So I had the funniest thing happen tonight. We decided after dinner since it was still light outside we would stop by the park. We were there for about 10 minutes when Kate decided to take her shoes off. This is how the conversation went after that :

Me: "Kate, put your shoes back on please."
Kate: "No"
Me: "Kate, if you don't put your shoes on we'll go home."
Kate: "Uh-ah"

So from that point my stubborn and oh so hard headed little girl, threw the biggest wall eyed fit. Kicking and screaming the whole way to the car. We get to the car and this is how the conversation goes now :

Me: "Kate, stop it NOW."
Kate: (Screaming at the top of her lungs in my face) "Don't you put me in that car, you STUPID LADY!!"

I was laughing so hard that I had to turn my head and have Derek come and strap her in. 

Seriously, priceless moments of being a mom

We are taking Tyler to Disneyland for his birthday next weekend and decided that Buggies should go with us this year. So what better excuse to make her an outfit. I am actually really ecstatic how it turned out and fit her. I was going off the measurements in my head. Anyway here are some pics of the final project!!!

Hoppy Easter

Easter Kisses All Around

Sweet little Katie Buggies

I have gone SEW crazy ....

I think I have gone a little nuts!! Well considering I have spent the last 2 weeks sewing like a mad woman. I think Matt (Erin's husband) might think I may be moving in since I am there until 3am every time we sew. I am so happy with what I have accomplished thus far. Erin and I were talking last night, and 3 weeks ago I would not have thought that I would be capable of coming up with the things we have done. It really is making me such a happier person. Creating something that my girls get to wear, and an occasional thing for Tyler too. I don't find myself sitting and watching TV at night anymore, but searching for tutorials on how to do the next thing. Below are the latest shirts I have been working on and completed last night. I am going to have the kids pictures take in them and surprise Daddy with his father's day gift. Until next time ....

I'm Addicted .... To Sewing!!

I have found a new hobby and I think I am OBSESSED!!! 

I have started sewing!! For those of you in my family that are thinking, wow she is sewing , it really is a lot of fun. I just love the creativity and the feeling of MAKING something on your own ... well not really on my own, but for the most part. I have started searching the web for patterns and tutorials for pillowcase dresses. (For those of you who don't know know what they are .... NO they are not made out of a pillowcase!!) The fabric, once sewn into the tube, looks like a pillowcase. I am having so much fun matching fabrics and coming up with new ideas. I recently made one for my good friend Alison for her baby shower. I was pretty proud of how it turned out. Seeing as I hadn't touched a sewing machine since I was in the 7th grade. The last few nights Erin has been over and we have been up until 1:30am!! Seriously I can't walk away. Tonight I finally had to force myself to walk away and turn off the machine. Until tomorrow when I can get back on and start on my new project. Here are some pics of what I have accomplished in the last few days .... 

This was for Lyla ... 

This one I made for Kate ... start to finish on my own!!!
