little bruiser

This time it was a face plant on the playground. Turns out ice cream made it feel much better.

bed, dress, desk

We're in the middle of a furnature shift at our house lately. Elijah is getting bigger boy things and Emily will be getting his twin bed for a few years till she is ready for her bigger girl bed. We also got Elijah a desk so he could do homework in his room.

On an unrelated note Neil is trying to take better pictures of me. I made the blue dress. I love how comfy it is I'm not totally in love with the style but will be wearing it this summer just the same. I will not be making the pattern again.

Tuesday - Saturday

Tuesday: Elijah had his student lead confrence. He seems proud of his work and we are proud of him.

Wednesday: The kids picked out some horrid icie pops at BJ's

Thursday: Emily and I went to Lowes for a composting box and to look at flowers.

Friday: We all walked to Goodberries.

Saturday: I finally took some pictures at dance. None were great but she is doing the teddy bear dance in this one which is one of her favorites.

busy spring days

Where to begin?

Our new couch is here. You can see a picture of Emily sitting on it right after it came with her feet on the new ottoman. We are thrilled with both. I had no idea how crazy our lack of seating was really making me. On that same note we spent a good bit of the weekend furnature shopping for Elijah's room before deciding to order sight unseen from pottery barn kids. I hope that it arives quickly as Emily has been climbing into her crib lately.

Thursday the kids and I walked to the park and they got icecream from the ice cream truck. The other mom's were giving me dirty looks as I let Emily run around barefoot and let both kids get ice cream scandiously close to dinner time.

I've been enjoying getting to know my new machine and have quite the pile of projects that I want to work on. I'll be posting them on my sewing blog as I get them finished.

Emily has been playing with Elijah's kid tough camera lately but she mostly gets closeups of her face.

My Double

Poor Neil this was supposed to be my Birthday present this year but it arrived in a very clearly marked box so he let me set it up about a month ago. This is a picture of me checking the fit on my new shorts with the waistband pinned on.

Its been another big week here. My parents came to visit and I went out of town.
