A New Niece

My sister had her 5th girl today!! (Aparently I make boys and she makes girls) She has had a very long pregnancy and has been praying to get this baby out for weeks, so we are so excited. Baby Margaret Nicole weighed 8 pounds, 9 ounces, was 21 1/2 inches long and is adorable. I just had to post something because I think especially in this picture, my sister and I look a lot alike! Love you sis! Can't wait to meet Margaret when we come to Arizona next month.

My Boys are getting so Big!

Kyler turned 5 last week and I just can't believe that my first baby is getting so big! We had a birthday party with some of his friends and guess what theme Kyler wanted for a party? Nothing else will do but a Police Officer Party! So we played cops and robbers and had a great time. We also had a family birthday party on Sunday with family and it was a lot of fun. Kyler is so loving and sweet and is such a great part of our family. I love you Kyler!!
And yes, that is supposed to look like a police car cake, but I did it too late at night and mixed two colors it's not my best work for sure, but still cute.
Super boys! I made capes for all the boys. Mainly cause Kyler and Brayden always want me to tie blankets around as capes, so I thought it would be fun to make them ones. And I couldn't resist doing one for Keaton as well :)
Keaton is 7 months old TODAY! I cannot believe it has been 7 months since he was born. He recently started rice cereal and loves it. He is still catching up to his actual age, but is getting there faster than I think Brayden did. (although Keaton is still really small!). I don't want him to change at all. He is sleeping through the night and a happy, mellow wonderful baby. I just want him to stay this way forever and not grow up so fast like my other boys. I am excited to be nearing the end of RSV season so we can start to take him places. He is doing so well! I love you Keaton. I love all my boys...most of the time! :)

And Keaton has just started to suck his thumb on occasion. So adorable, but not something I want him in the habit of because it's so hard to break!! He's just so lovable!I'm a lucky gal! :)

Wonder of Wonder, Miracle of Miracles

What's this, you ask? A wrinkled shirt? Yes, a wrinkled shirt that has been sitting in our laundry room for several MONTHS. Yes, that's right, months. Why, you ask? Because I really don't like ironing and have to be in the mood to iron. Did I pretend to like ironing and actually be good at it before I got married, you ask? Yes, actually, I did. Why would I do something like that, you ask? To impress my sweet and cute husband (who was my cute and sweet almost boyfriend at the time) and show him that I was definetly marriage material. Obviously it worked, but to my sweet and patient husband, I think he has had years of disappointment in this area because I really have trouble ironing his shirts when he gives them to me. And he would iron them himselves if I hadn't told him one time that I was better at it...WHY did I say that?? So this is to you honey- thank you for being so sweet and patient to me and for being a loving husband who doesn't yell at me when I take three months to iron a shirt!! :)) KISSES!!
This is to prove I actually got out the iron and ironed his shirt...

Finished product. Now don't judge because it's obviously been a long time since I have ironed...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

So I truly believe I have the most adorable boys in the entire universe! Sorry to those I am offending, but aren't my boys stinkin cute?? Brayden naturally changed out of his shirt after this picture and put on his football shirt, because he wants to wear it or his BYU shirt EVERY DAY! Soooo, at least he put this one on for a picture! :)

My new passion...

So I really have thrown myself into making these adorable diapers/wipes cases. I have let my creative juices flow, and love spending my free time figuring out good pattern/color combinations. It is a new passion! So now I have made 6, and have given out three to several of my friends having babies. But I am still making more and am even thinking about selling some to those interested. We'll see...but for now I am having fun!

So this just shows how much fun I have been having!!
This shows an angle of how they open...

This is the back of the one I made for my friend Christine...the one I made for my friend Michelle I somehow deleted after downloading, so I will re-take and post soon...

This is the front of it, soooo cute!!
This is the back of the cute girly one I made for my friend Kate!! (who by the way realllly wants to have her baby as soon as possible!)
This is the front of it, and may I just say this one is my FAVORITE!! Maybe its because I am surrounded by boys that I am in desperate need of some girly things, but I think it is so stinkin cute!!

Since Utah has very long winters, and I have babies that have to stay inside during the winter...I have plenty of time to do projects around the house. Now, that doesn't mean that I actually do them! (ask my husband), but lately I have been a little more motivated in trying to get some new projects done...and I must say I am quite pleased with the results... So first we have curtains I made for the sliding glass door that goes outside. We've had verticle blinds there for a while, but they just did not do anything for the the curtains really compliment the other colors in the room...and dress it up!

Okay, so I can't fit a calendar in my kitchen anywhere, and we have a huge laundry room near the kitchen, so I decided to make some good use of the space by doing a magnet board and putting the boys backpacks underneath. It's simple, but cute! And now I have my calendar easily accessible!
Okay, this is not something I made, but rather something I recieved from my sister whose sister-in-law makes these. They are diaper/wipes holders. Made from a huggies wipes case that you put in your diaper bag. So one side opens to the wipes, and the other side has a pocket with clever!!! I decided to try and make one myself so I can start making them for my friends who are having babies...So this one is mine that was a gift...I love it!

And so here is the first one I have made! It is my trial/error one. it turned out pretty cute I think!! And now I am going to make a whole bunch more for my friends having babies...

And finally I painted the wall with the fireplace on it and we added some complimentary decorative pillows and other accents in the room. I love the color and how it turned out. it totally changed the entire look of the room. It's been fun!
