P#3 playing Wii sports, plus another apron

P#3 LOVES watching P#1 play the Wii, so I decided to let him try for himself and it was quite amusing! He could actually somewhat do it!Now it will be hard to tell him no!

I just finished another apron, the pattern looked pretty difficult so i used some cheep fabric i had laying around in case i messed up. It was super easy and the fabric turned out great, its very shabby. It looks even better on.

just another day

My day started early as always, P#3 actually slept in only cause we had another sleepless night. I talked to my aunt this morning via Facebook, it was nice to chat with her for the few minutes while i drank my coffee. I've been watching my friends baby, who is 5 month's old and has the sweetest personality. She is so good too, she actually makes it pretty easy. I got to finish my sisters birthday present while P#3 napped. And today was early release for P#1 so he helped alot too. Anyways, just wanted to share my day.

P#3's early morning play time

The apron i finally finished for Courtney's Birthday

The hubs cooked us spaghetti for dinner tonight, and also showed us his sweeter side in P#2's apron! and she didn't like it!!!!!

Dinner time

P#3 really enjoyed it( sorry about the bad picture quality)

This morning i received a package from my Grandma, she sent me a gold wedding band that was my great-great grandmothers.She wrote a very lovely note and also included a family tree from her side of the family. It was very interesting considering I have never known.The ring belonged to her great grandmother born 1890. Here is part of the note.........

"Wear this ring with all the love that embodies what it represents

Sent to you with all my undying love and support"

I made this skirt and matching ruffle butt nickers for my neice. The skirt turned out cute, but the nickers were another creation of mine, i made some wrong measurements and had to end up adding the side pieces and the top casing, which I'm not to sure about. Anyways hope Miss likes her new strawberry skirt!

crafts and gardens

Yesterday P#2 and I did a little crafting. I got lucky that P#3 took a 3 hr. nap, so i sewed her another apron(like she needs anymore!). It didn't turn out quite like i had hoped. I didn't use a pattern so i just went with it, and i guess my ideas were going faster than i could think so i ended up having to add an extra strap, the one that crosses in the back, i think it turned out way to crazy looking. Oh well, she loves it. P#2 then decides she wants to bead cause she hasn't done it in forever. We ended up 2 beautiful pieces.

We also got tons of yard work done. Our weeds were way out of control. We finished planting our garden. Thanks to Lowe's and the hubs boss we have tons of fresh fruit and veggies to look forward to! The kids cant wait to harvest them!! I just hope that they will survive in sand?

These are beads that my MIL got for P#2,they are made by women in third world countries,very cool The necklace I made for myself
The necklace P#2 made for herself
