Happy 25th Aaron!

Happy 25th Aaron!

Here we are in the

Here we are in the baby sling I made to carry her around in. Although she doesn't look too thrilled now, (I was having camera issues), she does really like it. We baked Aaron's birthday cake in it. We only got as far as cake pan preparation and she was fast asleep.

Hali has started sewing in

Hali has started sewing in her free time at the theatre. She made this skirt. I had her pull up her shirt in the back so we could see all three panels of fabric. Both my girls constantly amaze me at how creative they are. She just made it up without a pattern. She made a tierd ruffled skirt too. While she was home on Tuesday we went to JoAnne's and she bought a Vogue pattern for a dress and the fabric. She told me last night she already finished it and was wearing it. Wow! I think she might be fearless when it comes to sewing. She's fierce!

Speech, speech!

She just started talking, said her peace, and that was it!

I took this yesterday....this is her new jumperoo. When she jumps it makes the sounds. Aunt Hali, Mom and Grandma sure had a good time watching.

I love paper toys. I

I love paper toys. I made this one Thursday evening. It's a perfect little summer scene. And now that we are discussing having a wedding campout I like it even more.

I really think it would be great if the kids could have a bridal tipi. It would make the wedding campout! This is the one from Toast but I found one over here in the states a lot cheaper.

This one is from Vermont and only $222. I like the idea of having Ryane and Scott and their friends camping out after the reception. She wants to string twinkle lights between the tents and have a campfire breakfast. It sounds super!

My first post. I have

My first post. I have a blog. It's a logical step. I've always kept a journal. Being on the web is a bit intimidating. But then I learned I could have a blog and make the settings private. Now I've taken the plunge and I 'm learning something new. More importantly, I have another way to keep the things that matter to me. A place to put the pictures I take, the pictures I find, and the thoughts and ideas that go along with them. I'm really excited about this.
