3 years ago this minute...

...we welcomed our daughter, Leah Gabrielle, into our arms and our hearts.

Happy Birthday Gabs!

Holy snow!

Michigan has been hit with tons of snow this year- record breaking amount in January, in fact. We're expected to get another 6-8" tonight on top of the 6" we got last Saturday and the 6" left on the ground before that.

Well, you know what they say... "When life hands you snow, sled!"

More storage for Leah's toys.

At some point last Fall, Haley and I decided that Leah needed more organization for her toys. The toy box I made was great but many of her smaller toys were left on the floor... and tripped over... and lost... She needed something else.


Unlike the past couple of projects where I searched for ideas online, this design was original.  I knew I wanted removable storage containers but couldn't decide which kind.  A trip to Joann solved that when I saw these round, canvas bags with handles for easy carrying.  After bringing them home, I began drawing the plans with the canvas bag dimensions as the starting point.  The rounded bags came together nicely with the square edged design.  Time to build!

...and we're getting more snow.

While I'm shoveling in the front, Leah and Rayla are playing in the back.  They're just so adorable!
