Our picture spot

Sometimes I have to capture those really cute days
even if she is still super sleepy
but she loves our picture mornings on these rocks
and later I will love looking back at the photos
I love my pumpkin!

Love a girl who can wear a hat

Just because it's cute

need I say anything?

Everyone should have pictures like these

But she is just so cute
and loves the camera
and making silly faces
with crazy hair
and this strange monster thing
and i love them all

a different version of extreme sports

A couple weeks ago
ok, maybe a couple months ago,
Connor and I spent some time playing outside
We swung in the hammock
and threw some horseshoes
well, kinda threw
just not far
We practiced on her scooter
i love the helmet
and did rock climbing
finishing with a flying rocket
it was a good day
with no injuries

Birthdays and Boyfriends-already

After Christmas
(yes, I'm jumping around)
we celebrated Hannah's birthday.
Where Connor played with her friend Jack on the stairs for over an hour!
He is such a cutie (good job Michelle!) so I am pleased she has taken a great liking to him!
Jack: "Connor, your so pretty!"
Connor: "Oh Jack, Stop it!"
Connor: "Oh Jack, you're SO funny!"
Connor: "...and dreamy!"

and yes-i made up my own dialogs for all these pictures

The cutest assistant ever!

Let's call this the catchup game!

so bare with me!
Connor is finally getting big and old enough to help me bake
And we made gingerbread men for Heidi's annual cookie exchange
Connor played with this same piece of dough the whole time!
But had a blast.
*for some reason I can't grab and move my pictures-so they are a bit out of sorts...but so am I so were all good!

The Peep found my Rock

Apparently I have been living under a rock since Christmas-
but have gotten a lot done under that rock!

But before I catch you all up on the last couple months-
here's a quick 'peep' into what we did today!
I appliqu├ęd this shirt last night for Connor to wear to Madison's kindergarten class today.
And she posed so well for all my pictures!
Playing peep-a-boo in the bushes

And here are the Easter favor Connor gave to her favorite 'peeps'!
Check out this blog for the tutorial and pdf header card.

So cute....So dollar friendly....and So simple!

Pillow Talk

This Christmas was great-A lot of people had special requests for gifts that I could make! SO Great!
My little sister requested pillows for her couch.
Love all the colors. And I made them removable with buttons on the back

The laptop Sleeve

I made a couple laptop sleeves for a friend and decided to whip up a couple more this weekend!
I originally made this one for my younger sister...then the older one pointed out it is "so much more me!" and kept it for herself!
I used a heavy upholstery fabric for the outside, and fleece for the liner.
Green is more Heidi!
It's ok, because I got to make this one for my other sister...
Chunky cord for the outside with the white fleece liner. And it is much more Mel!
This simple guy is for my nephew Noah.
Denim on the outside and a camo fleece on the inside.
Lastly is Hannah's!
She loved this bright colored cord print with purple...perfect for her bright personality!

These were so simple, but so cute! I only wish I had my own laptop to make one for me!

MIA-But still crafting!

I made these chalkboards for Christmas gifts this year. So Simple...and So Fun!
My sister showed me the idea from here
She admitted I should make it for gifts because she wanted I did!
