My Apron

I totally fell in love with these fabrics. So this is my finished, adult sized apron. The colors are so cute together. I love to express how I'm feeling through the crafts I do. My favorite colors brown, aqua, and green. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was even able to add a little extra with my new sewing machine.

Megs is so cute and all ready to get floured and sugared in this apron.

Anyone want to bake?

This is the apron I made today for little Megs. It turned out cute.

Mommy Sews Megs a Dress

My first attempt at sewing a dress with pockets and a zipper, and it actually fit Megan and looked cute. I'm super excited that I finished something! Have you ever been in a sewing mood? Well, this is what that looks like.
I even sewed on pockets. I was seriously proud of myself. It didn't look terrible, and I was not very optomistic at the beginning of the project.

Dad McEwan got me a new sewing machine, so I've been trying out all the fun stitches it has. I love the stars! Thanks a million dad.

Trying something new

Ok, so nobody laugh, but I taught myself how to make fondant. I really wanted to learn a new technique for frosting birthday cakes. This was my first attempt. Next time it will be prettier, but it tasted great!

14 Years and Counting

On August 12th, Jared and I celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. It was low key. We just went out to dinner and enjoyed being alone together. (that doesn't happen often!!) I'm glad I found such a wonderful man to share my life with, and to be the father of my beautiful children. I'm blessed!

1st Day of School

Gavin and Kenzie couldn't wait for school to start. I admit I was ready for them to go back as well. I can't believe how grown-up Kenzie looks. My babies are getting big.

Megan finds a friend

Megan fell in love with my aunt's little teacup poodle Cabbie! They were so cute together. That little dog was just the right size for Megs.

Pool time

Over the summer we went to great-grandma's house. The kids loved getting in the pool. They were having a blast!

She's on the move

Laney started crawling in August. We can't keep up with her now. She's fast.

Laney's First Teeth

In July, Laney got 2 teeth on the same day. Right on babygirl. Yes, I'm still breastfeeding. Ouch!!!
