Paper or Plastic? Definitely Plastic…

Because it is just so versatile:




Plastic grocery bag... $0.00

4 yards of lavender yarn bought at a yard sale... $0.01

Your five-year-old saying, "Mommy I made this kite all by myself!"... priceless.


  1. WOW!!!! your little ones aren't so little anymore. I didn't even recognize Doodle. yeah that's def the way to go. both fun and priceless (literally). can't wait to see you all. It's only hours now till we leave for the airport. See you soon.

  2. they also make great parachutes for dolls or stuffed animals
    and - if you can believe it - supersuits; simply poke 2 leg holes in the bottom of bag & pull 'straps' up over your shoulders :-)

  3. Julie,
    It's been a while since I have been around here. I truly enjoyed my visit. The kids look like they are having a great time enjoying the simple things in life!!

  4. Julie, it's been awhile since I've had a chance to visit your blog. Your children are beautiful. I just wanted to tell you that this morning when I saw the picture of you with the twins, holding both of them at the same time in the sling-while preparing pies from scratch- was such a blessing to me. I've been having a real fun day of homeschooling my "too smart for her own good" twelve year old. My three year old has decided that he would be tired today. And we have a new dog. I just kept saying "Lord, give me the strength for this today." I'm 13 weeks pregnant, and the thought-"Am I crazy" keeps coming to mind. I was struggling with my little Isaac so much that I actually laid my hands on him and started praying out loud. Praying for the peace of Jesus. Anyway, things calmed down, Madison has gone on with her day, and I had a minute to sit down and read a little. It was such an encouragment to see your smiling face. Thank You.

    Your Friend,

    I couldn't help feeling proud when I saw those sweet twins, feeling that I had a small part in bringing them into the world. Love YA Sis!
