October update

Lots to catch up on ... photos to follow

I recently posted this entry on my craft blog -- apologies for the duplication, but I've got to run after Naomi, who just overturned a box of puzzle pieces in the hall...

There is a tremendous backlog of photos that just yesterday made it from my camera onto the computer. Who knows when I'll be able to sort through photos from the past two-plus months, but I just might have some spare time in the next few weeks.

By way of a short update, all my creative energy for the past three months has been poured into coordinating a wedding for a very dear friend. Oct. 9 was the big day, and I'm happy to say it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience -- from the behind-the-scenes coordination and crafts to the moment when the bride walked down the aisle to her groom, and even the tear-down and cleanup went smoothly (in an exhausting way).

Many, many loving helping hands from my church helped bring the plans to fruition, and we all came away from the experience feeling that this is the way it should be. It was truly a community effort, and I was blessed by so many friends' talents and their willingness to make the wedding celebration happen...

I hope to share more along the way through photos of the decorations and craft projects I snuck in during the coordination process. Sometimes I felt like I had to literally sneak into my craft room because it was about three months ago that Naomi started walking. And climbing. Everything. And if she wasn't climbing onto one of the craft tables, she was emptying drawers I wasn't prepared for her to reach. Or knocking something onto herself.

So we've spent a lot of time outside and at parks. This little climber is amazing to watch, especially because she has such sweet expressions on her face as she's determinedly taking every Post-it off the tablet or upending a jar of pencils...

Andrea,
