Aubrey's Art and our pool trip

For Father's Day this year we made Papa some art work. They came out so stinkin' cute!!! Aubs had a great time painting with paint brushes, sponges and her hands. When we came home she wanted to paint another. I laid Allyson down for a nap and Aubs and I got to work! 

We painted with some purples and greens, the same colors as in her room.  We painted the first layer purple and let it dry for awhile. 

We came back with some green and some splashes of pink paint .... and 


A perfect painting for her room.

She is a rolling machine. She is getting close to getting up on her hands and knees. She can do each seperately but hasn't put it together yet. When she does figure it out I'm going to be in trouble!! 

Yesterday we went to Papa's house to go swimming. It was going to be Allyson's first time in the pool and I was pretty confident she'd like it. 

Don't you just love their matching suits??

The water was pretty chilly and she wasn't too sure at first. She did start to warm up to it though. 

Matching cover ups ... 
these girls are just too sweet and they really really melt my heart. I love seeing the love that they have for one another. They are going to (hopefully) be great friends as they get older.

Happy Father's Day!!

Happy Father's Day!! 


I really really love to sew!

These are the girls Fourth of July dresses ...  pretty cute eh? I really enjoying making them. I enjoy the whole process. Picking out the fabrics, cutting the pieces, sewing it all together and trying them on my girls. Aubrey really likes waking up and there being a new dress hanging up.

I really would like a new sewing machine but sadly it's not in our budget. I was thinking about selling dresses as a way to save money towards a new sewing machine. What do you think? Would you or anyone you know be interested in an adorable dress?? It's for a good cause.

Or would you like to buy me a new sewing machine??  :) A girl can dream right? *sigh*

Yee haw!! 

What a great day it was. Thank you to those who came and celebrated this special day with us!

i heart sewing

I made Bug a dress to go with Aubrey's birthday outfit. I just realized I didn't take any pictures of the dress alone or a picture where you can see the dress on her. I'll have to take one later. Now that the birthday dress is done ... time for the next holiday!

 Fourth of July! I already have the fabric, it's washing as I type. Guess what I'm going to be doing tonight

I'll be posting birthday pictures tonight or tomorrow ...
