The past two weeks have been a real adjustment for my daughter and I . Katie went back to work and I have been babysitting Addison full -time while still trying to work part time myself.
I definitely have been worn out by it but I think we are getting into the groove of things.
It's been hard on my daughter too. She misses her baby but she knows that she has to work to help provide for her. And when I look at this picture, I am reminded of just how young she still is.
She is such a good Mommy and mature beyond her 20 years.
And I know I am biased but isn't she just the cutest little thing! Addison turned 4 months old yesterday and she is such a good baby! Her sweet smile keeps me going when I am all worn out.
Last weekend we had a belated family Christmas with my side of the family. Pictured above are 3 of my six brothers! Jeff, Matt and Mike. Jeff is a spitting image of my father at that age .
Packer fever is gotten to an all time high this week.
The whole state of Wisconsin is excited about the game . They have even added green and gold lights to the dome of the State Capital in Madison.
And a fan near us spent a lot of time sculpting this baby.They certainly weren't hurting for the snow to build it with. It's gotten so high there is hardly anyplace left to park it.
Now my hubby Dan, who is a rabid Packer fan is super excited! He will be glued to the TV most of this weekend. And my step-son Jacob will be right beside him. They have a blast watching the games and it's good Father/Son bonding. This will be a special one, since the last time the Packer's went to the Super Bowl Jacob was only 7 years old.
So that's what we've been up to around here.
I hope all is well with my bloggy buddies and I will be around to visit as much as I can!
Happy Week-end and of course Go Pack!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
