Fraying at the Edge Book Review

In case you can't tell, Amish books are one of my favorite genres. I love that they are clean, uplifting and I feel like I learn a lot about a culture that is otherwise foreign to me. Of all of the "Amish fiction" authors, I think Cindy Woodsmall is my favorite, and she did not disappoint with her new book "Fraying at the Edge".

Infant and Pregnancy Loss Day 2016

To all of you who are aching for the babies you have lost, I hope that this song will give you some peace and comfort today. A friend shared it on Facebook just after one of my miscarriages and it touched my heart deeply. Thank you to Craig Aven for sharing his love and musical gift with each of us!

Pumpkin Carving Tip

If you're carving pumpkins in the near future, be sure to pull out your ice cream scoop! Ours worked perfectly to pull the string goop away from the pumpkin when I was cooking one last year and I'm sure it will work perfectly for carving jack-o-lanterns too!
Use an ice cream scoop in your pumpkin!

Toddler Fun: Shape Game

We are learning about shapes constantly right now and my 2 year old insists on me drawing them whenever there's a crayon nearby, so I thought she would enjoy this little shape game I quickly made up:
Toddler Fun: Shape Game
Just cut out multiple shapes from construction paper and trace them onto a white piece of paper. We stuck with circles, triangles and squares.

Baby, Baby! review & giveaway (ends 9/29/16)
My 2 year old LOVES books! She can sit and look at books for ages every day, so I was excited for the chance to get a new book for her to read and add to our collection. As soon as Baby, Baby! arrived, she insisted on reading it.

We read it again today repeatedly, and though she's not a baby anymore, she is certainly fascinated by them. She loved pointing out all the objects in the book and had fun with the mirror at the end. I like that the end of the book is a reminder of God's love for everyone, especially our children.
