Everyone is doing great!! The twins are walking everywhere and learning so much every day!! They have to be the best babies though because they are just always so happy and easy going. Yesterday Riley and I had a sitter for them but unfortunately she got a stomach virus and had to cancel. So we just took them with us to Christmas shop, Sushi lunch and then out to shop for new iphones. They just rode in the stroller so happy and fell asleep during lunch. The older kids are doing good too! School has been hard this year (expectations, amount of homework, struggles) for all three kids and they are looking forward to a break, as am I. Despite the struggles every single one of them has made honor roll but it's taken lots and lots of work and time. Riley had a four day weekend and went back to work today. He will work until Friday and then be off until after the 5th of January. I can't wait to have him home and just enjoy doing NOTHING!
So what have I been up too? I million and one things, lol!! So right after before Thanksgiving I started working on Christmas. I like to do a good mix of bought and homemade gifts. I have a lot of fun making things! As well as I took sign orders for friends (I design the photos and then I send them a link to get it printed anywhere). Here are some of my projects to date....
|Hand painted pony shoes for Brit|
|Pony Pillow Case for Brit (made a few extras and gave to friend children's)|
|This was Brit's first sewing project with mom. She sewed down all the strips before we pieced it together. It's a rag blanket for her granny.|
|Brady wanted to give his granny birdseed as a gift so I made a custom tag|
|Made my older boys and my nephew some pajama pants|
|Made some friend some hanging towels|
|Heres another with a custom label|
|From Brennen and Barrett are their curls for their granny. She likes pink so that's why it's not a blue frame.|
|Teacher gift with custom tags|
|Made a kitty pattern for a friend and filled with flax and lavendar|
|Made a few to sell and they are all gone!|
Whew!! I still have a few last things to do and then I'm done!! I can only sew during naptimes mostly. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and I'll be back to write up the boys birthdays and Thanksgiving!!
