Love Them!

Why I haven't been blogging

I've taken a leave of absence in blogging. I guess I have just needed to focus on other things. I have been doing a lot of sewing lately. Last month Jeremy's mom came and showed me how to put together a curtain for my kitchen window. Then she left me to my own creativity (and at times frustration) in making curtains for our sliding glass door and dining room window. For $30 in material this is what I came up with.

Not too shaby for a beginner....or at least that's what I think. I still have to hem the dining room curtain, but I am not sure how long I want it.

Terrible Two's

This little guy has given me a run for my money lately. Ahhhh....But I love him.

Grandma Olsen's Birthday

We had a great time giving Grandma Olsen a birthday party. Elizabeth planned it for a month. You need party hats, balloons, birthday cake, candles and presents for a good party.
Trish is a 20 year cancer survivor, so to honor her, I made a bracelet. Each bead represents one of her grandchildren.
Daddy and Elizabeth made her a birthday cake.

Andrew made a birthday card for Grandma, but took a break to taste the cake batter to make sure it was okay.
Elizabeth wasn't going to be left out.
We had a fun time preparing for Grandma's birthday. Elizabeth is already planning Andrew's birthday.

The kids brought me flowers today. It was out of the blue and quite a surprise.
