Peachy king!

It was pioneer week so we participated in some pioneer activities such as picking our own food, making our own ice cream, and churning butter. Thanks to courtney, the girls even looked like pioneers with their cute little bonnets.

Little pants

Well, i have been sewing for the first time in my life and i think i am in love! All I can think about is what i could make and i just want to buy every fabric in sight. It all started with these little pants... my friend courtney taught me how to make them and i have seriously made like 10 pairs. These are the pants and the onesies i made for my sisters new little baby AND the cutest thing about them is that they are reversible! In the picture it is the back of the pants you are looking at, because the bum is a different color of fabric. The pattern is found in a book called Handmade beginnings.

We had a lovely 4th of July this year...we went down town to check out the festivities and the kids played in the water fountains at the park and they played on some bouncy toys they had set up for the festival. Then, after the kids took a long nap we had a BBQ at the pool and then we had our own little fireworks show with the office. Thanks to grandma we had some fun accessories for our 4th of july pictures!
