new BABY!!!!

One of my adopted daughters, Katie, had her baby last nite!!!! Katie is one of my Danielle's best friends all thru school!

INTRODUCING....

LOGAN JAXON BAUMANN-STEMPEL!






Maddy had some fun playing with one of the old toys from their room here at our house...(the old toys will be moving to my new studio in the new house!)







She was busy for over an hour redoing all the abacus beads..into patterns!

and speaking of simple toys..(proving that old adage that the kids are happy enough with the boxes that the toys come in....

Maxx had great fun with one of my plastic storage boxes...

the box became...

A NEW SHOE AND/OR SKATE...


A MASK...


A DESIGNER HAT...



We found a house (duplex) that has a total of SIX BEDROOMS!!!!

...and it has begun to sink in that we are indeed moving...as the for rent went up in front of our house we are in...



the studio is getting packed up...and it's going into the boxes all organized...woo hoooooooo....that's a GOOD THING! but it also is bringing me to the realization that i have lots of stuff...and NOW with having no job..(except being nonnie to the babies...) i am downsizing things that i can part with...(some with gritted teeth...) I will be selling off all my somerset magazines, cloth paper and scissor magazines etc. etc. etc...
