Family Pictures

So, I've been promising my mom a family picture for about 8 months now and I am just now getting around to it. My excuse is that it's been too ugly outside to get cute pictures, but now I have no excuse because it's just gorgeous outside so we finally set up a time to take them. My wonderful friend Lindsay offered to take them for us, and even though she says she's just an amateur you can see by these photos that she knows what she's doing. They turned out pretty fantastic and I'm so excited to finally be able to display my beautiful family on our walls. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

My Excuse for not Posting

So usually my days consist of cleaning the house, doing laundry, playing with Mylee, and cooking, but for the past three weeks I have neglected all of my motherly duties and have just been sewing my guts out!!! It all started a few weeks ago when my husband told me the hospital was doing a craft fair and he suggested I do a booth. I have never envisioned myself as actually sewing enough to sell anything but I thought if I could convince my good friend Lindsay to go in on it with me then I would go for it. She and I gladly accepted the challenge and have been working nonstop for the last three weeks on dresses, skirts, bows and headbands.

Finally the day of the craft fair arrived and I think over all we did pretty well. We sold everything very reasonably and there was a pretty steady interest in our stuff. It was so much fun to watch someone get excited over something I actually made. I hope we get the chance to do it again, it was definitely worth it!! Thanks to Lindsay for all her hard work and for putting up with me.

Oh, and Mylee started swimming lessons this month, thanks Grandma, and she love love loves it!! She can't wait to show grandma everything she's learned.
