Ewww! Gross!

This morning everyone is running every which way and the babies were playing downstairs with all the big kid toys, which is a new favorite thing for them to do. I was getting ready to comb out Olivias hair and braid it for school, but I had to get a few things done first and the kids were busy playing. Isabella came up to me with wet hair and I thought maybe Olivia sprayed her hair with the conditioner since she waiting so patiently for me. So I ran my fingers through her hair trying to comb it out. Well the next time I saw Max he had wet hair too. Hmmm. Well I didn't really think too much of it and went on about my next thing trying to get Olivia out the door for school. I asked Olivia if she had sprayed the babies hair with the conditioner. She said no Harrison did it. I asked her if Harrison had sprayed the babies hair, and she said no Harrison got it wet with the toilet water from downstairs. WHAT!!! Ewww! Gross! Isabella hair had been dripping wet and Max's hair was spiked. Great, nothing like toilet water in your hair and all over your hands. Not to mention that I felt wet spots on the carpet downstairs. Thanks Harrison for adding just that extra little spice in our lives.

Break out the sewing machine cause here I come.....

Since the weather is starting to turn cold I've started sewing. I finally finished Maxwell's quilt and want one for myself. It is so cozy to cuddle up with. I've made one for all of the kids and are in the process of being quilted. Here is a picture of Max's quilt. I also had to include Max's help in decorating his wall. When ever he wakes up in the morning or from his nap he stands up and swings the stars back and forth. He thinks it's the greatest thing. It has actually burnished the wall and has made a worn path and is darker in real life. I put Isabella in his crib for a minute last week and that was the first thing she did...swing the stars. She probably has always watched him do it and has been jealous that she doesn't have stars to swing. A coveted activity.


Also last weekend I went to The Quilt Shoppe in Rigby and bought every Portabellapixie pattern they had. It is the cutest stuff. I've never made kids clothes but this made me want to. I started with the cupcake pincushion. So cute and pretty easy.


Now that we've got those projects out of the way. I am making Olivia's halloween costume...a pink cowgirl. I've found the cutest brown corduroy with pink polkadot and pink on pink fabric to use. I'm using one of the Portabellopixie patterns for the skirt and a vest to match. This week I bought an inexpensive serger to help with all of these projects. I'm a little scared to use it. I'm just going to have to do it and learn hands on. Any advice would be great.

Well I'm off to start another project. Have a great weekend.

Little Beauty

The leaves are starting to turn and it's time for those fall pictures. I didn't have to try to hard to get Olivia to model for the camera. I can't believe how grown up she is becoming.
