We thank you for taking the time to visit our blog.

My husband and I are a young, growing, Christian, military family. My husband is a Captain in The United States Marine Corps. I am a former Elementary school teacher. We are first time parents to a beautiful little two year old boy, with twin boys on the way! I am a stay at home Marine wife, who loves to bake, cook, sew and craft! I enjoy being a Domestic Engineer. The purpose of this blog is to document the story of our life and adventures as they take place.

We are honored to be serving our country and ask for prayer in our upcoming adventures. We have been blessed tremendously, and thank God everyday for all he has given us!

Making Baby Burp Coths

Yesterday I went shopping for burp cloths. I noticed how expensive the nice ones are. I thought I would try my hand at making my own. I bought five plain Gerber cloth diapers for five dollars a pack. I took them home and embellished and embroidered them with all things baby! What a fun afternoon! Now I'm obsessed! I plan to make little Robert a burp cloth to match almost every outfit. :) Loving my machine!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My first attempt. An R for Robert.

My next one. Because every baby should be a right baby! ;)
