Student Log Cabins!

Inspired by our quilt block of the month, I decided to challenge my high school students to make one! Enjoy the photos!
Oh, I should add made completley from scraps in my room-I was impressed!

Showered with Love

So sometime during the hectic week after Christmas my sweet Sisters in law threw me a baby shower. They helped me get excited about having a boy. It was simple and elegant. I felt very loved. We had a delicious meal with a homemade salad dressing I'm still craving. Great food and dessert. Then we spent time crafting! We decorated some onsies and made some bibs for our new one as well as Tasha's new one. I love having such a nice extended family. Even though we are all spread out FL, MI, AR etc, it was nice to let the ladies have an evening together. I think it demands a repeat! And if Josh had to have so many brothers, I'm glad they married well!! Plus Katie and Liz and Kathryn are great. Thanks everyone, and I love you!!

Meet Ave

Ave is my little California niece. I spent some time with her over Christmas. She is a very typical two year old with some strong opinions of her own! I was glad she warmed up to me after a while. I'm sure it was hard traveling so far.
I was so bummed when I found out I was having a boy, that I let some of my girly girly stuff come out on her. I enjoyed making her this cute skirt, and Katie decorated a shirt to match. She loved it. I also had her name in the gift exchange and picked out a floral, girly raincoat that she seemed to like.
Hopefully they can visit again soon.
