What we've been up to

A close up of my Mr. Potato Head

Yes that is a rubber snake mouth on her chin. Why you ask...have you met her dad?! Enough said.

Parker enjoying the cupcake decorating.

Kate loving the cupcakes at her preschool Valentine's Day party, Sitting by her best friend Lily.

Lauren learned how to make newborn baby hats in Activity Day Girls. She made this one on her own. She was really proud of herself, and so was I.

Lauren wore these same jammies when she was Kate's age. Lauren used to LOVE these jammies, now Kate LOVES them. Thanks Nana!

Mr. Potato head

Last week I got together with my sewing group (Melanie, Lyndee, Amanda, and Morgen) and this time our project was Mr. Potato heads. They were a major pain to sew because there were such small pieces. But it was a lot of fun to get together with good friends and try something new.
We usually start our projects pretty early in the morning in order to get finished in time to take the kindergartners off to school, thus I look like I just woke up.
Unfortunately, the kiddos don't even love to play with it. Elle will for a little while during church once she has gone through all of her other toys, and is desperate. Oh well.

sweater dress

A couple of months ago I made Kate a sweater dress out of an old adult sweater. I was so happy with the way it turned out. It was a lot of fun to learn how to make. And best of all, Kate actually likes to wear it! I just kept forgetting to get a picture of it.
