months now...mom's stuff has left the house completely and is all in the shed - which lost a door to wind a couple wks ago so is now held shut for the winter with boards...the door needs to be fixed better to work properly but for right now it's protecting what's inside and that's what matters...
we've been living in the farm house since October 4th...it's great to have space to spread out and things I can organize MY way...the kids are loving the playroom that is finally sorted out completely...lots of toys left here some going to my brothers and some to my Daddy's but some also went "gone for good" as they were broken or the kids never showed interest in them...so why keep them around? we donated them...
Josiah was born in Nov...that was a long ordeal that I already wrote about...
Thanksgiving was fun! it was great to spend time with family without the drama that had been going on...
I did find the serger! it works great! I've put it to good use since I've found it too...sewing up pants for S (20 pairs) some shirts for Baby D (15) some shirts for J (15) and pants (15 pairs)
I've been sewing up some small fleece covers for J now...don't use the serger for those yet as I need more practice before I go trying to do elastic on a serger...when I'm done J will have 15 fleece diaper covers and 5 PUL wipe-clean covers...plus inserts for them...
things I still need to get sewn up: bigger shirts for J he's outgrowing the 3month shirts I sewed up for him already...S needs some longer pants as the 5T pants I sewed up are now 2inches too short...she hit a growth spurt lol...I also need to work on some pants for Baby D as I'm expecting him to outgrow what he has very soon...
still need to finish organizing the house...1 closet in my room still is piled full of boxes to be unpacked...I'd also like to make up some curtains for the house...blankets help to keep the cold out but don't look as nice...
life has settled into a routine, everyone is de-stressing from the months of waiting...Christmas is jus around the corner and I can't wait!
