a little creativity of our own...

...my sis made me do this...we made these little dresses in a few hour burst of creativity one evening late into the night...I was sick of it after one dress...she persisted and encouraged and we got them all done...she will be good at encouraging her own kids efforts one day...

lights, camera, action...

...a friend has an etsy shop for her creations and my girls tried some on to display the pieces...and quality pieces they are too! I was impressed...creative and well done...check them out HERE. Hey, if we live close to you, I'll bet you can just pick it up from me instead of paying shipping!
Baby leggings, soooo cute and cuddley!

...first we spent the day watching Daddy climb this mountain...
...Nevada High Point: Boundary Peak...
...then we spent the day waiting for Daddy to climb this mountain...
...Half Dome...on a scale of 1-10 it's an 11...
...then...we spent time with nature...great trip with family...

...calling all interior designers!

half window...vaulted ceilings...bay windows...arched window...I need to work with all of this to make a window treatment...and there is a light that shines from the street into this bedroom all night long...so we need to darken it too...and I need help!! So, we bought this this place. A fixer upper. We signed on it the day I went into labor. :) My husband has done and incredible job with everything (with the help of a lot of wonderful people). I've hesitated to post pictures and tell about this project as it's been one looooong project and is still a daily work in progress. But I'm to the point of decorating a bit. And I want help with my ideas! And I thought, my blogger friends will help! I have some pretty talented friends. In this way, you can also see the new place...it's been fun...please give me your ideas, advice, even criticism, and I'll have some fun decorating and post the finished pics too!
..okay, so this is a trivial item, but should the valance hang with the line of the ceiling or the floor, slope or straight? Any other input on this tough-to-work-with window?

ha! ha! ha!

Baby H. just had her first ever belly laugh last week at three months old. I was pushing little M in a swing and thought H was having a coughing fit. Then I realized, she was laughing! My friend grabbed her cell phone to record it, thanks! That's all baby H you hear, it's the funniest baby laugh! (pause my music to hear!)
