We went to Costco last night as a family. We met Mark out at the one that's closest to his work and had a great time. We like walking around looking at the incredibly big boxes of everything and anything.........did you know that you can buy a casket at Costco? I just saw that for the first time last night. Sort of odd if you ask me, but I'm sure it's a great deal. Last night we had 5 things on our list and we left with only 3 of the 5......that's pretty good for Costco (the other two things were not there.) Usually it's the other way around. I would have 5 things on my list and I would end up leaving with 10 things. We are really trying hard to stick to a budget and use what the Lord has blessed us with. It has been a challenge but we really feel that God is working on us to live simply and humbly. I love looking at my pantry and seeing how I can make dinner with the things we already have. It makes it fun and knowing that we are doing what God has asked us to do makes a so-so dinner seem like a gourmet meal.
"He has given food to those who fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever." Psalm 111:5

Being a stay at home mom is as good as you make it. I see you, always having the best time! And making a gourmet dinner is so much more rewarding then going to a fast food place.
I think back to when you were in high school and you didn't even know where our kitchen was!
(ha ha)
Yes, you will be rewarded and it looks like you have several right now.
Love Ya, MOM

Forgot to ask you about your Mei Tei? Is that how you spell it? Where did you get it? I bought one off Ebay after my last was born it works but is pretty basic. Yours is so cute. Glad to see you carrying him that is so special...

I'm so glad you are back online and love the housebound story....I wont tell LOL. Now you can see pictures!! The carrier that I have looks like a Mei Tei but it has buckles like an Ergo. It's called a Beco. I just love it because I can quickly just put Levi in it and go because all I have to do is clip two buckles. Love my diaper bag purse too and yes it's a Petunia. My hubby got that for me for mothers day since I never had a diaper bag.
