We are making progress!!
 This was the view yesterday as you rounded the corner by the baseball fields on our street... Do you see that?!?!! Right there on the corner??
 WE HAVE A FRAME!!! Well, at least part of one... We're missing a second story still.
 But its progress!! Visual progress! Considering the foundation was poured just last Friday, And this was on Wednesday afternoon! Crazy.
 This is what my garage looks like. That's the girls bed... I'm almost done painting. Then the distressing. Man, I can't wait to have my garage back. I hate not being able to walk in there.
 This bed is a labor of love. I do LOVE it in white. It is going to be absolutely stunning when it's done. Add some ruffly bedding and a cute crystal chandelier and their room will be magnificent. 
 As if I didn't have enough going on, I have been sewing like a mad woman...

 Yep... That's a dinosaur dress. You wish you had one don't you?
 These pants will be the majority of LaLa's school clothes. She loves to help me cut them out and serge them. They are super comfy, So she will actually wear them, They take about 20 minutes start to finish to make, And they only cost about $7 in fabric.

I know these are messy, I was sewing them at midnight last night and was half asleep.

I have had a few questions about the size tags that I make. Here is the tutorial I was inspired by.  {Is there anything she doesn't think of?!? I just stitched a number on each side of the word so that the kids could pick out which size was theirs. {They aren't all readers yet.}
 I bought my ink pad online on amazon, But I saw them in Michaels the other day on an end cap. {You have to get an ink pad that can be heat set on fabric.} I may go pick up a few more colors with some 40% off coupons. And Joannes carries the cotton ribbon in the "by the yard" section of trims. I bought like 5 yards and used a coupon. So it was really cheap.
I went to a Relief Society meeting on Tuesday and this is what Granny Gar had the kiddos in. Aren't my little superheros cute?! I can't tell you how much I love these little ones. I love that I can stay home with them and cuddle them and make cute stuff with them and for them. I love that I can take them to the pool, I love that I get to see the funny things they do and hear the crazy things they say, and that I am the one who gets to experience this little life of ours with them. I couldn't imagine missing these short few years that they are little. We have eternity to know them as adults but only a blink of time to savor the moments that they are children. There is nothing more I would want to be doing than spending these precious moments with them.



  2. I love seeing all the things you make, but what in the world are the kids doing while you are sewing? As soon as I pull out my sewing stuff my kids are all over me, "I want some water" "She/he hit me" "I'm bored" "I'm hungry" "Charlotte needs a diaper change" I mean the list goes on and on, what do you do to keep your kids busy so you can do all your projects?
