We had a fun morning yesterday picking blueberries. I loved watching the kids eat more I think them they picked. I took so many pictures that day! If you want to see more you can look on facebook :)
The best part was spending time with friends!!!

Little Miss has found a new love for dancing. She got a dance outfit for her birthday from meme and she loves to wear it around the house and be a "rina"...

She also makes this cute face when she finishes a dance. Next time you see her you should ask her to make her dancing face and this is what you will get....

While shopping for dress shoes Little MIss found these and I couldn't resist the "so pretty momma" then the " ohh momma thank you" as I looked to see the price. Lucky for us both they were on clearance :)
She wants to wear them to bed and everywhere she goes. She also decided that her Grandma should get some too. I bet you could find some while you are in Vegas grandma :)

Saw this idea on Allie Edwards blog and decided to give it a try each monday. We will see if I can keep it up :)

Outside my window...a gentle breeze, a few clouds and my tomato plant growing

I am thinking... Will my house ever be as organized and clean as I would like it to be?

I am thankful for... calm nurse at Poison control-long story I will tell you about it another day when it seems funny to me and not so scary. Don't worry however as of right now little Miss seems to be doing just fine

From the kitchen... made Brian homemade ding dongs from scratch for fathers day. YUMMY! and they should be even better the next when I have all the right supplies :)

I am wearing.. jeans and my favorite purple shirt

I am creating... nothing, surprising I know but after the last few weeks I am taking a little break. I will do some photo editing today and finish a blog for church

I am going.... no where- thank you Little Miss for making us slow down today but really could you have thought of a better way

I am reading... 90 days with the Savior by Beth Moore but it seems to be taking me more then 90 days :) I also just finished reading Handle with care by Jodi Picoult

I am hoping... My in-laws have an amazing 35th anniversary! they deserve it!!!

I am hearing... whining from one little one and gentle snore from the other

Around the house... toys, clutter and more toys

One of my favorite things... iced nonfat chai latte

A few plans for the rest of the week: clean out the kids closet, play-date with my kids favorite little girls, organize at least one room of the house :)

Here is picture thought I am sharing... because it makes me smile, not only because the mask is to big but because big brother doesn't share this with very many people but on this day he laughed so hard when little miss put it on. not just a little chuckle but a deep belly laugh that got me laughing so hard too.

At the park

We had so much fun today playing at the park. I must admit one of my favorite thing was taking pictures of all the little ones. Except somehow Miss MG missed the camera. Her brother however was timid at first when it came to the water but by the third time he was running thru it and having a blast...

Just look at that smile on miss L's cute face !

Miss M and cousin A cute little buddies

before and after

Little Mister- ok so I am so embarrassed I waited this long. I was going to take him to my friend Jenni but the kids got sick then birthday stuff and then life... you get the idea well Jenni was on vacation and I could not take the looks from other mom's any longer. We had a great haircut by Miss Alyssa C, Little Mister think along with miss Jenni that she looks like Leia so he did most everything she asked.


LIttle Miss needed a bang trim and thanks to very talented and understanding grandma she got one

sewing machine overload

This year I got to come up with a few things for decor on our women's retreat at church. When I picked out fabric Little miss kept saying pretty to one of the prints so I purchased some to make her a dress...

I got the pattern from a book my sis molly loaned me called The weekend sewer. I love this book I also made aprons and adapted a pattern to make place mat. I also found a great tutiorial ( on how to make coasters...

I found these cute clipboards at craft ware house. I painted them white and modepodged some cute paper onto them then used some rub on decals to add some embellishments.

Found these frames at the dollar store. I used left over paper from above project and found some cute scrapbook embellishments, the second one says joy in white letters.

found these at the dollar store too and just added ribbon to them.

I found this mirror can you guess where... yes the dollar store. I was surrounded by a very ugly silver and pink plastic frame. I tore the frame off used my friendly modgepodge,some paper, ribbon and made this...

I had so much fun and may have to recreate some of these come christmas time :)

Aunt sissa was kind enough to help me try to get some 2yr pictures of little miss. Well she didn't really want her picture taken but big brother was more then happy to pose for the camera

All she wanted to do was take her shoes off and wiggle her toes...
