Shower Curtain

Here is the entry you will see on Monday for the theme "for him" Yep I used Kyler, I know you aren't supposed to use your kids, but I am getting tired of working hard at being secretive, when Kyler isn't even on my other blog so I figured WHO CARES!!!! hey he's partially hidden by that awesome eye patch ;-) At the end I added some other pictures that weren't used. Today when we took the pictures I realized I needed some new curtain hanger things, I went to Target and got these great hooks with fish on them....Can I just say I LOVE TARGET! I decided not to push it with a picture of both my boys. But my kids are sad that other kids get to be in the pictures and never them, so here's Kyler's chance to a bubbly clean kind of shine ;-)

Arrr Matey!

Calling all Captians! Get ready to set sail on the 'bubbly' sea. bring your floaty toys and your wash cloth!

Let the adventure begin for the little boys in your life with this Appliqued shower curtain and towels.

Your little captains will take adventure to the high seas every time they take a bath.

So when it's time to 'swab the decks' they may just listen!

The Gidget Dress

I have blocked this blog from people who look at my profile.... so only those who know me can look at this blog. Because of that I thought I'd post the dresses I made for SYTYC (and because Joel wanted to see them and wont be home for another hoo)

This is what the post will look like for SYTYC, the theme for next week is RETRO. Maricela took the pictures of my friends kiddo's, and they turned out so dang cute. I seriously just love looking at these pictures....The pictures at the top of the post are a couple that I didnt use. I really is no fun only choosing 3 pictures!!!!

Also Maricela has some more pictures, some that she 'aged' on her site Ella's Photography.

Perfect for friends.....

Perfect for playing.....

Perfect for hugging.....

The Gidget dress is easy enough for a beginner. Made from linen, it lightly flows and is the perfect breathable fabric for spring and summer! As long as you are making one, you may as well make three so all the friends can match!

Made from a simple a-line dress. I will show you how I designed and made these simple dresses using clothes you own as a pattern OR by cutting up a cheap pattern to re-design your own.

These dresses have coordinating fabric buttons on the front (which I made with the linen from the dress). This dress also has a simple button down back that DOESN'T use button holes...So if you have been intimidated by button holes, there is no excuse to not make your own Gidget dress!

Kolob, Grafton and other Presidents Day locations...

For Presidents day, Maricela and I took the kids to Kolob to take some pictures...however we didnt think there would be SNOW there! so we went to the bottom of Kolob and took some cute pictures in a field (pictures with red chair) then we headed out to Grafton (I LOVE Grafton) to get a few more pictures...The cute picture of Taran and Kyler was our felony picture ;-) There was this awesome old bus that was red and green and rusty..of course it was behind a little barbed wire fence with a no trespassing sign posted...we quickly snuck over a got a few quick photos by it (Raychelle avert your eyes to the felon part) It was a beautiful day and the pictures turned out great. If you haven't checked out my sister in laws pictures go check them out at Ella's Photography, it's bookmarked on the right of my page.

pink toes

My sister Jess was at our house, and asked if I had ever painted Parlee's no. Truthfully I hadn't ever thought of it, so she painted them, and they looked so dang cute! taking a picture of wiggly baby toes is a whole different story, it's darned near impossible! So here are her cute pink piggies, and a couple other Parlee pics!

Home again

For those who knew...Parlee has been spending the last few days at the hospital with RSV. We are happy to be home again, and just have to report to the hospital in the morning and evenings! We are glad she is doing better...and glad to be home!
