Another Snowy Weekend...

We have had sooo much snow this year
we decided to take advantage of it
and spend another weekend
up at Sundance.

Blythe hanging out in the snow cave that her cousins built

Me feeling like I was sledding
 a thousand miles an hour
(bobbing and weaving through the trees)
going down our homemade luge.

Fearless little Smith

 Dre paying homage to the Olympics...
in sticks...

It's awesome being so close to the resort.
We just fix the kids mac and cheese
and head down for  grown up time
(and the perfect burger)
at the Foundry Grill...

I Made it Monday...

My friend Corinne
picked up this awesome fabric for me 
while out notion hunting.
She thought I would love it
she knows me well...

 the sad thing was that
 the fabric store only had
fat quarters left...
What to do,
 what to do?
Make a corsage pin of course....

I looked high and low for fabric
that looked like a sheet of music...
it's nowhere!
 While I was at the craft store
I found this cool set of
rubber stamps

and decided to make my own
music sheet fabric...
I just stamped  right onto some cream muslin
worked like a dream...

I made it Mondays...

Red and pink are such great colors...

they get even greater when they're together!

I made this little skirt for Sibley.
I usually add ric-rac, ribbon or some sort of embellishment 
when I sew... 
I just love this fabric so much
I decided to let it speak for itself...
It's probably saying
"yeah...I know I'm cute!"

I Made it Mondays...

I made this little lapel pin
out of felt, embroidery floss and lace.
I wanted it to look like a sweet vintage Valentine.

I heart Valentines day...

It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like (two months after) Christmas...

let me explain....
It is a very big undertaking
 to get Christmas down...
and it's a little depressing
if you ask me.
While the house looks clean and organized after
 all the holiday cheer is boxed up...
it also looks 
I took everything down around the house 
and was simply leaving
 the tree for last. 
It has an insane amount of stuff on it
and really takes a long time to disassemble. 
a few days passed...
then a few more...
then I thought "oh... it's in the corner out of the way, it'll be ok for a few more days"
then before I knew it...
It was February.
I'm seriously taking the tree down

Six I tell ya...SIX!

Yay for my little man...he's SIX! 
Not yay for the momma...he's SIX!
Under five still seems little to me
Like you could quite possibly 
still refer to them as a baby
A big baby...
but a baby nonetheless 
I'm afraid I can't stretch that "baby thing" any longer
He's a BIG BOY now... 

...and I don't like it :(
